About Ohio Cat Equipment


Ohio Cat® was founded in 1945 and acquired by the Taylor family. The family maintained the business across three generations to today, and the current President, Ken Taylor, is actively involved in the day-to-day operations. Just as in 1945, Ohio Cat is an authorized Caterpillar dealer, among approximately 50 Cat Dealers in North America. As a dealer working with Caterpillar, The Cat Rental Store is one of the product and service lines offered by Ohio Cat. However, being a Cat dealer is more than selling, renting, and servicing a few tractors, track loaders, and motor graders—Caterpillar now produces over 300 machine models, more than 500 types of engines, financial products, and a growing array of technologies to help customer manage their equipment to be more efficient and more profitable.

As a result of innovation, growth and change, we have become a Cat Dealer with an Equipment Division, Power Systems Division, Agricultural Division, Con/Agg Division, Hydraulics Division, Fuel Systems Remanufacturing Division and a leasing company. The Cat Rental Store is a part of the Equipment Division of Ohio Cat, yet customers benefit from the resources of multiple divisions to provide the one-stop shop experience. It is through our history and our broad equipment solutions for many industries which allows our customers comfort in finding simple solutions with Ohio Cat and The Cat Rental Store.

What does this mean to you? As a customer of The Cat Rental Store of Ohio Cat, we have the capability to offer you a large catalog of equipment options that will best suit your latest projects. We know your bottom line is what is important, so we make every effort to help you increase efficiencies through improved technology and the best in class equipment and services. Whether you're renting a telehandler, planning a complex dewatering pump project, needing a used screening plant, or buying an excavator, we have specialists for a variety of tasks. Just contact us and we'll aim you in the right direction to move forward on your project.

Hydrema 912HM Dump Trucks Now Available for Rent

We are pleased to introduce the Hydrema 912HM to our line of Articulated Dump Trucks at the CAT Rental Store. This versatile dump truck lets you work in conditions and terrain that were previously out of bounds for normal dump trucks. With its 800 mm wide 30" wheels, high ground clearance and unique center pivot mounted precisely between the axles, this machine has some very unique characteristics. In soft terrain it will in many cases eliminate the need to lay out expensive trackway for more cost efficient earthmoving. The 912HM's low ground pressure - 7.6 PSI front / 12.3 PSI rear - is ideal when it comes to installation and maintenance jobs on golf courses and similar soft conditions.

Contact your local CAT Rental Store today for more information about the Hydrema 912HM Dump Truck.
