Formed in 2014 after a hugely successful ‘Caterpillar’ Rally at Lake Goldsmith, Victoria, Chapter 19 has a shed at the Lake Goldsmith earthmoving arena which serves as a display centre for our members collections where the general public can come and enjoy the story of Caterpillar equipment. Our members also get special access to technical information, tooling and replica parts along with discounted ACMOC, Chapter and Caterpillar merchandise. You do not need to own a Caterpillar tractor to be a member, we have many members that just enjoy the history of earthmoving and the Caterpillar brand and the camaraderie of being in a Club like ACMOC. Chapter 19 also offers membership renewal services locally and is a NHMA member Club, offering public liability insurance Australia wide. We serve the States of Victoria & Tasmania, but also have members across all of Australia.

Performance Handbook -moved to the history books


Not quite in the antique realm, but certainly another Caterpillar institution in the Performance Handbook is destined to the pages of history. In its current format since 1970, the Performance Handbook will cease to be published, with the 2020 (edition 49) being the last ever edition. Reflecting digital technology, printed hardcopies made way to an electronic copy only being available, but now even these will no longer be available for download.

Back where it all began

Three tractors leaving dealership

Back in November 2014 following the very successful 'Caterpillar' Rally at Lake Goldsmith, Vic the idea of a second Chapter in Australia gathered momentum, having been registered with ACMOC by Neil Clydsdale not long prior. Here are some photos from the memorable event and subsequent first formal meeting of the founding members at William Adams old board room. Enjoy!
