My supplier pimps the Milbank generators too.

Now all I need is to sell one of them for a review.

Before you buy from a supply house check the prices here..http://www.norwall.com/brands/

As of right now, they don't carry MILLBANK.. but that will change I am sure..

THe specific job im looking at I might have to put the genny at the other end of the building which in all is close to a 200 foot run.
Im tossing around the idea of reworking three existing sets of 4/0 feeders that go to that end of the building but serve smallish loads. The only reason im thinking this is because the owner is looking to keep the cost on the low end. do you guys think its a bad idea..? should I just price out a conduit run and pipe work...? Or give him the options..

The transfer switch and gas location are the things you need to work out first.. that is what eats up money the fastest..

The further away from the gas supply, the larger the piping..

Owners always want to keep the cost down.. they never say spend... spend... spend..

You know what. I just realized I can probably just piggy back on that pipe run of three 3"emt. They have plenty of room on the unistrut....
