When you are in the construction media, you get to know many editors from other publications. One of the good guys in the construction media is Frank Raczon, senior editor of Construction Equipment magazine, a Scranton Gillette Communications publication.
Frank recently co-authored a book called “Caterpillar: Modern Earthmoving Marvels,” for Motorbooks. For this book, he details Cat’s largest and most modern earthmoving machines, with vivid explanations of how and why they work the way they do as well as interviews and quotes from Caterpillar’s engineers and operators themselves.
Featuring rare historical photography and insight from noted industrial historian and co-author Keith Haddock, this book offers a glimpse into how the Caterpillar’s rise from an under-the-radar producer of agrarian and industrial equipment led to its modern status as an international construction equipment brand.
Filled with excavators, backhoe loaders, motor-graders, off-highway trucks and more, “Caterpillar: Modern Earthmoving Marvels” is sure to capture the imagination of quarry owners, equipment operators and anyone who enjoys heavy construction equipment.
