Find an Assortment of Cat Certified Used Machines
As a Cat equipment dealer, Thompson Tractor can offer Cat Certified Used machines that ensure the highest quality and longevity. You'll get a hard-working backhoe loader, bulldozer, excavator, or other product that meets the extraordinarily high Caterpillar standards — each piece of equipment undergoes a comprehensive multi-point inspection process to ensure it's in peak condition. They're also serviced with genuine Cat parts, components, and fluids. What's more, you'll get the benefit of 12 month/1,000 hour EPTW + HYD warranty coverage for your protection and peace of mind.
In addition, to provide you with a lower-cost alternative, we offer a selection of Thompson Certified Used models that have also undergone a rigorous inspection and comply with many of the same Caterpillar standards. These units come with six months of warranty protection.
What Are the Benefits of Purchasing Certified vs. Non-Certified Used Equipment?
Although it's true that Cat Certified Used machines may cost a bit more than non-certified equipment, they often provide a better long-term return on your investment. You'll get the benefit of the legendary Caterpillar longevity, which increases the timespan between machine replacements. Cat products are also known for their lower maintenance and repair requirements, which will reduce your long-term ownership costs.
When you think about how vital your machines are to the success of your projects, it makes sense to purchase the most reliable used heavy equipment you can find — a broken-down compactor, dozer, or wheel loader could put you behind schedule. The combination of the Caterpillar brand, 140-point inspection process, warranty coverage, and the support from our experienced service team ensures that your certified used machine will meet your performance expectations — and you won't have to bear the expense of a brand new product.
