Description: 3 units with very low hours: 22hrs, 47hrs, 109hrs - take all 3 for one price!
These are 15kW 400Hz generators manufactured by Hol-Gar in 1968.
The engine is a 4-cyl White Hercules D198ERX28 diesel. 24V electrics. Skids (no trailers).

Were sitting for 25 years before we got them, have been sitting in covered warehouse last 5 years, outside last 6 months.

These engines are super solid, 198ci, rated at 58hp at 2600rpm.

We started on a full refurb on one unit, cleaned and primered some of the covers, had the radiator cleaned, flushed the cooling system, added new coolant and HD oil, replaced a few hoses, new fan belt, new thermostat gasket, replaced the electric fuel pump, it started and ran but day tank switch didn't work and ran dry. Ended up purchasing larger 400Hz generators for the project so these sat.

Documentation TM 5-6115-357-15, TM 5-6115-357-35, TM 5-6115-357-34P are available from various sources, we'll provide copies we have.

#1 complete, 47hrs, fluids changed in 2013, ran. May need fuel pump bleeding and day tank switch fixed.
#2 complete, 22hrs, not tested.
#3 missing starter, 109hrs, not tested. (Have most of the starter)

400Hz generators cannot easily be converted to generate 60Hz. You can power aircraft, military equipment, resistive loads and many modern switching power supplies at 400Hz - just not 60Hz AC motors or transformer based supplies.

Price for all 3! We can forklift load.
Dimensions 33"W x 64"L x 50"H, weight is about 2250 each.

Sorry, can't break them up or disassemble here.
