Quick Tip Video: Caterpillar Rebuild

You rely on your equipment to get the job done. The machinery is built tough because it has to take on difficult jobs. But over time, even these tough machines wear down. When your machinery breaks down, your first thought may be to replace the machine. With Caterpillar Rebuild, you have another option available besides scrapping your old machine and buying a new replacement.

Caterpillar Rebuild shows Caterpillar’s commitment to providing exceptional products over the machine’s entire lifespan.


Hi, I’m Collin with today’s quick tip.

Did you know that with CAT Certified rebuilds, you can recover all the performance and productivity of your original machine at a fraction of the price of a new machine?

Complete machine rebuilds include more than 350 tests and inspections, replacement of approximately 7,000 parts, like new machine warranty and genuine CAT original equipment parts and all of this work is performed by trained rebuild experts.

You invested in CAT quality when you bought your machine and with a CAT certified rebuild you can gain new life out of your equipment for many years to come.

That’s been today’s quick tip.

Thanks for watching.


How It Works

When your machine is at the end of its lifespan, you can choose to replace the entire machine. Or, you can choose a Caterpillar Rebuild. During the rebuilding process, expert technicians will take your old machine and get it back to the level of productivity and performance of brand-new equipment.

The technicians will take the main frame of your machine and replace more than 7,000 parts. With the old parts out and new parts in, the machine will feel like it is totally new. Every part used is an authentic Caterpillar part — no off-brand parts are used to cut corners. Other brand parts are not optimized for Caterpillar machines, and the technicians know that.

Throughout the process, Caterpillar technicians complete over 350 tests to ensure every new part goes in perfectly. Every Caterpillar Rebuild has a like-new warranty that backs the quality of the work.

Benefits of a Caterpillar Rebuild

Here are some reasons to choose a Caterpillar Rebuild when one of your assets is at the end of its lifespan:

  • Increase Longevity: Caterpillar takes pride in the quality of their equipment. Over time, even the toughest machine breaks down. With Caterpillar Rebuild, you can increase the longevity of your equipment and get the most out of your machine.
  • Cost: With a Caterpillar Rebuild, you aren’t paying for a total replacement. During the rebuilding process, the technicians may not replace every single part of the machine. This also helps you save even more.
  • Environmental Effects: When you replace your old machinery, some older parts may be saved and reused. But most of that old machine may just be scrapped. Choosing to rebuild your machinery instead of doing a total replacement reduces that waste.

When you’re considering whether you should replace or rebuild your machinery, consider these benefits.
