Caterpillar has introduced a mobile diesel generator set to its line of towable compact products. Rated at 175 kW, the new XQ175, with a fuel-efficient Cat® C6.6 engine, offers ease of use and improved monitoring. The control panel is collocated with the distribution panel. Analog gauges are easily readable for oil pressure, engine temperature, voltage, amperage, frequency, fuel level and battery voltage. Indicators alert operators to low coolant level, low fuel level or fuel leak, low oil pressure, overspeed and emergency shutdown. According to the manufacturer, the unit’s ability to switch between 480/277 V or 208/120 V 3-phase operation via a voltage changeover board, instead of a voltage selector switch, reduces components and costs, which means less ‘wear and tear’ or opportunity for downtime. The new XQ175 is available exclusively through Cat dealers and The Cat Rental StoreTM locations.
