Power Up Anywhere

You don't want to be caught without backup power at your home or jobsite in the middle of a storm, let alone during hurricane season. The good news is that you don't need to shell out thousands of dollars to keep your operation running. The better news is that Cat Portable Generators will keep on running when you need them most and won't confuse you with their controls.


When it comes to backup power for your personal, commercial, or emergency needs, it's crucial to invest in equipment you can depend on for consistent performance and unmatched efficiency. Caterpillar® engineers applied every bit of technical and engineering know-how that comes from producing the world’s toughest machines when they designed the Cat Portable Generators.

Features and benefits of our Cat portable generators for sale include:

  • 32MM thick, all-steel construction
  • Heavy-duty, never-flat wheels
  • Foldable handle for easy mobility and storage
  • Overhead Valve (OHV) engine
  • Auto-charging lithium-ion battery (on E models)
  • Oversized fuel tank for up to 15 hours of run time
  • Electric start options on 7500 E and 6500 E models
  • Compact wiring to minimize safety hazards and damage to your unit
  • Low oil shutdown protection
  • Simple control panels to easily start and operate, day or night
