Because of their durability, reliability, and long life, diesel generators are the preferred generator type for standby and emergency power supply systems worldwide. A diesel generator can start operating and assume the electrical load in less than 10 seconds of a power outage.
Americas Generators carries a wide selection of different diesel generators in its inventory, with Cummins being one of the top brands. Cummins generators are recognized worldwide for their rugged dependability, both for mechanical and electrical performance. Cummins diesel generators can be counted on by utility peaking plants, distributed generation facilities, and commercial and industrial sites.
