Kohler, Perc Launch Two Additional Propane-Powered Mobile Generator Models

Sept. 7, 2014

WASHINGTON (Sept. 2, 2014) – Kohler has expanded its mobile generator product line with the addition of two propane-powered models developed in cooperation with the Propane Education & Research Council. These two new models, the 50REZGT and the 70REZGT, join the 125REZGT propane-powered mobile generator that Kohler and PERC introduced at The Rental Show in Feb. 2014.

The 50-kVA 50REZGT features a 4.3-liter naturally aspirated engine, while the 70-kVA 70REZGT boasts a 5.7-liter engine. Each mobile generator model connects to an external, on-site propane source for extended use. Both can also be outfitted with an optional on-board LP tank that provides fuel for up to 24 hours of use. These particular mobile generator models are ideal for providing safe, reliable, and efficient power for the construction, commercial, event rental, and water utility markets.

Measured by carbon footprint, propane is one of the greenest energy sources available. As a result, Kohler’s propane-powered mobile generators produce fewer emissions, toxins, and less smog than those powered by other fuels. And, because propane vaporizes at atmospheric pressure, there’s virtually no risk of potentially dangerous, groundwater-contaminating fuel spills on the jobsite.

According to Bridget Kidd, PERC’s director of residential and commercial programs, Kohler’s newest mobile generator models give even more professionals the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of clean, cost-effective, American-made propane.

“Thanks to its lower emissions, greater efficiency and overall value, propane is becoming widely recognized as an ideal alternative fuel for residential and commercial systems, appliances, and equipment,” Kidd said. “Kohler’s new mobile generator models are yet another example of how propane can provide consumers and professionals with optimum power and performance while ensuring a cleaner, safer environment.”

Kohler’s propane-powered mobile generators offer numerous benefits, and now, PERC is also making them more affordable through its Propane Heat & Power Incentive Program. This program encourages construction professionals, homeowners, and businesses to adopt new, propane-powered products for residential and commercial use. Qualifying and select participants who purchase Kohler’s two new propane-powered mobile generators can receive financial incentives of $1,000 to $3,500 simply for sharing their product usage experiences with PERC.

KOBELCO SK210D Multi-Dismantling Machine Now Available for US Market

Houston, TX ““ KOBELCO Construction Machinery USA is pleased to announce the availability of their new SK210D Multi-Dismantling machine in North America. Contractors got a sneak peak at this machine at ConExpo 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada in March, where KOBELCO showcased it being used to dismantle an automobile. KOBELCO has manufactured more than 1000 of these machines in Japan since 1979, where they are a demolition market leader.

Popular in scrap metal yards, machines like the SK210D are multifaceted when it comes to dismantling complex equipment that requires delicate handling such as automobiles, where environmental laws require that steps be taken to contain oils and other contaminates that may be harmful to the environment. The speed and accuracy of dismantling automobiles with this machine is increased ten-fold over hand dismantling, savings owners substantially on labor costs and minimizing the risk of fines. Rather than requiring a team of workers, dismantling can now be handled by one machine and one operator. The SK210 is the first of KOBELCO’s demolition machines available in North America.

The SK210 Multi-Dismantling Machine is designed to take apart vehicle bodies, engines and other metal components with precise, safe and efficient operation. Two specialized crushers allow for different dismantling tasks: 1) a multi-dismantling crusher is suited for small-scale separating and the sorting of all types of metal products, including small parts such as electrical fittings and harnesses; and 2) an optional vehicle-dismantling crusher offers a powerful grab, increased cutting force and rotational torque powerful enough to cut through a chassis and frame. The KOBELCO Innovation Clamp Arm features a bowl-shaped grip and power cutting teeth with different shapes on the right and left sides to enable efficient bending, breaking and tearing.

The advanced features highlight KOBELCO’s dedication to providing equipment that functions efficiently and safely in real-world worksite situations and conditions. The new SK210D Dismantling Machine offers a powerful and practical solution to nearly any demolition dismantling task through the use of rugged design, a comfortable operator cab and controls, and an energy-efficient engine and hydraulic system. It is a fuel efficient, eco-friendly machine that will help boost metals recycling.

KOBELCO Construction Machinery USA is dedicated to producing a full range of crawler excavators in the 3,000 lb. to 184,000 lb. classes for the rental, landscape, construction, aggregate, roadbuilding, material handling, site preparation, recycling and ancillary markets, including zero tail swing, standard, long-reach and compact models.
