Before choosing a generator, the first thing you must understand is how differently Military and consumer manufacturers rate the output of their generators. The Military ratings are extremely under rated while consumer generators are typically extremely over rated. For a detailed explanation of how these figures are derived and a better understanding of how you can determine the best fit for your application, please visit the Output Ratings page. In most cases, the generator you think you need will be larger than necessary when considering one of our refurbished Military generators in the same output range.
These MEP series generators are ideal for home owners, tradesmen and business owners alike. Whether your looking for standby power for home, primary power for a remote camp or site power as a trademan, the MEP-002a and MEP-003a are ideal units. All of our models can operate in either single or three phase modes with the turn of a knob. Engineered for the tribulations of battle, these generators are extremely over-built and designed to run 24x7 in any weather. All framing, the fuel tank, output and control box, battery trays, etc are all made of aluminum leaving very little to left to rust. If noise is a primary concern, consider a model with an acoustic supression kit, reducing the noise by nearly 17dB making them very suitable for residential installations. These generators feature 1800RPM Onan Diesel engines which typically exceed 15,000 hours before requiring major engine work; most of ours units have around 1000 hours. All of our generators are in very good cosmetic condition and perfect working order. We even load test them. Our surplus military generators are far superior to anything you can buy commercially in the same price range. To find out more, check out our Why Surplus? page.
