Generator Maintenance
When relying on a genset for backup power, it is essential to perform routine maintenance to ensure the generator functions properly when an interruption in power occurs. Prime power gensets are also in need of maintenance to promote long overall service life. The following article explains the necessity of proper maintenance and describes basic maintenance procedures.  Also included in the article are links to Caterpillar and Cummins customer support pages that provide information about contract maintenance programs.   To ensure a long and productive life from a genset, regular maintenance is required to make certain backup power needs are met under any condition.
Performing routine generator maintenance checks will ensure that it provides power when called upon. In addition, they can predict future problems and prevent premature failure.
