CNH Industrial Reman offers competitive engines for mini excavators
By Larry StewartFebruary 01, 2023
CNH Industrial Reman offers remanufactured engines for Case and New Holland mini excavators to put machines back to work a fast. CNH, parent company of Case Construction Equipment and New Holland Construction, has been investing in its Reman division to bring lower-cost, fast solutions to equipment downtime.
CNH Reman claims its remanufactured engines account for 40% to 60% less downtime when compared to repairing the engine.
“When an engine fails on a mini excavator, you have several options – buy new, buy reman or repair the failures,” said Kent Whitaker, product manager for CNH Industrial Reman. He suggested that the cost of parts to repair a badly damaged engine like this approaches the value of the value of the engine itself.
Whitaker said CNH Reman’s mini excavator engines are a like-new product.
- Engines are completely disassembled and each component thoroughly cleaned
- Components brought back to the latest OEM specification or replaced with new
- Replacement engines dyno tested for proper oil pressure, exhaust temperature, horsepower, water and oil circulation, and overall functionality.
The finished remanufactured part is reassembled and then tested one final time to ensure OEM performance and failed parts are replaced. The team goes through OEM engine training and original OEM designs are used to remanufacture engines, increasing the overall quality of the remanufactured product. Every CNH Reman engine is tested for quality and backed by a 24-month warranty.
Whitaker says the decision to launch reman mini excavator engines in 2018 was based on a feasibility study. The study identified a gap in the reman market, especially in the landscaping and construction industries, which CNH Reman sought to fill with their remanufactured engines.
As industry demand shifted from traditional equipment to new mini excavators, it created a lot of competition in the marketplace. Availability of reman engines added value to Case and New Holland’s machines in this competitive environment.
