Buy Right Generator for Budget

Identify your requirements

What will you use the generator for? Are you going to use it to power heavy equipment or will you use it for emergency power for your home or business? For home or personal applications, a single phase power generator with 5kW to 30kW will suffice. For industrial applications or to power a large business, three phase power generators from 30 kW to 6 megawatts are recommended.

Research

Many well-known brands offer a comprehensive range of generator sets. To determine which one fits your requirements, do some research. Search the Internet for more information about each brand. Popular brands will most likely have their own websites or suppliers of these brands may have their available generators listed online. You can also check out product listing websites or forums and see what other users have said regarding a particular generator model. Doing some research can give you a better idea of a generator’s specification and price range.

New or used generators

After identifying your needs and doing your research, you can now decide whether to purchase a new generator or a second hand generator. The advantage of a new generator is that it comes with the standard manufacturer’s warranty. However, this warranty may not be cost effective for your intended purpose or budget. Depending on its terms, conditions and coverage period (1 or 2 years), the cost of the warranty will need to be considered with the cost of the generator unit. Also, some new generator models may require buyers to wait before they can acquire the unit because of limited availability.

Used generators usually do not come with a warranty, but the main advantage of purchasing a used generator is its much lower price. A buyer following a strict budget can save up to 50% or even more by purchasing a low-hour used generator instead of a new one. And since most brand manufactured generators are built for industrial strength and durability, the risk that a used generator will not last is often small. When possible, purchase a used generator that was only used for emergency or back-up power. A back-up generator was only used during a power outage or when the mains power supply was down and is likely to have minimal hours of usage.

When buying a used generator, consider purchasing from a trusted generator supplier as they conduct a thorough inspection and testing on any used equipment they sell so you can be sure that their used generator is still in excellent condition.
