Caterpillar Introduces Fourth Mobile Generator Set Designed to Meet Tier 4 Final Emission Standards

For Worldwide Release: May 13, 2016
Release Number: EEPR0316

PEORIA, IL – Caterpillar Inc. today announced the expansion of the company’s line of rental power solutions with the introduction of the Cat® XQ60 mobile diesel generator set. Rated at 60 kVA for prime operation, the new product meets Tier 4 Final emission standards while improving fuel efficiency and optimizing productivity for rental operations in the United States and Canada.

The XQ60 is Caterpillar’s fourth Tier 4 Final mobile generator set in the range extending from 35 to 570 kVA. 

“For the latest XQ mobile generator set, we completely refreshed the design focusing on meeting more than just the emission regulations with new features specifically designed for the end user,” says Brian Kruse, general manager at Caterpillar Rental Power. “We were able to reduce the overall package weight allowing the unit to be mounted in a single axle trailer, which provides superior maneuverability when compared to a twin axle trailer. But beyond that, we achieved the Tier 4 Final emissions without the addition of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF).”

Equipped with Caterpillar’s easy to use EMCP 4.2B control panel, the Cat XQ60 includes power metering, protective relaying and engine and generator control and monitoring. The EMCP 4.2B also enhances performance and ease of operation by integrating the voltage regulator and simplifying the process for changing voltage to suit various applications. Multiple distribution options provide additional receptacles for customers to conveniently connect to based-on operation needs. 

A robust, rental-ready construction allows for easy and efficient transportation around project sites, while a smaller footprint saves space and provides installation versatility. The galvanized enclosure protects the XQ60 from potentially harsh environments.

Capable of 500-hour oil change intervals, the XQ60 features increased uptime, lower maintenance costs and consumes fewer parts and oil making it friendlier for the environment.

All Cat XQ mobile generator sets are supported by the Cat dealer network. Cat dealers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist with customer’s emergency rental needs. Caterpillar’s service network ensures access to prompt; quality repairs by trained technicians at Caterpillar authorized service locations.
