How Equipment Becomes Cat Certified Used

Cat Certified Used equipment is Caterpillar brand machinery that has passed a rigorous inspection program. The 140-point inspection makes sure that your equipment has no quality or reliability issues.

Equipment must be a low-hour machine from a pre-owned fleet. Then, the equipment goes through the inspection process. Standards for Cat equipment becoming certified include:

  • A clean cab with functional panel control gauges and switches.
  • No leaks, scratches, scoring or pitting on the cylinders.
  • Functional and crack-free lights and signal lights.
  • Cat parts for the buckets, undercarriage and batteries.

Benefits of Buying Cat Certified Used Machines

The advantages of buying Cat Certified Used equipment include the following:

  • Save money: Spend less on Cat Certified Used machines due to the lower upfront cost.
  • Ready-to-use machinery: The detailed inspection process confirms that the equipment will have no issues when you purchase it, so it’s ready to work at the job site.
  • Full service and maintenance: The inspection process includes service and maintenance of the equipment, so you won’t need an oil change until the next cycle.
  • Service history: You can see the full history of your machine, so you’ll know where it was used, what it was used for and how it was maintained.
  • Genuine Cat parts for repairs: Cat Certified Used equipment has genuine Cat parts, so you can count on your machine to be reliable.
  • Low hours: A machine must have low hours to be eligible for Certified Used status. Having low hours means the equipment may operate better for longer.
  • Ideal features: Each equipment generation has new features. Cat Certified Used machines are late models, so you’ll get new technology and features in your equipment.

Equipment Protection Plan

Your investment is protected with an Equipment Protection Plan (EPP), which comes with all Cat Certified Used machines. This plan helps you manage major repair costs if your equipment has a mechanical breakdown. Workmanship or material defects will be covered, so you can buy and operate used machinery with confidence.

Customer Value Agreement

You can also buy a Customer Value Agreement (CVA). This agreement helps you get parts and services for less, from a basic preventive maintenance kit to complete maintenance and repair. Your CVA is tailored to your specific equipment.
