Caterpillar Inc. History, Caterpillar Truck Models and Caterpillar Truck Battery Replacement

During the 1890s and 1900s, farmers had to depend on the heavy steam tractors that were not that easy to be used in the farmlands. In search of a solution to that, Benjamin Holt, an American inventor came up with a new type of tractor which was successfully tested in the thanksgiving day of 1904. It was reported that the company photographer Charles Clements described that the tractor was crawling like a caterpillar and from there, Holt decided to name it- “Caterpillar”. This is believed to be the base of Caterpillar Inc. which would become one of the major players in the heavy equipment and engine industry within two decades.

Holt Caterpillar Company started its journey in 1909 following the purchase of a factory in East Peoria, Illinois. Benjamin Holt, one of the founding fathers of today’s Caterpillar Company died at the age of 71. The banks to whom Holt Caterpillar Company owed money forced the Holt board of directors to accept Thomas A. Baxter as the successor of Holt. C.L. Best and Holt Caterpillar merged in 1925 to form Caterpillar Tractor Company. With time, Caterpillar expanded to become a massive player in the heavy equipments industry and has produced some of the world’s best tractors, motor graders, backhoe loaders, wheel loaders, hydraulic excavators, off-highway trucks and agricultural tractors.
