The compact 300.9D VPS can be used either with its diesel engine or, in conjunction with its separate hydraulic power unit, from a remote electrical power source.

The performance specification is the same, regardless of the power source.

Caterpillar reckons that the dual power option will help rental companies maximise utilisation as it can be rented alone for regular applications or with the hydraulic power unit when the job requires low noise and zero emissions.
