The Pro Series Diesel 5,500/7,000-Watt Generator is ideal at the job site to power tools and equipment. Its equipped with two 120-Volt outlets, a 120-Volt twist lock outlet, a 120/240-Volt outlet and a 12-Volt DC terminal for battery charging. With a full load of 5,500 running watt and 7,000 surge watt this generator can run for up to 7 hours and runs on readily available diesel fuel. The Automatic-Voltage Regulator controls power output so tools wont be damaged by power fluctuations. This unit is designed for Pros with features like an eye hook to hang from cranes and scaffolding, and is engineered to run for long periods without too much noise or overheating. Engine noise level is less than 70 db, quite enough to work around all day long. Its also easy to maneuver with the four installed wheels. Other pro features such as an automatic low oil shutdown, heavy duty housing and electric start feature make it ideal for contractors. A lawn tractor battery (not included) must be installed to use the generator's electric start feature. Consider using a riding lawnmower battery with a minimum of 360 CCA (Cold Cranking Amps). The Unit requires 58 ounces 15W-40 Diesel Grade Oil to operate.

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by NOT HAPPY Purchased but not used right away, had to find a battery to fit. When it worked it worked great. Within 40 days of purchase and very little use, the outlets no longer worked and fuel is leaking somewhere. Waited another two weeks of trying to reach someone that can tell us where to take it for warranty work, and when we dropped it off (not very easy given the weight) they said that shipping parts are not always covered under warranty and had to provide a deposit. Really? You made the defective machine. Waiting now to see if they can fix it. Use your machine within the 30 days return policy for the store, that way they can deal with the manufacturer if it breaks. Hope I get it back before summer is over, the whole reason for buying it in the first place. July 23, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by new, will not start ! Lots of good points but the big strike against this is that mine will NOT even puff or fire AT ALL. Only ran it three times and at first it was o.k., but did smoke a LOT until warmed up. It is dead today, even after 2 hours on the line with ''help line'' doing all sorts of experiments that I hoped to AVOID with a NEW unit ! To make it worse, the first one arrived DAMAGED by the shipper September 4, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nothing quiet or silent about this generator I bought three of this generator to be used outside the US for its supposedly quiet property. The noise from these generator was deafening. I will not recommend it if you are looking for something quiet. It was a total disappointment and a waste of time and money for me. The noise and vibration will put an earthquake to shame. At this rate of vibration the durability is highly questionable. September 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Expesnive but Worth it I've been very pleased with this Deisel generator; its ideal for my concrete forming crew who use it daily for several months now. We like that it's rugged and doesn't sound too loud. Also like the GFCI outlet, push button start and the low oil "idiot" light. June 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent value Best price on a diesel generator on the market. Very pleased with the delivery time, the instructions were good, setup very quickly and was running in a matter of minutes. Been in the field for about 60 hrs with no issues. very pleased with purchase September 19, 2011
