The Caterpillar Operator Challenge
The Caterpillar Operator Challenge is the world's only international competition bringing together construction equipment operators from very different backgrounds and specialties into a standardized contest that measures operator skills. To win the event, a participant must perform generally well in all tests, which are carried out on a range of different Cat equipment, testing the diversity of the individuals' skills from production loading to precision work tool control. The personal scores from each separate test are added and the person with the highest overall score wins. The tests provide a fine opportunity for showcasing the skill and commitment to excellence of those who, day in and day out, bring out the best from construction equipment. This year, the top operators come from Belgium, Bosnia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Mongolia, the Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Russia, Serbia-Montenegro, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
