Cat Classic Parts

Classic Cat® Parts

Do you own a "vintage" Cat® machine that has given you many years of dependable service? You’re not alone. Caterpillar is known for producing the world’s best heavy equipment that provides long-term reliability. And there’s no better way to keep your older machine on the jobsite even longer than by choosing Cat Classic parts when it’s time for a replacement.

These Cat parts are specifically designed and built to be an affordable alternative for older Cat machines and to complement original, used, and remanufactured Cat parts. Patten is proud to be your source for Classic Cat parts in Chicago.

Classic Cat parts from Patten save you time. Instead of spending hours searching for that hard-to-find part, we offer everything you need in one convenient location. You won’t waste valuable time "experimenting" with numerous parts in an effort to find the ideal match for your machine.

Purchasing classic parts also saves you money. They typically are much less expensive than similar parts for newer equipment, making them an affordable repair alternative throughout the entire lifecycle of your machine.

Don't Sacrifice Quality. Use Classic Cat Parts.

Classic Cat parts aren’t cheap imitations. They’re genuine OEM parts that you can count on to deliver the quality you would expect from anything that wears the Caterpillar name. All parts are built by Caterpillar-approved suppliers and must meet the company’s lofty engineering standards.

The same stringent quality assurance processes that apply to parts manufactured for newer machines also apply to classic parts. You can be sure the part you receive will fit properly and fulfill all functional requirements.

No matter which type of older Cat equipment you own, you’ll find that Classic Cat parts are readily available. Patten can supply parts for backhoes, excavators, motor graders, wheel loaders and more. You’ll also find a wide selection of complete engines as well as critical engine components. In all, Caterpillar manufactures more than 2,700 parts for more than 150 different types of machines and engines. You also get the benefit of the same Caterpillar warranty that is available with parts for newer machines.
