Introduced at the 2011 ConExpo-Con/Agg™ trade show in Las Vegas, the Cat® Class 8 CT-660 vocational truck provided customers with a variety of solutions, including many different body types like dump, refuse, hauler, and mixer, for a large variety of job applications. Complementing the equipment product line, the CT-660 offered Caterpillar Dealers’ traditional customers with a vocational truck designed to meet the heavy-duty needs of the market.

The initial CT-660 provided two diesel engine options, the CT11 and CT13 with horsepower ratings ranging from 330 to 475 hp. The second product in the lineup, the CT-680, features a set-forward axle, which provides for higher payloads, and an additional engine option in the CT15 with horsepower ratings from 435 to 550 hp.

“Most of our customers who run yellow iron have trucks as well. The CT-660 gave us an opportunity to strengthen our relationship with them. When they’ve had a good experience, they want to own a truck with Cat® on the front of it.”

Guy Milliken, Yancey Bros. Co.
