That size generator, especially in three phase, to be man handled by two guys might be impossible to find.

You might want to talk to Caterpillar, Kohler, Generac, Winco, MultiQuip, Honda, etc. Those are big and pretty heavy units.

I second Tom's Recommendation. If you got the generator from Europe...where will it be serviced? I know they make quality products, but the big boys in this field in the U.S. will be more than glad to talk with you and tell you what you need to hear, not want to. Should they have one or one can be built to your Specs, you will know the exact cost, warranty, and where it will be serviced. Ron
