We are excited to announce our newest die-cast Caterpillar model, the C175-20 Diesel Generator Set, a 1:25 scale model precisely crafted to replicate the real machine.
This impressive piece of equipment is capable of producing up to 4 MW of power, and is utilized in several integral functions of the mining industry such as exploration, construction, and production. Other applications for the C175-20 include back-up power for emergency situations at hospitals and data centers where reliability and performance are mission-critical. In a situation where the power grid is dangerously burdened, it can also be used as a primary source of electricity for rural communities or job sites.
The engine itself has found use powering the enormous Cat 797F mining truck. With 20 cylinders, each displacing 5.3 liters, the C175-20 can produce 4,000 horsepower in its single engine block. Amongst its features are four turbochargers, an electronic common-rail fuel system which delivers multiple fuel injections at a time, and an air-to-air aftercooler which combine to make it one of the most efficient high-speed diesel generator sets available.
Our precision scale reproduction of the C175-20 comes mounted on its transport frame as though it were ready for installation. All the fuel lines, exhaust connections, and turbochargers are in effect. The control console is fully detailed, and the model sports a full set of Caterpillar-approved markings and paint. Shipped in a collector’s box, it will include an individually serial-numbered machine brochure to certify authenticity.
Our initial production run will be not more than 2250 models produced exclusively for distribution from Caterpillar. We are however, happy to inform that a separate production run of 250 models will be made and sold exclusively through CCM. Price and availability will be posted as soon as it is finalized.
