Factors to Consider When Renting Generators

Feb. 28, 2024

The leasing of generator sets is divided into short-term leasing, long-term leasing, and standby leasing. Short term rental of generator sets shall be calculated based on the starting price plus the number of days. Short term rental fees will be higher. According to your usage time, a certain amount of rent will generally be reduced accordingly.

Choosing a generator as a backup power source is a wise choice for many people when there is insufficient electricity. Generators are usually the main source of electricity during construction or commercial construction sites, cinemas, markets, or carnivals. When disasters occur, generators often serve as emergency backup power sources for power outages or post disaster situations.


The type and size of generators vary depending on the situation, from small applications that require limited power supply (such as home power supply) to backup power sources in large industrial sites, suitable generator rental types can be selected for the next project.


As for renting out generators, when choosing a suitable generator set for your project, Dingbo Electric reminds you to consider several things.


1. Do you need lightweight, towing, or towing equipment? It is usually determined by the size of the generator that best suits your needs. Choose the appropriate size based on the amount of electricity required for your home, venue, or event organization. Power is divided into watts, kilowatts, megawatts, or amperes. You can determine the actual size of the required generator based on the power of appliances, tools, or electronics. At initial startup, each project will use 2 to 3 times the rated power. If you have the opportunity to complete all the projects at once and rent a generator that is 35% larger than you imagine.


2. If you want to rent a generator on a long trip, you need daily necessities such as a coffee pot, radio, electric pot, and a 1000 watt portable generator.


3. Plan a RV trip? A 2500 watt portable generator can drive your micro microwave, toaster, hair dryer, and other small appliances.


4. A small portable generator of 3000 to 7000 watts is sufficient to provide most household appliances and daily necessities. Assuming you have a larger home or a drilling pump, you will find it necessary to choose a larger generator.


5. On construction sites, saws, grinders, spray, portable halogen lighting equipment, air compressors and electric drills are often used. Therefore, it is appropriate to choose a 10 kW traction generator.


6. Trailer type generators ranging from 20 kW to 100 kW can provide sufficient electricity for small and medium-sized commercial offices.


7. In compact and quiet movie scenes, the generator can be installed on a trailer, providing a current of 200 to 1600 amperes.


8. Another issue to consider is the rental source of the generator. This type of engine is typically fueled with gasoline, diesel, or propane.


Using a small generator set, gasoline generators can be selected. Most gasoline is usable, but compared to other types of fuels, it has a shorter storage time. Gasoline is easy to burn, so when making decisions, remember to choose fuel to ensure the safety of fuel storage.


Diesel engines are also easy to obtain and not too expensive for long-term use. Gasoline and propane are not very easy to burn, but generators using diesel have greater noise than other fuels.


When emission regulations exist, it is best to use a propane generator as a clean combustion fuel. In some regions, propane is more expensive than gasoline or diesel, so when choosing a generator, cost should be considered.

Dingbo Power was founded in 1974 and is one of the earliest manufacturers of generators and diesel generator sets in China. If you want get more information, please feel free to send email to sales@dieselgeneratortech.com we will pay highly attention on your question.
