**SOLD** Caterpillar Standby Generator

I'm helping my uncle sell a generator. If anyone is interested please let me know.

Caterpillar SR4B 3406 Gen Set.
- 2000 Model
- 14.64 Liter Diesel in-line 6 cylinder engine
- 169 hours on it
- 350 kW (350,000 watt)
- 480 Volt 3-phase
- Generator inside the optional enclosure

Here's a link to the spec sheet on CATs website. http://www.cat.com/cda/components/se...&fileId=701757

The generator is on a skid and ready to be delivered. If you are seriously interested, please contact me for pricing. I will say that the price is about half that of a brand new one.

I can provide photos if requested.

Still for sale...here are some pictures.



















This is what an almost 15 liter, 500 horsepower, diesel looks like when it first starts.

There must be some type of commercial equipment trade magazine that posts those kinds of classifieds?
That's not to say don't give it a shot here. I just like looking at the damn thing. If I could build a cabin on a mountain in the middle of nowhere, I'd need that! or maybe half of it.....

...or 1/10th of it.

Just posted it here because several people on here have lots of connections so thought I'd try the free route first. Just pass along a link to anyone you think may be interested. The target audience is most likely going to be a medium to large business owner or someone who owns/manages a hotel or strip mall. Industrial companies are big power users with high demand for up-time so they are good leads as well.

Yeah, I know. I just forwarded this post to a friend with an industrial shop.

Good luck.

It is in Owensboro, KY. The only service record is on the service record log on the inside of one of the doors. There is one record from a CAT service technician for a checkup at 90 hours. The generator has approximately 170 hours on it. If it ran 24/7, 170 hours is just over 7 days. You need this for your NOC.

This is a 480/208V generator. I can't edit my original post or I would fix it.

EDIT: I'll try to find the manual where it tells how to change the voltage and post it here.

I'm not surprised. If the potential buyer isn't familiar enough to know that....

People with money don't "buy" things. They provide specs to a vendor and receive a product.

It's a generalization...

Probably won't save you much on batteries. It does have a 400 gallon diesel fuel tank and an almost 15 liter engine. It consumes between 14 and 27 gallons per hour.

Try DieselProgress.com. I believe they have a classified section.

I would also try the Diesel Forum

Should be marked as a WT Milestone?
