Because he depended on a Power Take Off (PTO) generator – poor guy!
Power Take Off generators sound like a good idea. When the power goes out on your farm, PTO generators are powered by a tractor.
Of course, the power doesn’t kick in automatically. Someone needs to rush out to the tractor and hook up the PTO….which mean dinner in town on a Saturday night isn’t feasible. Depending on the outside temperature and the age of the birds, there are only minutes to spare until the temperatures affect the birds…
Another disadvantage is that a PTO doesn’t generate clean power. It makes power, but not with a steady flow of electricity. This is can be harmful to motors and electronics like the ones on your fans and farm alarms. And that’s not the kind of power your sensitive equipment needs.
There’s got to be a better way! It’s called a standby generator, and it could change everything. Let the folks at Palmer Generator show you how. Many poultry farmers like you have been provided with standby power by Palmer for years and couldn’t be more satisfied.
If you give us a call, one of our staff members can assess your farm and show you which agricultural generator can meet your needs.
