Caterpillar Crowns World Champion of 2022/2023 Global Operator Challenge


More than 5,500 machine operators worldwide have been competing in the Caterpillar Global Operator Challenge since the spring of 2022, and one of them emerged as the “World Champion” – the best Cat construction machine operator on the planet.

Patrick Doheny of Australia took the crown out of 9 finalists from around the world who competed in the final round of the Global Operator Challenge in the Cat Operator Stadium at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, in Las Vegas.

Caterpillar’s year-long Global Operator Challenge is one of the largest construction industry events. The Challenge highlights the amazing ways construction machine operators masterfully guide Cat machines and use the latest technologies to get the job done.

“Caterpillar created this competition to celebrate machine operators who build our world, advocate and drive awareness for their trade, and highlight solutions that address jobsite challenges,” said Jason Hurdis, Caterpillar Global Operator Challenge execution lead and Global Market Professional. “All of the competitors – and especially our 9 finalists – showed tremendous skills and abilities operating the latest Cat construction machines and technologies, maneuvering through some difficult challenges and showing the world the invaluable role they play in infrastructure creation.”

The competitions included digging a trench, loading a precise amount of dirt, and hauling or maneuvering the machines through obstacles.

The final round was the ultimate test of precision. Grouped into teams of 3, the finalists competed individually and as teams, as they faced challenges in a specially constructed stadium featuring stands, fans, big-screen TVs, and play-by-play announcers.
