JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The city of Jonesboro hopes a big cat will help keep ditches clean and streets free of flooding.

The Jonesboro Street Department rolled out this bad boy to help with its ditch cleaning efforts.

The brand new Caterpillar 325 excavator is one of four machines set aside solely for ditch maintenance.

According to a social media post by the City of Jonesboro, the machines will help crews be "more efficient and effective when completing these projects."
