A Diesel Gen-Set With Plenty Of Juice

When it comes to auxiliary power, diesel gensets have a lot going for them. They’re safe to operate and have lower average fuel consumption rates than their gasoline counterparts. Next Generation Power’s 5.5 kW model has plenty of juice to run two air conditioning units and more, yet averages just 2/10 gph fuel consumption.

A 12-hp, EPA-compliant, Kubota Z482 engine is the brawn behind Next Gen’s UCM 2-5.5 genset, which delivers 5,500 watts of power at either 120V or 120/240V. It runs at 2,800 rpm to maximize lifespan, and is far quieter than typical 3,600-rpm gensets.

The UCM 2-5.5 is 25.5 inches long by 20 inches wide by 22 inches high with enclosure and starts at $7,185.
