Cat® Equipment Repairs by Thompson Tractor

The in-shop service at Thompson Tractor addresses any machine repair or maintenance our customers need. Drop off your equipment to have our trained technicians perform diagnostics and use repair techniques and parts approved by Caterpillar. Our equipment repair shop offers:

  • Technicians scheduled seven days a week with staggered start times to ensure we can provide service whenever necessary.
  • Professionals with extensive training in various machines and parts.
  • A local team with extensive knowledge about your business operations and goals.
  • An extensive parts inventory to complete repairs without delay.

Our in-shop Cat equipment repairs are ideal for regular maintenance, low-priority fixes, and large-scale repairs that cannot be completed in the field.


Our technicians get the job done with speed and accuracy thanks to our comprehensive array of parts and tools from Caterpillar. Our service shop has all the equipment our team needs to work on engines, undercarriages, hydraulics, and other systems. We also have our technicians undergo continuous training so they’ll have the latest knowledge available for completing service quickly and accurately.

Technology Support

In addition to tools, our repair team takes advantage of technology to make repairs easier. VisionLink® tells us the fault codes and engine hours of machines, which helps us understand the issue and what needs to be repaired to get the equipment up and running quickly.
