Chicago Pneumatic expand diesel-powered generator range


Company bolsters CPDG range with the addition of six new models delivering outputs from 60 to 200kVA

CHICAGO Pneumatic have expanded their range of CPDG mobile diesel-powered generators with prime power outputs up to 200kVA. The original CPDG line-up consisted of five models (9 to 40kVA), but Chicago Pneumatic have now strengthened the range with the addition of six newer models offering outputs from 60 to 200kVA.

Tony Calippe, spokesman for 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 reliable 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 transport- friendly and designed to be highly impact resistant. Other standard features include: easy-to-read gauges; easy-to-access maintenance points; and a galvanized canopy.

Chicago Pneumatic have recently introduced a host of new optional features to the CPDG range, including a variety of tow-bar and coupling combinations to fulfil the needs of different customers. Fully approved for use throughout the EU, 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 be used on uneven surfaces, or if it needs be moved across the ground over short distances.

To provide operators with the option of extended run times, CPDG generators are now be equipped with higher-capacity fuel tanks. This, coupled with 500h service intervals, means the diesel generators are suited to applications where a unit is required to reliably run for a high number of hours with reduced attention from the operator.
