Equipment operators from across Ring Power’s North & Central Florida territory competed in regional events at Ring Power’s St. Augustine branch on Wednesday, April 27, and Ring Power’s Riverview branch on Wednesday, May 4.
A total of 66 operators from 44 companies competed during the two events.
Operators were scored on safety, speed, accuracy, and operating best practices on three different challenges. They were encouraged to use the latest Cat Payload and Grade technologies featured on the equipment to assist them in hitting the targets faster and more accurately.
Load Me Up
Operating a Cat 972M Wheel Loader, operators were challenged to load 19 tons of dirt into a Cat 725 Articulated Truck, without going over…or under.
The Big Dig
Using a Cat 330 Excavator, operators were tested on speed, productivity, and accuracy, while digging a trench 1 bucket wide x 4’ deep x 25’ long.
Stay on Track
While maneuvering a Cat 279D2 through an obstacle course full of “ups” and “downs”, Operators completed a series of skills tests while also battling the clock.
The Grand Prize Winner was determined by calculating the contestants’ scores for all three challenges.
The Operator with the best score was named the winner and was awarded $500 and a Cat cooler.
