I found these pictures on the CAT Vocational Trucks facebook page. This is the first CAT truck I have scene that is set up for plowing. It's not the set up I would have had put on it but, it's still a nice looking plow truck. I would have had a Everest plow and wing and a Tenco side dump on it. From what I have scene they look like pretty good trucks. I really like the fact they have a CAT C15 under the hood. I wish Maine DOT would buy CAT CT660s instead of Volvo VHDs.

Good luck seeing a truck like that at MDOT. They buy on one thing price, a Cat could be $ 10.00 dollars more and they will by the lower cost everytime.

That CAT truck definitely has the Canadian set up going. Looks pretty slick tho. I'm sure we will be seeing more of them time goes on.

I know, it's not about what's the best, it's about what's the cheapest.

Also think we will see more CAT trucks in the future.

I couldn't agree more. I honestly think they are just a fad and everyone who owns one will have trouble gettings parts for it 10 years down the road.

I have scene a few in my area. The Pelletiers (American Loggers) bought one this Summer and I have scene a few pictures of it hauling 12' wide log trailers. The CAT CT660 will probably just be a fad but, from what I have scene they look like a pretty nice truck.

I miss American Loggers.

Personally, I hope the CAT truck makes it, never a bad thing to have multiple choices to keep the marketplace competitive.
