The heavy equipment industry can be hard and fast-paced. Rugged worksites take their toll on components and new technology can make older machines obsolete. We offer multiple rebuild options to maintain uptime while reducing the cost of ownership and production.
With a Cat Certified Rebuild, your machine gets a second life at a fraction of the cost of buying new. During the rebuild process, over 350 tests are administered on a machine, critical engineering updates are implemented, and approximately 7,000 parts are automatically replaced. At the end of the rebuild, you get a like-new machine with a warranty.
The Cat Certified Rebuild process includes:
Recover all the performance and productivity of your original machine—and capture the benefits of the latest engineering updates, too.
Power Train Rebuild
A rebuilt powertrain can restore performance, increase machine availability and greatly improve its productive service life.
When the rest of your machine is running strong, restore like-new performance to your hydraulic systems.
When you invest in Cat, you’re investing in durability and performance. Rebuild your engine to maximize that investment.
Machine Component Rebuild
Restore your engine, transmission, torque converter, axle assemblies or final drives to like-new performance
Peterson offers extensive 24hr on call field service to all of its customers. An entire fleet of heavy duty service trucks and lube trucks are waiting to respond to your every service need. Whether there is a minor malfunction that needs a quick fix or an inexplicable system shutdown our service technicians are up to the job. Some of our field service capabilities include:
A Customer Support Agreement (CSA) is a tailored contract that helps you lower your cost per unit of production. Agreements are customized to fit your business needs and can range from simple Preventive Maintenance Kits to sophisticated Total Cost Performance Guarantees. No matter which option you choose, you can be assured that Peterson will provide you with careful planning and ongoing attention that will help you succeed.
When you have a CSA with Peterson, you have more time to do what you do best – run your business. Highly trained technicians assist you by maintaining your equipment and driving down operating costs. In the end, everyone's goal is the same: helping you gets more work done at a lower cost.
Perhaps the most important feature of any CSA is flexibility. There are no pre-set requirements or specific products and services that you must agree to buy. In every case and with every piece of equipment, a CSA is an individualized plan. Depending on your needs, your costs can be a flat rate, monthly fee or some other arrangement based on actual production hours. Your agreement may include as few or as many pieces of equipment as you wish. You can cover individual systems, single pieces of equipment, or entire fleets. We will work with you to determine the best strategies to maximize productivity and minimize costs for both your CAT and non-CAT equipment.
Customer Support Agreements are not just for large pieces of equipment, and they are not just for new equipment either. The need to get more work done at a lower cost is the same, regardless of age or application.
Peterson’s Fluid Analysis Lab in Eugene, Oregon specializes in analyzing fluids from your equipment fleet and examining those fluids for common signs of component failure. For example, the occurrence of fine metal particles in hydraulic oil often indicates the breakdown of a hydraulic pump or another major component. If these particles are detected early enough, service technicians can replace the pump and oil and prevent further damage to the entire hydraulic system.
Fluid Analysis does far more than discover component failures, though. It’s also the best way to gauge when to replace the fluids in your machine. Broken down oil, or oil containing contaminants such as water, could lead to overheating and excessive wear of important machine components, damage that can be prevented by keeping tabs on the condition of your fluids through our analysis.
Peterson is committed to your machine’s long-term reliability, and fluid analysis is just one of the ways our highly trained staff uses technology to deliver you a quality service experience.
Our welding and machine shops combine the art of repair and fabrication to deliver customized solutions for your most demanding projects. Countless prototype models have emerged from our shop over the years: some at the request of customers, others through a combined effort between Peterson and Caterpillar. Many have been patented and have found their way into the Caterpillar product line itself.
Our in-house engineering staff, using AutoCAD's sophisticated computer graphics, can design, simulate and test potential ideas even before a single pattern is laid out to cut. From there, special tooling like the giant Giddings & Lewis boring mill, the 500-ton Pacific Brake Press, the automatic-tracing burning machine, dual ram press, tungsten application machine, and automatic wire welders, are used by a crew long-experienced in customer fabrication.
Combined, these tools and teamwork turn customers' equipment problems into finished products quickly and efficiently with the quality people have come to expect from Peterson.

Peterson's Fab Shop teamed up with Peterson's Power Systems to design and build a custom undercarriage for repowering Morningstar Farm's Tomato Harvester. The machine is a unique two-row harvester that was requiring constant and costly repairs on the poorly-sized undercarriage. Using a hybrid mix of CAT undercarriage components, we came up with a design that met the functional requirements of an 8-to-9 mph hwy travel speed, 70,000 lb load capacity and a short deadline.
Peterson's Fab Shop built a conveyor system for customer Shank/Torno for their water tunnel contract in San Francisco. The system consisted of over 100 feet of conveyors, laid out and built in Peterson's San Leandro shop. The project required 2 seven-ft erector arms and a giant nine-ton backhoe arm to assist in the tunnel excavation ... all built at Peterson.
Peterson’s “clinch” load-sensing tool control system for hydraulic-excavators has been another winning idea. “We made many, many of these over a five-year span,” states Peterson engineer Bud Collins, whose idea it was to add multi-functionality while still maintaining factory cycle times. "Caterpillar has since incorporated the function into their excavators at the factory. It’s a different system than we used but it does exactly the same thing.” Peterson sold 400 of these units until Caterpillar came out with their upgraded C models.
We service all makes of gear vane, piston, geroter and disc valve pumps and motors. From rebuilding, to exchange, to new sales, we provide a single source for all makes and brands.
