Caterpillar has taken every possible step to effectively manage service and maintenance issues and minimize the impact of those activities on operating costs.
Eliminated 500-hour initial valve lash service requirement.
Basic oil and filter change intervals have not changed.
Engines are required for use with Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel and also accommodate B2O biodiesel when blended with ULSD.
New emissions standards drive new service intervals and maintenance activity:
5,000 hours (C7.1 ACERT - C18 ACERT) for DPF ash removal. Removal options:
- Mobile ash-removal tool
- Stationary ash-removal tool
- Cat Reman exchange
2,000 hours for Open Crankcase Ventilation filter
CEM aftertreatment is designed with a removable center section to allow easy access to the DPF for ash service.
Cat Dealers also offer Customer Support Agreements and fleet and business management expertise that can help you reduce overall costs and manage your businesseven more effectively...which may take your success to a whole new level.
WORLD CLASS SERVICE AND SUPPORT
The worldwide Cat Dealer network supports your engines and your operations anywhere in the world. And field technicians worldwide have been expertly trained to support the technologies of Tier 4 Interim/Stage IIIB engines.
The parts commonality built into the Tier 4 Interim/Stage IIIB line of engines enables common service tooling and parts stock coverage, further enhancing the value that product support can deliver. With industry-leading parts availability, cost-saving Reman options and Cat Certified Rebuild programs, you can keep your engine performance high and your operating costs lower.
Tier 4 Interim/Stage IIIB engineering minimizes additional maintenance and maximizes efficiency to stabilize operating costs. Testing and analysis results suggest that total owning and operating costs will remain fairly stable, because improvements in fuel efficiency are expected to offset costs associated with aftertreatment maintenance.
