Winter Generators

Petrol, diesel, dual fuel and inverter generators can act as a much needed backup power source for homes and workplaces over the winter season. Easy to use and maintain, our generators include Champion and Warrior generators that provide reliable power in the case of emergencies and power cuts. These AC generators can be used as a backup generator in the workplace or domestic environment. Available as both manual pull or recoil start generators, electric start generators, or remote start generators and with a range of accessories, safety features and different wattages and power options to suit your requirements.

Choose from different sizes according to your individual requirements.

Portable Petrol Generators

Petrol generators are ideal for powering smaller scale items, such as lights, radios, TVs and fridges, are reliable when starting up in cold weather (due to their spark ignition process), can be quite cheap to run and generally produce a limited amount of noise. They can also be lighter than their diesel powered equivalents, making them easier to transport and position.

  • Champion 2800 Watt Petrol Generator - 3 kVA Manual start generator that can power some small appliances
  • Champion 3500 Watt Petrol Generator - 3.75kVA Electric start generator that can be used to power fridges, lights, TVs, power tools and other small appliances
  • Champion 5500 Watt Petrol Generator - 6kVA Remote start generator for providing electrical power to larger and multiple items
  • Champion 8000 Watt Petrol Generator - 9.4kVA Remote start generator that can power several electrical appliances at once, and can function as a whole house backup generator

Diesel Generators

Diesel generators can be excellent backup winter generators for both domestic and commercial application as they are fuel efficient (meaning they run longer on less fuel, increasing running times and requiring less fuel to be stored). Modern diesel generators run much quieter (many are now fitted with covers to allow near silent running) than their historic models, menaing that they can be used in residential areas without much dispruption. Due to diesel generators not requiring a sparkplug for ingition (they rely on compression) and the fact that diesel burns at a lower temperature than petrol, means that they require less maintenance than petrol generators, providing longer lasting performance.  However, their startup can be less reliable in cold weather due to it relying on comperssion rather than a spark.

  • Warrior 4.6 kW Diesel Generator - 5.75kVA Electric start diesel generator that cna be used domestically as a backup power source
  • Warrior 5 kW Diesel Generator - 4.75kVA Electric start silent diesel generator that can be used to power a range of appliances
  • Warrior 6.3 kW Diesel Generator - 6.2kVA Electric start silent diesel generator suitable for use white goods and lighting units
  • Warrior 11kW Diesel Generator - 13.7kVA Electric start silent diesel generator that is ideal for use during power cuts or for heavy duty power use

Dual Fuel Generators

Dual fuel generators offer more versatilty in the winter months as they can powered by petrol and/or LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas). This allows more choice as to what fuel is used to power them at a particular time, and also means that there is not complete reliance on just one fuel source, meaning that if one source is scarce, the other can be relyed upon. 

  • Champion 2800 Watt Dual Fuel Generator - 3.1kVA Electric start dual fuel generator ideal for powering appliances at home or in the workplace.
  • Champion 7000 Watt Dual Fuel Generator - 7.5kVA Electric start dual duel generator that can be used powering multiple appliances

Inverter Generators

Inverter generators produce cleaner (essentially more regulated and reliable frequency) AC power than conventional generators, so are more suited as a backup generator in commercial workplace, as they generally have a 3 phase process of producing electricty: an AC currrent is generated and then converted to DC (smoothing out the current), and then inverted back to AC power that maintains a single phase, pure sine wave of the required voltage and frequency, compared with conventional generators whose frequency fluctuates with the engine's rpm. The result is a much more reliable and cleaner AC output that is not influenced by the engine speed, meaning that sensitive electrical items that use microprocessors such as computers, phones, tablets and consoles can be powered from the generator with less possibility that they will be damaged or malfunction.  Workplaces or homes that use an abundance of sensitive electrical equipment may require an invereter generator as a standby or backup generator during the winter months.

  • Champion 1000 Watt Inverter Generator - 1kVA Manual start silent inverter generator that can be used to power smaller sensitive electrical items
  • Champion 2000 Watt Inverter Generator - 2.3kVA Manual start silent inverter generator that can power sensitive electrical items
  • Champion 3100 Watt Inverter Generator - 3.1kVA Manual start silent inverter generator suitable for powering multiple smaller sensitive electrical appliances
  • Champion 3100 Watt Inverter Generator - 3.1kVA Electric and Remote start silent inverter generator that can be used to power electrical appliances that are sensitive to electrical frequency output
