Take a look at our mobile generator set information below to learn how we can support your operations with top-of-the-line Cat power generation products.

What Are Mobile Generator Sets?

A mobile generator is any type of generator that offers a portable power supply for temporary applications. Mobile generators can run on diesel, natural gas, and other common fuel types, and they range in power generation capacity.

The type of mobile generator set you need depends on the requirements of your specific application, including:

  • Wattage: Your total power requirements will directly impact the size of the generator you need.
  • Available space: While wattage needs are generally more important for determining generator size, you’ll also want to ensure you choose one that fits into your job site.
  • Fuel type: Electric generators typically use either natural gas or diesel fuel to produce electricity, and each fuel type comes with its own advantages and disadvantages.

We offer mobile generator sets that accommodate extensive power supply needs across multiple industries. From providing temporary power solutions for businesses during a renovation period to supplying backup power during severe weather, our Cat mobile generator sets are as versatile as they are convenient.

Mobile Generator Set Applications

You can use mobile generator sets for many different purposes. Because of their mobile designs and user-friendly controls and diagnostic tools, we can install these generators quickly and efficiently in a wide variety of settings, including health care facilities, schools, construction sites, office buildings, and more.

Some common uses for mobile generator sets are:

  • Providing a continuous backup power source during a lapse in the main power supply.
  • Supporting increased power needs during special events.
  • Providing additional power during peak production times.
  • Delivering power on remote job sites without grid access.
  • Offering a fast, convenient means of continuous power generation in emergencies.

Whatever your application, we offer solutions that will fit your needs. Cat generators are some of the most dependable power sources on the market, and with our coverage and service options, you can rest assured you’ll get the most out of your investment.

Why Rent a Generator?

Why Rent a Generator?

The many benefits of renting a generator include:

  • Lower upfront costs: A backup generator is a sizable investment, especially for large sites. Renting is a much more cost-effective option for short-term power generation needs.
  • Minimal maintenance: We perform routine maintenance and servicing on all our rental equipment so you can count on your generator as a reliable source of power.
  • No storage requirement: Once you’re done with your rental, you can simply return it to us — no need to find space to store it for long periods of time.
