mainly your 31 cat, will have iddy biddy engines, where 24volt crank /charge is not offered
BUT 24 volt beats 12 hands down, except there are no 24 vdc electronics , eg radio, pilot, you name it so you have then to have to settle for transformers,blocking diodes, tapped batt banks etc,
so nope , short answer, stay with 12 vdc
