600kW Caterpillar Purchase Case Study

New Arrival-600kW Caterpillar GenSet

Generator Source had a recent purchasing opportunity on a 600kW Caterpillar generator going out of service due to the seller purchasing a bigger building and the generator was not included in the sale.

The seller chose to do business with Generator Source because the generator had to be removed within a week from initial contact. The work would then fall on our team to uninstall the generator and transport the generator to our yard in Brighton Colorado - a big task for any used generator business.
