Bare Bones Diesel Generators

For the do-it-yourselfer.

Aurora designs Bare Bones generators for equipment manufacturers and the do-it-yourselfer. Just like all our generators, they can be run long and hard. They are simple, easy to use, and extremely reliable. We use Perkins engines, the same engines that Caterpillar depends on for their products. No other engine brand can compare to the long life, aftermarket support, and warranty of a Perkins/Caterpillar engine.


The Dynagen TG350 or TG410 (optional) controller used here offers superior generator protection and control over all others. Sure it cost a bit more but, there are no dummy lights or confusing messages. When you need to know what is going on, DynaGen TG series controllers show it in simple easy to understand words, not codes or confusing symbols.
