Water and sewer technicians require equipment that is versatile enough to work in nearly any climate and environment. Time is often of the essence, so they can’t allow anything to stop them on the job site. With everything needed built into a single compact system, the VMAC 6-in-1 Multifunction Power System is designed to make those technicians ready for anything. This self-contained system can be fully integrated into any diesel work truck fuel system or skid-mounted for stand-alone applications with an optional external fuel tank.

The newest version of the VMAC Multifunction comes with a Caterpillar engine and is available to CAT dealers and other customers across North America. The unit 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 System was engineered by VMAC especially for CAT mechanics, after receiving a request from Finning, the world’s largest CAT equipment dealer. According to the company, 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,” says Gord Duval, vice president of marketing and 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 multipower system. The C1.1 offers 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- to 200-hour service intervals that are typical with other small industrial engines. In addition to hydroexcavation and industrial vacuum trucks, applications include mobile heavy-duty mechanics, heavy-equipment repair technicians, and remote access jobs in mining, logging, and oil and gas.

“The new Multifunction with CAT power is the perfect example of how our partnership can lead to fantastic new products,” Duval says. “You don’t need to be affiliated with Caterpillar to appreciate and enjoy the benefits of this system.” 800-738-8622;
