Our small yet mighty fleet of Honda putt-putts, power up a backyard bash with a couple of these little guys to get those string lights twinkling and the subs bumping. (2,000 – 7,000 watts)

If the putt-putts could grow up, you’d get these units — bring up a jobsite or get back of the house and main act going. (150 – 300 amps)

Great for small film shoots with a handful of lights, maybe a parking lot event to get the whole slew of pop-up kitchens getting the grub hot and ready. (300 – 600 amps)

Big power for the big kids shooting movies with lights brighter than the sun, major music performance, or even a quiet backup power for a small building. (1,000 – 1,400 amps)

Keep the operation of a winery going in an emergency or get a Bay Area festival bopping, and still have power to spare. (3,000 amps)

We make sure you don’t lose power during your first dance and that your tent’s AC keeps working during your summer event. We can supply power for all the vendors for your event – big or small.
