Regular machine inspections play a vital role in our preventative maintenance approach. The more often a machine is inspected; the less likely anything will be overlooked and the sooner any potential issues can be identified and rectified. The more in-depth the inspection; the greater understanding we can gain of your equipment’s health. All inspections are carried out by our Cat® certified engineers* using the latest Cat inspection technology. As part of the inspection process, we will follow up with you to recommend any identified repairs to ensure your fleet is always Health and Safety compliant.


Machine inspections come as standard in our Advanced, Complete, Ultimate and Tailored packages and available as an additional service with our Essential package.

ET Download – Cat machines collect and store a constant stream of health and performance data. This is downloaded in the form of an Electronic Technician Report every time an engineer visits your site, providing in-depth insight into the condition of every machine in your fleet.

Video Walkaround – Video Walkaround Inspections are carried out whenever a machine is repaired at one of our FinCam enabled workshops. Available as standard with our Ultimate support package, FinCam allows you to view areas of concern and authorise work or request more information online.

Digital Walkaround – our engineer will carry out a Digital Walkaround inspection every time they visit your machine. You can also carry out your own inspections with the aid of Caterpillar’s industry-leading inspection tool, Cat Inspect. Better than a simple notepad, Cat Inspect knows everything about every machine in your fleet – every access panel, every service centre, which means vital checks can be carried out quickly and efficiently yourself, minimising downtime across your fleet.


A range of optional inspections can be added to your CVA package to provide even greater visibility of machine health.

+ Custom Track Service (CTS) – CTS provides you with a detailed report of the health of your machine’s undercarriage. This includes how worn each component is and estimated replacement dates, allowing you to accurately budget and forecast repair costs

+ Hydraulic Health Check – a machine can lose up to 20% of its hydraulic efficiency without the operator noticing. Our comprehensive Hydraulic Health Check highlights any problems that could lead to a loss of efficiency before they impact performance
