The Caterpillar 797 is a series of off-highway, ultra class, two-axle, mechanical powertrain haul trucks developed and manufactured in the United States by Caterpillar Inc. specifically for high-production mining and heavy-duty construction applications world-wide. In production since 1998, the 797 series represents Caterpillar’s largest, highest capacity haul trucks. The current, third-generation model, the 797F, offers one of the largest haul truck payload capacities in the world, up to 400 short tons (363 t) and is the world’s largest, highest payload capacity, mechanical drive haul truck. Although the price varies based on individual customer specifications, each 797 costs approximately USD $5,000,000.
So now ask yourself this, would you rather wear boots made by the same guys responsible for the abovementioned truck – LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT THING! – or would you prefer that your dainty little tootsies were enveloped in a velveteen slipper that you found in a dewdrop perched on the tip of a lilly that smell like your granny’s perfume and sound like a lisp whenever you take a step?
If you chose the former then you’ll be glad to know that we’re giving away a pair of Caterpillar boots in the style of your choice.
Simply comment on this blog post, telling us why you need such tough boots, let us know what style of shoe you want (you can check out the range, here), and we’ll hook you up.
