Chicago Pneumatic has extended its range of CPDG mobile diesel generators up to 200 kVA. Originally including 5 models from 9 to 40 kVA, the CPDG range has been bolstered with the addition of six new models from 60 to 200 kVA. Tony Calippe, spokesperson for generator equipment at Chicago Pneumatic commented: “As a result of this expansion, we are now able to offer our customers a complete range of small to medium sized mobile generators, which all provide a combination of exceptional toughness, reliability and easy operation.” Available through Chicago Pneumatic’s global distributor network, the rugged and easy-to-move CPDG generators are designed to meet the tough demands of the construction industry. Using proven technology, which draws upon Chicago Pneumatic’s history of making generators since the mid-1930’s, CPDG generators can be relied upon by operators to provide a continuous source of electrical power. They are suitable for prime power applications in the general construction and rental industries, with all models being fully CE compliant for use in Europe. With integrated forklift slots and a lifting beam, the CPDG generators are easy-to-move and designed to be highly impact resistant.

Other standard features include easy-to-read gauges, easy-to-access maintenance points and a galvanised canopy. Chicago Pneumatic recently introduced a host of new optional features to the CPDG range. This includes a variety of tow bar and coupling combinations to fulfill the needs of different customers. Fully approved for use throughout the European Union, the new road trailer options mean the generators can be easily transported between sites without the need for major adaptations. A new optional skid has been introduced to add extra robustness to the base-frame of the generators. It is specifically designed for applications where the unit will reside on uneven surfaces, or if needs be moved across the ground over short distances. To provide operators with the option of extended run times, CPDG generators can now be equipped with higher capacity fuel tanks. This, coupled with 500 hour service intervals, means CPDG generators are especially suited for applications where a generator is required to reliably run for a high number of hours with reduced attention from the operator.
