Should I buy a petrol or a diesel generator? It's a tough question, but to answer it you must analyse exactly what you want to achieve with your genset.
As a general rule of thumb, the bigger the operation the g...
What are ABLE compressor pumps made of?
All of the pumps from ABLE SALES are made from cast iron. The compressors use copper connecting pipes with stainless steel reed valves, giving the equipment durability and longevity. To allow for better heat dissipation, our products use raised heads and multiple cooling fins.
Which compressor is best suited to spray painting?...
Stop! Don’t buy that generator just yet… We don’t want you to waste your hard earned money! The importer may have over stated the kVA Rating.
While the generator you are looking at may be cheap, that doesn't mean it is good value. Recently there have been examples of unscrupulous importers saying a generator produces more kVA or kW than it really does. Don't be fooled.
Taking a trip into the outback can be an exciting experience and this time of year is perfect as the WA Kimberley outback is in the temperate ‘dry season’ while the rest of us are shivering in the city winter!
Getting to the beautiful spots of the remote outback takes a few days of camping and travelling, so you’re going to need to have a power generator to cook some hot me...

Or perhaps to escape skyrocketing energy prices. In Australia particularly, where rural electrification is still a little behind, mo...
Electricity outages: are they unavoidable?
Australia is a huge country with vast distances between major cities and regional towns. The farther you venture from population centres the more potential there is for an unreliable electricity connection. The problem is exacerbated during major weather events which can leave remote communities and farms isolated ...
The table below outlines an approximation of the diesel generator fuel consumption per hour in litres. We’ve shown the usage at various load levels across a range of generators from 10kVA to 500kVA.
We hope you can get a better idea of diesel generator efficiency by using this resource.
Please note this table should only be used as an indication only. Actual usage may vary sl...
Making a Case for Home Generator Systems
Living in semi-rural, regional and remote areas unfortunately means issues with electricity reliability. Power outages like extended blackouts or brownouts where you are drawing very low levels of electricity from the grid (and potentially damaging your electrical equipment) are commonplace. Extreme weather, fallen trees, and ...
