Used Diesel Generators – Are They Worth It?
In today’s society, the need for power efficiency is at the top of everyones priority list. However, this does not mean getting the most power efficient generator should cost the earth (in an expense way and in an ecological sense).
You should be getting the most power efficient method possible for your budget. Can you achieve both from a used diesel generators?
We at The Power Depot think the answer is YES.
Petrol vs. Used Diesel Generators
Used diesel generators are more cost effective to run when compared to petrol generators. They are more environmentally friendly due to being reconditioned to the highest quality. This means the used diesel generator will be running at its maximum efficiency and producing fewer emissions just like new diesel generator but without the price tag!
Diesel generators don’t have to work as hard as a petrol generator to produce the same output either making sure you get the most out of your fuel.
Power Vs Price
Brand new diesel generators can be towards the most expensive end of the spectrum. When customers are considering buying a generator budget constraints can often lead to making the wrong choice. However, a used diesel generator is significantly lower in price. This is both in price when buying and in cost to run. On average it costs between 30% and 50% less to maintain a diesel generator than a petrol generator after your purchase.
In our opinion, used diesel generators are too often mistaken for being lower in value, however, if refurbished right, they are just as cost effective (if not more) than new generators.
Get What You Want
Another benefit of using a used diesel generator is that they can actually be customised to suit your exact needs. This can include everything from the size, purpose and even colour of the used diesel generator!
All used generators should be refurbished and tested to the highest quality before the sale. If refurbished properly you will end up with a perfect generator that suits your specific needs AND end up paying less than expected for your used diesel generator.
