If wanting to trap at sites away from mains electricity, ALS can supply the top of the range Honda light-weight generator. So called a 'suitcase generator' due to its weight and portability. The Honda is very successful for getting you into the field well away from any mains source and will run several moth traps per generator. The Stephill SHX1000 has been re-launched in February 2015. This was a popular generator with ALS having good write up’s and very good reliability. Production was temporarily halted for several years after the Japanese Tsunami of 2011.
The Honda EU10i is the leading lightweight generator with excellent reliability - ours is currently 13 years old and running perfectly. A customer once quoted that ‘they may be expensive but they will last many years, far longer than other light-weight generators’. This we agree with, in 17 years of selling Honda generators, we have never yet had any mechanical issues still to this day. You get what you pay for said another customer. Think wisely before purchasing generators.
