    I reckon I could find an axle to put under it. The weight then would be around 6500 lbs. You won't set any land speed records towing it:rolleyes:

    Should work for your cell phone, unless you have a bag phone from the '80's, then it may not have enough juice :D

    PS I found and bought a loader. I could use a motor grader though!!

    Generator

    Ive been looking for one to put in the bed of my truck to power my camper..this one is a tad overkill...but reading this post reminds me of a couple weeks ago I did see a couple SUV's towing big bad generators on trailers..they looked like milsurp maybe out of Fort Campbell KY

    If you are frugal with your consumption this should power 3 homes. If you have electric heat, hot water, dryer, arc welder and a 7HP compressor running at the same time, it will only power 1.5 homes.

    $3000 price still valid

    That price still seems a bit high to me. I just went and looked at a 30KW diesel with less hours and a bit newer for less than what you're asking for this, and it was also a heavy industrial unit....

    I don't know how much "heavier" you can get but this is not a light duty set up!
    Diesel gensets have fuel storage issues, but are good units. If you go with the 30KW diesel make sure you have it loaded at a 70% or more draw. Otherwise carbon from the exhaust will get pulled back into the oil. Carbon in the oil and on your bearings will make for short engine life.
    If I'm high - throw me an offer.

    That certainly is a nice unit. No electronic voltage regulators etc. which is a plus. I'm not too familiar with that engine, are parts still available for it?? I've been around lots of diesels powering various equipment, none of them have a 70% load, and some of the ones on the drilling rigs have more idle time, light loads on the cable rigs and we've never had a carbon problem. I have seen it though on some of the very old diesel engines but those were antiques...

    I have the twin brother to that unit. My Dad does actually. We were a dairy farm before switching to strawberries, x-mas trees, and so on. Ours runs on gasoline. Has only 45 hours on it!! We're at the end of the line so we used it during power outages to keep our milk cold. Now that we're no longer a dairy farm we just use it to keep our shop functional during power outages. It is wired to our barn, shop, main house, and employee apartment. When we run it, we try to turn about everything on. The more we turn on, the better it runs. We can weld fantastically while under gen power. Better than under public power. We've halfheartedly been looking for another one of these units to run my house and my sugarhouse (maple syrup operation with oil fired evaporator that needs electricity) which are both located across the road from the main farm. Otherwise we'd pipe em into our existing unit. Although we're located in NH, for the right price, we'd consider a road trip after the salt is off all the roads

    My guess is that it would be cheaper to put it on a truck and ship it rather than to make a round trip from NH. Although, if you are coming to visit Yellowstone anyway ;-) --.
    Where in NH are you?? I spent some time in Portsmouth and Hampton Beach when I was in the Navy. Had a good friend in West Lebanon (moved to AZ) and I got married in Woodstock VT.

    If the diesels are higher RPM's engines (1800-2500), there won't be a carbon issue. However, you will burn more fuel. Idling a diesel is about the worst thing you can do to it. I know EVERYBODY does it, but that is where you get the carbon build up in the oil.

    PS. If you change the carb and make a few other minor tweeks this will run on gasoline too.
