Cat® Drivetrain Gears: Made to Perform

Cat® engines make the horsepower. And Cat transmissions deliver power to the drivetrain. But it’s the drivetrain gears that transform the horsepower into the work you do every day. Cat gears are designed specifically for your equipment — to improve performance, lower costs and maximize productivity.

Up to 40% of your powertrain costs are driven by four major drivetrain components. Cat® drivetrain gears are essential parts of those components, extending their life and helping your equipment perform better. They’re designed for specific applications, with the entire drivetrain in mind. And because they’re designed to be reusable, Cat gears also help lower your rebuild costs.

The difference is in the design. Genuine Cat drivetrain gears feature: 

  • Gear tooth crowning, root shape and fillet radius to redistribute pressure away from the edges — protecting them from cracking, pitting and bending

  • A smooth surface finish to resist pitting, scoring and excess stress on the gear teeth 

  • Strict size and hardness tolerances for even load distribution and a proper tip land profile

  • Proprietary and application-specific heat treatment processes, including case carburizing, nitriding and induction hardening 

  • Unique metallurgy with special formulas to improve impact resistance and ensure proper load transfer and uniformity

  • Industry-leading power density and reusability 

  • Consistently updated designs

And those features deliver real benefits to your bottom line:

  • Longer life and better performance 

  • Fewer repairs and reduced wear

  • Less chance to break and damage other parts 

  • Decreased powertrain noise

  • Cost savings during rebuilds 

Genuine Cat gears help your drivetrain perform better and your machine work harder. Drivetrain gears from other manufacturers simply can’t offer the same performance. That’s because they’re not designed with the full drivetrain in mind — or for their specific application.

Talk to your Cat dealer about the benefits of genuine Cat drivetrain gears for your mining equipment. Your dealer can also help craft a maintenance plan to optimize your investment and ensure you get the parts and services you need.
