Cat® Self-Service Options for Repairs and Maintenance
Even though the H.O. Penn service team is always available to perform your repairs, doing the job yourself sometimes makes more sense. Cat Self-Service Options allow experienced do-it-yourselfers to handle simple repairs without setting up a service visit. With these kits, you can save time and give your equipment the attention it needs right away.
Caterpillar has already developed SSOs for over 300 equipment models and continues to roll out additional options. You can purchase an SSO for specific equipment components and systems like batteries, cooling systems, engines, hydraulics, undercarriages and more.
When you order an SSO kit, some of the components you’ll receive include:
- Genuine Cat parts: Your package will contain the new or remanufactured Cat parts you need to complete the repair, all backed by the standard warranty from Caterpillar.
- Instructions: We’ll include detailed instructions on how to complete your repair or maintenance procedure, including safety guidelines, contamination control practices and cleanup suggestions.
- Tool recommendations: The instructions outline the best tools to complete each job. If you don’t have the right tools, you can order them from us for speedy delivery.
- Technical support: Our team can provide the advice you need for completing your repair, whether you have a simple question or run into a problem during the procedure.
