Need a reliable generator for home backup? Looking for a generator you can count on to power trade jobs with ease? Or maybe you need a stationary generator to deliver prime power for a remote site? A 10kVA generator is a common size to get these jobs done.
But before you waste time sifting through reams of information on the web, take a look at our shortlist. We’ve put countless 10kVA generator models to the test and narrowed it down to the four best 10kVA generators on the market. (You can thank us later!)
When it comes to home or small business backup, Generac has come up trumps again with a brand new model for 2016: the Generac HSG10KVA Evolution. The generator is designed to be permanently installed and connected to your premise’s natural gas or LPG supply. It comes with an automatic transfer switch, and a choice of 100 or 200 Amp non-service rated switches. So, when the switch senses a power outage, the generator will take over and keep your essential appliances running. Then, when the mains power returns, it switches back and the generator stops.
The generator has an operating noise level of only 60 db(A), making it ideal for residential use. Other highlights include the TruePower Technology, which enables the generator to deliver clean power with less than 5% total harmonic distortion (perfect for powering sensitive electronics and appliances), and the OHVI engine, which is designed to power on no matter what. Not to mention a Generac Gas Generator for Home Backup comes with an All-Weather Steel Enclosure and is also able to withstand 150 mph winds.The 3-year Generac domestic warranty completes the package.
Crommelins generators ooze power and reliability – and this 10kVA genset is no exception. Powered by a Subaru industrial engine and housed in a heavy-duty welded steel frame, the generator provides an output of 8000w and and comes with easy electric start.
And if that isn’t everything you need for the worksite, you can always customise it further to meet your required industry standards. Plus, you get the peace of mind that it comes backed by a 2-year Crommelins warranty and a 3-year Subaru engine warranty. A tough machine designed for tough worksite and industrial environments.
With low noise level, the Pramac P11000 is the ideal automatic-start generator for use in residential areas or outside normal working hours. It’s equipped with an ever reliable Yanmar Diesel engine, first class components and complete instrumentation, including the AMF panel required for automatic power backup to mains power. The generator will automatically kick in and restore power to your home/small business when there is a mains blackout.
The water-cooled engine features an electric start to provide continuous output of 9000 watts. Add to this the long-run 24L fuel tank and it’s no wonder this generator is such a sort after diesel genset for residential and small business auto back-up power.
To complete the package, a 12-month warranty with a national service network has your backup power needs covered.
Not to be outdone by its single-phase counterparts, this three-phase diesel generator is a popular choice for commercial stationary standby power. It comes with all the reliability and robustness we’ve come to expect from Powerlink, with the added advantages of diesel economy.
