cable generators and marine gears. Service under these plans will be available at Caterpillar authorized facilities in the U.S. and Canada.

Both plans cover defects in workmanship or material not only in major engine, generator, and marine gear components, but in all nonconsumable parts such as supply and return lines, bolts, spacers, and gaskets.

The coverage, which the manufacturer says costs only pennies per operating hour, can be obtained for 36- or 60-month periods and for specific service hour lengths ranging from 2,000 hours for some engines up to 21,000 hours for others. It is available exclusively to the first user of the covered Cat Engine and may be bought any time before the standard warranty period expires. The extended service coverage period begins when the standard warranty period ends.

To meet coverage provisions, owners must follow Caterpillar's standard Operation & Maintenance Management Guides for their engine and related attachments.
