Where's the cost for a 25 KW generator in Marshall-Swift???? I'm looking at page Spec-4, but it only goes to 5,000 watts. Anyone have a reliable cost source for a 25 KW?

Thanks. I've got some prices from vendors at around $8,000, but I wondered if Marshall-Swift didn't have it somewhere. CYA for the upcoming witch-hunt.

That size generator is generally for commercial use, not likely found in M&S. As I said, it depends on the installation, but the transfer switch and service entrance will add another $1,000-$1500 in hard costs as well as the electrician/permits. Not sure you'll be able to accurately estimate and be able to defend a conclusion without talking to an electrician.

Thanks again. That's a good excuse to call it a night & contact an electrician in the morning.

in the Marshal Valuation book (commerical Book) it states that for a 30kw it is 25,050 (gas) to 27,900 (diesel) but then you may need to add items like concrete pad, fence, etc...
good luck

home depot .com. Add 2k for the electrician and hope you have a LP connection.

Concrete work, and whether or not a floating slab will work versus a foundation, will be a costly factor. A friend of mine has one of these and had some hassles with the requirements for adequate ventilation space requirements for the vent pipe to be so far away from his house windows. In smaller settings there are probably setback requirements for how far back this thing has to be from the neighbors too.

Generatorjoe.com. 25KW is a BBBIIIGGG generator. That is 25,000 watts. Big enough for 5 average homes.
