What to Look For in a Trade Site Generator

If only a power supply was as accessible as a wireless internet connection. Until that day comes, tradies will have to rely on portable generators to power up their tools when there’s no handy mains supply available.

The key to selecting the right generator lies in understanding the capacity you’re going to need. Get it wrong and your worksite generator will strain under the demand. Buy too big and you could end up with something that’s too heavy and costly.
Find out what’s going to suit you best as we take you through the big guns in the Maxwatt range.
