  •  Periodically start the machine if it is going to be unused for a very long time
  • Tie units down when in transport
  •  Limitations of the Genset; what it can and cannot run.
  •  To deter thieves, buy a cable lock
  • Always test your newly bought generator out before there is an emergency or the actual time of use. In that, you will be sure the machine works. If anything then that you can replace it before the warranty expires.
