This backup generator / standby generator makes an excellent home generator. Forget natural gas or propane. Diesel today produces far more power and cost far less to maintain.
Generators like this from Aurora make very little noise, no smoke and no visible exhaust.
We mounted on on a trailer for this video but normally it sits on the ground where it has a small foot print.
Unlike other generators, these ones are weather proof. You can take a garden house and soak it. They stay out in the rain and snow without a problem.
The generators are fully automatic and include a ATS. The fuel tank is also built in.
