Caterpillar unveils stimulus package…

Caterpillar has announced a stimulus package to help recession-hit customers.

At a time when equipment fleet operators across the world are facing economic and regulatory challenges, Caterpillar Inc. and its global dealer network has unveiled a “stimulus package” designed to help owners work through equipment-related concerns.

Whether those concerns are do-it-yourself maintenance, affordable fleet expansion, financing, operator training or contract maintenance/repair options, the overall goal of the stimulus package is to help preserve the integrity of the machine-owner’s business.

Caterpillar recently has added on-demand videos available through the Cat website and offering maintenance tips for do-it-yourself cost savings. Live online information also is available now through the Parts-and-Service discussion forum. In addition to those new services, Caterpillar and Cat dealers have packaged proven product support and financial services to help customers in most aspects of machine acquisition, operation and maintenance.
