Choosing The Right Certified Rebuild Option For Your Cat® Machine

Cat® Certified Rebuild

A Cat® Certified Rebuild can give your machine a second life for a fraction of the cost of new.

All Cat® owners are looking for value, reliability, good service and support. But not all owners fully understand the value they can realise with a Cat Certified Rebuild – available for a range of machines, including 336 excavators, 777 dump trucks and 988 wheel loaders.


Many businesses choose one of the cost-effective rebuild options, including Cat Certified Rebuilds, offered by Cat dealers, but their reasons vary depending on their situation.

Free up capital
Rebuilding can free up capital for other investments. As your business grows, naturally your fleet must evolve with it. Navigating the challenges of this requires making the best use of existing assets, while planning for the future.

Benefit from new technology

You don’t have to buy a new machine to benefit from new technology and other improvements. Rebuilding is an opportunity to add engineering upgrades that will help your fleet run smarter and smoother.

Keep using the machines your operators know

When you rebuild, you avoid the issue of training staff on completely new equipment, making it easier to keep productivity on track.

Cat® Certified Rebuild


Cat dealers offer a broad range of smart rebuild solutions that work for you, including Cat Certified Powertrain, Cat Machine Component and Cat Full Machine rebuilds.
All three solutions are available for 336 excavators, 777 dump trucks and 988 wheel loaders as well as a range of other machines, including motor graders, compactors and dozers.

Certified Powertrain Rebuild

A Cat Certified Powertrain Rebuild covers your radiator, engine, transmission, torque converter, final drive and axle. All components are disassembled, and all critical engineering updates are incorporated. This option restores your powertrain to like-new performance.
Cat Product Link™ is installed with all Cat Certified Powertrain Rebuilds, meaning your powertrain will generate data that you can use to help boost productivity, reduce costs and manage risks.

Certified Machine Component Rebuild

A Cat Certified Machine Component Rebuild restores the engine or transmission, plus the torque converter, to deliver like-new performance for these components. Critical engineering updates are included with this option.

Certified Full Machine Rebuild

With a Cat Certified Full Machine Rebuild you can recover the performance of your original machine. You’ll benefit from the latest engineering updates and technology, including Cat Product Link™.
In addition to Cat Certified Rebuild options, your Cat dealer offers a range of non-certified dealer machine rebuilds, performed by a qualified technician, with tailored financial solutions available.

Getting the right advice

Whenever a major machine upgrade is required, you have the choice to replace, rebuild or repair. There are many factors that influence this decision, including cashflow and the expected lifespan of the asset.
Advances in technology are also important, helping support productivity gains and reduce costs. Your Cat dealer specialist can provide expert advice on the operational performance of your machine, to design the best rebuild solution to suit your needs.
