American Independent is a non-OEM rebuild facility specializing in powertrain components for heavy equipment Caterpillar® tractors. In 2018, H&R Construction Equipment Parts purchased American Independent and made it a division of the company. Since opening their doors in 1988, American Independent has rebuilt over ten thousand components for scrapers, dozers, loaders, compactors, haul trucks, and more. With a specific focus on the powertrain, and an incentive to save customer’s money without sacrificing quality, they have developed and refined intricate systems to rebuild components that not only match the quality you’d expect from that of a dealer but often times surpass it.
