Whether you’re dealing with a planned overhaul or an unplanned failure, one thing’s for sure: Replacing your truck engine requires an outlay of both time and money. That’s the bad news. The good news? You have options—and choosing the right one for your situation can help keep expense and downtime to a minimum.
Choosing a Cat Reman engine may be your best bet when it comes to saving both time and money, especially for unplanned failures. Cat Reman engines are available off the shelf to get you back on the road fast. You also get same-as-new quality and a same-as-new warranty at 20-35% off the cost of new. Another benefit: You can match the emissions level of your reman engine to the one you’re taking out of your truck.
That said, if you’re running an older truck, it may not be in your financial best interests to invest in a complete reman engine. Rebuilding may be a smarter option.
If buying a new or same-as-new engine isn’t in your budget, consider Foley RIG360 Truck Center’s engine rebuild program. Foley RIG360 is Cat certified. We’ll rebuild your engine using genuine Cat diesel engine parts and Cat Reman components when available to keep costs down.
Foley RIG360 also tests your Cat rebuilt engine using the same standards applied to new models and back the entire rebuild—not just new parts—with a warranty.
There’s isn’t a single “right” answer. But if you weigh all the factors—downtime, cost, availability, emissions requirements, age of your truck, personal rebuild capabilities—one of these options is sure to rise to the top. We highly recommend you contact a Foley RIG360 Truck Center Technician to help guide your through the selection to discover the best solution for your unique needs.
