How to Choose the Right WINCO Generator

By Kevin Malone

When it comes to choosing the right diesel generator, you can chalk it up to four main criteria: purpose, cost, power, and spatial logistics. This is why there are so many types of generators available for contractors. At Intech Equipment and Supply, we highly recommend WINCO generators for their performance and industry track record.

Whether you need a powerful construction diesel generator or a portable gas generator, there is a WINCO generator that suits your diverse contracting needs. This quick guide will show you how to choose the right WINCO generator when you visit the Intech online store and outline the factors you should consider.

WINCO: A Standard for Expertise

WINCO is a manufacturing company that is known for its high-quality generators. Its products include a wide range of generators, including PTO, portable, emergency standby, prime diesel generators and related components. Whether you need a large diesel generator to power your industrial-grade spray foam rig or a standby generator to cover you in the event of a power outage, WINCO has a generator that will meet your needs.

This decision to focus solely on generators has made this Minnesota-based company one of the leading names in generators for both residential and commercial construction. These are some questions to consider to ensure you choose the best model for your needs.

Q: How will I use the generator?

While homeowners often need an emergency standby generator to keep the electricity running during a power outage, contractors need generators that provide substantial, self-sufficient power on job sites and in rugged environments.

Different applications require unique voltage and mobility needs. For example, spray foam equipment has different voltage and mobility needs than roofing equipment. Residential contractors need less power than commercial and industrial contractors. This is why it is essential to consider your business and the type of projects you do when choosing a portable, fixed, or diesel generator.

Q: How much power do I need?

The more energy your equipment requires, the more powerful a generator it needs. Many spray foam contractors can operate their rig with a portable generator. However, if you need power for long periods or have equipment with high energy needs, fixed diesel generators will give you the required running wattage and run time.

  • For maximum power, check out the WINCO 23KW diesel generator. It is one of the first WINCO generators to enter the Tier IV Final market and comes with a standard DSE7310 controller, a powerful Isuzu 4LE2T series engine, and plenty of advanced features like Electronic Common Rail and radiator ducting.

Q: Do I need to prioritize mobility?

Will you store your generator in your rig or do you need to move it around job sites or across rugged terrain? If you plan to move your generator frequently, you should explore portable units on wheels. If you plan to keep your generator in one place, a non-portable option will work.

Q: What is my budget?

When you purchase any construction equipment, you must be sure that you are not underestimating your needs or buying something that exceeds your requirements. Striking the right balance between cost and performance is key to productivity and satisfaction, and portable generators usually cost less than large, fixed generators.

Both types of generators come in various sizes and power specifications. So, you might choose a portable one based on cost considerations. If you need to stay within a specific budget, one of our experts can direct you to budget-friendly options that provide the power you need.

A dependable generator can help you take your business to the next level. So, it is important to purchase the right one. If your current budget means you would be forced to buy a generator that is less than what you need, consider our in-house financing. For more information, check out our financing calculator.
