Key Qualities that Make a Good Diesel Generator

Feb 19, 2021 | Generators

Buying a generator can be overwhelming. To simplify the process, we have outlined a few specifications to consider when choosing.


  1. Quietness

Generator noise levels are important for many to keep in mind when purchasing. Remember to consider where your generator will be stored and how loud the noise levels will be while it is running.

The Kubota SQ Series generators, for example, include numerous features that reduce overall noise levels. These consist of an improved noise reduction enclosure, a noise-absorbing duct with three air intake holes, an oversized muffler and a quieter cooling fan that runs at a slower speed.

Kubota GL Series generators also incorporate a large-capacity radiator; large-capacity, built-in muffler; a longer air-cleaner hose; and a specially designed inlet vent.


  1. Longevity

Purchasing a generator is a big decision. We understand that you need it to last and operate efficiently for the long haul.

  1. Compact design

When generators are lightweight and require less space for operation, performing maintenance becomes easier.

LOWBOY generators have the lowest-possible height while using vertical water-cooled diesel engines. Compared to other generators, they’re lightweight, require less space for operation and have a broader range of possible applications.


Maintenance is key to prolonging your generator’s service level. Here are our tips.

Once you have found the right generator for you, the ultimate key to longevity is maintenance.

Kubota generators include one-side maintenance, which reduces the operator’s workload and allows for quick maintenance checks on oil, fuel, battery and cooling water levels.


When in doubt, always reference your Operator’s Manual (provided with each generator) or reach out to your closest distributor. They are always happy to help or will point you to a service dealer in your area.
