Electric Generators Direct Recommended

If your power application is going to involve many hours of operation OR if diesel fuel is your only fuel source option then a diesel powered generator set is best for you.

A diesel powered generator requires a little more attention to operate and maintain versus a gasoline powered generator. But if you are going to need power for several hours at a time, we feel this is the only way to go.

Diesel engines must be operated over 25% of the rated electrical load whenever the engine is... more

Happy But Some Shortcomings

A couple days later I got the wheels and handles. Fortunately I had a fork lift and lifted it up off the pallet and installed the wheels and stand plus the handles. The handles fold down but the ones that attach to the tubing and latch in extended position are much better.... more
Pros: Durable, Features, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive, For Some Reason Diesels Cost 5-6 Times More I Felt Gouged

Richard,
Under the operating portion of the manual, it explains about the switch. You select based on the outlets you're using. 120V or 120/240V.

"Excellent except nobody knew how that 120v/off/120-240V rocker switch worked. Not even Generac. Also nobody was sure about the battery type and capacity/cold cranking amps which is important with winter starting diesels. Not even Generac."
