Are you wondering how to get the most value out of your Cat equipment? While most equipment is forced to retire after time, Cat equipment can be rebuilt in a cost-effective way for owners to get the most out of their investment. Not only does this help reduce costs, but it also increases productivity and enhances efficiency. With a variety of rebuild services, Cleveland Brothers has a rebuild option for all machines that need a “second life.” 

We offer many types of rebuilds that can be matched to your specific needs. Our service teams across our 29 locations work together to get your machine running like new, with the chance of a second life. We are a total solutions provider because we rebuild the entire unit, from repairing, replacing the different components, to assembling all the components back together for the unit to be rebuilt. For example, the tracks will be sent to our welding and track shop in Blawnox, Pa., the engine to our Component Rebuild Center in Indiana, Pa. and the hydraulics to CB HYMAC, our hydraulic, machining and chroming facility in Camp Hill, Pa. After all components are reassembled and installed back together, the components are tested and inspected to ensure the equipment runs properly. Lastly, the equipment is washed and prepped for painting, and then prepared for shipping.  


Why Rebuild?

To utilize the multiple lifetimes Cat machines can withstand, a Cat Certified Rebuild should be your first choice. With a certified rebuild, you will get the most economic value out of your original investment, and you can decide which type of rebuild you need—from total machine to component specific. This ensures you get a like-new machine at a much lower cost. Another reason to rebuild your Cat machine is that you can keep your preferred equipment choice, while restoring its original performance and productivity levels. With Cat Rebuilds you get the same-as-new support and services Cleveland Brothers offers, as well as financing options through Cat Financial.  



Types of Rebuilds:

Complete Cat Certified Machine Rebuild (CMR): 

  • With a CMR, equipment owners can transfer their end-of-life machines into a like-new machine. This allows you to save money and get more out of your machine.  And because it’s rebuilt, updated, serviced and supported to the high standards required by Caterpillar, a CMR tends to capture a significantly higher resale value.  

Certified Power Train (CPT): 

  • This choice allows you to restore your power train by rebuilding your radiator, engine, transmission, torque converter, final drive and axle to like-new conditions. Next, we’ll perform rebuilds in the areas of mainframe, hydraulics, undercarriage and more within your machine.  

Certified Power Train Plus (CPT PLUS): 

  • Our CPT Plus rebuild option includes all components of our CPT option, plus rebuilds of oscillating groups, universal joints, differentials and the ability to customize your plan by including added parts, systems or components.  

Certified Machine Component Rebuild/Certified Engine Rebuild (CMCR/CER): 

  • A CMCR or CER returns your engines, transmissions, torque converters, axle assemblies, differentials or final drives to like-new condition, helping you get maximum return on your original machine investment.  

Small Engine Rebuild:  

  • Our small engine rebuilds consist of transforming 3306, 3406, 3176 and C9 engines. This is a perfect option for anyone wanting to extend the life of equipment where a Certified Rebuild is typically not an option. Our 2-year/4,000-hour installation warranty offer is an excellent choice if you are looking to extend the life of your small engine.  

Certified Hydraulic Rebuilds: 

  • If your excavator is running strong, but its hydraulics need repaired, then a Certified Hydraulic Rebuild is the choice for you. Our expert technicians will bring your pumps, motors, valves, accumulators, hoses, lines, tanks, coolers and cylinders back to like-new performance, reliability and durability.  

Dealer Rebuild: 

  • Here at Cleveland Brothers, we offer a cost-effective solution for all machine rebuilds, which ensures reliability and reduces machine down time. Our rebuilds are customized to your unique machine and user needs. In addition, rebuilds at Cleveland Brothers are performed to dealer specifications, minimizing repair cost and reducing downtime. With a Cleveland Brothers Rebuild, customers have the choice for equipment protection programs, costs that fit your financial needs and a like-new machine once completed.
