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.

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.

  • Made Tough to Last: ABLE generators are either designed by our in-house generator experts or carefully selected from our preferred suppliers based on quality, performance, reliability, longevity, and safety. They are built to high-quality standards and then each model is thoroughly tested, to ensure they will perform and withstand Australia's most challenging environments and usage.
  • Ready to Go: We supply this generator fully prepared and primed with all fluids, ready for use upon receipt. Our in-house team thoroughly tests and preps every generator set with all fluids so it's ready for use immediately upon receipt.
  • Easy-to-Find Consumables: It's such a hassle when consumables and parts you require to maintain your generator are hard to find, months after purchase when your supplier stops stocking for your model. Our generator consumables like filters will be available through us long after the warranty expires, or they are available almost everywhere.
  • Full Spare Parts Stocked, Long After Warranty Expires: We will continue to stock parts for all our generators long after the warranty expires to keep you up and running.

Why Choose a Diesel Generator?

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 carburetor 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 generator's motor has higher compression. Diesel generator engines, therefore, last longer, cost less to run, and take longer to depreciate in value.

"Have had for two years now, and is currently running as power is out. Love this for peace of mind. Running all house a/c units, computer lights, pool pump & chlorinator, plus air compressor cycling in/out. Not missing a beat. One issue is that it uses so little fuel, I have to run unit occasionally to stop fuel from going stale in the tank. Suppose not really an issue. Very cheap to run & maintenance is easy. Mine is coupled with an ATS so I can leave for extended periods with confidence. Highly recommended and worth the extra outlay. I have solar & mains feed in, electrician was also impressed on how big on features this unit was for the low cost. Great machine for having connected to the house. Big ticks here."
