What Makes Caterpillar Diesel Engines So Popular?

The popularity of Caterpillar diesel engines has a lot to do with the fact that they can be used in such a broad range of industries. But that’s just scratching the surface. There are a number of reasons to choose a Caterpillar engine, including:

Caterpillar engines have been designed to effectively power huge pieces of equipment such as locomotives, excavators, ferries, bulldozers, etc.

Caterpillar engines have been designed to optimize fuel consumption. This is an important quality to have in equipment of this size because it leads to lower operation costs.

Caterpillar diesel engines have proven to be extremely reliable, providing many hours of productive life.

Why Choose Rebuilt Caterpillar Diesel Engines Instead of New

Caterpillar engines may be known for their strength and reliability, but even the best engines will break down over time. If your engine is no longer performing the way it should and you’re looking into replacement options, you might want to consider having your diesel engine rebuilt.

Engine rebuilding involves removing the engine from the vehicle and completely disassembling it. Once the engine has been stripped to the bare block, the components are thoroughly cleaned then inspected for flaws.

Any parts that are damaged or excessively worn are either replaced with new ones or completely refurbished. The parts that are most commonly replaced include gaskets, seals, bearings, timing belts, O rings, and oil pumps. Major components, such as camshafts and pistons, are only replaced when necessary.

Once all the parts have all been inspected and replaced, the engine is then put back together. The result is an engine that’s like new, meeting all the engine’s original specifications.

Rebuilt Caterpillar Diesel EnginesThere are many good reasons to consider having your diesel engine rebuilt. For example:

Your Engine’s Life is Extended
Your engine has served you well. So why would you want to just toss it aside when it starts to show its age? You can restore your engine and extend its life by having it rebuilt by the expert mechanics at Young & Sons.

You’re Keeping Excess Waste Out of the Scrapyard
Investing in rebuilt Caterpillar diesel engines instead of new ones is also the best choice for the environment. If you decide to chuck your old engine instead of having it rebuilt, you’re adding an awful lot of unnecessary waste to the scrapyard. Why not keep all that metal from the trash heap and put it to good use in a rebuilt engine?

You Get Better Fuel Economy
Rebuilt Caterpillar diesel engines actually have a lot better fuel economy than used engines. Think about how gummed up and inefficient your engine has become since you first bought it. When you have that engine rebuilt, all of that is cleaned up, leaving you with a more fuel-efficient engine.

Your Engine Will Be More Reliable
In addition to being more fuel-efficient, your rebuilt engine will also be more reliable. With new and refurbished parts, you’re looking at an engine that’ll need fewer repairs than the one you brought in to the shop.

You’re Saving Money
Let’s not forget that you’ll also be saving quite a bit of money when you opt for rebuilt Caterpillar diesel engines. Having your engine rebuilt is a lot less expensive than buying a new engine or investing in a completely new piece of machinery.
