What is a Diesel Generator?

Diesel generators use a diesel engine combined with a generator to act as an emergency power source. They are great in situations where there is no other available power source, such as a power outage or in a location that is off the grid. They are used in almost every industry, and are compatible with automotives, construction equipment and in industrial applications.

What Size Generator Should I Get?

Generators come in a range of different sizes. For home use, a portable diesel generator or a small diesel generator would be best suited. Simple household and personal use only require between 5 to 30 kilowatts as opposed to the larger sized industrial generators. A small diesel generator like DGA’s 5.9kVA Pramac P6000 makes minimal noise, and our 2.2kVA Yanmar GYD2000E is the perfect portable diesel generator if you’re working on a construction site.

Why Should I Buy a Diesel Generator for my Home?

Using a diesel generator as a backup power source might seem like something you would only need if something drastic happened, like a natural disaster. There are, however, any number of reasons that a power outage could happen, leaving you high and dry. Think extreme heat during summer leading to everyone cranking up the air con, leading to the grid being under huge pressure. With a diesel generator, you won’t have to worry about things like the food going off in your fridge, or a lack of heating causing you to freeze or lack of cooling just when you need it most. Having a generator in case of emergencies, means you can continue life as normal (and in comfort) if the power does go out.
