What CVA options are available for mining equipment?

  • Maintenance for Mining CVA: Choose from scalable options such as planned maintenance (PM) kits for do-it-yourself service or dealer labor and component assurance programs.  

  • Hydraulic Hose & Coupling CVA: Customize this CVA to include delivered replacement kits or even a dealer-managed, on-site hose assembly shop; and consider use-based payment.

  • Undercarriage CVA: Your undercarriage is a big investment. This CVA provides component assurance, machine alerts and the right parts at the right time, all with a flexible, cost-per-hour payment structure.  

  • Powertrain CVA: Protect your machines’ most critical components and control costs with tailored protection and assurance after the standard warranty expires.

  • Ground Engaging Tools (GET) & Bucket CVA: Manage bucket and GET supplies as well as rebuilds and replacements by always having the right components on hand. Customize options like cost-per-ton guarantees, inventory management, training and technical support, optimized bucket configurations and more. 

How can I customize a CVA for my fleet?

Start by familiarizing yourself with the different types of CVAs available for your Cat® equipment (see chart below). Maybe you want basic do-it-yourself parts and inventory management. Or full-service, dealer-supplied management and labor. Contact your Cat dealer to select from multiple levels of service and see what makes the most sense for your operation and budget.
