let's talk careers


Interested in a career with WesTrac? We’ll have team members from various departments on-site every day to answer any questions you might have about Cat machinery, technology solutions and job opportunities at WesTrac.

While our display is designed to showcase Cat equipment, its other purpose is to inspire you (and your children) to explore exciting career options and opportunities in the construction industry and at WesTrac.

The RC Challenge Competition - WIN AN RC EXCAVATOR!

maxresdefault (1).jpg

Just like in previous years, we'll have a fun experience for the older Cat kids and adults!

In 2024, our Kids Dig Pit will be taking on a brand new format - this year kids (aged 8 and over) and adults will be given the chance to remotely control a toy 1:16 scale model Cat 320 Excavator valued at $811.95 and navigate it around a mini construction site.

Every person who lines up for the experience will be given a job to complete (just like a real earthmover) within an allocated time frame and, at the end of DD&T, we'll be awarding a major prize to the fastest time. 

The challenge will involve you using the RC Excavator with Grapple attachment to move a LEGO log and a ball into place, as fast as you can. You'll have one minute to learn the controls and two minutes maximum to get the job done. 

Want to check out the RC excavator in advance? Check out the video below and get excited! Want to skip the queue and just buy it now? Click here.
