    really no one has the Voltmaster genny? Price looks good, American Made, and looks of high quality.

    I like all the bells and whistles on the Harbor Freight 15KW but I am Leary of all that stuff failing since it is Harbor Freight.

    Then there is the debate of Brushless vs Brush? I only plan on using it for emergencies currently and wonder. If it would be a big deal.
    I have a JD 3720 and run a 15Kw PTO generator. It is pretty much "set and forget" once everything is warmed up. Even the well submersible pump kicking on will not significantly change the frequency. I believe the tractor's governer is dealer-serviceable to provide better speed control if you have trouble. Pretty sure I remember someone adding that to a Generator thread a couple years ago.

    Mine's a Power Connection set: The Power Connection, Inc. - Generator solutions for home and agriculture


    I have no comment on the brushes issue, except that most of what you see today for sale has no brushes, instead they use slip rings like your car alternator to energize the rotor windings.

    I'm starting to lean toward just ordering the brush designed model from Rural King. For about $1300 total investment you get the shipping, pto shaft, 3pt carrier and the genny. Hard to beat for someone just looking to use it for emergencies and not much more than once every 10 years if ever. More of an insurance policy.

    Can a PTO genny just sit on the shelf out of the elements and not need any maintenance as long as it isn't used?

    A little update on my Rural King 15kw generator posts:

    The hitch pins were a dual Class 1 and Class 2 category. The pto shaft is extremely short and hopefully an extender will allow it to work on my kubota L3400. Only a very small tractor could have that short of connection between shafts and considering the minimum hp rating is 25hp is kinda disappointing. The gearbox is also shipped dry but clearly tagged it needs fluid.

    Any Chance you could post some pictures of it and of it connected to the tractor?

    Now I have to get the hookup pieces to the electric panel. I plan on using an Interlock Device on a soon to be added 50 amp, 240V circuit. If anyone has advice or experince with the interlock device I would appreciate any comments.
    Look at the manual and see if it lists it as a brushless generator. Just curious as to whether it is or is not. Sounds like you got a great deal when considering free shipping. How long is the PTO shaft? Looks like the frame would work with a quick hitch too.
