I purchased this generator as backup power in case of a hurricane. I am tired of maintaining gasoline driven portable generators. Picked up generator in Melbourne, Florida store to save shipping charges. Two employees were very courteous and helped load generator in my truck. I fabricated a mount that fits my John Deere 2025r 19 PTO horsepower diesel tractor with iMatch hitch which makes a neat installation. I lower it on two pieces of stacked 4"x4" for stability when in operation. Generator runs smoothly and tests 120 volts with a voltmeter and a load of two 1500 watt electric heaters at 2700 engine rpm. It has not been tested under continuous operation, but I am confident I am prepared for a lengthy power outage.

Hard to find brush-less motor for one on a generator at this price point. Built very solid and even hocked oscilloscope to it and is a very pure sign wave. Which can also be noticed when running motors they sound smooth and not louder and rough (so to say). Been without power for several days (still without). This generator as not stopped and handles peak load of motor startup well. Is attached to a BX25D, crank to 3K RPM to match just above generator indicator and good to go!

Very pleased with my new PTO driven generator. I power it with a Kubota B7500, 17hp tractor. Now there's no worry during power outages. I run the generator on the "940" rpm setting and the tractor runs just above 1,200 engine rpm, which is fairly low. The diesel tractor will operate many more hours on one tank of fuel as opposed to filling up a gas driven generator every 8 to 10 hours. Once ordered the generator was delivered in about 5 days. The driver helped me load the generator into the tractor end loader all in all it was a great deal. I bought a metal utility cart and put a 3/4 inch plywood floor in it and bolted the generator through and through. Now I can pull it to any point on the farm and have enough power to run anything I need.

Ordered on Dec. 11th...received on Jan. 2nd. - within there estimated delivery time.
Phone calls and tracking were useless and non existent. I had to check the online account to see when it arrived at my local northern store. They never called me as stated in the ordering process.
Generator appears to be robust, clean, and well built. My kubota 2350 turns it with no issues. The generator is surprisingly quite.
The shipping box was undamaged, clean, and fit in the cargo area of my ford explorer
My tractor running at 2200 rpm's was able to place the volt meter exactly on the target line. I used a handheld meter to verify voltage and hertz...both were right on.
Overall I would recommend this generator. I have only tested the generator for 10 minutes, but feel that it will work as expected.

If you have a tractor, then forget the rest!!
A P.T.O. generator is the only way to go. Your already using and maintaining your diesel engine. Much cheaper. If I had to buy this generator with a diesel engine your looking at 6,7,8,k instead of 1k. I do not find the noise that loud when running at full power for the tractor. My John Deere, 24hp has no problems at all running this 14hp unit. I can even easily start an air compressor easily, easier than when I'm online with Hydro Quebec, really. Just keep the oil clean and start it once a month to keep it in good standing. Make sure it is properly secure, because when starting up it wants to twist because of the torque, and always start with no load and low rpm before you engage the pto switch.
I made a box to put on my 3ph, for field power if I need it and to be safe when operating. Try to keep your pto shaft as straight as possible to keep wear and tear of all components to a minimum. I used hemlock with nuts and bolts etc....to make it. The wheels on the bottom are only to roll around the garage(separate wheeled cart), when in use it is on the ground without the cart, more stable and can be put on any surface.
Enjoy and be safe.
I use it in the garage (detached from the house).
