Should I buy a used diesel generator?
Nick Coulson
You should never buy a used generator unless it has an ironclad warranty backing it up. Generators have numerous moving parts, and every component needs warranty coverage. If the original warranty still covers the unit, it is imperative to verify that the warranty will transfer to you following the sale. However at able sales we sell new generators almost at used diesel generator prices, compare with other brands and you'll see how incredibly good value they are. Also when buying a used diesel generator you are not buying a generator to match your needs unless you're very lucky to have found the right kVA that you need secondhand, buying the wrong size kVA can drastically reduce the life expectancy of the diesel generator so when buying from able sales we make sure that the diesel generator you're looking at is exactly the right size for your needs and if your needs grow in time most of our generators are synchronisable meaning you can add a second third or fourth generator and they do not need to be all the same size.
Which is better, Diesel or Petrol Generators?
Nick Coulson

The world today relies heavily on electric power and power backup infrastructure. Irrespective of the specific area of life, we would not be able to survive without it. If you live in a rural or remote area and experience sudden or frequent outages, then a generator is your best bet. Most consumers opt for diesel generators for understandable and obvious reasons. But like any crucial subject, there’s some difference of opinion on the matter. And, some basic knowledge is necessary to make the right decision. We will now look at the pros and cons of buying a genset. If the advantages outweigh the disadvantages, then you may go ahead with the purchase without delay. So, let’s begin with the pros first.

PRODUCT USAGE AND FEATURES:

Those who buy a diesel generator do so for varying reasons. But, mostly, it is due to the versatility feature. These gensets have multiple uses, making them the preferred choice. You may be thinking, is it good for my home too? The answer is ‘yes.’ However, your decision depends on your individual machinery needs. You can click here to make an informed decision regarding your purchase. Once you do so, you will be able to use it for full-time power and as a temporary arrangement.

FUEL CONSUMPTION

Fuel is the leading and decisive factor when buying a genset. Some people find petrol gensets to be more suitable. That’s because some diesel gensets may vary in terms of fuel efficiency. However, by and large, they are more beneficial than petrol. So, for a continuous power supply, diesel gensets are the answer.

FAVORABLE PERFORMANCE

Another vital aspect is related to the efficiency and performance of your equipment. And this one makes diesel gensets stand out from the rest. It reaches its peak level of efficiency rapidly, outdoing other types. Let’s understand how that happens. When you turn a diesel genset on, the built-in system allows it to handle the heat efficiently. Using the system, you do not need a radiator, a pump, a coolant, or even a gauge for measuring the temperature.

FEWER EXPENSES AND COSTS

Cost is another decisive factor behind any sort of purchase. Buying the product is beneficial due to its comparatively low cost. Secondly, due to the fuel effectiveness, they incur lesser expenses. Third, cost-efficiency comes in the form of less frequent maintenance. So, you will not need to replace any existing parts often.

BETTER LIFESPAN

The longevity factor is the second biggest reason why people buy this Genset. If you keep your equipment serviced and up to date, it will run for longer than your expectations. To do so, all you need is to follow the instructions manual and you can do it yourself.

CONS:

MAY LEAD TO NOISE POLLUTION Compared to petrol types, these gensets are louder. Due to this, some of the genesis is available with a canopy that insulates the noise. So, be sure to take enough insulating measures during the purchase. With Petrol, no doubt you have other petrol motors like a car, motorbike or lawnmower so having a diesel Genset means a second fuel to buy and store.

CONCLUSION:

A diesel genset is the only solution for all power-related issues. Its lower cost and efficiency make it equipment of preference. Also, you can find a high performance with these generators. Another factor is the increased lifespan. The more you take care of them, the better they will run. The noise factor, however, can be troubling. But, you can deal with it using some insulation. As we stated above, you can go ahead with your purchase if the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. Remember, you need a reliable solution to avoid any power plunge.

How much fuel does a generator use per hour?
Nick Coulson

The table below outlines an approximation of the generator fuel consumption per hour in litres. We have 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 efficiency by using this resource.

Please note this table should only be used as an indication only. Actual usage may vary slightly due to various factors.
