This generator can be trusted to deliver reliable high quality power. An oversized muffler to reduce noise keeps sound at a highly manageable 61.0 dB(A). Other. Features include a lockable control panel and a digital control panel. The Kubota SQ1120 is also the lightest unit, coming in at 780kg.

SQ1150 Diesel Single Phase 15kVA

With an extra cylinder in the engine, this model gives users an extra 3.8kVA (continuous output) compared to the SQ1120. Although it is basically the same in terms of sound levels - you can expect the SQ1120 and the SQ1150 to drink similar amounts of diesel throughout the day.
