Generator Prices can be found at local hardware stores and home improvement centers. Generators are also available to purchase from online generator stores.
What are the different sizes of
1000 KW Generators – small inverter type generators.
2000 KW Generators – medium sized generators.
What features are available when ordering
Electric Start – larger sized portable generators can require significant force to manually start. Electric start options enable remote starting with very little effort.
Low Oil Shutoff – In the event that your engine ends up running low on oil, this feature will stop the engine. As with any gasoline engine, running without oil is very damaging to engines.
Hour Meter – Generators sometimes have hour meters available as an option. Hour meters are very valuable in that they give a definitive answer as to how long a generator has been used. As many routine maintenance task intervals are specified in number of running hours, it is crucial to know how long a generator has been running between services.
What accessories are available for
Wheel kits / handle kits – Medium to larger sized portable generators can be pretty heavy. Propane generators are able to run off of the same propane tanks used to power typical residential gas grills.
Trickle Chargers – Generators with electric start options often sit for months without being used. In order to ensure that a generator starts after long periods of inactivity, it is recommended to use a trickle charger to keep the battery charged.
Natural Gas Conversion Kit – A recent development in the generator market is natural gas conversion kits. They allow an engine that was originally intended to burn gasoline to be converted to burn natural gas. Natural gas does not "go bad" and damage engine components as does gasoline when not used for long periods of time.
Generator Covers – Vinyl covers are a good way to protect your investment to make sure that it stays in good condition. Be sure not to place the cover on your generator until the engine has cooled.
Transfer Switches – Transfer switches are used to switch the power supply from the electric company power grid to personal generators.
