The Green Mountain Generator Refurbishment Program Includes The Following:

All of the below items are inspected and replaced as needed with new, used, or rebuilt parts.  Cosmetic defects (small dents, scratches, chipping paint, light rust) are to be expected unless the unit has been repainted (then only small dents are to be expected).  We offer 100% parts-complete and 100% functionality-complete units.  The following checklist is used for all generators we sell and some items might not be relevant to smaller units.  If you are interested in having your unit painted, please contact us. The price for repainting is $200 and the unit must be prepaid in full beforehand. Note that we no longer include new batteries as this drives up shipping costs with weight and with hazmat status. GMG will help ensure you purchase the correct batteries for your unit. Please contact us if you have any additional questions regarding the GMG Refurbishment Program.

    • 120/208V, 3 PHASE

What is a load bank test?:

A load bank is a device which develops an electrical load, applies the load to an electrical power source and converts or dissipates the resultant power output of the source.  The purpose of a load bank is to accurately mimic the operational or “real” load that a power source will see in actual application. However, unlike the “real” load, which is likely to be dispersed, unpredictable and random in value, a load bank provides a contained, organized and fully controllable load.  Consequently, a load bank can be further defined as a self-contained, unitized, systematic device that includes load elements with control and accessory devices required for operation.  Whereas the “real” load is served by the power source and uses the energy output of the source for some productive purpose, the load bank serves the power source, using its energy output to test, support or protect the power source.

Our load bank tests are state-of-the-art and absolutely critical to ensure that all systems are working properly on our units.  This includes all engine and generator components while under extreme loads.  Engine oil pressure, voltage regulation, fuel regulation, and all control board operations are checked to ensure proper working conditions under various and variable loads.  This process takes time, thought and expertise that Green Mountain Generator prides itself on.  We have partnered with the nation’s best remanufacture/refurbisher of these particular units.  Our inspection and quality are the best in the industry!  Our prices might be slightly higher than others, but our process, thoroughness and after-purchase parts and support are the best in the industry.  You can expect years of quality and dependable power.

    We are located in Southern Vermont, but our refurbishment facility is near Swanzey, NH (about 35 minutes away).

    Why do you want to trade a good running unit? What is wrong with it? We would only purchase units that are local and that we can look at and review.

    Will you trade a running, and working MEP002A, or MEP003A for a refurbished MEP002A, or MEP003A

    Time and materials is the only way we work on generators. $75/hour plus parts. Freight shipping to and from us varies depending on wherever you are located. If you can bring your unit to our refurbishment center and pick it up, that is ideal. Otherwise, you are looking at $500-600 minimum round-trip for freight only.

    GMG typically only refurbs our own units as shipping costs are high. If you want to have us refurb your unit, costs start at $1100, and does not include major parts like injection pumps, voltage regulators or engine rebuilds. If you would like us to swap out your old engine and pump and make your unit like new, we can do that for around $2200 plus shipping. We install a remanufactured engine and pump – essentially a brand new engine and injection pump.

    We are always tweaking our refurbishment program to offer the #1, most complete, and most thorough refurbishment program. No refurbishment program can be complete without a detailed Load Bank Test. Every unit we ship across the US is tested thoroughly on a Load Bank. STAY AWAY FROM ANY GENERATOR THAT IS NOT LOAD BANK TESTED. It may run and it may generate electricity (as seen on the meter), but under sustained load, the engine may lose oil pressure, the generator head may overheat and the injector pump could be mis-timed. Do not simply look for a ‘running’ unit.
