How to Choose the Right Generator for Your Project

26 March 2018

Not all job sites are alike, and not all generators are suitable for all job sites. Therefore, if you’re looking to hire a generator, you will need to do some research to ensure that you choose the right one for your project. We provide you with some helpful insight below.

  • Fuel Source

    Choosing between an electric generator, a petrol generator and diesel generator should depend, at least to a certain extent, on the fuel source that you are already making use of to complete your project. This is because you will have plenty of that source on hand, thus making it more convenient and cost-effective to power your generator.

  • Wattage

    Each generator will have a different wattage. Before visiting a generator rental company, ensure that you know exactly what wattage you will require. Smaller portable generators tend to generate a lower wattage, so if your project requirements are higher on the spectrum, a more advanced and powerful diesel or electric generator might be a much better option.

  • Decibel Rating

    Did you know that it has been recommended that workers on a job site never be exposed to more than 85 decibels per 8-hour period? Keep this in mind when selecting a generator for hire. If you know that your workers will be near the generator that you choose, then you may want to consider spending a little bit more to rent a special silenced generator. Your employees will thank you for it!
