International construction equipment manufacturer Chicago Pneumatic has launched its largest ever range of portable generators, designed to provide a safe and stable power supply for every type of worksite.

The CPPG range comes in two distinct lines. The new Pro Line includes Professional, Advanced and Advanced+ models offering powerful performance for all-day, intensive heavy-duty applications and provides different levels of functionality, depending on the needs of the user. The Standard Line contains a simple, straightforward petrol generator designed for occasional use.

Among the generators within the new Pro Line is the CPPG Professional model, designed for continuous usage and available either with a petrol or diesel engine. Users are protected by an optional Earth Leakage Relay (ELR) in both types of engine, while Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) is an option for the petrol-engine unit that ensures consistent electrical output.

The CPPG Advanced generator, with petrol and diesel engine options, is built for intensive, all day operation. The generator benefits from more advanced features and additional protection to extend its life expectancy and safety, making it particularly well suited to the rigours of the rental market. Alongside AVR, the CPPG Advanced model protects its users with an isometer protection and thermal protection circuit breaker, as well as incorporating an intuitive instrumentation panel, electric key start and a number of alarm and shutdown options.

Building to even higher standards, the CPPG Advanced+ generator is enclosed and soundproofed for the most demanding, dusty or heavily populated locations, as well as complying with European noise regulations.

The petrol-only CPPG Standard Line, launched in 2014, is ideally suited for private and professional users who occasionally need a portable generator. Straightforward and simple, CPPG Standard generators are designed to provide stable electrical output and safe, user-friendly operation over a long service life and come equipped with large, reinforced fuel tanks, ergonomic handles and AVR.

Commenting on the launch, Product Marketing Manager (Power) for Chicago Pneumatic, Daniel Escuer, said: “By launching our widest ever range of portable generators, we believe we can offer the construction industry the best possible choice, depending on their budget and their requirements. The models within both lines have different features but what they all have in common is reliable performance, robust build quality and simple operation to ensure users can complete their jobs quickly and effectively when on site. In this way they perfectly underline our position as a trusted partner for the construction industry globally.”

Both the Standard Line and Pro Line generators have been developed through extensive field testing and reflect Chicago Pneumatic’s reputation for equipment that is easy to operate and maintain. Features include user-friendly control panels and the option of an hour counter to help monitor maintenance schedules. Additionally, thanks to their simple handle design, the generators can be easily lifted or transported on wheels.

All CPPG models also feature a strong main frame with extra reinforcement around sensitive components and a protected electrical panel. Sockets are also covered and recessed for enhanced protection.
