Large Colorado Farm’s Caterpillar Gets Repairs And Annual Check Up

4.jpegOur guys spent the morning working on a farm in Northern Colorado. No, they weren’t plowing the field or gathering eggs, but they were there to perform annual service and some minor repairs on the large farm’s Caterpillar generator.
“We are here to work on this Cat as the client reported some issues and of course while we are here, we will perform an annual service checkup,” said service tech Brandon. “Our goal is to get this unit running correctly so that the farm can continue to run smoothly.”     
Generator Source works hard to ensure quality standards are being met and our efforts are rewarded each day with our customers satisfaction and assurance that their generator will operate when and as it should. We take great pride in knowing that our equipment will work on time, every time. Part of the service includes our 31-point annual inspection. That process entails:
