Frequently Asked Questions

What is Yellowmark™?

Yellowmark™, A Caterpillar Brand, is a new line of repair and replacement parts. Developed by Caterpillar and conveniently available from your local Cat® dealer, Yellowmark parts offer a reliable, lower cost alternative for your small and medium-sized construction equipment.

Why is Caterpillar introducing a new line of parts?

Many of you have told us that it can be challenging to find the right balance of reliability, affordability and convenience when you’re buying repair and replacement parts. We listened and developed Yellowmark to provide you with an alternative that strikes that balance. Yellowmark parts offer the right fit for your equipment and your budget.

How are Yellowmark parts different from Genuine Cat® Parts or Cat Reman Parts?

Yellowmark parts are ideal for operations that want a brand they can trust at a lower price that is readily available through their local Cat dealer. Our Genuine Cat Parts and Cat Reman Parts lines offer additional durability, the lowest cost-per-hour, premium performance and maximum return on investment.

How are Yellowmark parts different from other aftermarket parts?

Aftermarket will-fit parts may provide a low-cost option, but they don’t offer the reliable performance and convenient availability you can expect from a Caterpillar brand. Because they’re developed by Caterpillar and offered through your Cat dealer, Yellowmark construction equipment parts strike the right balance of reliability, affordability and convenience.

Are Cat Classic Parts going away? Is Yellowmark just a new name for Cat Classic Parts?

Yellowmark parts will encompass and expand the Cat Classic Parts line. Current Cat Classic Parts will be branded as Yellowmark, and we plan to add new aftermarket parts to support our entire small and medium-sized construction equipment line.

Will Yellowmark parts only be available for Cat products?

For now, yes. Our initial focus is on supporting Cat small and medium-sized construction machines with repair and replacement parts. 

What Yellowmark parts will be available—and when?

Yellowmark will support the entire Cat small and medium-sized construction equipment line. Parts will be introduced throughout 2018, with more to come—likely including maintenance and wear products—in the next two years.

Where can I buy Yellowmark parts?

Beginning in 2018, Yellowmark parts will be sold exclusively through Cat dealers. More purchase options may be available in the future.

Where can I learn more about Yellowmark parts?

Your local Cat dealer can provide more details and answer any questions you may have. We’ll also be adding more content to this site in the coming months, so check back often.
