The Do’s and Don’ts of CAT Generators


Do you have a CAT generator, and if so, are you familiar with the benefits you can gain from a generator modification shop? CAT is a trusted and reliable brand, but sometimes you want to get a little bit more power from it or tweak it to better fit your needs without having to invest in a whole new generator system. With the right modification shop, you can get it done, but it's critical to do it right. Be aware of these dos and don'ts of CAT generator modification:

Generator Modification Don’ts:

First and foremost, don't DIY this project. Secondly, don't trust a modification shop that doesn't have extensive and proven CAT experience. You don't want to end up with a product that works worse than it did before the improvements!

Generator Modification Dos:

The number one thing to keep in mind when you’re considering generator modification is to trust a professional. Complex equipment like generators, especially large or commercial equipment, requires specific experience and technical know-how, in addition to safety precautions and understanding industry standards. It might seem easy to add a breaker or a socket outlet, but to get it done right, safely, and so it will work long-term without issues, a tech with CAT experience is the only way to go.

Some good options to consider when looking at upgrades to your generator include:

  • Breakers
  • Load banks
  • Fuel cleaning systems
  • LED lights
  • Louvers
  • CAM locks
  • Fuel spill prevention
  • Day tank conversions
