CAT INV1250 1000W Inverter Generator Features:

  • CAT INV1250 is a compact portable inverter generator designed for work and play. It is powered by a Caterpillar 60cc OHV w/ 3600-RPM max.
  • This 120V @ 60-Hz CAT generator produces 1250 Starting Watts and 1000 Running Watts. At 50% load, it can run for almost 8 hours. This lightweight inverter runs as quietly as an air conditioner at 52 - 61dBA.
  • To get 2000W of power you can connect two INV1250 units using the Cat 30 Amp Inverter Parallel Kit (530-1202).
  • The splash lubrication system reduces the need for maintenance. For its safety, the engine automatically shuts down when the oil level is low.
  • The control panel with LED illumination allows you to check the status of the generator in the dark. Indicator lights go on in the event of low oil, overload, and when running.
  • The fuel tank is made of plastic and stores 0.82 gallons / 3.18 liters of unleaded gasoline > 87 octane.
  • CAT INV1250 produces clean power with < 3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), which is ideal for sensitive electronics such as laptops, tablets, and cell phones.
  • This model has an intuitive single start/stop switch with an integrated choke.
  • It is equipped with an engine smart control switch. When you turn the switch on the engine will run on varying speeds to conserve fuel, and reduce wear and noise.
  • Receptacles include 1x 5-20R, 1x 5V 2.1A USB, and 1x 5V 1.0A USB.
  • At only 38.6 lbs, this portable inverter generator is easy to carry around with its integrated handle and can go anywhere with you. Compact design takes up less storage space.
  • CAT INV1250 is EPA and CARB compliant.
  • It is backed by a 2-year warranty extendable to 3-years when registered within 30 days. 

The all new CAT INV1250 is a lightweight portable model that will keep the lights and fans running in the event of a power failure at home or work. When you go camping, hunting or have to work with tools at the construction site this inverter will give you clean power to fulfill your energy needs. When you parallel one unit with another you can run two mini-fridges, two microwaves, and two laptops along with lights and fans. 2000W of power is ample enough for your POS system at the workplace along with lights and fans. The employees can continue to make coffee during breaks and heat their meals in the microwave. 

For a camping trip, this model will serve to be the most reliable partner. It will run the slow cooker, mosquito repellent lantern, light, and the fan. It has the USB receptacles that allow you to charge cell phones and tablets so you can keep in close contact with family members and co-workers while out in the wilderness. In case your car breaks down, you can call the tow truck within a matter of seconds. The generator keeps you safe at work and play. At home, it saves you from financial damage. Replacing rotten food costs money and when all the foods stay fresh there will be no need to buy more.
