Serving the Heavy Equipment Industry since 1988!

Why American Independent?

American Independent is an independent repair shop specializing in powertrain components for heavy equipment Caterpillar® tractors. Since opening our doors in 1988, we’ve rebuilt several thousands of components for scrapers, dozers, loaders, compactors, haul trucks, and more. With a specific focus on the powertrain, and an incentive to save customer’s money without sacrificing quality, we’ve developed and refined intricate systems to rebuild components that not only match the quality you’d expect from that of a dealer, but often times surpass it.

Huge Online Inventory!

If you are looking to purchase, rebuild, or sell power train cores for your Caterpillar® heavy equipment, please contact us. We have a huge inventory of Cat® power train components, offer fair market value for cores, and have been specializing in the rebuilding process of these components for over 20 years. We are also always glad to trade for services.

If we don’t currently stock what you’re looking for, odds are we can help get you what you need. We are part of a vast dealer network giving us access to millions of parts with the click of a button!

Unparalleled Support!

The lasting relationships we build with our customers is our most important asset.

  Thank you and your staff for doing such a fine job repairing the components we have sent to you over the years. There have been times when you have gone beyond what could be expected of a vendor to help us find and repair the cause of component failures even if your company did not do the repairs; and that more than I can say helped out greatly.
