Whether you are looking
for backup power for emergencies or need to power an off-grid cabin, this
generator set is for you. This unit combines the rugged and dependable “TFDW”
style 1800 rpm generator head with a bullet proof diesel engine. This unit is
designed to last for years and to be easily repairable in the field with basic
tools. It is built to ISO2000 quality control specifications. You can even run
this unit on new or waste veggie oil (WVO) with some slight adaptations to
pre-warm the fuel.
Designed to be reliable
by using the “Keep It Simple” principle.
TFDW generator heads
are the next step up from our popular ST generator heads. They are of a
brushless design, are designed to last and to be easy to repair. We order these heads with Japanese made
high quality NSK front and rear sealed bearings. This is the generator head
style we recommend to all our commercial
This is not your
typical consumer generator head that screams along at 3600 rpm. The TFDW units
run at a comfortable 1800 rpm. This fact alone accounts for a huge increase in
service life. The integral cooling fan is made of metal, unlike the fragile
plastic fans found in most generator heads.
For more information, do
a Google search on “TFDW Generator Head”.
The diesel engine uses
much less fuel than a gasoline unit. In addition, diesel fuel will not go stale
and turn to varnish like gasoline. There is nothing like trying to start a gas
engine that has sat in the garage for a year! You can buy “off-road diesel” for
use in this generator. This lets you avoid the road tax. In addition, you can
run waste veggie oil (WVO) from your local restaurant by adding a simple fuel
heating mechanism. Run your generator for free! This is not just theory; many
folks are doing using this type of fuel to reduce running costs. Do a Google
search on “WVO Diesel” and you will see what I mean.
Cooling – This unit
uses a closed circuit water filled radiator design similar to that found in a
diesel truck. The radiator is mounted on the generator frame, not the engine, to
isolate it from engine vibrations.
The engine is a Chinese
built clone of a Cummins diesel. Any diesel mechanic will be familiar with this
design. It is in used throughout the world in literally millions of
A safety system is
built into the generator set that will automatically shut down the engine if it
senses WATER OVER TEMPERATURE
, OIL OVER TEMPERATURE ,
LOW OIL PRESSURE or RPM OVER SPEED .
All towable units are equipped with a 50 gallon base tank. This
is capable of running the unit for about 24+ hours at 100% capacity. This unit
will burn approximately .08 gallons of fuel per hour for each kilowatt of power
output produced. Running a 15KW load will use about 1.2
gallons per hour. This would produce a run time of about 41 hours. A 24KW load would produce a run time of
about 26 hours. If you need more run
time, it is quite easy to attach a larger external tank. We can supply
3rd party tanks of up to 1500 gallons in
This engine is
manufactured by multiple entities for multiple products and users. If
you do a Google search on +4100D +diesel, you will find numerous sites that
mention this engine. When I tried it, I found 572 sites. Parts are
available from many sources. Same story for the ST type generator heads.
Of course, we can also provide parts.
