Caterpillar Makes a Rugged Smart Phone

Caterpillar B15 Smart PhoneThis phone is a great idea for just about anyone. The Cat smart phone can withstand a 6ft fall onto concrete and can sit under 3ft of water for up to 30 minutes! And after you get your hand wet fishing your phone out of the water, you can still operate the screen with a wet finger. That’s not only useful for construction workers but just about everyone.

Bullitt Mobile is building the Android phone and it will cost $350.


Caterpillar 797F Mining Truck

Cat 797F Mining Dump Truck

This is Cat’s largest off-highway mining truck and you know it’s a beast when you need a ladder to get the driver’s seat!

The engine is a quad turbocharged 20 cylinder Cat diesel that pumps out 3793 net horse power. This is matched with the Cat seven speed planetary power shift transmission.  This combo let’s you haul 400 tons at a top speed of 42 mph!

The gross weight is 1,375,000 lbs, so don’t try parking this one in your driveway.  You might run into clearance issues too becuase the 797F is also 25 ft tall, 49 ft long and 32 ft wide – that’s quite a foot print.
