Cat Ground Engaging Tools (GET) protect the expensive parts of your blades, buckets and ripper shanks, resulting in longer life and reducing maintenance costs. Caterpillar GET also play a big part in determining how well your machine performs in a specific application.

WesTrac offers many GET options, because every machine and application has its own special needs. Our GET specialists are well trained and experienced in matching the right tools to the application.

The Cat Difference

Bucket Ground Engaging ToolsCat Ground Engaging Tools (GET) are designed as an integral part of the machine. They feature world-class workmanship and adhere to Caterpillar's stringent quality control standards.

As the world's leading equipment manufacturer, Caterpillar's engineering teams have access to machine design files and associated resources to ensure the parts fit accurately, cutting angles align with equipment parameters and the GET's material breakout forces are rated correctly with machine type.

To ensure the highest level of quality, Caterpillar operate independent GET test sites around the world that allow them to test and refine each tool until strong results are proven; prior to releasing any product to the market.

Cat GET products have been designed to protect the machine's buckets, blades and ripper shanks, resulting in less downtime and increased productivity. The wide variety of product designs and sizes allows for maximum wear protection in virtually any type of environment or application.

Caterpillar continually strives to find new and better methods to ensure high quality in every GET product. This commitment to quality is backed by the GET warranty which covers almost all GET products against breakage under normal operating conditions until the component is completely worn out.
