Truck Service


The durability of Cat Truck Engines is legendary. Many are still in operation after thirty years on the road—and our service staff has the training to service them. In fact, our technicians are the most experienced and best trained in the Midwest, and they’re on call 24 hours, seven days a week.

Our Cat® trained technicians are also ASE and EVT certified, able to service all makes and models of Cat-powered trucks and other domestic diesels. We are fully equipped to diagnose the latest technology incorporated in the electronic and emissions controlled engines on the road today.


Altorfer is authorized to perform warranty repairs on Cat on–highway engines in all kinds of vehicles, from semis to fire trucks to RVs. And with Caterpillar’s World Parts Distribution Headquarters and On-Highway Engine Manufacturing facilities located in the middle of our territory, we’re better prepared than anyone to meet your most urgent service needs.


Talk to your local Altorfer Cat Truck Center about customized service agreements available for your truck that will help you get more work done at a lower cost. These flexible agreements can cover individual systems, single trucks or entire fleets and range from simple preventive maintenance kits to sophisticated total cost performance guarantees.

With a service agreement, you have more time to focus on what you do best: running your business while trained Altorfer Service Technicians keep your truck running at maximum efficiency.


No matter where your truck takes you, our Truck Service Centers located in Elmhurst and Hammond, IN are close at hand and staffed to get you back on the road fast.

Each of our Altorfer Cat Truck Centers offer full chassis service for our customers. We are dedicated to diagnosing and repairing even the most difficult problems encountered by today’s truck owners.


Altorfer offers guaranteed low cost engine overhauls on all makes of Caterpillar powered trucks. Altorfer uses genuine Caterpillar parts overhaul kits. Service history is checked to insure your engine has all the latest factory updates. Based on the life of your engine and your buying needs, we offer Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum OPT overhauls. Please check out the best, before trying the rest!
