Shake Hands with Danger (Classic Cat safety film)

I make no excuses for bringing back this old post from my early days on the Contract Journal version of my Digger Blog. This Cat safety film footage from the 1970ís is almost legendary and itís great to look back at this kind of stuff.

Shake Hands with Danger (Classic Cat safety film)
The film features a whole host of classic Caterpillar machines, including dozers, dumptrucks, motor graders, scrapers, wheeled loaders, tracked loaders like the 977 and 200 series hydraulic excavators. Itís a real machinery fest for any Cat enthusiast, but behind all the wooden acting and cheesy stunts is the serious message, that working with heavy plant and machinery can be a dangerous thing if they are not treated with respect!
