A Caterpillar C6.6 diesel engine, which became available after it was replaced under warranty by the dealership, has been donated by Ransome CAT for use by students at Penn College's Schneebeli Earth science Center. "Since I know the college is always looking for recent engines for instructional purposes, we made the call to Dr. (Mary A.) Sullivan (ESC executive director and assistant dean of the School of Transportation & Natural Resources Technologies) and arrangements were made for the pickup of the engine," said Ron Garber, Ransome’s fluids lab general manager and Whitehall/Fleetwood regional manager. "We had no further cost in the item and it made sense to donate it to Penn College. All dealers in the program keep an eye out for such items ... and make them available whenever we can."
