CAT Heavy Equipment Explained (Part 2 of 3)

Heavy Caterpillar Equipment For Every Job

Caterpillar (CAT) equipment has over 300 machines created to the highest industry standards to help you get the biggest jobs done right. Sometimes a big job requires some heavy artillery, and CAT has the highest quality heavy equipment to handle whatever you can throw at them. Wagner Equipment can provide you with the following machines and more, so you can get your project accomplished! Contact us today to get started on buying or renting CAT equipment. In this first of three parts, we’ll explain the function and utility of motor graders, wheel tractor-scrapers, wheel loaders, and asphalt pavers.

Motor Graders

When a job calls for the construction of a roadway, you know it is vital that the task is completed correctly. Wagner Equipment has stocked a variety of graders, capable of having a leveling width of up to 24’. Motor graders make use of these blades to level terrain surfaces in preparation for road construction. Having a properly levelled foundation ensures a solid road construction. Additional utility for these machines includes snow or dirt removal from roadways (which can be very useful along the Front Range) as well as removing unnecessary soil layers from other areas of ground. You can view Wagner Equipment’s list of CAT heavy motor graders here, and our on-site technicians can assist you in making the right selection for your job. 

Wheel Tractor-Scrapers

This particular piece of Caterpillar heavy equipment is used in flattening large areas of soil through a scraping mechanism. Blades on the underside of the unit flatten and funnel terrain into a soil hopper, which can then be unloaded in a desired location. The utility of this is invaluable when it is necessary not only to flatten terrain, but to move soil from one location to another. Wagner can provide CAT wheel tractor-scrapers with options like single and tandem engine open bowls, tandem engine push-pulls, elevators, and auger arrangements. Regardless of the requirement for your job, Wagner can provide the new or used CAT wheel tractor-scraper to get the job done right. 

Wheel Loaders

Wagner Equipment provides Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas with the heavy wheel loaders needed for the biggest jobs. There are over 20 front loader options available from Caterpillar, from compact sizes to the monster 994K model with a bucket capacity of over 30 cubic yards. As the name suggests, loaders are used to move and load materials throughout the worksite, and are vital to the smooth operation of any job. View Wagner’s wide selection of CAT wheel loaders here, and let us assist you with making the right choice for your job.

Asphalt Pavers

Asphalt pavers are where the magic happens in road construction. CAT has developed the widest, most versatile variety of asphalt pavers available today, and Wagner can help you determine the right model for the road you need built. Pavers contain a feeding apparatus through which asphalt is continuously loaded by a dump truck, which then evenly distributes the asphalt mixture to a road surface. Wagner can provide you with wheel asphalt pavers, track-equipped asphalt pavers, and models with steel tracks. The features available through CAT’s lineup of pavers are extensive, and Wagner’s expert technicians can guide you through the utility and benefit of each model.
