I was just reading my ENR and read an article about Cat's future clean-air measures. These are going to be a lot a numbers at once, but pretty interesting. In 2009, Cat spent $6 million per working day for research & development for new, cleaner diesel engines, and $7.5 billion over the past six years. The article also said that prices will rise by about 12% over the next four years for all new machines. As many people have been pointing out, the engine compartment is about 12 inches taller than current models because of the never restrictiond. Finally, the 336E in the pictures earlier is headed to Kewit for job-testing.
