Chicago Pneumatic Power Technique has launched the CPG 625 generator that produces 500kW of power.

Built with the same characteristics of the CPG line, the fuel-efficient model is compact, lightweight and ideal for a wide range of applications. This includes construction, mining, disaster recovery, general rental and more.


Powered by a Volvo Penta 16.1-liter, 6-cylinder Tier 4 Final diesel engine, the unit operates at 724 horsepower. The reliable and durable Volvo engine features a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) exhaust aftertreatment system, simplifying the cost of ownership and maintenance. For every 500-hour service interval, less than two hours of service is necessary.

With an AREP alternator excitation system, the motor-starting capability is strong and dependable even in the most demanding job sites. This provides 300 percent overcurrent starting capabilities coupled to the engine’s capacity to stand a 100 percent load step.

Fuel Tank

Standard external fuel tank connections and dual fuel filters allows the CPG 625 to run extended periods without interruption in service. An internal 700-gallon fuel tank runs 27 hours at 75 percent load. Camlocks and a battery charger also come standard, providing best-in-class performance for any rental application.


Fabricated from powder-coated steel, this compact unit resists corrosion. A unique foam and layering system inside the doors keeps water from getting inside the machine and improves sound attenuation at 73 dB(A). It also features an environmentally friendly spillage-free frame.


The DeepSea 7310 control module comes standard on the CPG 625. It is a fully diagnostic controller with a three-inch display. The controller is intuitive and easy to operate with all functions conveniently at the operator’s fingertips. It manages the engine operating system and has several safety warnings and shutdowns on various parameters.

The Qc 4003, a new PMS parallel controller, is optional. This allows the CPG 625 to link up to 32 generators in parallel. The fully diagnostic controller offers a seven-inch touch screen display. It also manages the quantity of generators running in parallel with load demand, starting and stopping units in line with increases or decreases in load.
