What to Consider Before Buying A Diesel Generator

 Diesel Generator Buying Guide

Diesel generators are the most popular power source for backup power solutions, industrial applications, and remote sites that don't have access to the electrical grid. These machines are powerful, efficient, and reliable. However, before buying a diesel generator, there are a few things to consider to ensure that you get the right one for your needs.


Power Output

One of the most important factors to consider before buying a diesel generator is the power output. You need to determine how much power you need to operate your appliances, tools, or machines. The power output of diesel generators is measured in kilowatts (kW). The larger the generator's engine, the higher the power output.


For example, if you want to power your home during a power outage, you might need a generator with a power output of 10 kW to 20 kW. However, if you want to power an industrial site or construction project, you might need a generator with a power output of 50 kW to 200 kW or more.


Fuel Efficiency

Diesel generators are more fuel-efficient than gasoline generators. They burn less fuel per hour, which makes them cheaper to operate over the long term. When shopping for a diesel generator, you should look for one with a high fuel efficiency rating. This will save you money on fuel costs and reduce the generator's carbon footprint.


Noise Level

Another factor to consider before buying a diesel generator is the noise level. Generators can be loud, and you don't want to disturb your neighbors or employees. You should look for a generator with a noise level of around 60 decibels (dB) or less. This is about the same noise level as a normal conversation.


Portability

Diesel generators come in different sizes, and some are more portable than others. If you need to move your generator frequently, you should look for one with wheels or a handle for easy transportation. However, if you need a generator for a fixed location, a larger, stationary generator might be a better option.


Maintenance

Like any machine, diesel generators require regular maintenance to ensure that they operate efficiently and last a long time. Before buying a generator, you should research the maintenance requirements and costs. You should also look for a generator with features that make maintenance easier, such as easy-to-replace filters and oil drains.


Brand Reputation

The brand reputation of the generator manufacturer is also an important consideration. You should look for a brand that has a good reputation for quality, reliability, and customer support. Some of the most reputable diesel generator brands include Caterpillar, Cummins, Kohler, and Generac. 

Some of the famous brands of diesel generator are:

Caterpillar

Cummins

Kohler

Generac

MTU Onsite Energy

Yanmar

Wartsila

Atlas Copco

Perkins

Mitsubishi Electric


Price

The price of diesel generators can vary widely depending on the power output, features, and brand. Before buying a generator, you should set a budget and compare prices from different manufacturers. You should also consider the long-term costs, such as fuel consumption and maintenance, when calculating the total cost of ownership.


Conclusion

Buying a diesel generator is a significant investment, and it's important to choose the right one for your needs. You should consider factors such as power output, fuel efficiency, noise level, portability, maintenance requirements, brand reputation, and price before making a decision. By doing your research and comparing different models, you can find a diesel generator that meets your power needs and budget while providing reliable backup power or reliable electricity to remote sites.
