The omit to tell you the fuel consumption of these big generators.....

A single two hour stint can cost you upward of R75

People who can't produce enough electricity want to tell others how to produce enough....pffft.

10. Does the generator need to be grounded?
Follow the instructions in the owner's manual. If the manual calls for grounding the generator, that's relatively easy to do. One simple way is to run a 12-gauge ground wire from the grounding terminal on the generator to a copper ground rod you've driven into the soil next to the generator. (The generator will have a grounding terminal symbol to help you identify the terminal's location.)

Which Yank consultant got the contract to draw up this pamphlet, and more importantly haw much of our money were they [over]paid?

Eskom has published guidelines on which generators people must buy in South Africa

A sad state of affairs when a power generating utility is advising such.In not so many words they are admitting that they have failed.*sigh*

For once I am speechless.

I just do not know what to say about this sad state of affairs.
