Caterpillar Generator Repair FAQs
All of Weld Power’s technicians are certified by the Electrical Generating Systems Association. This certifies that they are proficient in the installation, maintenance, and repair of On-Site Power Generation Systems.
All of our technicians carry a wide range of repair parts in their van in order to make minor repairs while onsite in an emergency in order to keep a generator online. At the very least we should be able to make an emergency repair to keep the unit online until a more permanent repair can be performed.
Unlike our competitors, we do not specialize in just a single brand/ manufacture. We have the ability to work on & repair any make or model generator regardless of the manufacture or age.
The manufacture recommends changing the oil & filters every 250 hours or at the one year mark.
The cost of repair varies depending on the nature of what needs to be performed. Weld Power supplies a formal typed estimate of what we believe to be the best course of action to repair your generator back to proper operating conditions.
Weld Power tests the engine coolant for proper PH levels and freezes points at each visit however it is recommended that coolant be changed out at least every two years.
The typical lifespan of a generator is 25-30 years. At around the 15-20 year mark, it is recommended that a full in-frame overhaul of the engine be performed. This is the timeframe where a majority of failures with the engine occur resulting in costly repairs. By performing an overhaul of the engine and with the proper maintenance program tailored by Weld Power, it is not uncommon to see a generator last upwards of 40+ years.
Certain instances/customers require an emergency generator to always be online, even during the repair. In a case such as this, we would offer to install a Towable Rental generator in place in order to provide emergency power to a facility while repairs to the existing generator are being made. We offer discounted day rates for occasions such as this.
