A national directory for Caterpillar machine salvage parts that are available for sale can be found at the Rock and Dirt equipment marketplace website. More than 400 Caterpillar machine models are listed. Site visitors can select the machines they are interested in, and then click the "View Selected" button to see the names, locations and contact information for the various sellers.
To get to the Caterpillar salvage parts listings, visitors to the Rock and Dirt website need to click on the "Dismantled" link on the navigation bar. This will open a page of more than 200 machine manufacturers. Clicking on "CATERPILLAR" in the far left-hand column will open the page containing the various Caterpillar models.
The Rock and Dirt website's home page also offers a requester-style advanced search feature that visitors can use to find parts sellers by entering the travel distance from their zip code. As of early March 2015, the website contained more than 1,400 listings for Caterpillar machine salvage parts.
