Generators

If your building project requires a backup in case of a power outage, a generator is essential. There are various generators available to suit a range of purposes, from building to camping. Construction sites require industrial generators powered by petrol or diesel. In contrast, electric or portable generators might be more suitable for home renovation projects. Inverter generators are ideal for powering electrical equipment like laptops and TVs when you don’t have access to a mains outlet.

What are the Most Popular Types of Generators?

Whether you’re a professional tradesperson, DIY enthusiast or holidaymaker, find the right generator for you at Toolstation.

Petrol Generators

Petrol generators are a popular choice, providing good value and ample power. They are often smaller, more portable and better for the environment than diesel generators.

Diesel Generators

Diesel-powered generators are more economical than petrol generators, as they can produce large amounts of energy from less fuel. However, the initial cost of a diesel generator is higher and can potentially cause environmental harm. They are generally considered safer for building sites as diesel is less flammable than petrol.

Inverter Generators

Inverter generators change DC power into AC power, making it safe to use with electronic devices. They are light, compact, quiet, and produce fewer emissions than petrol or diesel generators.

Silent Generators

These generators are designed to be as quiet as possible thanks to soundproof enclosures which encase the generator. Silent generators can be either petrol or diesel-powered. Toolstation stocks an extensive range of generators, including inverter and petrol-powered generators, from trusted brands such as Draper, Festool and Zipper.
