    I though our president went to Peoria & visit the Cat plant & told them the stimulus was going have them calling people back for the shovel ready jobs the stimulus was to fund in the near future???

    Actually, I thought President Obama said that the president of Cat told him that if the economic stimulus package was passed that they would be rehiring their workforce.  Has that happened?

    I imagine, in industrial application, companys that invested in Caterpillar equipment have always known that if push came to shove, they should be able to get a few more years out of that up for replacement unit, with not much more than an oil change.  With this I also imagine when the unit finally loses its efficiency they will buy another cat.  How is Manitowok doing?
