PEORIA, Ill -- Caterpillar said Thursday that the company had its 23rd straight three month period of retail sales growth.

Total sales were up 12-percent overall during the period ending in April, despite slowing sales in Europe and Latin America.





North American sales were up 32-percent in February, March and April.

That off-set a drop in sales in Latin America.
