Our range of diesel generators includes the best portable generators manufactured internationally, designed to provide an economical and efficient source of electrical power to those who need to operate in remote locations and require a backup supply that will not let them down. We supply our clients with used or new generators made to the highest standard.
We have a wide variety of generators for a number of domestic and commercial applications, so we understand that finding the perfecting one for your requirements might seem daunting at first. We’ve spent some time putting together a simple check-list of considerations to help you narrow the choices.
Working out what you need
- Wattage – determine exactly how much power you’ll require for the items you wish to run.
- Domestic or professional – some generators are designed specifically for hobbyists and leisure use, others are perfect for workshops and commercial use.
- Equipment – do you want to run sensitive equipment such as computers or televisions straight from your generator? We have a range of inverter generators for sensitive electronics.
- Petrol or diesel – you need to consider the total cost of ownership when investing in a new generator. With a comprehensive petrol and diesel generator range, you’ll be able to pick the most cost efficient fuel source for your power requirements.
