To keep your Cat® wheel loader in top shape, Caterpillar offers repair and enhancement options for your machine. But how do you know where to begin? First, consider:

  • How long do you plan to own your wheel loader?

  • How much/often do you use your wheel loader?

  • What is your expectation regarding price? 

  • How quickly does your wheel loader need to get back to work?

 

PLANNED MAINTENANCE OPTIONS  

To get the best value from your mining wheel loader, component repairs must be completed on schedule. Repair-before-failure maintenance ensures the lowest cost of repair.

 

HYDRAULIC OPTIONS  

Is your hydraulic system leaking? That may be a sign of contamination. Contamination can lead to major internal damage and catastrophic failure if not caught in time. 

That may sound overwhelming, but there’s no need to stress. Turn to your Cat dealer for ways to keep your hydraulic system in tip-top shape. Hydraulic repair options include:

  • Cylinder light hone and reseal 

  • Dealer rebuild or exchange  

  • Cat Reman 

  • Cat New  

 

DRIVETRAIN OPTIONS 

A worn drivetrain system can lead to accelerated wear and lower productivity. It’s best to stay on top of maintenance because repair after failure can cost, on average, 2.5 times higher than repair before failure. 

Cat gears, bearings, friction material and seals are designed for your machine and built for maximum performance. Drivetrain repair options include: 

  • Rebearing/reseal

  • Rebearing/reseal plus 

  • Component rebuild/exchange 

  • Cat Reman 

  • Cat New Rebuild

 

ENGINE OPTIONS  

Did you know that contaminated fuel causes you to burn more fuel? The life of an engine can be measured by fuel burn — so saving fuel means a longer engine life.

And planned maintenance such as fluid testing puts you in control instead of waiting for an issue to occur. Engine repair options include:

  • Rebearing/reseal 

  • Rebearing/reseal plus

  • Dealer rebuild/exchange 

  • Cat Reman

  • Cat New Rebuild 

 

UPGRADES AND ENHANCEMENTS 

If you’re already getting your machine repaired, it might be a good time to set up other proactive repairs. You could even knock out some upgrades. 

Here are just a few of those upgrade options:

  • Seat belt reminder 

  • White noise backup alarms

  • Work area vision system 

  • Fuel consumption monitoring

  • Asset IQTM


Whatever you decide to have done, your Cat dealer can work with you to tailor your repairs to your specific needs. Talk with your dealer today to find the best options for your mine site.
