Powered by a Kubota diesel engine, this durable generator set produces 12.0 kilowatts of prime power output. The engine and generator are directly coupled and mounted on a rugged steel skid. All components are suitable for prime or intermittent usage. The entire set is thoroughly load tested prior to shipment. UL approved construction.

Standard engine

  • Kubota diesel model V1505-E3BG, in-line, four-cylinder engine
  • Mechanical speed governing provides > 5% speed regulation, no load to full load
  • EPA tier 4
  • Liquid cooled with industrial grade radiator and belt-driven blower fan

Controls & accessories

  • Key start panel with oil pressure, coolant temperature, hour meter, and glow plug indicator
  • Manual safety shutdow override, fuse protection
  • Safety shutdowns, energized-to-run, for low oil pressure/high coolant temperature
  • Four anti-vibration mounts between generator set and base frame
  • Electric fuel transfer and priming pump (12 VDC)
  • Battery cables for 12 VDC starting system
