Diesel Generators - Prime, Continuous or Standby Power

For prime, continuous or standby power service, Cat diesel generator sets deliver reliable, clean, economical power – even in the most demanding conditions. Each Cat diesel generator set is designed, engineered and manufactured for optimal performance. All major components are tested individually; and once the generator set is assembled, the complete unit is tested at and above 100% of rated load for operation and safety.

A Cat brand generator set offers a huge advantage over all other brands: They all come with the expert service and comprehensive support of your nearby Cat® dealer. It begins with prompt delivery and continues through the life of the diesel genset.
