Preventative Maintenance

Preventative Maintenance

Your Cat® equipment is designed for high-performance and durability. As with any machine, regular inspection, service and maintenance is necessary to keep it running at peak performance and ready to work when you need it.

It is not uncommon for equipment and machine owners to put off preventative maintenance, thinking it too costly or time-consuming. However, the cost to business operations from an equipment failure in the middle of a job is often far greater, requiring emergency repairs and, in some instances, equipment replacement. Any savings from ignoring or delaying preventative maintenance can quickly disappear in the event of a critical failure.

Equipment failures can also increase the risk of safety incidents for crews operating the equipment or on the ground. Preventive Maintenance Plans are an important element of the Warren CAT Condition Monitoring program and can help keep your machines on the job site and your workers safe.

No Such Thing as Luck in This Business

At Warren CAT, we recommend our customers follow our Cat equipment maintenance programs. Uniquely designed for each type of equipment, preventative maintenance programs cover all critical features and functions of your Cat equipment, including:

  • Oil and fluid changes: Clean fluids in the engine, hydraulic circuits, brakes and radiator circuit reduce wear and ensure systems operate at optimal temperatures, pressures and lubrication levels. Remember to change any filters when changing fluids.
  • Electrical system: Verification and service of equipment electric systems can include replacing bulbs and fuses, fixing loose or broken wires and installing a new battery. Electrical failures can be difficult to diagnose and repair in the field, so preventative maintenance can help avoid costly breakdowns.
  • Tires and tracks: Cat equipment can have varying wheels or tracks, depending on the nature and use of the equipment. Wear to tires, hubs, bearings, tracks, gears and linkages can all be detected and corrected as part of a comprehensive preventative maintenance program.
  • Safety-related items: Ensure the safety of the crews on your work sites with regular inspection and repair of all safety equipment, such as seatbelts, horns, lights and alarms.
