Tips for Buying a Used Portable Generator in Tasmania

Just as you would if you were to purchase any other second-hand item, there are some factors you should be aware of before you purchase a used generator. Here, Diesel Generation Australia explains what to look for. If you need more guidance, feel free to contact our team.

1. Check the Usage

Whether you’re buying a portable generator or a 10 KVA generator, one of the first things to do when buying a used generator is to check the run time. Just like cars, most generators are fitted with an odometer which tells you how many hours the generator has been used. If a generator has been used as the primary source of power, it will typically have much higher usage than a generator that was used as a back-up or for standby power. 

2. Ensure it’s a Reliable Manufacturer

When you’re looking for a used diesel generator for sale, it’s important to purchase a generator from a reliable brand. A quick online search of the 10 KVA generator you’re looking to buy will usually provide you with enough information about the manufacturer. You should be aware of any manufacturing errors or quirks that come with the generator to help you make an informed decision regarding your purchase. 

3. Buy from a Trusted Supplier

Our final piece of advice when it comes to buying used diesel generators is to buy your generator from a trusted supplier. A supplier who has experience and a solid track record selling used generators provides you with peace of mind when making your second-hand purchase.
