4 Easy Steps to Protect Your Prime Generator Set

Your operation depends on reliable power. That’s why you trust Cat® generator sets. With Extended Service Coverage (ESC), you get additional coverage that’s just as durable and long-lasting. ESC for newused and overhauled prime and rental generator sets protects your investment and your peace of mind. Choosing coverage is as easy as following these four steps.

1. Choose From a Variety of Coverage Options

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

NEW E.S.C. Coverage for electric power prime and rental generator sets is available in 24- to 60- month terms, in 12-month increments, if purchased before the end of your original factory warranty.
ADVANTAGE E.S.C. Your engine or genset is eligible if it meets all of the following criteria:

  • Within defined age and usage hour limitations
  • Not previously overhauled
  • Passes Advantage inspection requirements administered by a Cat authorized dealer (if applicable by program).
OVERHAUL E.S.C. Coverage is available in 12- to 60- month terms, in 12-month increments. Your prime or rental generator set is eligible once a qualifying overhaul has been completed by an authorized Cat dealer in accordance with the Overhaul ESC Checklist.


2. Identify Your Coverage Needs

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

3. Select Your Coverage Level

Then, choose from our Silver, Gold, Platinum or Platinum Plus coverage levels (New and Advantage ESC only) to get the exact amount of protection you need based on the Coverage Matrix1 and Additional Allowances. Overhaul ESC options are also available. Contact your local Cat dealer for details.

Platinum Plus goes beyond Platinum coverage to include Cat components installed by an authorized dealer. Such components must be approved. See your Cat dealer for details.


4 Purchase and Register Your ESC

Finally, work with your local Cat dealer to complete the process—and get the protection and peace of mind you deserve.
