Chicago Pneumatic has set the benchmark in generator excellence with its diverse generator portfolio.

As an avid participant in the Mining & Technical Exhibition (MTE), the globally renowned high-performance tools and equipment specialist piqued the crowds’ interest with its display of the capabilities of the innovative CPPG5.5Kva portable generator at the Kathu MTE show held on 06 June 2019 in the Northern Cape.

“These MTEs have been central to Chicago Pneumatic’s drive to further expand our presence and brand awareness across Southern Africa,” affirms Eben van der Vyver, Chicago Pneumatic business development manager – Southern Africa. “Each new MTE presents us with the opportunity to not only showcase our in-depth generator expertise, but to also engage with potential customers and gain a greater understanding of the features and capabilities customers expect from their products.”

Alongside hosting an eye-catching, red and black stand, Chicago Pneumatic gives away a petrol-driven CPPG generator during a lucky draw at several MTE shows throughout the year. These efficient and premium quality units reflect advanced Belgian manufacturing and deliver simple operation and maintenance. Ranging from 2.3Kva to 14Kva models offered in silenced units, petrol and diesel machines as well as in an open frame variant, the compact CPPG generator range has been developed to cater to varying customer application requirements. With an easy ergonomic handle design the generators can be effortlessly lifted and transported on wheels, making them perfectly suited for both private and professional customers in the construction, demolition and rental sectors. Adding to its impressive features, the CPPG generators include reinforced fuel tanks and AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation).

Designed with high standard components, this rugged generator comprises a solid main frame which includes added reinforcement around sensitive components, covered and recessed sockets as well as a protected electrical panel. In line with the Chicago Pneumatic aim to assist customers to diminish downtime and enhance productivity, the reliable generator supplies a stable electrical output and safe, user-friendly operation over an extended service lifespan.

According to Van der Vyver the company takes a zero-compromise approach when it comes to quality and performance excellence, which is why the CPPG generators are tested for 1000 hours at 100% (full) load non-stop prior to the release of a batch of units. These intensive tests provide customers with peace of mind in the knowledge that they are receiving a thoroughly tried-and-tested product.

On the day attendees gathered enthusiastically, fingers crossed as they eagerly awaited the generator lucky draw. Van der Vyver was joined by the Van Heerdens, Chris and Sean, from Chicago Pneumatic distributor, Mega Volt in Kathu, to hand over the generator to the winner Michael Visser from Anglo American’s Kumba Iron Ore.

Wrapping up, Van der Vyver says, “Chicago Pneumatic is committed to bringing a purpose-fit, cutting-edge product and service suite to customers’ doorsteps so that they can focus on taking their business to greater heights at the lowest total cost of ownership.”
