8,000 Watt Diesel Generator

HOME Generator

Diesel Home Generators from AURORA are quieter, longer-lasting, and the most reliable type of generator you can own. Perkins engines power AURORA Generators. These are the same engines Caterpillar depends on to power their equipment. Nothing else is as reliable, longer-lasting, or cost as little to operate and maintain.

Engine

Perkins 15.3 HP | 3 Cylinder | Diesel

The Perkins 403 range of electric power (EP) engines delivers the same compact benefits of its 2 cylinder stablemate, but takes a stride forward in terms of noise, refinement and power. The 3 cylinder range offers excellent power density and superb fuel economy and is designed to meet your power generation needs where extreme conditions are likely, and higher regulated territories with more stringent emissions standards.

DynaGen TG350

GENERATOR CONTROLLER

DynaGen controllers make using your generator easy. Place it to Automatic or manually turn your generator on and off with the push of one button. The display provides easy to read generator instrumentation. An event log keeps track of operation and can be set to alert you when it is time to change the oil.

 

The DynaGen "tough" series controllers are intended to operate even in harsh conditions, without fail. Simple two wire start makes them compatible with any standard transfer switch or remote starting system.

CONSTRUCTION

Base Frame

Generators built on sturdy frames last longer. Our steel structures are powder coated to increase corrosion resistance and use vibration isolators to support the generator. By eliminating vibrations from being transferred to the ground, generators run quieter!


The frame is assembled using all stainless steel fasteners and also supports the battery tray and generator control panel.

FUEL TANK

Steel Welded 12 Gallon Tank

Just add fuel - There is a fuel tank built-into the bottom of the generator. You can easily tell how much fuel is in it by looking at the gauge on the tank; however, the generator controller also monitors the fuel level and shows you on display. It can even alert you when it is getting low and needs refilling. The tank is large enough to run the generator for a full day. Larger fuel tanks are also available.

Weather Enclosure

Steel Canopy Enclsoure - Optional

The canopy enclosure is designed to keep the generator secure and help protect it from the weather outside. Since the engine is a slow turning diesel, it's naturally quieter than gas units and even more so with the steel canopy enclosing it. Two large removable panels make accessing the generator inside easy. When not in use, the latches lock to keep it all safe and secure. No tools are needed.

The enclosure is steel and galvanized. It has been powder coated to help protect it from corrosion. Should it ever need to be removed, it is assembled using stainless steel hardware.

50 Gallon Fuel Tank

Sub-Base Diesel Tank

For extended run-time and safer fuel storage, this 50-gallon tank is a popular choice for generators under 25 kW. It features a spill containment area for the generator and only adds 10" to its height. It replaces the existing internal day tank and generator frame with this all in one sub-base tank, making it a more cost-effective solution over traditional sub-base tanks. It is constructed out of steel and is powder-coated to resist corrision.
