Cat Certified Used Equipment
Selected, Inspected & Serviced at a Higher Standard
There’s used equipment, and then there’s Cat Certified Used equipment. We take low-hour, well-maintained machines and thoroughly inspect them inside and out. Once a machine meets our standards, we use only genuine Cat parts for service, perform all the necessary maintenance, back it with a dependable warranty, and turn on the connectivity. The result? A used machine you can trust to deliver good-as-new performance and give you peace of mind.
We Test It. You Can Trust It.
Every used machine must pass a comprehensive 140-point inspection. If any issues are identified, our team of highly-trained technicians will service it using only genuine Cat parts. Plus, they’ll complete the most recent maintenance, so you don’t need to worry about changing oil or filters until the next interval.
Many machines come directly from our protected rental fleets, so you’ll know exactly how your machine was maintained with a documented service history and you can make an informed decision before you buy. Having the complete service record in hand can even help you earn a higher resale value when you’re ready to sell.
Up to 5 Years Old
Late-model machines deliver high-quality and reliability with many of the same technologies and features as today’s models. Even though you’re buying used, you can still take advantage of new machine benefits like higher productivity, better fuel efficiency, and greater comfort.
Our Cat Certified Used standard includes a Caterpillar Equipment Protection Plan (EPP) that covers more than 70 powertrain and hydraulics components to extend your protection beyond the original factory warranty and help you reduce repair costs.
For a used machine to earn the Cat Certified Used brand, all systems and components must be rated “Good” by a trained inspector on a Caterpillar standard used inspection form. This means the machine has no leaks, no visual damage, no mechanical or system issues, no excessive wear, and no safety issues.
If your Cat Certified Used machine comes equipped with Product Link™, we will turn on your connectivity, so you can turn up your results. Once you’re connected, you can download the Cat App or visit My.Cat.Com for fast, easy access to equipment hours, location, and health data—anytime, anywhere. This information will help you make better decisions about your fleet to boost productivity, lower costs, simplify maintenance, and improve operator safety and security.
