Congratulations, you’ve done your research and concluded that a diesel generator is right for you. You already know that this decision will result in the need for a smaller engine than a natural gas generator requires, thereby lowering your acquisition cost. You also know that you’ll enjoy a long lifespan with a diesel generator (upwards of 20,000 hours, prior to an overhaul) lower maintenance costs, greater fuel efficiency and faster response time. Before you pat yourself on the back, however, there are some steps you should take to ensure the diesel generator you are purchasing is the right one for your particular needs. The following is a buyer’s procedural for a diesel generator purchase. Ask yourself these important questions before making a diesel generator investment.[More]

Aaron Equipment Installs Back-up Generator Set at Bensenville HQ

by AaronEquipmentCo10. April 2009 14:10
  Just completed earlier this year, we installed a used Cummins 200kW backup generator set.  Last summer we had a power outage over a 3 day period.  With over 50 employees and no power we were basically out of business for those 3 days.  No computers, no phone system, no air-conditioning, no lights etc.  Imagine that happening to your business?  Within about 3 hours after the outage we were able to get the office up and running by temporarily hooking up a generator set that we had on hand.  After the outage we realized that even those 3 hours lost were critical and we began planning on installing a permanent back-up.  Now if there is a brown out or power outage we are back up in 10 seconds or less.  It has certainly given us peace of mind. Take a look at our generators we have in stock to see how we can help you set up a similar emergency generator plan.
