After more than three years of waiting, the popular Cat Operator Challenge is finally back, and we are proud to take part in it! The 2019 event was a great success; our participants loved every minute of it– especially Pierre-Olivier Savoie, Quebec region winner of the last Operator Challenge, and operator at Quebec Iron Ore (Minerai de Fer Québec). The Operator Challenge is an exciting event in which operators from various industries and locations come and show off their skills and compete to become the next world champion.  

To win the title of best operator, participants must complete the following:

1-Local competitions

Sign up and win local Toromont Cat championships by competing against the best operators in their region. One winner will be chosen for each region (Ontario, Quebec, and Manitoba/Atlantic).

2- Regional competitions

Compete against the best operators in North America. Our 3 finalists will travel to North Carolina where they will compete in more challenges.

3- Grand finals

Win the Global Operator Challenge finals, which will take place at the world-renowned CONEXPO in Las Vegas on March 14, 2023. All the operators who won the regional competitions will have to compete in a new series of challenges. The operator with the best skills will win the grand prize!

The Operator Challenge allows us to connect with our customers and strengthen our relationship with them as well as build new connections with potential clients. This event also gives us the opportunity to display our new Cat equipment and demonstrate the power of Cat integrated technologies.

We are organizing the following 3 challenges in six different cities where operators will be evaluated according to their performance:

Challenge #1 : The Big Dig: Dig a trench with Cat Grade 2D technology.

Challenge #2 : Load & Go: Load up to achieve payloads in fewer passes.

Challenge #3 : Backhoe or Bust: Move/position objects to meet objectives.

First local competition - Destination Moncton, N.B.

June 22nd and 23rd marked the official launch of the Toromont Cat Local Championships. Twenty-five operators showed up at MacArthur's Paving Site in Moncton, New Brunswick, ready and eager to prove that they have mastered our new generation Cat equipment. They all shared that they loved the experience. Some, like Joey Longley, an operator at Dexter Construction, said they would love to do this every weekend. The event was a great success. We want to thank the Battlefield team for their collaboration which strongly contributed to the success of this event.

Reporting live from the event, Brian Davis, Construction Solutions Manager, presented the gold medal to Ryan Totton of Gulf Operators, winner of the Atlantic Region! Congratulations Ryan!

The next competitions will take place in the regions of Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba.
