For continuous or standby power applications, Yanmar offers the diesel-driven YDG Series portable power-generation unit. The smallest unit, the YDG2700, has a mass of 141 lb (64 kg) with an output of 2.5 kW (3.4 hp) and is powered by the company’s L48V6-GY series engine. The mid-size YDG3700 measures 25.6 x 19.5 x 20.9 in (650 x 495 x 530 mm) and has a mass of 181 lb (82 kg). That unit has an output of 3.7 kW (5.0 hp) and is powered by the L70V6-GY series engine. The YDG5500 is the largest unit, with a mass of 243 lb (110 kg), powered by the L100V6-GY and generating 5.5 kW (7.4 hp). All three powerplants are designed for a maximum engine speed of 3600 rpm, and an open frame structure improves handling.
