Caterpillar 3208

Caterpillar 3208 engines are used in many work applications such as delivery trucks, dump trucks, garbage trucks, snow plows, flatbed trucks and school buses. The 3208 is also used in many agricultural and industrial applications such as lift trucks, ag sprayers, cranes, power units, generator sets, tractors, excavators, wheel loaders, compactors, articulated trucks and backhoes. Reviva can also supply a marine engine in a long block configuration.

The Reviva remanufactured diesel CAT 3208 engines are available in naturally aspirated and turbocharged configurations. This engine is utilized in stationary, agricultural, marine and over-the-road applications. These engines are available in Complete Drop-In configurations only except for the marine engine, which is available only in a long block.

All Reviva engines are assembled in the USA.
