Caterpillar is expanding into the home and outdoor power category with the introduction of the Cat RP Series of portable generators.
The North American product launch includes four standard models, ranging from 3.6 to 7.5 kW, as well as California-specific variations. Everything needed to operate the generator is accessible in one convenient, lighted control panel, Cat says. A multifunction display enables users to toggle between lifetime running hours, session running hours, power output, and run time to monitor generator performance and to determine when it’s time to re-fuel or service the unit. To power multiple devices, the RP5500, RP6500 E and RP7500 E have multiple outlets, both 120V and 240V. Availability in the US and Canada is through a select number of regional and local retailers and traditional Cat dealers.
