Have you ever seen anything like this before? I have seen many rusted base frames but this one is the worst.
Can you believe that this generator is in this condition after only 7 short years! Personally, I would not want to shell out thousands of dollars for a generator and end up with this in 7 years. I would spend a little more money and get a brand that will last. What is the brand that will last, you ask? I will get to that shortly.
I tell all my customers that you need to do you research and make sure you are getting what you pay for in a generator. This particular brand offers “All Aluminum Housing” and thats great but look what it is bolted to, the base frame. This generator comes with a cheap, thin base frame. Over time, in this coastal environment, the frame will look like this…
Look closely at the picture and you will notice that the alternator and engine are resting on bricks! Crazy! This customer will have to spend thousands to get this unit back to a safe, running condition.
So, what is the best brand that will last in this environment? Kohler! Kohler Generators has the best units on the market. Their base frames are thick, high grade of steel and coated to prevent rust. You might pay a little more but you will have something that lasts.
