Portable Generators are highly useful tools for homeowners and professionals alike. Homeowners use Portable Generators for powering outdoor projects and in emergency situations to keep essential appliances, like lights, heating, and refrigeration operational during power outages. Contractors rely on generators to keep job sites running smoothly, powering tools and equipment. Portable Generators are typically powered by gasoline but some models are powered by propane. Dual fuel generators give you the option of using your choice of either gasoline or propane. Consumers have a wide range of power outputs and features to choose from when selecting a portable generator. Generally, selecting the desired output power is the first consideration. What tools or appliances will it be powered, and where and how often it will be used.
Recoil and electric start options are available. Electric start offers the greatest convenience, allowing you to start the generator with a simple push of a button. Some even include a remote fob for remote starting. Another consideration is the number of outlets included, which varies from model to model. 120 Volt and 240 Volts outlets are commonly available. Extra features include carbon monoxide sensors, circuit breaker protection, hour meters, and volt meters. Some portable generators include wheel kits, featuring pneumatic wheels and handles to make moving from one location to another easy over any terrain. Wheel kits are also sold separately for generators that do not include wheel kits. Primadian Tool + Equipment carries a full selection of top-quality generators to meet every need and budget.
