First introduced at the CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2011 tradeshow earlier this year, the new Cat® CT660 Vocational Truck was approved for shipment to customers this month. Though limited production of the CT660 began in June, these initial units were used to assure that manufacturing procedures resulted in a product that meeting the Cat quality guidelines that customers have come to expect.
"Caterpillar is extremely pleased with the response we have received from our vocational truck customers," says George Taylor, director of the company's Global On-Highway Truck Group. "A number of customers, who saw the CT660 for the first time at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, actually ordered trucks before having the opportunity to drive them. I think that speaks highly of their confidence in Cat products and the Cat Dealer Network."
Caterpillar will increase CT660 production in to fill customer orders, Cat dealer rental fleets, and dealer inventory for the third quarter.
