Quick Tip Video: Advanced Display Setting

Since its beginnings in 1925, Caterpillar® has been a name synonymous with comfort, convenience and innovation. Whether you work in construction, agriculture, forestry, landscaping, mining or a similar industry, you know your Cat® equipment has the tools necessary to get your specific job done to your specifications. One of the best ways to ensure your Cat machinery lives up to its name is through personalization.

Did you know you can configure your machine to meet the needs of your specific jobsite? If you have newer-model Cat equipment, now you can. Watch the video below to learn how to adjust your machines’ settings for the utmost safety, speed and efficiency in your projects.


Hey, I’m Dave with today’s quick tip and today we’re going to take a closer look at our operator settings on our in cab display.

Operator settings allow you to configure many of the settings of your machine that you may want to adjust for your specific project.

Click the button twice and you’ll see several settings you can change.

To navigate between the different setting options, use the buttons directly below the vertical arrows.

These are some of the settings you can adjust to your preference:

  • Drive joystick sensitivity
  • Creep control
  • Limit top end speed
  • Backup camera

All of these items can be changed by using the buttons directly below the horizontal arrows.

Knowing how to navigate your in cab display will help ensure that you get the most out of your machine.

That’s been today’s quick tip, thanks for watching.

Configuring Your Machine to Your Specific Project Needs

As the video above shows, personalizing your Cat equipment with project-specific settings is as easy as using the up and down arrows on your display’s keypad. All you need is a machine equipped with advanced display settings. You’ll then be able to control functions like:

  • Drive joystick sensitivity: For the most delicate projects, you need a machine that can act with the utmost precision. By adjusting the joystick’s sensitivity, you’ll enjoy full stability and control over your task.
  • Creep control: Keep your equipment running at just the right ground-level speed for your needs with the convenient creep control tool.
  • Top-end speed limitations: Prevent your machine from operating at a faster rate than you’d like with the ability to limit your top-end speed to the needs of your project.
  • Backup camera: Like many of the latest vehicles on the market, new Cat equipment comes equipped with a backup camera to give you visual control over the back of your machine for increased safety.

Each facet works together to deliver the utmost dependability and performance to your specific jobsite. We encourage you to customize these settings before beginning each new project you tackle.
