Silent Diesel Generator


Since 2005 this has been our most popular generator. Introducing the Aurora 6500SDE Silenced Diesel Generator. Homeowners chose this model more than any other portable diesel generator because it has enough power to get them through emergencies. It is used to power a fridge, freezers, well pumps, furnaces, TVs and lights. Because it is quieter then traditional generators and produces virtually no visible smoke it makes it ideal for residential neighborhoods.

Many generator companies would have you believe they sell a quality product. Without some quality assurance company and certification backing them up, the claims are meaningless. Electrical devices must have UL, CSA or ETL laboratory testing for safety and to insure performance requirements are met. Without approvals buyers have no guarantee of quality. Certification is also required by law in most jurisdictions.

Aurora Generators are proud to be the only company selling a generator of this kind that is ETL approved to CSA Standard 22.2 No 100. We don’t just talk about quality, we have quality assurance companies backing up our claims.



Aurora generators are created differently then others with a focus on "quality" not quantity sales. Aurora is actively involved in manufacturing, assembly and quality control. Products are built from the ground up with higher grade components and materials carefully selected to guarantee The Aurora Silent Diesel Generator is stronger and longer lasting. Aurora is responsible for their own engines and alternators unlike others who buy completed ones from the lowest wholesalers. Consumer reports rank Aurora one of the leading companies in the industry with superior products, customer service and best value.

Generator Panel

Silent Diesel Generator Panel


When starting this generator you have two options. You can use a key switch like you do when starting a car or you can use the included remote control.

For cold weather starting, this generator has a built in pre heater. This means you can warm it up before starting. Warming the air fuel mixture helps it to vaporize in the combustion chamber and helps eliminate any starting difficulties traditionally found on other generators that don't use one.

A digital multi-meter is used on this silent diesel generator. The meter shows voltage, hour usage and frequency. This new frequency counter shows the operating frequency to 0.1 Hz This is a very useful feature. Many computers and UPS power supplies require exactly 60Hz output and since engine speed is directly proportional to output frequency, you can now make these adjustments and monitor them on this display.

Voltage adjustments are also easy to make. Many other companies install theirs inside the alternator where they often overheat and fail. Installing it outside of the alternator eliminates complicated dis-assembly and makes making fine voltage regulator adjustments easy.

Aurora generators like this one are approved to CSA Standard 22.2 No 100 This means they are built better and electrically sound. It is a standard few others can compare to. The CSA Standards are far better than European CE or even UL Standards. It is also a guarantee that no aluminum wiring is used.

Cold Start Pre-Heater Pre-heater can be turned on to pre-heat air fuel mixture for easier cold starting. Warming the air fuel mixture helps it to vaporize in the combustion chamber and helps eliminate any starting difficulties traditionally found on other generators that don't use one.


Remote Starter

Silent Diesel Generator Remote


The built-in remote control gives you wireless control over the generator starting function. Two transmitters are included. Many other generators made in China use remote controls on frequencies that here in North America maybe used for other devices resulting in poor performance and interference. The ones used by us not only carry electrical approval, they also have FCC approval unlike other manufactures



These types of generators are often referred to as silent. That is because they are much quieter then their open frame versions or a gas equivalent. Aurora Generators are even quieter in competition for a few reasons. Aurora uses higher quality insulation, heavier enclosures and a better muffler system. Two mufflers and a combination flex pipe / catalytic converter are used here. The exhaust is clear and cool. Emissions are cleaner than from a gasoline generator and are safer for the environment. Stinky black smoke something you should only see on other generators.

Portable Diesel Generators

Long Lasting, Higher Quality, Portable Diesel Generators

If you are in Canada or the USA than Electrical devices such as these portable diesel generators, must have UL, CSA or ETL laboratory testing. This type of testing is for safety and to insure performance requirements are met. Many diesel generator companies would have you believe they sell a quality product but, many other generator companies do not have any such quality assurance company and certification to backup any of their product; Aurora does.  Aurora Generators are ETL approved to UL and CSA Standards 22.2 No 100.  This is why so many people trust Aurora Generators to deliver on the promise of higher quality and value for their money.

Thirteen horsepower engines are only able to drive up to 6500 watt generator heads.  The next step beyond these single-cylinder air cooled portable diesel engines is the multi-cylinder liquid cooled engines. The liquid cooled engines run at half the speed and produce a lot more power.  The liquid cooled engines can also outlast the single-cylinder engines by ten to one.  Liquid cooled engines are able to run nonstop. Air cooled engines are not designed to run continuously and should not run continuously. Doing so shortens their life expectancy. Understandingy during emergencies air cooled generator are used this way.

The next size from these generators is our 10,000 Watt Whole Home Generators.

Why Buy Diesel

Diesel generators are more reliable than gas because diesel fuel is a light-grade oil. Inside engines there are many moving parts that create friction. Gasoline and propane are solvent-based fuels which promote friction and wear. Diesel being a lubricant reduces friction and wear. Today’s diesel engines last the longest, run a lot quieter and cleaner then ever before. If you watch our demo videos you will notice there is no visible smoke from our generators. The enclosed silent diesel generator is also quieter then an equivalent gasoline generator.

Why Pick Aurora Brand Generators

Aurora Generators Inc., was incorporated in 2005. Since that time Aurora has become one of the largest and MOST TRUSTED online suppliers of portable diesel generators and standby diesel generators in North America. Aurora is directly involved in manufacturing, assembly and its own quality control. Many products had been designed by Aurora with each and every component carefully chosen over many suppliers of similar parts. This practice and unique designs used results in products that are superior in quality, more durable and last longer then its competitors.

The generator industry is full of companies and individuals sellers who buy counterfeit products and cheap assemblies rather than manufacturing their own. They have no involvement in the production process other than to put their own sticker on and import it from China. We encourage you to search for consumer reports and other public records with The Better Business Bureau. Many companies have no records since they have not been around long enough or worse, have some reports filed have horrible quality, service and support.

With Aurora Diesel Generators no matter where you search you will be hard pressed to find any negative reviews. Aurora has more parts, better quality control, support staff, online manuals, toll-free support and live chat. Aurora focuses on quality not quantity.
