News: Caterpillar broaden remanufactured machinery range
Caterpillar has responded to environmental pressures to expand its range of remanufactured machinery to incorporate smaller engines.
Monday, 16th February 2009
The company previously offered remanufactured engines for larger machines but has broadened this service to cover engines of between 20hp to 180hp, including the Caterpillar 3003 engine through to the 3056. A Caterpillar spokeswoman told Construction News the company has increased its range to meet European regulations on emissions. She said: "As we stopped production of the Tier 1 and 2 engines, so there was demand from our customers for Tier 3." Under the scheme, end of life products can be exchanged for remanufactured replacements. The company has increased its range to include engines for wheeled excavators, small and compact wheel loaders, small and medium hydraulic excavators, skid steer loaders, multi terrain loaders and small track-type tractors and loaders.
