Q: I am looking to use this 16kw as a whole house generator but want to feed the entire main panel rather than have to use a breaker by breaker conversion.

Do you have a simple devise that can enable the genset to be supplying power to the entire master breaker panel?

by Nicholas from Indiana on March 08, 2011

A: Depending on your main panel size we have 2 models which can be mounted between the meter and your main breaker which gives you managing control of your entire panel. See links below for 100A and 200A models.

Q: Will the IMD Pto16-SAVR - 16kw run an electric furnace that uses a 60 amp breaker? The furnace pulls about 45 amps upon start up but then falls and runs about 32 amps continuous. I also have an electric water heater that says it pulls 3600 watts while running. I'm trying to get a tractor drive generator to run my house as well as my water well. At the moment I have a 12kw 3 phase unit I have rewired for 220volts but it is not sufficient enough to even completely start the furnace alone. The heating element will get hot but the fan can't kick in... Thanks for the help.
by Chase Ward from Kansas on January 19, 2011

A: Generator sizing is based on the starting amperage load of the equipment you are running. To calculate the wattage the formula - Starting Amps x Volts = Watts will assist you in calculating the correct wattage need. When looking at your starting amps on the furnace you are needing 10,800 watts plus the 3600 watts from your water heater puts you at 14,400 watts not including your well pump and home items. Rule of thumb is to size the generator to 80% of its capacity so when an item does kick in you have plenty of power available for flexibility and the voltage stays clean.Also, converting your 3-phase unit to 1-phase you lost approximately 30% of your kW (on most alternators, some are a little more and some a little less). We do recommend that you step up to the 22kW model so you have plenty of power available provided your tractor is large enough. Minimum tractor size 41 PTO HP.

Nice Machine, Unique Learning Experience. Egd So-so......
First let me say that I am knew to tractor ownership and the idea of using it for power generation interested me. I have a new Kubota B3300SU for my small farm here in hurricane country.

First mistake was thinking PTO HP and tractor PTO HP were the same. So now I have a generator that will put out about 13kw vs. the 16kw I thought. It should still be fine for my use. The other thing was that the PTO shaft sold here from IMD has an unknown length. I found out it was able to be cut down to... more
