Perkins was the first company to build small high-speed DIESEL engines. They have been building engines since 1932.  In 1998 Caterpillar purchased Perkins.  They are now the largest diesel engine company in the world. The warranty, service, and reliability of their engines are second to none.  It does not matter what engine you choose, or if you use it for off-grid power. You can expect the same long life and warranty as for any other.

Aurora industrial class alternators are highly reliable and produce clean, stable power even in harsh conditions. Automatic Voltage Regulated to 0.5% precision. The alternator is brushless and requires no maintenance. The generator head is directly driven by a heavy engine flywheel. The large rotating mass helps to reduce fluctuations in power when heavy loads are applied.
