The launches will make up almost one-third of the 60-plus items of equipment on show at the construction industry’s largest show, where Caterpillar is taking more than 9,000 sq m (96,000 sq ft) of space.

And along with its German dealer Zeppelin Baumaschinen Caterpillar is exhibiting under the theme of “rewrite the rules” as it aims to show what it calls the renewed efficiencies and profitability of its fleet.

Equipment on show will include the Cat Next Generation excavators, a range of five 1 to 2 t mini-hydraulic excavators and three minis in the 7 to 10 t range – as well as a series of wheeled loaders including the compact zero emission 906.

An expanded range of work tools will also be on the stand, including silenced hammers and multi-processors, while Bauma will also mark the introduction of the PL161 Product Link Locator. This tracks the operating hours and location of work tools, and from the middle of this year it will be standard on most work tools on excavators from 11 t.
