By heading over to our Spare Parts page, you can view the parts which are deemed fit for re-use.

Why Purchase a Used Generator?

There are a few reasons to consider purchasing a used generator instead of a brand new generator. They are of course less expensive than new ones and this is usually because they are second hand. Some used generators may have had years of use before they come to us. Rest assured, no matter how old a generator is, we will always prepare it properly for re-use. We will always make sure it is fit for you and your company to use.

Some of the benefits of buying a used or second hand generator include:

  • Same Output – A used generator will still give the same output as a new generator, they have just had more use.
  • Budget – They are perfect for anyone looking to back up their electricity but are restricted to a budget.
  • High Quality – Even though these generators may have been used before, they are still high quality and are able to meet your needs and requirements.
  • Reliable – Our second hand generators are very reliable, regardless of the fact that they have been used before. We always make sure they are fit for re-use.
  • Great For A Backup – They can be utilised as a backup for your mains electricity.

How Do I Run A Generator Which Has Not been Used For A Long Time?

You need to check all of the parts of the device, to confirm that they’re in proper working condition, we recommend paying special attention to the carburetor. You need to clean it to ensure that the machine will operate smoothly. You should change the fuel, and the same applies to the spark plug as well. Check the level of the oil with the specially designed dipstick and add more if required.

Remember: Take the generator out in the open before you start it, this is a crucial safety measure.

Which appliances can I power with my used generator?

This will depend on the wattage of the device and of the appliances. It’s important to ensure that the total wattage of the appliances, which are powered with the use of the device, does not exceed its maximum wattage. If it does, the circuit breaker of the generator will stop it automatically. It’s always best to do the math well in advance to figure out which appliances you would want to use during a power cut and ensure that they can all be powered by the used generator.

Can I power my washing machine and dryer with my used generator?

Again, this will depend on the wattage of the used generator and of the washing machine and dryer. Most portable used generators don’t have the capacity to carry them due to the high wattage of washing machines and dryers. However, it may be possible to power one of them with a used portable generator.

Where should I store my used generator?

The place where you store your used generator should be perfectly dry and well ventilated, and must be as cool as possible. The used generator must be kept away from combustible materials, you can use the garage or basement of your house as long as they meet the requirements previously stated.

What type of oil does my used generator need?

You will have to check the specifications of the manufacturer to properly figure this one out. In general, when the temperature is above 40 degrees F, the recommended oil is 30-weight. When the temperature drops below this level, you should consider using 10W-30, which will keep the engine running properly when it is cold outside. It;s important that you pick a product which is of the highest quality and comes from a reputable brand. Keep a precise schedule for changing the oil based on the instructions which can be located in your owner’s manual.

Why isn’t my generator starting with propane?

This can be a common problem in models which can use both gas and propane. Usually, it comes up when the temperature falls below 40 degrees F. The most effective way to resolve it is to start running the device on gasoline first, then you can switch onto propane. More modern models can give you this option. In order to do this properly, you should follow the manufacturer’s instructions. If the used generator has been well maintained, you should have no issues with the switching.
