Event: Hastings Deering Dig Day

Queensland Caterpillar dealer Hastings Deering is holding its 6th Dig Day on Saturday 7 May, allowing contractors to try and — hopefully — buy machines from the entire Cat Building Construction Product range.

Rain bucketed down on the company’s last ‘boots on’ Dig Day in November, but still 300 heavyweights from the building, construction and earthmoving industries, from as far as North Queensland and Darwin, converged on the Acacia Ridge site with over 130 live machine demonstrations conducted on the day.

“A record 30 contractors bought machines on the day,” Hastings Deering Building and Construction Industries’ Simon Turnbull says. “That tells us the rain really just made their experience more realistic and there were certainly no complaints.

“We pulled out all stops to create a real industry-leading event. We combined the ability to experience CAT product first hand, together with attractive offers on pricing, finance and servicing. This made it a ‘must attend’ for a lot of people.

“May 7 will be our sixth Dig Day demonstration event allowing contractors to roll up their sleeves and put machines through their paces in real construction environments,” he adds.

“You wouldn’t buy a car without a test drive and, with over 200 pieces of Cat machinery in one place, this is certainly the opportunity to do just that.

“Our entire range will be available, including the all new D Series skid steer loader range (with hand/foot control options) and the all new E Series excavators,” Turnbull says. “We will also have parts and service on display with key Caterpillar factory staff available to talk through all aspects of the machinery and new technology advancements.”
