That’s exciting, but it’s also a decision you’ll need to consider from several different angles. You’ve probably already made a list of requirements and put together a budget.

What Makes or Breaks an Engine Overhaul?
What Makes or Breaks an Engine Overhaul?Modern machinery is an amazing thing. With thousands of years of experience in engineering behind us, we can mold a relatively small amount of metal into an amazing volume of horsepower and put it to specific uses. Not only that, but we can run our devices for hundreds of thousands of miles and expect them to work reliably. However, even the most carefully designed and constructed machinery is going to need serious attention at some point. You can prolong the life of a heavy diesel engine, generator, or marine power unit with careful maintenance, but eventually you’re going to be looking at an overhaul. Otherwise the wear and tear on pistons and other moving parts could render your engines unreliable. Anyone who has worked in a business that requires heavy machinery knows that budgeting time and...

How Important Is Generator Size?
How Important Is Generator Size?If you’re shopping for a new industrial generator, there are a number of factors to consider. One of these is size—sizing your generator properly is essential for ensuring that your business can continue without disruption during a power outage. If your generator has too small of a capacity, it won’t be able to keep up with your power requirements, so you’ve invested all this money into a system that won’t be able to perform the way you need it to. Properly sizing your generator can help you avoid the following issues:
Capacity OverloadThe amount of power that a generator can deliver is rated in watts. Continuously operating the generator at or above this capacity will soon cause the system to overload. Overloading the unit can make it deteriorate very quickly. Signs that your system may be overloaded include:
- Loud noises coming from...
