Are Caterpillar Generators for Sale Worth It?

"The top choice for those looking for a portable motor is this CAT RP12000E 12000 Running Watts/15000 Starting Watts Gas Powered Portable, which comes from the same company known for making quality construction equipment.

"This is one heavy-duty portable generator. The Cat RP12000E Gas Powered Portable Generator 502-3699 is user-friendly and safe enough to use for household electricity needs yet tough and powerful enough to withstand rough handling on job sites.

With its extra-large gas tank and V-twin engine, you can run appliances, power tools and electronics for half a day. Although it’s gasoline powered, the generator has an electric-start dial and LED panel for quick startups and night visibility."
