    Default Do you have the Harbor Freight 15KW PTO Generator? What do you think?

    After the dust has settled from the widespread storm related power outage I am thinking of adding a PTO generator to the fleet. The best deal for the dollar appears to be the HF 15KW PTO generator. My questions to the TBN Brain-trust are: Do you have one or have experience with one? What are your opinions on the unit? Would you buy one again? Do you know of a better option on PTO Generators?

    I purchased the identical unit from Rural king online and am very pleased with it. It was also a couple hundred cheaper than HF.

    Good question Randall - never seen one at Cross Lanes, is it one of those by order only items? After that storm I have to admit I am thinking of making some changes around the house for the "next one"

    Yes it is a order only only item. I have been looking for a coupon that will work online but no go so far. I met the demand with my little diesel generator but I have an old 4KW Coleman gas generator. I want my back up to be diesel fuel based. I found that I could get diesel even when the stations were out of gas. How long were you out of power?

    We were down for the entire week. Funny you mentioned the diesel generator, I been starting to look for a diesel version myself. I had about 25 gallons of diesel when the storm hit and about 5 gallons of gas - I only have a gas generator so that didn't help a whole lot.
    Check out the "Entertainment book" if someone has one, they always have one of the 20% coupons in it. I would send you one but I already used them - we really spend too much time at Harbor Freight....

    I had a 20% of coupon and the fine print said it could not be used on generators(wouldn't you know it).

    I had 60 gallons of diesel with what I had in jugs and the truck. I finished cleaning out some 35 gallon poly drums and bought a 12V fuel pump. I used about 65 gallons of diesel in little air cooled generator running for about 200 hours +-. I want to keep about 100+ gallons of diesel on hand.

    So no more thoughts or opinions on the HF 15KW generator?

    On the subject of PTO generators can one run a generator too large for the tractor (say a 30KW on a 30 HP tractor) as long as they did not demand more than 15KW out of the generator?

    I know it takes at least 2 HP per KW of output.

    thanks.
