Extended Service Coverage

Extended Service Coverage (ESC) for Caterpillar Engines

Your operation depends on reliable power. That’s why you specify Caterpillar. With Caterpillar Extended Service Coverage (ESC), you get additional protection that’s just as durable and long-lasting—so you can spend less time managing your engines and more time running your business. ESC is available for new, used and overhauled engines, standby and prime generator sets, as well as switchgear, automatic transfer switches (ATS), uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and engine paralleling and integration controls (EPIC).  ESC is built to protect your investment and your peace of mind.

What Can You Expect?

You need real-world information to make real-world decisions. We’ve put together ESC agreements on three popular models. Each includes a real-world coverage matrix, additional allowances and overview.
