Lister 3 cylinder diesel generator for sale 26.5kVA
« on: May 31, 2022, 06:17:09 PM »
As per title, a friend has this diesel generator for sale.

Location is Somerset UK. Collection only. Total weight about a tonne I would estimate.

Lister HR3 3 cylinder air cooled engine with Stamford 26.25kVA 3 phase 380/220V alternator. Anti vibration mounts onto steel skids.
24Volt engine electrical system with vehicle type alternator. Batteries are not included in sale.
Fuel lift pump to raise diesel out of a tank.
Stainless exhaust flexible connector.
Push button electric start/push button stop. Also hand crank.
Control panel with 3 phase circuit breaker.
Date code appears to be 1960 no, I got that wrong. It's 1990. Used in an Irish Railways carriage and always kept inside the carriage under cover.

We hooked up a battery to it yesterday and it started on the button even though the battery was only 12 volts.
Here's a link to a video of the unit starting and running on 30 May 2022 the starter sounds sluggish because it was only a 12V battery.

This appears to be a cracking bit of kit which hasn't been mucked about with.

1500 GBP
