JCB launches towable generators designed specifically for North American rental market

By Megan Hoegler   



JCB Power Products has launched a range of RS generators designed for the North American rental market.

The new lineup of generators includes five Tier 4 final-compliant models delivering prime power outputs between 56 kW (70 kVA) and 500 kW (625 kVA).

The five new models are:

  • The G70RS, which produces 56 kW (70 kVA).
  • The G125RS, which produces 100 kW (125 kVA).
  • The G220RS, which produces 175 kW (220 kVA).
  • The G400RS, which produces 320 kW (400 kVA).
  • And the G625RS, which produces 500 kW (625 kVA).

The generators have operating weights ranging from 7,239 lb (3,283 kg) to 25,209 lb (11,435 kg).  Simple Tier 4-Final aftertreatment requires selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) only. No diesel particulate filter (DPF) or diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) is required.

Other features of the new line include high quality components from JCB, Volvo, MeccAlte, Deep Sea Electronics, DEIF and Schneider Electric; Easy-to-access controls with automatic mains failure (AMF) and synchronizing capabilities and CB LiveLink advanced telematics to provide real-time diagnostic information.

Panel-mounted voltage test points and bus hot warning lamps provide easy verification of live circuits with no risk of contact. Voltage can also be altered using a three-position, three-phase and single-phase alternator mounted rotary switch, allowing the operator to switch the voltage instantly, without requiring cable reconnections.Each model in the JCB RS Generator range features 500-hour service intervals to ensure minimal downtime and maximum productivity. When maintenance or scheduled service is required, large service access doors, with integrated door stops, make it easy to access the engine and alternator.
