Cat® Certified Used

Cat® Certified Used

There’s used equipment, and then there’s Cat Certified Used. We take low-hour, well-maintained machines and inspect them inside and out. Once a machine meets our tough standards, we use only genuine Cat parts for service, complete all the required maintenance, back it with a Caterpillar warranty and turn on the connectivity (if equipped).

The result? A used machine you can trust to deliver good-as-new performance and peace of mind.

Good As New, Inside and Out

For a used machine to earn the Cat Certified Used brand, all systems and components must be rated “Good” on a Caterpillar standard used inspection form by a trained inspector — no leaks, no visual damage, no mechanical or system problems, no excessive wear and no safety issues.

Selected, Inspected & Serviced To A Higher Standard

Up to 140 Point Inspected

Every machine must pass a comprehensive 140-point inspection. If that reveals any issues, highly-trained technicians service it using only genuine Cat parts. They also complete all the most recent maintenance, so you don’t need to worry about changing oil or filters until the next interval.

Up To 5 Years Old

Late-model machines deliver like-new quality and reliability, plus 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.

Service History

Many machines come right from our rental fleets, so you’ll know exactly how your machine was maintained. And a documented service history is available, so you can make an informed decision before you buy. Having the complete service record in hand can help you obtain a higher resale value when you’re ready to sell, too.

More Than 70 Components Protected

A Caterpillar Equipment Protection Plan (EPP) that covers more than 70 powertrain and hydraulics components comes standard – extending your protection beyond the original factory warranty and helping you limit unexpected repair bills.
