Yanmar YDG5500 5.5kW Diesel Generator YDG-W 5500

When the need arises for supplemental power, nothing takes the place of dependability. That’s why our FT4 Certified YDG-W series has the support of working professionals everywhere. This diesel powered generator line is produced in two versions to accommodate the most common applications. Both offer great durability, low vibration, quiet operation, and recoil or electric starting. An open frame configuration means it’s easy to handle and store when not in use.

  • Versatile Power

    An AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) gives low-fluctuation power delivery at a selection of voltages from 110V to 240V. Each model also makes available 12V D.C.-really useful for charging car/boat batteries.

    Dusk-to-Dawn Operation Without Fill-Up: The YDG-S

    A single tankful of diesel will keep these air-cooled gensets on the go for 6~15 hours. The secret to such long operation is their low fuel consumption from features like direct injection, a major feat for this type of compact engine. These gensets give savings with every tankful of diesel. They have a utility-size fuel tank, so you can leave them running all night.

    Total Carry-Around Convenience

    The extra-lightweight YDG is as easy to move around as most gasoline units. And it’s easy to store too. We’ve achieved it by linking together our small air-cooled diesel (the YANMAR L-A type) with a highly compact and light U-frame generator. The size and weight trimming allows you to take these ‘open-type’ sets anywhere.

    Peaceful Power: The YDG

    Engine and generator rest on inclined rubber blocks. This improved mounting system takes away both vertical and horizontal vibrations, leaving you with a smoothly purring engine. Noise prevention measures are taken at several levels: at intake, in the combustion system and through the well muffled exhaust system.

    Safety Shutdown

    The chance of damage due to low oil level operation is reduced with a Yanmar genset. An alarm is activated and the engine stops as soon as the oil falls low. Besides, the outlets on the control panel are recessed and the muffler is enclosed with a cover.

    Recoil Starter - Electric Start

    With a short 70cm stroke of a recoil starter, the engine jumps into life. Auto-return decompression makes starling easier and quick even when the temperature is low. Units are available with standard or electric starting.

    Easy Maintenance, Long Lasting

    Fewer parts mean fewer maintenance worries-inspection is easy and adjustments simple. Pressure lubrication feeds oil to vital parts, and high quality materials give first-class durability.
