Toughquip, LLC releases the new 2005 Caterpillar® Buyer Information Guide. The detailed, Caterpillar® Equipment quick reference guide has become very popular among contractors, independent and OEM equipment dealers, appraisers and auction companies. In addition to updating Toughquip has added additional equipment in the 2005 Guide, including Asphalt/Concrete paving equipment and vibratory compactors. The engine section has also been upgraded to include On-Highway Truck engines showing engine model, engine serial number, horsepower/RPM rating and country of origin.

As a result of many contractors and independent equipment dealers requesting immediate access to the Caterpillar® Information Guide, Toughquip has established a download zone. The download zone includes individual equipment as well as the complete 2,038 page buyer information guide in Adobe® pdf format.

Information for more than 1,900 serial series models include: serial number year model determination, transportation data; weight, height, length and width, original equipment specification, country of origin, upgrades by serial number, engine model, horsepower and engine serial number. The Caterpillar Equipment Buyer Information Guide includes most Caterpillar construction equipment models from 1960 through 2004.

Equipment upgrades, by serial number, are included on all applicable models. The user, at a glance, can determine if the used equipment has the latest increased speed runout transmission gears, increased torque-rise engine, improved variable capacity torque converter, flow amplified steering, increased backhoe digging forces, etc.

The "Quick-Glance" single-page format allows the user to get all the information on a specific machine without flipping through several books.

John Morris, President of REO Construction, said, "I use the Toughquip Information Guide when replacing equipment. The guide is so easy to use and has a lot of, hard to find, information."

The Toughquip Caterpillar Equipment Buyer Information Guide is priced at $85.00.

Toughquip is dedicated to providing heavy construction equipment information to the buyers, sellers and owners of such equipment. Toughquip is continually gathering and compiling equipment data on brands such as Caterpillar, Case, Komatsu and Deere to better inform the industry.
