Pimp My Ride, eat your heart out. Check out these new wheels! In the past three weeks, I've had the opportunity to operate a variety of equipment manufactured by my employer, Caterpillar. So cool! I've driven two hydraulic excavators (the name given to the piece of machinery pictured below),
one of the new m-series motor graders,three different models of track-type tractors (bulldozers),the classic American backhoe (I think every small town in the U.S. owns at least one of these),a wheel loader,and a multiterrain loader.
That last piece of equipment--the multiterrain loader--receives the lion's share of my attention at work. I can't tell you how excited I am about the project. You can get a quick overview of it in the following video:
