Camping, Caravanning, Off-Roading - Do it in style!

Portable generators are great for powering all kinds of equipment. Rough it with a cold beer, keep your food fresher for longer, charge the iPad to keep the kids entertained. A portable generator is the must have accessory for all outdoor activities. They're also great for parties and events, tradies and installed in food vans so you can take your business anywhere! 


Things break! Even the best kept generator can have its issues from time to time. Our extensive spare parts network stocks parts for almost every generator, so you're never caught out with a broken generator. We can even install it for you, saving you time and stress. Our parts cover the entire generator range, from portable through to industrial sets.


We have qualified engineers and electricians on site and out in the field so you'll have quick, responsive maintenance and repairs every time. Brand accredited staff with authorisation to work on brands such as Cummins means you'll have the best service by the qualified people - something you'll struggle to find elsewhere! 


Scared of commitment? A hire set is ideal for projects such as events, construction, and even long-term installations. With sets from 1kVA up to 2500kVA and supporting hire equipment such as load banks, fuel tanks, and trailer-mounted sets, you'll find the most competitively price solution for any occasion. Hire is also a great option to avoid that pesky capital expenditure!
