Power to the peo­ple

The Weekend Post - Motoring - - USED CAR -

WHETHER you’re pre­par­ing for the cy­clone sea­son or get­ting ready for your next out­door ad­ven­ture, Braschs has a range of gen­er­a­tors to get you through safely and com­fort­ably.

Owner and man­ager Phillip Thomas says prepa­ra­tion for po­ten­tial cy­clones is para­mount – whether that in­volves pur­chas­ing a new gen­er­a­tor or mak­ing sure your cur­rent gen­er­a­tor is in good work­ing con­di­tion.

“Petrol gen­er­a­tors that are stored away and aren’t run on a reg­u­lar ba­sis af­fect the op­er­a­tion and re­li­a­bil­ity of the gen­er­a­tor,” he says.

“If they are stored dur­ing the ‘off sea­son’ with fuel left in the tank, it must ei­ther be drained out or treated with fuel ad­di­tive prior to stor­age.”

Philip has more than 20 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in the power equip­ment in­dus­try.

“I have been here through both cy­clones Larry and Yasi, sell­ing standby gen­er­a­tors through both events,” he says.

“Dur­ing cy­clone sea­son we have a large stock hold­ing of gen­er­a­tors in case of emer­gency sit­u­a­tions.”

Braschs car­ries the full range of Honda petrol-pow­ered gen­er­a­tors, in­clud­ing in­vert­ers and non-in­vert­ers, from 1 kilo­watt up to 10 kilo­watts.

Whether you’re a new per­son to the area who isn’t fully pre­pared for the cy­clone sea­son, or a busi­ness owner who needs to keep op­er­at­ing dur­ing power out­ages, the ben­e­fits of a gen­er­a­tor are un­de­ni­able.

“Com­ing up to Easter, the re­quire­ment for a camp­ing gen­er­a­tor also grows,” Philip says.

“A Honda ‘genny’ can be used for both camp­ing and cy­clone sea­son ap­pli­ca­tions.”
