Q: Is this generator California emissons compliant? Is there another diesel generator with about this capacity that's lighter (man lift issue)?

by Steven Jones from California on May 30, 2012

A: The HATZ diesel engine Baldor uses in the DG3E and DG6E are EPA 2, CARB 2, and ECE-R24 compliant.

It Makes Me Money
I am the operator of a small generator shop and have an inventory of portable gas and diesel generators. In order to use a generator in a public space, the municipal code mandates a diesel fuel source. Year after year I rent this little 3000 out to community picnics or home owners who need something that just always runs. Sure its heavy and noisy like a diesel should be, but its built like that brick house pig number 3 took to the wolf. If you need a machine, not a toy, I would recommend it.
Pros: Durable, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: Heavy
