Both of those generators look great to me. Note the Phasor has a simple control box
with no PCB's. If the rest of the generator
is designed this way, with simplicity and field repairability in mind, then this is good. I like the stainless steel
drip tray (these always rust out on other generators). Note that it is considerably lighter than the Kohler -- why?
The Kohler is a high quality piece of gear
. These have very high quality generator
heads. I like the fact that this one has a low seawater pressure shutdown, and NMEA2000 interface.
I have an older and slightly larger version of this generator, and it has been bulletproof. It produces exceptionally clean power, and it is very quiet and smooth.
Worth looking at Northern Lights
I don't think you can go wrong with any of these. However, just one question -- do you really have space in an OI 41 for one of these? They are fairly bulky.
