Product Focus -- Electrical power generation

Cat 12 kW generator

Portable generator
The Cat RP12000 E portable generator fills out the top end of the Cat RP line, delivering 12kW of running power. Its larger frame houses its 670cc V-Twin engine that has a fully pressurized oil system. The unit delivers up to 15kW of surge power, making it suitable for powering more equipment and heavy loads. The all-copper generator delivers clean power with less than 5 percent total harmonic distortion. A low-idle mode option optimizes fuel consumption and reduces noise levels and engine wear. It has a projected run time of more than 11 hours at 50 percent load per tank of fuel. A custom muffler and the extra-large steel fuel tank that sits on top of the engine minimizes noise levels and prevents vibration damage. A lighted, single side-operator station simplifies operation. The unit has nine receptacles including a 50-amp 240-volt outlet. The removable lifting eye and handle has a balanced center of gravity. The compact, visually appealing unit is easy to store.

DeWalt power center

Cordless power station
DeWalt adds the DCB1800 Portable Power Station that produces AC power in remote locations for convenient, portable power. It provides 1800 watts of 15 amps continuous power and 3600 watts peak power. It is powered by four DeWalt 20V Max batteries. For high-power applications, four DCB200 20V Max 3.0 amp-hour DeWalt batteries or higher amp-hour cells are recommended. The unit can also be used as a multi-port parallel charger for up to four DeWalt 20V Max batteries when plugged into a wall outlet. The unit weighs just 18 pounds without batteries and is easily portable. It doesn’t produce fumes or noise, so it can be used in noise-restricted areas.

Allmand Maxi-Power generator

25 to 150 kVa mobile generators
Allmand Bros. Inc. adds Maxi-Power mobile generators from 25 to 150 kVa. They have heavy-duty, oversized alternators with separate excitation winding to easily start large motors and handle variable loads. Frequency can switch between 50 and 60 Hz.

All units are powered exclusively by Honda engines and meet all EPA evaporative emission regulations and OSHA job site standards.

Honda generator

Portable generator with longer run time
The Honda EU7000is generator delivers fuel efficiency, cleaner power output, quiet operation and longer running times in a portable package. Ideal for a host of applications, the unit features electronic fuel injection that results in greater fuel efficiency, extremely easy starting and longer operating times. It incorporates a convenient one-touch, push-button electric start. It produces 7kW of power and weighs 261 pounds. With its 5.1-gallon gas tank, it can operate for 6.5 hours per tank at rated load or 18 hours at 25 percent load. It has a noise level of approximately 60 dB at rated load. Its Honda inverter technology produces a wave form distortion factor of less than 2.5 percent.

Technogen generator

56 kW prime power generator
The TecnoGen Enermax Series FP70TSX generator from FTG Equipment Solutions uses the FPT engine coupled to an industry-standard Leroy Somer alternator to produce 56 kW of prime power. The DeepSea controller makes retrieving vital statistics like fuel levels, run time and start logs easy. Its sealed doors and 2-inch thick insulation reduces sound levels to 69 dB. Other features include standard battery charger, block heater and cam locks.
