If you’re in the machinery business, you’ve doubtless heard the term ‘reman’. Reman is short for remanufactured. We use this term to refer to the process where used parts are disassembled, examined, restored and tested to meet ‘as new’ specifications.
This makes reman parts for heavy equipment a high quality, low cost alternative to new original parts. Although less expensive that buying new, used parts are not as reliable as reman parts. So if you’re in the market for CASE backhoe used parts, you should consider choosing reman instead.
Genuine CASE remanufactured parts are completely remanufactured to their original, like-new condition. Any type of part from a forklift engine to excavator hydraulic pumps are eligible.
What is the Reman Part Process for Construction Equipment?
The standard process ensures that any remanufactured part is fully functional and tested for quality. See the steps below:
- Completely disassemble all cores
- Thoroughly clean each component and test it against the latest OEM specifications
- Replace all wear parts with new components including bearings, seals, gaskets and more
- Restore or replace all other components
- Reassemble and test the finished parts one final time to ensure OEM performance
Benefits of Using Reman Parts for Heavy Equipment:
- Reman parts are on average over 30% cheaper than the equivalent new part
- Many of of these parts come as drop-in assemblies, ready to install upon arrival which saves you time
- Parts are remanufactured to ‘as new’ specifications. They outperform used or rebuilt parts. They can turn out even better than new parts as they address any pre-existing issues
Genuine CASE remanufactured parts cost less than new parts. They come ready to install, which will cut down on installation and repair time. This is an important consideration when you want to get back to a job site quickly.
The reman process utilizes state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques. It adheres to strict performance standards and unequaled quality control. Parts are fully tested to meet or exceed the original equipment manufacturer’s specifications. This practice ensures peak performance on the job site. Whether it’s for a forklift starter, or CASE backhoe parts, the reman process is reliable.
Do Reman Parts Qualify for Warranty?
At Sonsray Machinery, we are an authorized CASE CE distributor. We offer parts and labor warranties. Our warranty options cover remanufactured parts installed by our factory-trained, Master Certified Technicians.
We also offer Purchase Protection Plans. These plans reduce the cost of potential future repairs and protect your equipment beyond the base warranty. Most reman parts are warrantied for 12 months.
However, the length of warranty is often specific to the part. For example, a skid steer engine and a case 350 dozer transmission, have double the warranty. Those items are covered for 24 months.
If you are unsure about the warranty for an item don’t hesitate to ask your local dealer.
Environmentally Friendly and Wallet Friendly
The Reman process is a result of sustainable manufacturing. Many of the original components are remanufactured to avoid introduction of new materials in the process.
Rebuilding from the large metal housing reduces greenhouse emissions. This is because there is no further need for smelting or casting. Plus, when you buy local parts instead of shipping in a new machine you reduce your carbon footprint.
If saving the planet fails to inspire you: consider your finances. Reman parts are more cost effective than purchasing new. Installing reman parts also increases the resale value of the machine. The reported value is superior to used, rebuilt or parts from a construction equipment salvage yard.
If you’re looking to save money and preserve quality, reman parts may be the answer. Waiting for new parts for heavy equipment can cause costly delays. Reman parts will help reduce machinery downtime. Consequently, reman parts can save you time and money.
Our experts at Sonsray Machinery can help you find the right parts for your machine, and answer any questions you have.
