I have a family in Anguilla, BWI that is looking for a 30, 40, 50,000 watt 4 cylinder diesel engine. the Island was demolished and if he had the generator, he could help a lot of people! I can't find one on line since I live in Florida and we were hit pretty bad. Can you please help?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I have an address to send it Tropicale in Miami and they could ship the generator down to Anguilla - 12 miles off St. Maarten.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Hopefully, it would be a good used generator - thanks again -

The budget is between $5,000 - $8,000 - maybe a little more but not much - these people lost everything and I am so upset that I cannot locate a 4cylinder 30, 40, 50,000 watt diesel generator. Is there anything else you can suggest? Pleeeeeeaaaase?

have you checked the ones at gov planet they are dirt cheap?
