Cat® Extended Warranty

Extended Service Coverage (ESC)


Your operation depends on reliable power. That’s why you specify Cat® industrial engines. With Cat Financial Insurance Services, you get additional service that’s just as durable and long-lasting. ESC for new, used and overhauled industrial engines protects your investment and your peace of mind. Choosing coverage is as easy as following these four steps.


First, extend your protection beyond the original factory warranty by choosing the coverage option that’s right for your situation.


NEW ESC Coverage for industrial engines is available in 24- to 60-month terms, in 12-month increments, if purchased before the end of your original factory warranty.
ADVANTAGE ESC Coverage is available after the end of the original factory warranty in 12- to 60-month terms, in 12-month increments, and before the first overhaul. Your industrial engine is eligible if:

It is less than four years from delivery date and accumulated less than 3,000 hours total use since new, OR

It is less than 10 years from build date AND currently enrolled in New ESC or Advantage ESC, OR

It passes a qualifying inspection performed by an authorized Cat dealer in accordance with the Advantage Certification Inspection Worksheet.

OVERHAUL PROTECTION FOR COMMERCIAL (OPC) ESC Coverage is available in 12- to 60-month terms, in 12-month increments. Your industrial engine is eligible once a qualifying overhaul has been completed by an authorized Cat dealer in accordance with the OPC Certification Worksheet.



Next, identify the age and current operating hours of your industrial engine since delivery or overhaul. Then calculate your annual hours of use to choose the best ESC coverage terms to fit your needs.


Then, choose from our Silver, Gold, Platinum or Platinum Plus coverage levels to get the exact amount of protection you need based on the Coverage Matrix1 and Additional Allowances.
