Actually, I just won three MEP-016B/D (one B, two D) at Chambersburg. I have a F-350, so transport is a non issue, all three will fit. I have sufficient weight payload that I could carry two MEP-003's if they'd fit. I like the yanmar-powered stuff, as they are very simple engines, and easy to troubleshoot.One member here had a generator shipped to him to have it lost in transit. I don't believe that it was ever found. The only thing that the insurance company is going to payout, it what you paid for the set. I could have been the best deal in a life time, but Sorry Charlie, you loose.
Being that you live in PA, look for sales in Chambersburg. There are a lot of generators sold at that location.
As for transporting it home, you could rent a small open U-haul trailer for far less than a freight bill.
Maybe he's p/o at the power company. It still shouldn't have went for that much. I bought mine back in December and I paid $900. Works like a champ.Holy Cow! A MEP-003A just sold at Ft Sam for $2400! Over 1100 hours and nothing particularly pretty about it. Maybe I need to put mine up for sale if they're bringing scrap gold prices now.
And before anyone says "well maybe there was something special about it" there wasn't. I inspected it and put what I thought was a high limit bid on it and wasn't any where close.
I recently saw an MEP-026C listed as just a "3KW Generator Set, Military Standard" with no mention of the voltage.Just saw that, wow. Also noticed several 400Hz sets selling for even more money, wonder if they know what they are buying?
Steelypip, Don't use direct bury wire, trench it, and put it in PVC conduit. I don't think you'll ever regret doing it in plastic.Now I just have to get hold of 150 ft of buriable 8 or 6 ga 4 lead to run to the generator's permanent resting place.
