Things to Check Before You Buy – Used Generators………8 Nov 2017
Check before you buy.
When buying a used generator just like buying a used car, you need to be confident that you’re not going to finish up with an expensive problem.
You should always check the number of hours it has run.
That the generator has been serviced according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Just like a used car, can you be sure that the running hours stated on the control panel are genuine, that the service records are accurate and that the important filters and lubricants are correct?
Sometimes it is just not possible to obtain the right information and that is why the buyer should be mindful of who the seller is.
Once you are confident that you can trust the information, buying a used generator can be a very efficient way of reducing capital outlay if your application is for standby power.
