    Diesel Generator, noisy but fuel efficient 2KW 2000W, 8am 250V

    Hi we have a diesel generator that has been in the group since the late 90's and to be honest wasnt new then.. However it runs well and has powered: Discos', Event illuminations, radio and phone charging, Camps, MiG welding, water pumps... you name it.
    However we havent really used it for about 8-9 years since getting a couple of suitcase style generators and it is just taking up space.
    possibly a Petter AD1 Diesel Generator,

    handle start rather than recoil, starts instantly from cold with simple technique,add 4cc diesel toprime or or oil to primer, using it's de compressor lever & start instantly every time, once run- luke warm (I will demonstrate).
    Delivers very stable 240 Volts for all mains appliances (lights chargers small heaters grinders TV's etc) plus 110 Volt for tradesman's tools. Ideal for Emergency Power farms builders DIY, can be run on a long extension or in an open shed-garage to drop noise as all diesel models are noisy.

    looking for about 200

    Hi Dave,

    Where in the country are you?

    Wouldn't want something that noisy at camp, but would be good at some of the events we do.

    It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves

    Can you PM me an email address or phone number please?

    I'm down in Bristol, but travel up to Leicester fairly frequently so could potentially arrange to come and have a look
