Generator Tips

  • Generator Power: Look at the wattage you need or the type and number of tools and appliances you plan to use. Then, calculate whether the generator you are looking at can handle the load.
  • Generator Overload: Take care not to overload the generator. You can do this if you run too many powerful tools or pieces of equipment at once.
  • Fuel Supply: Ensure that you have enough of the necessary type of fuel to hand, so you can keep your generator running when needed, for as long as you need. You may need a fuel tank to store adequate fuel reserves.
  • Location: Please note that as generators feature combustion engines, you can only use them outdoors and in well-ventilated spaces. Place your generator on-site in an accessible area, where you can get to it when needed. It also needs to be close enough to the tools and equipment.
  • Lighting: Ensure there is suitable lighting around the generator or that you have a torch to hand so you can operate it in the dark.
  • Generator Testing: Test your generator at a time when it is not needed, such as before the start of a job or before a power outage. This will allow you to become familiar with how to start and run the generator when needed.
  • Electric Start Charge: Some generators have an electric start function rather than a pull cord. If your generator has an electric start, you must ensure that the start battery is kept charged up.
  • Prevent Large Periods of Inactivity: Fire up your generator occasionally, even when it is not required. This will help to keep the engine running smoothly, like with a car.

From 1st April 2022, our suppliers will only fuel machines with white diesel. This is due to new government guidelines.

If you, as the hirer, refuel any equipment while it is in your possession, it must be with WHITE DIESEL.

YOU MUST NOT USE RED DIESEL IN HIRED MACHINES OR EQUIPMENT.

If you return a machine refuelled with rebated diesel, suppliers will have to remove and dispose of the fuel. They must also flush the tank and supply lines before they can refuel them. The process is chargeable, with no exceptions.
