Default Dayton (WW Grainger) 5kW Diesel

Gents,

I wound up with one of these-anybody know the manufacturer?

Looks like a portable home depot grade generator, but engine is a 3600 rpm Yanmar diesel single with 50 hrs-been sitting a long time. Was originally corn cobbed in a bus for air conditioner.

No AC output-gonna check exciter diodes tomorrow.

Brent

Talking Re: Dayton (WW Grainger) 5kW Diesel

Dayton IS the Brand name for all Grainger Motors and Generators. They have
them built by lots OEM's to their inhouse Specs. Grainger can supply most
ALL information on ANY Dayton Product, if you just give them the Model & Serial numbers off the DataPlate.

I knew Grangier labeled everything "Dayton"-figured out the unit is built by "Master" part of the Desa conglomerate (reddy heater)

Not real fond of Grainger-won't even say hello without your account number

Luckily I remembered the work account.

Much prefer MSC.

Boy I bet that little diesel is making some noise at 3600 RPM. My portable is a Dayton 5500 Watts on a 11 HP Briggs @ 3600 RPM you can't hear your self think.
