The EU will take a hard look at Caterpillar's (CAT -0.9%) $810M cash deal to buy Germany's MWM Holding, saying initial probes are finding competition problems in the gas-fueled generator set market. Cat is trying to buy the company from P-E firm 3i Group, which beat out Cat to an MWM purchase four years ago.
