From a red wavy Caterpillar logo on gray paint to our current Cat® triangle logo on our yellow paint, the look of our brand has evolved significantly over the last 90 years…
A wavy logo/symbol was adopted by the new Caterpillar Tractor Co. All Caterpillar machines were painted battleship gray.
New Caterpillar track-type tractor models were labeled differently from the original 1925 product line.
Caterpillar officially dropped the wavy logo/symbol printed in text, although the wavy logo remained in cast parts for a few years.
Caterpillar changed the paint color of its machines from gray to Hi-Way Yellow.
Caterpillar started using “Cat” on machines. Prior to that only “Caterpillar” was used.
Series letters start appearing on machines after the model name to distinguish new models from the old ones.
