Caterpillar celebrated a milestone in East Peoria when the 40,000 large Track Type Tractor rolled off the line in building SS.
The production benchmark Thursday corresponds closely with Caterpillar’s 40th anniversary of making the large dozer. It’s one of the company’s most iconic machines. The line includes the D9, D10 and D11.
The D11T that was number 40,000 was built for Teck Resources Limited. According to Caterpillar, Teck has been one of its top customers for more than a decade.
