The YG4000D Generator from Yamaha

Whether it's a worm drive saw or three-quarter-inch drill, every jobsite has its own set of tools and needs, which makes versatile, portable power a must. Luckily, the Yamaha YG4000D generator offers versatility and high-power in a quiet, compact package.

At just 132 pounds, 6.0 cubic feet and 69 decibels, the YG4000D is lighter, smaller and quieter than its competition. But, that small size doesn't mean a loss of power. The YG4000D's 4-stroke OHV, 251cc engine produces 8.5 horsepower. The maximum output of 4000 watts and convenience of full power-full time 120/240 volts means your power needs are met in this handy package.

"The YG4000D is small enough to move around while still offering maximum power, and it's quiet, making it suitable for any work environment," said Jerry Nadeau, Yamaha Power Equipment division manager. "And it's as tough and dependable as it is powerful."

Even with all the performance features, durability and ease-of-use were not lost on the YG4000D. The generator sports a cast iron cylinder liner that provides consistent performance during continuous use and the brushless alternator means no maintenance and years of worry-free service. The Oil Watch warning system lets you know when it's time to add oil, preventing engine damage and costly repairs. And, the auto decompression system and transistor controlled ignition ensures fast, easy starting and reliable operation.

The engine's unique combustion chamber enables the OHV engine to perform at its peak and improves engine efficiency. In addition, the generator is fitted with an extra large fuel tank and features economy idle. These features, combined with the already fuel-efficient engine, enable it to run continuously for more than 11 hours.

The YG4000D has a MSRP of $2,099 and is covered by a one-year factory warranty. For the location of the nearest dealer, as well as information on Yamaha's extensive line of quiet and dependable portable generators and pumps, visit www.yamaha-motor.com.
