Love the Perkins engines used in Aurora Generators. There are a few generators called "silent diesel generators' Portable generators naturally have a short lifespan when used for prime power. That is normal for 3600 RPM engines. I got the Perkins two cylinder silent diesel generator. It uses the Perkins / Caterpillar C0.5 aka Perkins 402D-05 diesel. Aurora so far is the only company that has two cylinder diesel generators. Perkins guarantees it for 10,000 hours use and 500 hour oil changes. When you shop for a Silent Diesel Generator, make sure you get the liquid cooled one. Love Aurora Generators.
