Machine Choices


Sometimes, brand-new equipment is exactly what you need to get the job done. The latest features and technologies deliver the highest levels of productivity, performance and efficiency. But buying or leasing new isn’t always an option, nor is it the best choice for every situation.

A new machine may not fit in your budget right now, or perhaps you’re not planning to operate it long enough to make choosing new worthwhile. Maybe you’d rather get a few more jobs or years out of your existing Cat® equipment. Good news: You’ve got plenty of other options when it comes to putting Cat products to work for your operation.

Buy or lease used equipment.
If paying less upfront is a priority, consider Cat Used equipment. You’ll find low-hour machines in great condition and all sorts of configurations — at multiple price points to fit your budget. Step up to Cat Certified Used for an even greater level of performance. Selected, inspected and serviced to a higher standard, these machines deliver good-as-new performance, guaranteed.

Rent equipment.
Rental’s a great option when you want equipment for short-term needs, have a project that requires a specialty machine or want to try out new features or technologies before you commit to buying. And when you rent from your local dealer or the Cat Rental Store, you don’t have to worry about repair, storage or disposal costs.

Rebuild equipment.
If you’re planning to keep your equipment for a while, rebuilding a machine can deliver another lifetime of performance at a fraction of the cost of buying new. We design multiple lives into every Cat product, and our Certified Rebuild Programs (for entire machines or individual components) help you get the most out of your investment.

Repair equipment.
Another way to get more life out of your existing machines is by taking advantage of the many repair options available through your local Cat dealer. From do-it-yourself kits to complete system overhauls, your dealer offers repair solutions that fit different utilization, affordability and turnaround requirements. And it’s quick and easy to access the parts you need to complete your own repairs on Parts.Cat.Com and myParts.Cat.Com.

When buying new isn’t an option, you can still get the Cat performance and reliability your work demands. Talk to your local dealer about all the choices available and which ones make the most sense for your business.
