Haven't used one, but my buddy put one into his business and over the years, he had more problems that any generator I have ever seen.Have anybody of you used that type of generator ? Good or bad on use ? Thinking about the price of gas against gasoil or gasoline it should be something ?
Not here, but in the FL Hurricane Zone, I had a 16kw Generac propane whole-house genset that ran flawlessly for years. It used .7gal an hour at full power.Maybe the way to do this is to ask for anyone who is now using a propane generator in this country.
Then find out what they have, how long they have had it, what advantages and disadvantages they have noticed in the time of ownership, etc.
If you find that virtually nobody uses them, there must be a good reason.
if you find that lots of folks have them and are satisfied then proceed with the plan.
In other words, don't be the guinea pig.
Find out from those who took the chance, and make your decision accordingly.
That certainly is useful input, but I hesitate to go by that.Not here, but in the FL Hurricane Zone, I had a 16kw Generac propane whole-house genset that ran flawlessly for years. It used .7gal an hour at full power.
I understand. The genset I mention is totally self contained in a big metal box. The transfer switch is included. All that was necessary is to attach an LPG tank (I had 2 buried 220gal tanks with a valve between them) and install the transfer switch to the main circuit breaker box, and you're in business. I did most of the install myself, so even a blind monkey could do it. The manuals included are excellent.That certainly is useful input, but I hesitate to go by that.
Sometimes the DR is like the Twilight Zone, and things don't quite work the same as elsewhere, like rechargeable power tools, that are ever so popular and reliable in the US, yet seem to be constantly screwed up, here in the DR.
Makes sense.Rocky, that was my whole idea to ask if someone here is using it and how much it would cost to use it with LPG . Now we have 6 kW Kubota diesel broken and need to deside what to do next
