Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Is there a lift eye on the top of the unit? (10/21/19 1:27 PM)

Q: Can you confirm this generator runs on diesel not propane? (10/21/19 3:09 PM)
A: Yes, it runs on diesel fuel. Thank you (10/21/19 5:41 PM)

Q: 1) What is weight of the generator unit? 2) Is the generator unit disconnected from the concrete foundation and free and clear to lift? 3) What is the nearest Crane Service from the location of the generator? (10/29/19 8:16 PM)
A: 1. We are not aware of the weight of the current generator. The new generator is twice the size with a much larger enclosure, it weighs 124,000 lbs. I would estimate that the current one weighs in at 75,000 lbs, again an estimate only. 2. The generator will be removed from the current location and will not be affixed to any structure or connected in any way. 3. John’s Crane is who we use here at the plant, phone is 319-351-6221. Thank you, Steve (10/31/19 9:08 AM)
