Why a CAT® certified rebuild is a great option for your dozer

With the range of Cat® Certified Rebuild options for Cat D6, D8 and D9 Dozers, you can reduce your costs and rebuild your way.

All Caterpillar customers are looking for value, reliability, good service, and support. But not all customers fully understand the amazing value they can realise with a Cat® Certified Rebuild. The truth is that many of the benefits that they anticipate in a new machine – improved performance and technology, as well as new warranty and service agreements – can be achieved with a rebuild option.

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, with so many new technologies available today that support productivity gains and reduce operating costs. While your Cat dealer is the best person to consult with to ensure that you make the right decision for your business, this is a good place to start.

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

Rebuilding can free up capital for other investments. As your business grows, your fleet must evolve with it. Navigating the challenges of this requires making the best use of existing assets, while planning for the future. A machine or component rebuild offered by a Cat dealer gives you the peace of mind of Caterpillar quality with a lower capital outlay.

You don’t have to buy a new Dozer to benefit from new technology and other improvements. Rebuilding is an opportunity to add engineering upgrades and other advances that will help your fleet run smarter and smoother. In other words, you enjoy many of the benefits of a new Dozer at a much lower cost.

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

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 Dozers as well as a range of other machines, including, Motor Graders, Wheel Loaders, Compactors and Track Type Tractors. Whichever option you choose, participating dealers are currently offering an extended warranty or equipment protection plan, with performance, comfort, and safety upgrades available for eligible Dozers. ^

A 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. A Cat Product Link™ is installed on all Cat Certified Powertrain Rebuilds, meaning your powertrain will generate data that you can use to help boost productivity, reduce costs, and manage risks.

A 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.

With a Certified Machine Rebuild you can recover all the performance of your original machine. You’ll benefit from the latest engineering updates and Cat Product Link™ is also installed on all Cat Certified Machine Rebuilds. The result is the like-new performance for a fraction of the price.

A Cat Certified Rebuild is a cost-effective and sustainable way to get your equipment operating like new. Right now, if you rebuild your D6, D8 or D9 Dozer you can take advantage of offers from participating Cat dealers that bring you even more value:

It is all with the aim of helping you reduce your costs and rebuild your way. That’s Aftermarket Smarts.
