Here’s what some of our customers have to say about their Cat machines.

Mawson Constructions VIC - Chris Cornall, Service manager
"The operators instantly noticed the performance increase of the 432E backhoe loader."

"The new cabin has more leg room and the tilt down steering wheel is great."

"We’ve found the Cat product works very well and the service, support and spare parts availability plays a big part in our choice."

District Council of Ceduna SA – Grant Drummond, GM of Operations
"Everything on the Cat 432 E-Series was in the right place and the changeover action with the joystick control was very smooth."

"If you are digging and loading a truck you can flow one action into another and you can really pick up the cycle times – I found this very easy with the Cat."

"I think Cat has got the balance of the machine just right."

Kustom Concrete WA – Grant Tanner, Director
"There’s a noticeable difference in breakout force on the new 432E backhoe loader and the cabin is much roomier. There’s a range of improvements all round. It has good vision for the operators and the air con is very good."

"The support we get from our dealer has been very good – there have been no worries any time we’ve needed something."

Roadcare WA - Lindsay Price, Manager
"We have purchased 120H & 12H Motor Graders, a 311C Hydraulic Excavator, four Cat 908 compact wheel loaders, five 272C skid steer loaders, four 287C multi terrain loaders, a range of vibratory compaction rollers and 35 Cat work tools."

"Choosing Cat equipment delivered a range of benefits - the work tools can be readily shared between our three types of machines with no adaptation problems."
