Generator prices in South Africa are not all the same, but for the better known names like Yamaha and Honda, you will pay more compared to the names that you have never heard of before. The reason for this is because with names like Honda and Yamaha you know that you are getting an excellent machine, which can be used at home, at the office or outdoors. Most generators use petrol, some work on diesel, it all depends on the type and also its size; the smaller, portable ones generally just use ordinary Lead Replacement Petrol, while the bigger industrial machines, the more expensive ones to buy, are more likely to run off diesel.
What you should do is go to the websites of the companies that you think would sell the generators that would work for you and there you can compare the generator prices in South Africa. Also, reading reviews on the machines you wish to buy will help you decide whether it would work for you or not. If you are looking for something that you could take with you wherever you think you might need it, be it outdoors while you’re camping with the family, a blackout at the office, or load shedding at home; in this case a portable generator would be best.
Portable generators are generally the smallest ones, so that you can leave them in the boot of your car and easily carry them places, but still, when you find a model that seems to work for you, you should still compare prices with other websites that have the same machine on sale. Read as many reviews on the worthy machines and when you find a model that you like, research the generator prices in South Africa of that specific model until you find the website/store that has the best offer.
