Deere & Company is one of the biggest names in the agricultural machinery industry. Everybody knows this for a fact, which is why it is also a highly preferred brand when it comes to huge equipments. However, what most people don’t know is that there are now John Deere portable generators, which are perfect for people who want the best for their home and outdoor trips.
If you’re not one of those folks looking for a stationery generator or you’re not exactly in love with the brands tri-fuel unit, then “compact” ones are the perfect solution for your needs. Keep in mind, though, that the term “portable” doesn’t necessarily mean that they can be actually carried, because majority of the units are wheeled around. Most information available online talk about units with great power capacity, despite being “handy”, which means you don’t have to worry about running short, especially if you need to use a couple of power tools while the electricity is out in the neighborhood.
In the general sense, you can compare these units to Yamaha’s long line of compact generators (ef3000iseb, ef2400is, and ef1000is to name a few). Mostly, they offer the same features but most John Deere units are not exactly the for-home only kind of line. Despite being classified as portable, they are still quite bulkier than the normal, although there are also small ones. John Deere units also boast of motors made by Honda and Subaru, which are leading names in engine production, guaranteeing you that they do know what they’re talking about when they offer a lot of energy.
To help you learn more about what your options are, here’s a list of the most common portable backup power supply models from John Deere:
1. The IDLC125-3J and IDLC100-3J models are loaded with 100 kWe inside. They’re not exactly the first thing that will enter your mind when someone says “small”, but it is already pretty compact for something that offers that much electricity.
2. The HR-G1700i is a literally teeny inverter generator from John Deere. This model is probably the nearest to the prevalent notion of portable generators, because it is small and can only produce up to 1650 watts.
3. Packed with a trusty Subaru engine, the AC-G3200i boasts of being able to produce up to 4300 watts. It has a 4.2 gallon fuel tank, so you don’t have to worry about having to refill too often.
