Everything you need to know about hiring a generator
A generator is a critical piece of equipment when you don’t have mains electricity connected on your property/building site and need power. Since buying a generator can be expensive and wasteful if you only need one for a short time, it is much more practical to hire one.
Before hiring a generator, there are a few things to consider:
- Fuel: generators run on diesel or petrol. Diesel generators use less fuel and the fuels is also safer to store, however petrol generators are more widely available
- Size: there are a vast amount of generators available for hire in sizes ranging from 10kva to 500+kva. This will generally dictate the physical size of the item too
- Site: if the generator needs to be moved around the site, some generators may be too unwieldy
