Cashman Equipment, Your Cat Dealership In 1905, our founder James "Big Jim" Cashman came to southern Nevada looking for opportunities. In addition to his stagecoach line, automobile dealership, the state’s first franchised airline, and Helldorado Days, Big Jim was also heavily involved in the building of the Boulder (now Hoover) Dam. He began the Cashman Equipment story in 1931 by selling six Cat Model 60 Tractors to the project. Today, Cashman Equipment is owned by MaryKaye Cashman, with multiple locations throughout the state and approximately 700+ employees. We provide sales, service, parts, rental, power, and technology solutions throughout Nevada and parts of eastern California. For more than 85 years, Cashman Equipment has taken its commitment to the community and environment of Nevada very seriously. Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the future was one of many motivating factors behind the evolution of the company.
