Default Wacker neuson Gen

I was on a jobsite on Sunday. They had these gens running. Quiet as a Honda 3kW Inverter. Surprising for a 58kW !
Never heard of them before, anyone use these before ?

They have been around a long time. Not as popular as MQ or Airman but it is not rocket science to make a generator quiet. Just sheet metal, foam, and proper engineering.

I have worked around them and have had to wire them up several times. They are a great brand of generators. Really easy to adjust the voltage as well... Just remember that they are diesel... Not the best for having in a tunnel...

Back when I was in the military (kicking the Canadian's asses in the war of 1812) we would dig a hole and put the generator in it. Best way to make them quiet. All the noise goes straight up so the Canucks couldn't find us.
