The new YDG generator line, which is manufactured entirely in Europe, comprises two YDG3700 and two YDG5500 series models that incorporate a recoil start-up method. 

Each of the models is also available in an electric starter version and is equipped with Yanmar’s air-cooled L-type engines, which provide power outputs ranging between 3.3 and 5.8kVA depending on the specific model.

The Stage-V compliant diesel engines, which incorporate a micro-sized fuel injection system, are said to ensure low fuel consumption. 

Carlo Giudici, Sales & Marketing Director at Yanmar Europe, said, “These upgraded and precision engineered models are brand new entrants into the European market and are established yet meticulously advanced generators which meet all global emissions standards and incorporate cutting edge components.

“As the generators are now made in Italy this also means that the many loyal customers of the YDG Series can look forward to a much shorter ordering process for new units.”

Described by Yanmar as robust and reliable, other key features of the Stage V generators include a low-noise output measured at 81dB, pollution and waterproof control panel sockets, stainless steel top covers and automatic low oil shutdown protection.

The generators are also compactly sized, with the units measuring just 720mm long, 578mm high and 480mm wide.

“The upgraded YDG Series of generators is especially quiet and come in a versatile power range to meet many required outputs. Also, due to their very low fuel consumption, the generators can be used at full capacity for up to 10.5 hours.

“Furthermore, Yanmar Europe, headquartered in The Netherlands, has taken over the sales of YDG products for Europe, Russia, Middle-East and Africa and as we also have a comprehensive parts center near Amsterdam customers will be assured that Yanmar will provide reliable and fast back-up service and parts. We are also sourcing more European components.”
