Generator Help - Catering Trailer Business

by Daniel
(UK)

Hi, further to previous message, we did the charity event and it went well!! Only a couple of sausages left over which the dog loved!!

Anyway, on to my next question. We are soon to be pitching from B&Q carpark through concessions. One of the conditions is that we have a generator that runs continuous for a min of 8 hours. This is because you are unable to re-fuel on site.

At the moment we have a HX2700 which only runs for 3 hours max. I have seen other generators that run for 10 hours plus but they are quite a bit cheaper than the Honda one I already have. I was wondering why I could pick up a Wolf Power generator that runs for 10 hours, has a higher output for less than 200 quid when mine only runs for 3 hours less power and costs around 400+.

Does it mean the Wolf Power one would not be very good? Also it takes 4 stroke petrol? is that unleaded?......confused.com!

Hi David, thanks for your reply. Do you know how much a conversion would cost? At the moment grill, bain marie, guiser are running on gas (propane) and the lights, fridge, freezers, kettle are run with petrol generator.

LPG Conversion Kit For Your Catering Trailer
by: Anonymous

Hi Daniel,

Glad to hear that your event went well, and lucky dog!

With regards to your generator have you considered buying an lpg conversion kit and running it on LPG.
I only say this because this is what I did, so need to worry about running our of fuel when you cooking.

My trailer had 2x 19kg bottles, so I could just switch beween the 2. I also had the gas bottles delivered which was a big help, especially when your busy.

Regards

David
