Maximise your work time with Cat® Planned Maintenance Kits and Self-Service Options.
As far as your Cat® dealer is concerned, saving you time and money is all part of the partnership. So helping you avoid downtime is their number one priority. That’s the idea behind Cat Planned Maintenance (PM) Kits and Self-Service Options (SSO). They have all the genuine Cat parts you need to perform your own maintenance and repairs.
Planned Maintenance Kits – the smart way to do maintenance
A Cat PM Kit contains all the genuine Cat parts you need for your machine’s specific maintenance interval – parts like filters, fluids, gaskets, and seals. Cat PM Kits help eliminate guesswork, saving you time so you can focus on getting the job done. They’re available for an extensive range of Cat machines and are backed by the standard Caterpillar parts warranty. They’re also super easy to customise.
When you purchase your PM Kit at parts.cat.com, you can buy it as it comes – or it’s simple to add or remove items. If you prefer, you can call or drop into your Cat dealer and have them put together your kit for you. Either way, what goes into your kit is up to you.
As always, your Cat dealer can provide you with the support you need to help keep your machine running at peak performance. As Caterpillar Aftermarket Services Consultant Pei Ting Tan says, “We know time is money for customers. Ordering Planned Maintenance Kits online at parts.cat.com makes ordering easy and eliminates the need to prepare lists – it’s all done for them.”
Self-Service Options – making DIY more straightforward
When it comes to DIY repairs, Cat SSO are repair kits designed for your specific machine, giving you everything you need. Every SSO comes with all the required genuine Cat parts backed by Caterpillar warranty, step-by-step instructions including safety and contamination control guidelines, as well as recommended tooling, with an option to purchase tools at the same time. Everything you need is all boxed up – so you can do it yourself and get back to work. Plus, if you need technical support, your Cat dealer is ready to help with whatever you need.
SSO have been developed for over 400 Cat machine models and size classes including excavators, wheel loaders, dozers, motor graders, compact track loaders, skid steer loaders and more. Repair options include minor engine bolt-on, service brakes for drivetrains, hydraulics and more.
As Aavin Goswami, Caterpillar Self-Service Options Consultant points out, “Self-Service Options have been designed to simplify the repair process for customers who prefer to do repairs on their own. Cat dealers can provide guidance with selecting the right SSO, and work with their customers to provide flexible solutions for ongoing machine management.”
Customer Value Agreement (CVA) – your hassle-free ownership plan Perhaps you’re looking for an ongoing support plan. A Cat CVA ensures your Caterpillar equipment is kept in top working order, making it easy to own and ready to work. CVAs are available in a range of plans delivered by your Cat dealer – from a full- service equipment protection plan, to having maintenance kits delivered at the right time for your own installation. Your Cat dealer will be able to talk you through their range of support plans.
Your Cat dealer is dedicated to helping you maximise your work time and keep your equipment running at its best. So why not make the most of the partnership?
Order your Cat PM Kit or SSO online at parts.cat.com or pick up from your local Cat dealer. And if it’s a more thorough ongoing support plan you’re after, talk to your dealer about a CVA that’s right for you.
