Whether you need all-day power or just a reliable 8kva diesel backup generator, none are built tougher than ABLE’s 8kVA 240V Diesel Generator. These water-cooled, low RPM (1,500) 8kVA generator models are particularly ideal for hot, Australian conditions and perfect for reliable extended or standby use in residential, commercial, farming and off-grid solar operations, including regions where storms and harsh climates are common. This particular 8 kVA model (GL8D1) is an extremely popular diesel backup generator for the home and farm.
What sets Able Sales apart?
Our generators are not standard factory machines that other competitors can buy, our machines have had 10’s of years of refinements and modifications and are made to our high Australian standards.
A Diesel powered generator is by far the best choice for off-grid power production or as an ideal complement for off-grid solar power for running your home essentials like your kitchen, laundry tv, computer and lighting. Less than 2% - CLEAN SINEWAVE POWER output is good for all sensitive electronic equipment.
With diesel generators, fuel is injected into the diesel engine using an injector whereas a carburettor is used for gasoline engines. In a gasoline engine, fuel and air are sent into the engine together and then compressed. The air and fuel mixture limits fuel compression, and hence the overall efficiency. Diesel generators win on fuel efficiency because the diesel generators motor has a higher compression. Diesel generators engines, therefore, last longer, cost less to run and take longer to depreciate in value.
Benefits of ALL ABLE Generators
All ABLE generators are either selected or specially designed to withstand the harsh Australian environment and usage. They are "made tough to last" for maximum longevity. They are also reliable, fuel-efficient and incredible value for money. It will be hard to find a generator of a better value in Australia.
