Bare-Frame Artic Trucks

Larry Stewart, Executive Editor | September 28, 2010

Caterpillar will offer a family of articulated-truck bare chassis to support specialty machines not included in the Cat product portfolio. Sales of the bare chassis (standard configurations and long rear frames) without the dump bed will be targeted toward Cat dealers and original equipment manufactures who specialize in applications such as water trucks, high capacity waste, lube and fuel trucks and the like. Working with dealers, OEMs and end-users, Caterpillar OEM Solutions Group can assist with application and integration issues, helping determine the best solutions for mounting a variety of tools and attachments.
