For The Sale & Installation Of Standby & Other Units
Located in Central Utah, T-Rex Generators offers a range of standby and portable generators for everything from emergency backup of a residence or business, to camping and recreation (or to operate that RV AC unit), to construction and job-site performance. Any tractor owner seeking generator backup should consider a tractor-driven or PTO model. By utilizing the tractor's own engine to manufacture electricity, these machines can be 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of a motor-equipped generator of similar output!
Whether you're looking for a portable recreational generator to power a rooftop AC, or a standby unit to provide backup during an outage, we believe T-Rex has a generator that will fit your needs. We advise all Utah customers who are after a motorized generator to consider the altitude and summer temperatures of our state when selecting a model. All generators are rated for operation at sea level where temperatures will be no greater than 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Utah's high elevation means sustaining some altitude-related power loss. Since portable generators, in particular, are used in the summer, when temperatures can exceed 85 degrees, you should expect power losses during these periods to be their worst.
With maximum generator output available at sea level with outside temperatures modest, any deviation from these conditions will bring about some power slippage. At the right conditions, this power loss can become dramatic. For instance, an increase of 5 degrees Fahrenheit (with an 85 degree baseline) normally entails a 1% loss of output. At 100 degrees Fahrenheit, your maximum running (and surge) watts will be 3% lower than whatever they were at sea level. The generator will also forfeit 3% to 4% of its rated wattage for every 1000 feet above sea level at which it's being used. While these power losses do not change in percentage from a 2000-watt generator to a 10000-watt generator, in our experience they tend to impact routine operation of smaller units most (those being the models that are likeliest to run at or near full capacity).
Extra heat and elevation may not require a larger or more-powerful generator. Altitude-tuning can help mitigate somewhat against altitude-related power slippage. The load being powered will often dictate if a larger generator is needed at a high-altitude elevation. If a given (essential) load requires the unit's full rated running or surge watts, then the generator should usually be resized.
If you are considering a generator for recreational use and have questions about using the unit in a National Forest, contact one of the regional USFS offices.
