In 1983 the world's smallest air-cooled diesel engine was developed by a company called Yanmar. Since the patent expired many companies now produce engines using the same design. It is used in virtually every portable diesel generator around the world.
All these diesel engines are made in countries where materials are very expensive and the labor is very cheap so you need to be aware of a few things before you buy.
First, nothing is made in North America. Other then the Lombardini brand from Italy, all the rest come from China. Companies take shortcuts, use cheap materials and workers who make peanuts. Quality control and parts supply is always an issue. No one ever seems to stand behind their products. They are often one time sales and they know that.
