1. I can buy the same exact product from a Caterpillar Competitor Supplier, so why should I pay more for a Cat stamp?
Caterpillar guarantees fit and function and will cover all parts and related labor costs for defects in material and workmanship. Caterpillar follows a rigorous process of quality control unmatched by other competitors. Cat parts are designed to work as a system.
2. Turbos have a large impact on the cost of my engine overhaul. What can I do to lower this cost?
Consider Remanufactured turbos and cartridges. They perform like a new turbo and carry the same factory (12 Month) warranty at a fraction of the cost – reducing the risk of expensive turbo or engine failures which results in lost time and money.
3. I have followed Caterpillar’s maintenance recommendations. Why should I be interested in purchasing a Cat Remanufactured cylinder head when I don’t know the previous owner’s maintenance practices on this critical component?
Multiple cylinder head repair options exist depending upon your repair need. Factory Remanufactured processes return all products to a “same as new” performance even if some parts need to be replaced with new.
4. Why should I buy Cat parts when aftermarket alternatives perform the same in terms of fit and function, reliability and performance but at a lower price?
Non-genuine parts do not consistently meet Caterpillar’s specifications, resulting in a risk of those parts contributing to premature failures. This can result in costly, unplanned repairs and unexpected equipment downtime.
5. Why should I buy Cat fuel injectors when there are others available at a fraction of the cost?
We have examined and tested aftermarket injectors and found that many injectors will not pass our performance tests. We’ve also found worn out parts as well as non Cat parts were used when they were rebuilt. This, along with excessive corrosion and a lack of cleanliness can lead to short injector life and poor engine performance.
6. I know I can find aftermarket cylinder liners if I look on the Internet. Why should I buy Cat liners when they are so expensive?
We have reviewed some competitive liners and found that they were under sized, have had inadequate heat treating which increases the chances for cracks, no roll burnishing which increases the chance of flange breakage, and over sized flanges which might cause an inadequate head gasket “crush”. All Cat parts are designed to work and wear as a system.
