Default Onan 2.5 AJ 1p/114k weight

What in the "He??" is inside this thing. Man O man the guy that built this dolly put the wheels on the wrong side I never felt a single cyl. engine weigh this much. I need to check for 12v armature for starting. but will run with rope start definatly a screamin 3600. tag says 12v so maybe It can be wired elec. start but there are no cables now will have to dig in when I get time.

...... or my portable 800 lbs 15.0JC. Takes 2 people to roll it if the ground is not level and / or smooth. If it gets away from you, it will take out a small car upon impact.

Yes I have a cck also and remember how heavy it was when setting it up but I thought that AJ with just a single cyl. was really heavy on the engine side. Hey Dan hows it goin neighbor my profile needs updated that Onan green has got me a couple of times more since I wrote that profile. Thanks all for the litiature

Why DJC isn't that deisel ? I like natual gas for emergency no storing fuel that goes bad and hard to start after carb sits long. Also waiting in line at fuel stations could get old. But maybe you don't have natual gas where you are. Have a good one John

That's me, no natural gas. Probably never happen in my lifetime. But I do have enough tanks to hold a winters worth of #2 fuel oil, with a healthy safety margin. So in my case a diesel makes sense. My 3.0DJA will power the heating system, refrigerator, some lights, and the TV. If I need to pump water, microwave food, or whatever I start a gasoline generator. I'm still looking for a reasonably priced DJB or DJC.

I guese I am luckier then I realize having nat. gas. I have a 30EK and 5cck on nat. gas and a couple of small gasoline units. I have a main 10 inch nat gas transmission line right a way that goes through my yard over 100lb pressure I was standing near it with my dog one day when one of the old pipe couplers let go. POW ! Scared the Sh?? out of me and the dokg we ran like he?? it took 4-5 hours before they could get it shut down the whole valley was full of gas. It blew a 10' hole in the ground. All the gas co. trucks where here and they let there engines running on there trucks and I asked Don't you think you need to shut them down and they just laughed and said the mixture has to be just right to blow and I said OK ?

Pa ridgerunner do not believe everything those guys tell you I worked over 30 years in the oil and gas field anything is possible I have seen some explosions of natural gas caused by a little spark from static had a bailing machine back fire and set well on fire HOT DAM any way natural gas is the way to go for fuel way cheaper than petro or lpg
