The history of Caterpillar is all about doing: creating, building, problem solving, innovating, testing, servicing and improving. Enjoy the ingenious machines from our rich heritage, and more importantly, the people who founded and built the company one breakthrough at a time. Beginning with Benjamin Holt and C. L. Best, the people of Caterpillar have always been – and continue to be – extraordinary.
2009 - Holt No. 111 is an amazing steam-powered, full size replica of the first Caterpillar track-type tractor ever sold. The builder, Don Hunter, spent nine years constructing this amazing machine. Don is not with us today but we recognize his accomplishment.
