Take Control of Your Operating Costs

Replace your worn or timed out components with Finning remanufactured units and realize savings of up to 50% compared to new component pricing. When you purchase a component from Finning Exchange, you will receive a credit for returning your old, worn-out core. This amount will offset the purchase price of the new exchange component, leading to reduced owning and operating costs. Finning then takes that core and remanufactures it, bringing it back to “like new” condition.
