We also carry a variety of lightweight inverter generators, ideal for your next campout or for running an RV AC, and pto (also called tractor generators or power takeoff units). These generators provide Murray, Utah tractor owners with a reliable and cost effective way to produce electricity. If you are a building contractor, examine our selection of superior industrial machines.
Whether you are interested in a portable or a standby generator, consider both altitude and potential outside temperatures before committing to a particular model. Murray's elevation is 4,301 feet above sea level. July, the warmest month in just about all Utah locations, has an average maximum temperature of just under 91 degrees. January, the city's coldest month, averages right around 20 degrees.
Consider both altitude and temperatures whenever you are planning a generator purchase. Maximum generator output occurs at or below 85 degrees F. For every additional 5 degrees F, it tapers off 1%. This means that at 100 degrees F, you will have dropped approximately 3% of your maximum running and surge watts - numbers that will only become further skewed by elevation increases. A generator drops 3% to 4% of its maximum watts for every 1000 feet in elevation it reaches (above sea level). A generator that is operated one mile above sea level can wind up sacrificing as much as 20% of its wattage.
Summer days in Utah are frequently hotter than 85 degrees, and Murray temperatures are certainly no different. Heat and elevation don't necessarily require a more-powerful generator model. If you know in advance, however, that the load you will be running requires full generator capacity (or if all available surge watts are needed to start an electric motor - such as the motor in an RV air conditioning unit), then you will probably need a larger generator. A lot of RV dealerships will have demo models that customers can experiment with, a good way to discover in advance if the generator model you have in mind can run a given load.
