CATERPILLAR TO DISPLAY NEW MACHINERY AT SDSM& T CAREER FAIR
ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13
At the 1999 South Dakota School of Mines and Technology ( SDSM& T) Career Fair on Monday, September 13, Caterpillar will be displaying two new types of compact construction equipment: the 301.5 Mini Excavator and the 902 Mini Wheel Loader. The equipment will be on loan from Butler of Rapid City - the Caterpillar dealer for North Dakota and South Dakota.
“ I think it will be good to get the new equipment on campus for the students and faculty to see the new developments and technology Caterpillar is involved with,” said Chris Scolton, Caterpillar Test and Development Engineer who will be attending the Career Fair.
Both types of compact construction equipment came out in March 1999 and are geared towards the rental market.
“ The Mini Excavator and Mini Wheel Loader are ideal for use in light construction work such as landscaping, and light utility work,” said Steve Flanery, Butler Operations Manager. “ They are designed for small applications and would be great for the homeowner do- it- yourself type individual. They are primarily used for digging and excavating materials,” he added.
The Caterpillar equipment will be on display in the Surbeck Student Center Ballroom on the SDSM& T campus. The Career Fair will be held from 9: 00 a. m. – noon, and 1: 30 – 4: 30 p. m. There is no charge for individuals to attend.
Over 1200 individuals attended SDSM& T��s Career Fair last year. For additional information on the Career Fair, call Darrell Sawyer, Director of Career Planning and Cooperative Education, at 394- 2667.
