The EDL7000SDE is a compact and lightweight diesel powered unit designed primarily for commercial applications such as construction, agriculture and business uses. However its compact size and reduced noise levels means the EDL7000SDE can also be used for emergency power backup and off grid applications too.


Automatic engine shut-down system for low oil pressure and excessive coolant temperature, dedicated terminal for ATS switches, double circuit breakers and a convenient maintenance hatch makes the EDL7000SDE a great choice when looking for a strong, reliable power supply with lower running costs and easier maintenance.
