I took a look at the CAG ones, the standard 4 KW weighs 100 lbs and the silent 4 KW weights 160 lbs. that is not to bad.


The $$$ on the other hand may be very, very bad !

Mike,
Certainly diesel has its advantages. Have you considered Liquid Propane for your generator? I just put a Tri-Fuel Conversion kit (gasoline/LP/NG) on my Generac GP5500. And it works like a champ...with no worry of stale fuel when its needed most. The conversion kits are available for many gennies of many sizes.

I previously started a thread on the conversion here:

Good luck with whatever direction you might choose!
Mike

For now my two Yamaha 4kw parallel setup works just fine for camping. I carry 10 gallons of gas on board for them they only weigh about 45 lbs each and use a fuel satbilizer When I get a genset for the house, it will be propane powered.

One concern would be sound level with a diesel generator. At least for camping, you want it to be 60dB or below. The "silent" CAG version is 68dB.
