So, it looks like I'm in need of a new generator - I'm looking for suggestions for where I might buy a used one, say within 2-4 hours of Toronto (so into the US as well). I'm looking for a newer unit, diesel, 1800rpm, ~10kW, preferably one that comes with some type of warrantee. So far in my limited research I'm partial to Westerbeke and Northern Lights due to their lack of complexity. I have completely ruled out Kohler for exactly this reason.

Hi Steve:
I personally have first hand knowledge on the Westerbeke 7.6 kw diesel set. Ours is now 10 years old with 2100 hours on it and with very diligent maintenance has been trouble free. Being in the industry, the Northern Lights units are the el PRIMOS on the diesel boats without exception only coming into competition with Caterpillar on units on the larger mega & super yachts.
Cat has nothing to offer below 13.5 kw.

Good Luck,
Jim Rivas
