CAT RP3600 - EPA Portable Generator Features:

  • CAT RP3600 - EPA is a portable generator designed for heavy outdoor duty. It runs on a reliable 212cc OHV Caterpillar engine with a max 3600-RPM.
  • This 120v 60 Hz CAT generator produces 4500 Starting Watts and 3600 Running Watts. The runtime at 50% load is 13.5 hours. It runs quietly making it a neighborhood friendly option.
  • The 3.6kW generator has a splash oil lubrication system. Recommended oil is SAE30 or 10W-30. When the oil level is low the engine protects itself by shutting down.
  • The extra-large fuel tank stores 17 liters or 4.5 gallons of gasoline and has an easy to read fuel gauge.
  • It has a smart alternator with an automatic voltage regulator (AVR) that adjusts the engine speed to the load without dropping power to other appliances that can damage the product.
  • The model features 5 snap-fit rubber covered outlets that include a 30-amp 120-volt RV–ready outlet (adapter not required).
  • The engine is housed in a heavy-duty roll cage for maximum protection.
  • LED Control Panel can be used to check volts, hertz, running hours and total hours, even in the dark.
  • The generator is easy to move around with its padded, double-hinged handle and tires that never go flat.
  • The snap-fit rubber outlet covers protect the unit from dust, debris, and moisture.
  • Compact design and foldable handles allow for easy storage as it takes up less space.
  • All CAT products are backed by a nationwide dealer network and multi-language call center.
  • Warranty: 2-year limited, extendable to 3-years when registered within 30 days. 

CAT RP3600 - EPA is specially designed for versatile uses. During a storm when the power goes out this generator will keep the microwaves, refrigerators, box fans, phone chargers, and TVs running so you can carry on with the day as usual. The power it produces is safe for use with sensitive electronics that we use daily. The Automatic Voltage Regulator provides superior voltage regulation and provides a fast response to the changing load conditions. 

This small yet sturdy generator is easy to use and maintain. Simple, intuitive controls allow you to start and stop it easily. When you go camping take this generator along to run the essentials. It will also keep the air conditioner running in your RV so the family can have a comfortable trip. Use the USB port to quickly charge your tablet or phone or laptop. It is a perfect fit for the farm, contracting work, job sites, emergencies, homeowners, or special events. 

The EPA Certified engine lasts longer than the competition. This model outperforms other portable generators in its class. Low cost, compact design, safety features such as automatic low-oil level shutdown, Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) and covered wiring make it a preferable choice. CAT generators are manufactured to the highest standards. These sturdy generators are built for durability and are equipped with powerful Caterpillar OHV engines. Caterpillar builds products to last you a lifetime.
