Generators create electrical current to run various devices. A typical generator runs on gasoline, propane or liquid natural gas and comes in one of three main varieties: welder generators, home generators, and portable generators.
Welder Generators Welder generators (also called job site generators) are an ideal generator for job sites because they are a single unit that has both a welder and a generator built into them, offering high power to power appliances, tools, and welding tools that require many amps to run. These generators also feature easy-starting systems for welders for convenience. Beyond welding equipment, welder generators also power many other types of electrical gear that may be on a job site. A welding generator delivers outstanding performance for building construction and can run lights to keep you safe while you weld in new construction job sites.
Portable GeneratorsPortable generators are a transportable power source because they have wheels for easy transport and portability. This portable power equipment delivers power to your home or jobsite when no utilities are available, so you can take your power with you whereever you go. Portable generators are also commonly used for recreational activities like hunting, tailgating, camping, fishing, and more.
Home GeneratorsHome generators (also called home generators) provide household power to a building or installation, but these models aren't portable. Home generators have durable covers to protect them from the elements while they power your home during an emergency. Your home generator runs on natural gas or other utility fuel so you don't need to refuel it, and it always works as long as the power outage lasts. Home generators are used so that you can be rest assured that your medical equipment, computers with valuable data, home appliances, and other critical devices remain powered no matter what kind of power interruption may arise.
Generator AccessoriesUseful generator accessories include items like cold-weather kits, fuel extenders and covers. Some models use optional wheel kits for smoother transportation. Like any equipment, your generator needs maintenance. Do your own maintenance with generators parts that include filters, spark plugs and similar replaceable components.
