Road building equipment from Cat and Boyd CAT is engineered to withstand the toughest of conditions. Cat forestry machines set the standard for the industry, and the company’s road building equipment is no exception.

We offer machinery for all aspects of road building: track-type tractors for versatile clearing and grading; excavators for removing obstacles and debris; hydraulic excavators for large-scale earthmoving; and soil compactors & motor graders for maintaining roads after construction.
