5 kVA Silent Generator

Some generators are too big, some are just too small. But the 5 kVA generator is perfectly sized for so many applications it makes sense to have one whether you want to power home or garden devices, run an outdoor-based small business, or simply use for recreation. They are also common on small construction sites, and can even be used - with the help of a professional electrician - as a backup for your residential power.

Our range of 5kVA diesel generators features 5kVA gensets from Pramac generators with Yanmar and Lombardini high-performance engines.

5kVA Diesel Generator

Because of the size of the 5 kVA generators, they are perfect for mobile businesses such as catering and food vans. However, to find the perfect option, there are a few things you need to consider. Ideally, you will want to check out some 5 kVA silent generators so that you keep the noise down to a minimum - look for noise block technology and inbuilt mufflers. The more compact design, the better, too - some of the small 5 kVA generators are a massive 25kg less than others in terms of weight, which will save you struggling when setting up your stall. And finally, ensure you select a fuel-efficient model, and also think about getting an inverter generator to produce a better level of clean power, enabling you to use your generator for sensitive electronic appliances such as laptops and mobile phones.

A sturdy 5 kVA generator is also going to be good for using on trade sites and rural areas such as farming locations. Again, though, there are a few things you might need on your 5 kVA generator to ensure it is best suited for your requirements. 5 kVA power generators on construction sites and farms need to be able to power small and medium-sized drills, pumps, saws, and a whole plethora of different common tools, so you should be aiming for a generator running power between 4,000 and 5,000 watts. You should also seek out a steel rollover frame to protect your engine, and a large fuel tank to ensure it lasts the duration of your tasks. You can get optional long-range fuel tanks on some models, lifting bars, electric starts for speedy use, and earth leakage protection - all essential for working outside.

5kVA Power Generator

Unsurprisingly, if you want a 5 kVA home generator, there are a few key features and procedures you need to consider. High power and excellent economy are essential, of course, so look for something with a large fuel tank and robust design - something like a 4-stroke engine should be enough. 2-wire auto start controllers are also handy for backing up your solar power, or look for an automatic transfer switch - or AMF panel - to back up the mains in your house or business premises. With these features, as soon as the power dies, the 5 kVA generator will spring into action. Bear in mind that you will need the help of a qualified electrician to install your generator properly - if you aren’t one yourself.

"If you just need a portable generator to use for electric tools, small- to medium-sized farming equipment and pumps on sites, homes or farms, then there are plenty of 5 kVA generator options for you. Consider going for an air-cooled diesel option, which tends to have a lower cost of ownership, will last you a lot longer than the alternatives, and needless looking after in the long-term. Seek out a 5 kVA generator with a heavy-duty steel frame if you will be using your generator in tough, challenging conditions.

Finally, seek out a 5 kVA generator with electric start and single-phase if you work in areas where noise restrictions can be a problem. These devices are great for when you have to work at nights or when doing things like roadworks or events.
