Caterpillar launches operator challenge

By Andy Brown17 February 2022

Caterpillar has launched the 2022-2023 Global Operator Challenge, which offers the opportunity for machine operators from around the world to showcase their skills operating Cat machinery.

In the 2019-2020 challenge, 67 Cat dealers hosted local competitions, and operators from 30 countries participated. According to Caterpillar, the 2022-2023 competition will be the company’s largest construction industry event of its kind.

“More than 80 Cat dealers will host local, one-of-a-kind competitions, celebrating equipment operators and enabling them to showcase their exceptional skills in fun and dynamic ways,” said Tony Fassino, group president of Construction Industries.

“Whether their expertise lies in digging a trench, moving aggregates or managing demolition, our Global Operator Challenge will be demanding for even the most experienced operators.”

The first round is from March to September 2022, and dealers will feature three different challenges on three separate pieces of equipment. Scoring is based on the operator’s skills, efficiency, as well as his or her competence in using integrated technology to enhance the machine’s performance.

Qualifiers from the local dealer events will then move to regional semi-final competitions in October 2022. Nine finalists will emerge from the regional semi-finals and participate in the final competition in March 2023 at Caterpillar’s outdoor Festival Grounds exhibit during Conexpo-Con/Agg in Las Vegas, US.

The winner will receive an all-expense-paid trip for two to a Caterpillar facility worldwide.
