Selwood commits to Caterpillar engines

5 Jul Selwood has chosen Caterpillar as its preferred supplier of industrial diesel engines.

Selwood has entered into a preferred supplier partnership with Caterpillar dealer Finning for engines across its pump range.

Pumps manufactured at Selwood headquarters in Chandlers Ford, Hampshire, for international sale and use across its UK-wide rental fleet, will now be fitted with Cat engines, including its C1.7 and C2.2 models in Selwood鈥檚 4-inch and 6-inch pumps.

The engines come with Caterpillar鈥檚 VisionLink Telematics as standard, which provides insights into operating run times, fuel levels and equipment health.

Selwood production and engineering director Dan Whitehouse said: 鈥淎s part of an ongoing product development and manufacturing improvement programme, we wanted to simplify our manufacturing process and make it easier and more cost-effective for our customers to own and maintain our pumps.

鈥淔or every engine supplier there is a different control system, spares, servicing regimes, monitoring system and diagnostic tools. Our customers often manage several pumps with different engines. Having Caterpillar as our preferred supplier means this ongoing servicing regime will be simplified across our customer鈥檚 fleet of Selwood pumps.鈥

He added: 鈥Caterpillar鈥檚 global presence, its engines鈥 lower lifecycle costs and complete product range from 18kW are just some of the reasons why we chose them as our preferred partner. Its engines are also well recognised for their tough construction applications and use in rugged environments, which is essential for our pumps.

鈥淎诲诲颈迟颈辞苍补濒濒测, Caterpillar鈥檚 long-term vision to make its products more sustainable aligns with our own commitment to reducing the impact of our operations on the environment.鈥
