The rebuilt major unit warranty only applies to the manufacturer and supplier of the rebuilt engine, transmission and final drive unit. Any major unit failure resulting from workmanship supplied by the Company will be investigated in cooperation with the operator, and remanufacturer/supplier. The manufacturer’s warranty will apply.
Repairs and servicing
This warranty applies to repairs, maintenance and servicing work carried out by the Company.
