Would this be a good choice for a John Deere 2320 which the manual states produces 18 HP at the PTO and a total of 24 HP at the engine [crank]?
Kirby

Answer
Thank you for your inquiry....

Unfortunately this generator is too large for your tractor. The proper sizing of a tractor to a PTO generator is 1000 watts for every 2 PTO HP. With your unit having 18 HP at the PTO the largest generator you could go with would be 9kW (9000 watts).

Your tractor does not produce enough power output to the PTO generator for it to produce the proper wattage or the proper Hz/Voltage and if connected to your unit you could damage the PTO generator and the equipment you are connecting it to.

Our smallest unit is a 10kW by IMD and with it being borderline with your tractor output we recommend that you contact IMD to confirm it would work.

IMD - (864) 968-0858

Models - PTO 10-2S & PTO 10-2S AVR

I have a old farmall 230 farm tractor will it drive this generator?
Don Wackerle 
from Michigan 
May 11, 2013
Answer
PTO generator sizing is based on the HP at the PTO and can be calculated using the following....

1000 watts for every 2 PTO HP.

Any problems using this exposed to the weather? Not all the time, just during power outages when it will probably be raining or snowing.

Answer
Per the owner's manual these units are not to be run in rain or snow.

I have ordered the 12/15 Kw voltmaster pto generator from your online store, unfortunately the factory has a back order problem with parts so not sure when I will receive the generator, but would like to know what plug types I will need to hook up when I receive it. Thanks, Joe

Bought a voltmaster pto15/12 generator with a 50 amp plug and a reliance transfer switch. The reliance switch came with a 50 plug with 3 prongs. It says it needs a CS6365 power cord plug type. Do you have cords to connect generator to plug in wall in garage.
Bryan 
from Connecticut 
April 05, 2012
Answer
The following cord has the correct connections to connect the generator to the Reliance Switch.

Gen-Tran 50A 25ft Cord

This cord has the following ends.....

Some of your generators say tractor horsepower and some say PTO HP which is it? I have a 35hp tractor with a 25hp PTO what is the biggest gen I could have hooked up to it?
Rob Bridges 
from Illinois 
January 31, 2011
Answer
The HP rating is based on the PTO HP and when looking at your PTO HP output the estimated generator size is based on the following: 1000 watts for every 2 PTO HP so for your 25HP PTO you can use a maximum 12,500 watt generator.
