VMAC releases 6-in-1 multifunction power system with CAT engine
The VMAC Multifunction includes a rotary screw air compressor, generator, welder, battery booster/charger, PTO with optional hydraulic pump, and integrated cold climate kit.
The CAT variation of VMAC's Multifunction was engineered by VMAC specially for CAT mechanics, after receiving a request from Finning, the world's largest Caterpillar equipment dealer. Finning's global Sustainability Policy demonstrates their commitment to people, safety, environment, product stewardship, communities and ethics and governance.
"Finning approached our team to help them accomplish their sustainability goals, and asked us to create a variation of our Multifunction Power System that used a Caterpillar engine," said Gord Duval, VP of Marketing & Sales at VMAC. "We have worked with Finning for more than 20 years and are always happy to collaborate on innovative new products."
This latest VMAC Multifunction has a C1.1 industrial diesel engine, which provides additional benefits beyond the typical multi-power system. The C1.1 utilizes lower engine speeds, which reduces noise, and is easy to maintain due to single-side servicing.
The C1.1 also requires less maintenance and only needs to be serviced every 500 hours. This lengthy service interval is notable when compared to the 100–200 hour service intervals that are typical with other small industrial engines.
"The new Multifunction with CAT Power is the perfect example of how our partnership can lead to fantastic new products. You don't need to be affiliated with Caterpillar to appreciate and enjoy the benefits of this system," said Mr. Duval.
VMAC's Multifunction with CAT Power can be ordered through any one of VMAC's 300+ dealers across the globe.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
