8,000 Watt Diesel Generator

Powered by Perkins


Perkins Powered Diesel Generator

Perkins built the worlds first high-speed engine in 1932.  Today, they are a subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc and the worlds leading supplier of diesel engines.  The two-cylinder diesel engine used in this small generator is as robust as any other larger or slower unit and even has the same engine life warranty.  The benefits of this one, however, is the lower fuel consumption and small compact size.   It is guaranteed to outperform all other Propane, Natural Gas and Gasoline powered generators many times over.

Operation and Maintenance Manual



Aurora industrial class alternators are highly reliable and produce clean, stable power even in harsh conditions. Automatic Voltage Regulated to 0.5% precision. The alternator is brushless and requires no maintenance. The generator head is directly driven by a heavy engine flywheel. The large rotating mass helps to reduce fluctuations in power when heavy loads are applied.
