Hawthorne Cat recently teamed with Caterpillar to host the “Get In Get Real” national demo event at its Escondido, Calif., branch. More than 125 attendees from the San Diego area were able to see and test-drive more than 20 Caterpillar machines featuring Tier 4 interim technology, including the D6T track-type tractor, 430F backhoe loader, CB44B vibratory compactor, 320EL RR hydraulic excavator and a 140M2 motor grader.
Attendees had more than five acres of open space to dig, grade and move dirt with the Caterpillar machines. Training coordinators were on hand to show attendees the full capabilities and features of the machines.
Hawthorne Cat also set up kiosks to promote key customer services including financing options, Product Link/Vision Link, rental services, product support and service. Attendees who registered online were automatically entered to win a free one-, two- or three-month rental of any Caterpillar machine, sponsored by Hawthorne Cat and Caterpillar.
Hawthorne Cat is the authorized Caterpillar dealer for construction and power equipment in San Diego, Hawaii, Guam, Saipan and American Samoa. A major rental player, Hawthorne Rent-It Services is No. 61 on the RER 100.
