Inspected, tested and approved
so you can buy with confidence.
Buying a used generator need not be a gamble. FW Power has 25 years of experience in diesel generators both in the UK and overseas. We are committed to providing only the highest quality used diesel generators, which is why all of the used generators we sell undergo a 75 point service inspection check and a full load test prior to despatch. Consider it to be like an MOT and test run but in much more detail covering all aspects of the operation and function of the generator.
