Gregory Poole Equipment Company hosted a CAT Next Gen demo event at the Caterpillar Visitor’s Center on October 2 – 3. SITECH Mid-Atlantic provided machine technology support and resources for demo attendees.
The heavy machinery demo included stick time on a CAT excavator fitted with Trimble Earthworks gear as well as other CAT integrated machines.
Sales, service and technical staff were on hand from SITECH Mid-Atlantic to demonstrate lasers, data collectors and other GPS equipment to customers.
Propeller Aero, partners with SITECH in drone technology, completed drone flights on site and set up demo events for interested customers. Trimble Status pairs with Propeller Aero to produce and process quick flight results.
Customers were also given an opportunity to refresh Business Center skills with the SITECH MA GPS team.
Trimble Earthworks GO! on a compact skid steer also attracted a lot of customer attention.

The recently released Trimble TSC7 is always a big interest at customer events.
SITECH Mid-Atlantic recently hosted a machine control demo for its Central and Eastern North Carolina customers at Caterpillar Visitor’s Center in Clayton, North Carolina. Customers were treated to free 2 day event which included on-site machine and classroom instruction.
Participants from all across North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia attended the event.
Cold weather and even snow did not deter customers from testing out Trimble Earthworks on the Cat excavator.
Networking and information-gathering was an important aspect of the demo.
Customers had an opportunity for training on lasers and GPS equipment in one of Caterpillar’s outdoor areas.
Classroom instruction on Business Center and the use of various software and GPS tools was a strong goal of the demo event.
Machines were a big draw at the event with many customers waiting in sleet and falling temperatures to test Trimble Earthworks on Caterpillar’s large demo field. Operators enjoyed the ease of use and ingenuity of this exciting new construction technology.
