Standby (ESP) Warranty - Kubota Powered Diesel Generators

For a period of forty eight (48) months from the date of original sale or 2000 hours runtime, whichever occurs first SGEnergy warrants that its standby application generator will be free from defects in material and workmanship for the items and period set forth below. 

SGEnergy will, at its option, repair or replace any part(s) which, upon examination, inspection and testing by SGEnergy, or an Authorized/Certified SGEnergy dealer, is found to be defective. 

Any equipment that the purchaser/owner claims to be defective must be examined by the nearest Authorized/Certified SGEnergy Dealer. 

This warranty applies only to SGEnergy emergency standby generators used in "Standby" applications as SGEnergy has defined 'Standby'. Scheduled Maintenance, as outlined by the generator owner’s manual, is highly recommended. 

This Scheduled Maintenance should be performed by an Authorized/Certified SGEnergy Dealer. 

This will verify service has been performed on this unit throughout the warranty period. 

Definition of Standby (ESP) and Prime (PRP) Applications for Diesel Generators

The Engine-Generator set consists of a diesel engine and a generator mounted on a common baseframe. Upon demand, the engine will start and drives the generator to produce electrical power.

Engine-Generator sets are classified in two groups;


  • Engine-Generator sets for Prime Power (PRP) are designed for continuous operation at constant load or for time-limited continuous operation.
  • Engine-Generator sets for Standby Power (ESP) are designed to ensure power supply in the event of power blackout. They are designed for either short-term operation at variable load, or for limited continuous operation.
