Finding The Right Genertor Size
by: David

Hi Simon,

The best place to find out what generator size you need for your mobile catering business if a place called Edge Technology.

They also have a table with approximate power usage information and a calculator to help you work out the right generator size for all your business.

Please note: Edge Technology link not working, but link below is a good alternative

Find the right size generator here
