Petrol Powered Generators – Elgon Magnar Irrigation Systems

Have you been looking for a reliable petrol-powered generator in Kenya? At Elgon Kenya Limited we have got the right one for you.  Elgon Magnar Series (Mn2500/Mn3500/MN6500) are petrol powered generators with a 1year warranty.


Generating electricity through petrol powered generators is essentially the conversion of mechanical power into electrical power for use in a specified application. When power cuts strike it is good to be prepared with an alternative energy source, such as a petrol-powered generator. It’s the best thing one can have in the event of a power outage. We have a petrol-powered generator that best suits your particular application, whether  be it for residential generator or commercial generator power.


Loss of power from the national grid often occurs with little or no warning. Power cuts wreak havoc on the lives of individuals and businesses and result in economic turmoil. Those of us who live in areas prone to power cuts know all too well that the inconvenience of having no reliable power source. In order to get life and business back on track it is necessary to have power and that is why many people decide to install a backup generator or prime power generator. Petrol-powered generators can be a lifesaver when it comes to getting back to life and business. However, like all things they are not all created equally and as such there are a few important things to look for when purchasing a generator.



Things to consider when buying petrol-powered generator

Firstly, one must decide how much power they realistically need to get things back up and running. To gauge this, you will need to determine what types of equipment you need to run and how much energy they need. You will need to find out what sort of wattage is required in order to size the petrol-powered generator correctly. When you add up all the wattage needed it will often be much higher than what you realistically need. Most equipment requires a large amount of energy to start but not to run continuously. Others use the same amount whenever they are on. If you stagger your usage and don’t turn everything on at once you can often operate on a much smaller backup generator. Another important part of this is the willingness to compromise on unnecessary equipment. For instance, for a household, leaving off the TV and the lights saves enough power to run a refrigerator and some small appliances. If it is necessary to have all of the appliances in the house on at the same time you will want to buy a more powerful petrol-powered generator. The cost will be that the larger the unit the more fuel the generator will consume.


Fuel efficiency is something to also consider when choosing a petrol-powered generator because the availability of more fuel is not always guaranteed and the cost factor needs to be considered. Smaller inverter type generators are more efficient than the larger higher wattage diesel generators. These inverter generators are best for delicate electronics like computers because they control the output in order to keep a steady stream with little or no spiking.


You can decide whether you want a backup generator or you require a prime power generator. Backup generators are used in the event the grid power, the primary source of power, is lost.


The last thing to consider is the amount of noise the petrol-powered generator puts out. Although not strictly a functional issue there is a quality of life issue to this matter. If you have a home far from neighbors, then noise is less of an issue but if you live in the city or suburbs there are other people to consider as well as your own comfort. etrol-powered generators have come a long way in reducing sound levels. Sound attenuation is a desirable factor when installing the fuel powered generator that best works for your particular application.
