Allmand Bros. Inc., a subsidiary of Briggs and Stratton Corporation and long-time manufacturer of high-performance portable equipment, expands its product offerings with the introduction of Maxi-Power Mobile Generators. The line includes seven easily maneuverable generators ranging in output from 25 to 150 kilovolt amps to accommodate a variety of applications.
“Our Maxi-Power generators are designed with reliable performance and convenience in mind — hallmarks of all of our Allmand equipment,” said Brian Northway, Allmand product manager. “We know our customers require high productivity, so our generators incorporate features that contribute to exceptional efficiency and minimal maintenance. Plus, like all Allmand equipment, it’s easy to transport.”
A heavy-duty, oversized alternator with separate excitation winding provides the capacity to easily start large motors and seamlessly handle variable loads. The automatic voltage regulator quickly adjusts to provide stable and consistent voltage for powering even the most sensitive equipment. For flexibility on any jobsite, Maxi-Power generators easily switch between 50- and 60-Hertz frequencies. All models adjust between 120, 240 and 277 volts in single-phase power and 208, 240, 415 or 480 volts in three-phase.
An electronic governor maintains engine speed independent of the load to provide consistent power. The Maxi-Power series features programmable start and stop capabilities for use as a standby system, allowing ease of mind and operator-free starting.
Maxi-Power generators are designed for worry-free operation. A large capacity fuel tank allows for more than 24 hours of operation before refueling. Additionally, external fuel connections extend operational time by allowing the unit to run off outside fuel. Should a Maxi-Power generator run out of diesel, the electric fuel primer and air-bleed (EFPA) pump allow for easy restarting without requiring service for priming. A high-capacity cold start battery provides extra amps for reliable starting in any climate or condition.
Maxi-Power generators feature design elements that reduce maintenance and protect the equipment, operators and jobsite. A dual filtration system, protected in an acrylic filter housing, removes fine contaminants to enhance protection and prolong engine life. Designed for 110 percent full-fluid containment, the unit captures all leakage in an internal reservoir to avoid site contamination. Additionally, a lockable switch voltage selector protects the engine by preventing the operator from switching voltage while the engine is running.
All fluids are plumbed to the curbside edge of the generator’s enclosure for easy maintenance access. Likewise, all lugs and receptacles are on the machine’s curbside or rear to improve operator safety during maintenance checks. Bolt-on steel fenders allow for convenient in-field servicing, eliminating the need for welding. For added convenience, a 120-volt GFCI receptacle can be used in any voltage setting while oversized electrical lugs provide a wide range of connectability options.
Durable 15-inch tires provide long wear life and easy towing. In addition, an adjustable coupler channel enhances towing ease by allowing the trailer to be towed level to the ground.
Each generator features a power-maximizing diesel engine. The smallest unit in the Maxi-Power line, the MP25, uses a 33.3-horsepower engine and provides 20 kilowatts of prime power. The next smallest, the MP40, has a 27-horsepower engine for 30 kilowatts of prime power. The MP45 runs on a 59-horsepower engine, providing 36 kilowatts of prime power. The mid-range models are the MP65-8B1 and MP65-8C1, which feature 98- and 76-horsepower engines, respectively, and each produce 50 kilowatts of prime power. The MP125, which is only available in Canada, features a 152-horsepower engine for 100 kilowatts of prime power. The largest unit, the MP150, uses a 190-horsepower engine and produces 120 kilowatts of prime power.
