On page 6 of this issue, you’ll notice a new icon next to the headline “Caterpillar Showcase.” Anytime you see this icon in the future, it means we have extra content available on our web site, Its placement within the hard copy magazine indicates where on the web site you will find it. In this case, you will find a link on page 6 in our digital publication, which will take you to a YouTube video, courtesy of Hawthorne CAT, demonstrating the Caterpillar D7E dozer, Hawaii’s first hybrid-electric engine. The digital magazine is easily accessed by clicking on the current cover on our home page. In ensuing issues, we hope to bring you a variety of additional material, from video and photos to supplemental information and data, and perhaps even a promotion or two.
