Increased demand from the events sector and film industry has led to the expansion of a dedicated range of ultra-quiet generators.

Plant equipment provider MHM has expanded its range of Event Ready generators, which now covers models from 10kva to 500kva. The units, painted in a distinctive pink livery, all feature MHM’s ultra-silenced technology, reducing noise emissions to as low as 50dBa at seven metres.

The new generators all have Stage V Kubota, Yanmar, Kohler or Iveco diesel engines and are compatible with HVO fuel. They also feature MHM’s automatic engine protection system, which shuts down the engine to prevent damage caused by issues such as low oil pressure, low fuel and high engine temperature.

Other standard features include a three-way fuel valve, 12V battery isolator switch to minimise the risk of a flat battery and a fully bunded base to prevent fuel leaks or spillages. Transport is made easier thanks to an integrated lifting eye and forklift pockets. Designed with the UK and Ireland hire markets in mind, the Event Ready generators also feature an engine oil drain pump to reduce service time.

“Demand has soared for the Event Ready range,” explained MHM Group Sales Director, Brad Ireland. “Our customers tell us they like these machines because they are user-friendly, durable and reliable. It was important to us to keep all the key benefits of our standard products while making them as quiet as possible.

“It is great to see the UK and Ireland opening up fully after COVID and there is huge pent-up demand for outdoor events. We’re delighted to be helping to power these events with generators that can reduce both noise and fuel emissions.”
