Tough Generators - For Tough Customers

  • Guaranteed to outlast perform all traditional generators!
  • Assembled in Canada using American made Perkins Engines
  • Custom Built by hand, not on an assembly line. 
  • Complete customer satisfaction.


Small footprint, big power. Many of our customers want to power their homes during an outage but don't need to use heavy appliances until power is restored. This generator does just that and has enough reserve should you wish to use some heavy devices it is possible with some basic power conservation.

This Aurora diesel generator is powered by a compact Perkins, liquid cooled, two cylinder engine. It offers the same long life and durability we have come to expect from larger standby generators. We used the best controller, alternator, battery, muffler, stainless steel hardware, wires, insulation and electrical component we could. We made it so tough and told our customers all the great things about it. They then asked us, “why is it still just a one year warranty?” That’s when we decided to eliminate all possible objections and double it. Today, our warranty is more than double what any other generator company has for the same class generator, its FIVE years!

There is no longer lasting gasoline, natural gas or propane generator that can compare. When you compare fuel and replacement costs of running a diesel generator to other types of generators, diesel is the least expensive and the most reliable option


  • Engine - Small engine with the same exceptional performance and long life as the larger Perkins engines. This liquid cooled, three cylinder, 1.1 litre engine is suitable for both prime and standby power use. Enjoy fewer oil, air and fuel filter changes (every 500 hours depending on load factor). The low fuel consumption and ultra-compact engine offers all the customer benefits experienced from larger engine sizes. The engine has a proven record for hard working reliability in transport truck auxiliary power units to refrigeration units

  • Generator Alternator

    Aurora industrial class alternators are highly reliable and produce clean, stable power even in harsh conditions. Automatic Voltage Regulated to 1% precision. The alternator is brushless and requires no maintenance. The generator head is direct driven by a heavy engine flywheel. The large rotating mass helps to reduce fluctuations in power when heavy loads are applied.

  • Fuel tank

    Integrated generator fuel tank helps to simplify installation and reduce generator footprint. Fuel tank uses a mechanical fuel gauge for quick checks between usage and a second electronic gauge. The electronic gauge is monitored and fuel levels are displayed by the generator controller. Alerts are shown when fuel level is low and a safety shut down occurs before it is empty. This feature helps reduce downtime or service calls by preventing the engine from running dry.

  • Digital Generator

    Clear generator instrumentation, protection, and control. 150 event logging, fuel level display and alarm, maintenance and exercise clock, and much more. The controller is built to withstand severe duty, extreme shock, and vibration. Easy to use and configure via front panel buttons. Can be used manually or with fully automatic starting with a transfer switch or wireless remote control. Accepts additional customer sensors and switched outputs.

  • Preheating & Post-heating

    Pre and Post glow plug heating phases are used in this generator. Preheating helps with the initial starting. Post-heating is used after the engine has started to help reduce false starts, rough idling, lower start-up emissions and warm up your engine faster. False starts are detected and automatic recovery will restart if necessary. If required, this feature makes automatic starting simple.

  • Maintenance and Exercise Clock

    It is easy to lose track of how long your generator has been running without it. The maintenance clock keeps track of your run time and is set to remind you when it is time to do an oil change. The exercise clock is also programmable as is the low battery voltage detection that can also trigger an exercise cycle if desired

  • Acoustical Sound Enclosure

    Weather resistant enclosure is constructed out of galvanized steel and assembled with high strength stainless steel fasteners. Tough powder coated finish, acoustic sound insulation and chrome lockable doors are just some of the great features. Neutral gray color is cosmetically appealing and easy to care for.

  • “Canada Proof Battery”

    Canadian Energy commercial battery is built to withstand severe duty, perform in the toughest conditions, and endure repeated shock and vibration.

  • Engine Warranty

    Perkins engines come with a two-year or 3,000-hour warranty

  • Generator Warranty

    Aurora Generators come with a five-year limited warranty.

  • Beyond The Standard Engine Warranty

Up to 100% components covered, transfer coverage to a new owner adding value to your generator if you wish to sell it and you can buy the extended coverage anytime before your standard warranty coverage expires.
