Trailer Mounted

 For auction is a Cummins/Onan 80kW diesel powered generator/power pack

Late '90's unit has a Cummins 6BT 5.9 engine attached to an Onan 80DGDA generator. It is mounted to a 20' ISO flatrack for transport by truck, rail, or ship. The power pack has a ~750 gallon diesel tank, 3 ESL circuit breaker protected switched plugs, and 3 200' power cable reels. The unit is set up to run at 460V, 60Hz, 3 phase power, but can be changed to several different configurations--search for the generator manuals online or call Onan to find out more. The plugs are set up to mate with the 3 pole, 4 wire plugs that are common to the intermodal reefer industry (I can sell you plugs to match these receptacles for $10 each).

The unit runs great. It has been load tested on 6 reefers at one time and runs them all fine. All the receptacles and reels work. I have not measured the length of 10/4 SO cable on the reels. I actually have 5 of these units available, so if you need more than one please let me know. I will let the winning bidder choose the one they want--the hours vary but are all well used (and well maintained) units. Units are located in Jacksonville, FL. We can deliver them anywhere within 300 miles for $1.75 per mile, round trip. Preview them M-F from 8-5. You can also send in a surveyor to check the units if you are from out of the area.

These units were used to power reefers on the railroad between the west coast and central US. They were serviced each trip and maintained well, they just saw lots of use. They were retired from service because of the cost of maintenance every trip and replaced with individual gensets for each reefer. All have at least several thousand hours on them, but there's no reason with proper maintenance they would have any problems. I'd rather buy a diesel engine that was used consistently and serviced properly for 10,000 hours than one with 500 that sits for a year between every run like most generators.

I'm too busy to strip them to sell for parts, but here's my conservative estimate of what each part should fetch if sold separately:
Operational Cummins 6BT 5.9 engine--$2000-$3000
Good order used 80kW generator end--$1500-$2000
ESL reefer receptacles--$150 each ($450 total)
3 phase cable reels--$500 each ($1500 total)
approximately 100' of 10/4 SO cable on each reel--$150 each ($450 total)
750 gallon fuel tank--$500
20' ISO flat rack--$1500 (at the very least there's 7000 lbs of steel scrap there at $.12/lb it's $840)

That's a total of $7900-9400 for liquidated value, so that's about where we start for the auction. Happy Bidding.
