Design Principles Behind Cat Ground Engaging Tools

Alone, ground engaging tools can influence machine performance by 5%, 10%, and even up to 20%!


Components are designed for specific machine kinematics, to meet rated load requirements, reduce stress levels and withstand high breakout force and impact conditions.


Innovative retention solutions combined with robust product development deliver long lasting, high performance Ground Engaging Tools. With a wide range of options available to meet all applications.


Self-sharpening designs, low profile geometry, and light weight solutions. Fill your bucket to capacity every time. The hammerless retention systems are simple, safe, reliable, and easy to change.

Ground Engaging Tools For Dozers

With its main work tools, the blade and ripper, dozers move ground at mines, construction sites, residential developments and hundreds of other places.

Achieve a balanced system by reducing operating costs and maintenance intervals, leading to more productivity. 

Safer, Simpler Installation

Easier handling of edges at first install or during rotation to wear opposite edges.

Minimal Throwaway

Multiple edge sections allow you to rotate or replace only the worn areas.

Improved Productivity

Have both end bit penetration and long cutting edge life, resulting in less maintenance.

Ground Engaging Tools For Motor Graders

Caterpillar offers a wide range of cutting edges for motor graders. Each provides certain benefits when used in the appropriate application. Using the right edge is critical for enhancing production and keeping total costs to a minimum.

There are two basic edge shapes—flat and curved—with serrated edges available in both configurations.
