As with those Arby's commercials, ConEquip Parts has the meats when it comes to final drives for the Caterpillar 311, 312, 313, and 314 excavators. Details in a moment but first, a little overview on these models.
The 311, 312, 313, and 314 series models are still running strong despite the fact they are closing in on three decades since they first started hitting job sites back in the mid90s. The problem owners run into with these models are replacing the final drives when they fail. A new final drive from CAT for most of these models has a price tag of more than $10,000. These excavator models on the used market only fetch about $20,000 so getting a new final drive or two doesn't make a ton of sense economically. Often, even if a customer is willing to bite the bullet, these drives are weeks or months out.
As a result, many of these owners chase after used final drives as an option. Although used final drives can still be tracked down, generally owners are disappointed when they discover the drives won't be saving as much money as they would like. Used final drives for these models can still cost $5,000 or more because of demand.
Then of course there is the inherent risk that comes with getting a used part such as a final drive. If it fails, you could be back to square one except now you are out a few thousand dollars.
And now the good news - ConEquip Parts has the solution to all of the above. They have dozens of high quality DYCO brand final drives in stock, ready to ship, that fit all the models mentioned above. The best part is DYCO final drives cost, in some cases, less than half of what you would pay new at the dealer. DYCO final drives are built to OEM specs, match the speed of the original drives, and come with a hassle-free one-year warranty.
ConEquip has drives located on both the west and east coast, making delivery time in most cases just a few days. So if you need a final drive for any make or model including Komatsu, Kubota, Volvo, Case and others, give ConEquip Parts a call today!
