Generators

Don’t be left in the dark. If you have commercial or farm property that would be in danger if a power outage occurs, you might want to consider purchasing a stand-by generator. You may also consider a generator for your families comfort and safety during a severe outage. Benefits of a stand-by generator include:

  • Permanently installed
  • Automatically starts when the power goes out
  • Quiet operation and sleek profile
  • Natural gas or liquid propane - you do not need to worry about refueling throughout the night
  • Can be sized to take care of your entire home and keep water flowing from your well
  • May qualify for WIPCO's generator program and reduce your overall power costs every month

PTO Generator (manual transfer switch needed and needs to match the horsepower of your tractor engine). Benefits of a PTO generator include:

  • Connects directly to the driveshaft of your tractor
  • Portable power
  • Costs less for equivalent power provided by a stand-by generator
  • Provides power to select items

Portable Generator (manual transfer switch needed and fuel level will need monitored). Benefits of a portable generator include:

  • No installation but needs to be properly stored
  • Manually starts with a pull cord
  • Provides power to select items

We understand that everyone may have different need for a backup power solution. We sell, install, and service standby generators, PTO generators and propane stand-by generators along with automatic transfer switches. Give our Member Services Department a call and they would be glad to help you determine what type of stand-by power system best suites your needs. They can be reached at 800-253-5189. Free quotes on generators for your home, farm or business.

Please note that with recent storms and COVID, we are seeing extended delivery times.

Be sure to also review our generator safety section under the Safety tab on this website.
