Caterpillar hosting 84 operators for regional Semi-final Global Operator Challenge

This week marks the beginning of the Global Operator Challenge regional semi-final events. Caterpillar has invited 84 of the best equipment operators in the world to compete to become one of only nine global finalists moving on to round three competition held during CONEXPO-CON/AGG next March in Las Vegas.

The challenge tests the skills and precision of equipment operators as they prove their excellence in operating Cat® equipment and technology, along with their ability to master any piece of construction machinery safely and efficiently.

“More than 10,000 operators around the world registered to compete in the Global Operator Challenge this year,” said Jessica Nunley, global marketing manager for Caterpillar. “After dealer qualification, 3,500 machine operators competed in the first round, and 84 of those have advanced to compete in one of our regional semifinal events held this month in Spain, the United States, Japan and Brazil.”

“These operators come from many different industries, and each have their preferred piece of equipment to operate, but they have one thing in common. They are leaders in their field and can apply their operating skills to a range of equipment,” said Matt Smith, global marketing manager for Caterpillar. “The dealers did a great job turning out the best operators, and now Caterpillar will put them to the test at our demonstration centres around the world.”

DIG INTO THE COMPETITION

During each portion of the Global Operator Challenge, participants execute a variety of tasks, such as digging a trench, loading a precise amount of dirt, and hauling or maneuvering the equipment through a variety of obstacles. Scoring is based on the operator’s skills, efficiency, as well as his or her competence in using integrated technology to enhance the machine’s performance.

“Because this is a global competition, we want to make certain that spectators all over the world can follow along with the action,” Nunley said. “We will be posting live competition updates and sharing the operator’s machine expertise on our regional social media pages during every challenge.”
