British Built Cat Backhoe Keeps Evolving

Cat have been building backhoe loaders in Desford for 35 years now, from this world class facility they are exported all over Europe and in some cases even further afield, an incredible production milestone and one that I’m sure would have been celebrated in a big way if it wasn’t for this Covid-19 nightmare that we are all living through right now.

The latest models are now being rolled out and feature a number of new improvements and inbuilt technology like for instance, a smaller but equally powerful engine, seat mounted joystick controls and a touch screen display monitor, which is a first in a backhoe loader.
