The Cat® Trial 9: PAC-MAN™

The ninth Cat® Trial video is PAC-MAN™. Remote operators control Cat machinery, acting as PAC-MAN and those pesky ghosts in a gigantic maze. Who wins?

PAC-MAN powers up with services

PAC-MAN™ is celebrating its 40th anniversary and Caterpillar is celebrating the milestone in an epic fashion with The Cat Trial 9: PAC-MAN™. With the help of skilled operators, the team at Caterpillar built a life-sized game board using the latest Cat machines, attachments and technology.

The players (including Cat customers, expert operators and gamers) used remote controls to operate the giant PAC-MAN™ and the ghosts. Just like every jobsite, they found a challenge waiting around every corner. Luckily, they were able to power up with Cat Services — from FitFleet Customer Value Agreements, to field servicing, to the Cat App and financing options from Cat Financial.
