Generators and Related Products for Rent
Many ARA-affiliated rental stores offer a full range of generators for rent. The following describes some of the possible generator and related product rental options. Your rental store professionals also can help you find a generator that is right for you.
- Portable generator. Rent a portable generator when you need to power electrical tools and equipment at an off-the-grid jobsite. These generators also work well to supply power for lights and a few appliances at a residential home during a power outage. Some portable generators can provide a maximum output of up to nearly 10,000 watts. It usually takes only one or two persons to lift a portable generator for easy transportation using a vehicle. Some models come equipped with wheels for additional portability.
- Towable generator. Rented towable generators provide more power than portable generators do. Towable generators typically provide between 14 and 640 kilowatts (kw) of power. You also sometimes can rent a skid that contains an additional fuel tank for use with the generator.
- Trailer-mounted generator. This type of generator rental often provides as much as 1,500 kw of power; enough for some industrial applications. Many of these generators can run for 24 hours, but you can rent an auxiliary tank if you need a longer run time.
- Entertainment production generator. These generator rentals offer extremely quiet operation for applications, such as movie productions, television broadcasts or outdoor concerts. Many of these generators come configured on trailers.
- Power distribution. Many rental stores rent power distribution panels to provide various voltage breakdown types and hookups for your needs. Some power distribution options include portable or weatherproof models, load banks and transformers.
- Accessories. Rental stores often carry a wide variety of accessories to complete your generator rental package. Items such as extension cords, remote monitoring systems and distribution accessories make up some of the full line of generator products that you may find available.
