Air compressorAir Compressors are commonly used around the house for all sorts of DIY tasks. All sorts of things like stapling or using a nail gun, maybe you need to inflate your car tyres, do some air brush painting or drill a few holes in the wall?

If you need to do any of the above then you will find an air compressor can really help with the job!

You will not use the air compressor to use more than one tool at a time, and large volumes of air will not be required, so a small air compressor from Warrior Power Products would be ideal for the job.

If you are a DIY Fanatic or a Handy Man Extraordinaire then Warrior Power Products would recommend a smaller air compressor unit for you, as larger air compressors will require a substantial ampage supply of electricity.

The great thing about the smaller air compressors is that they are easy to manoeuvre with wheels and handles to assist.

It is important to bear in mind that a high initial current supply is required to start up the machine; sadly longer cables can reduce the capacity to supply sufficient power, so be cautious when choosing the air compressor for your needs.

If you are unsure of the right air compressor for you then why not call Warrior Power Products and see how they can help!


FI-stormy-weatherWind, rain, snow … whatever the weather, be prepared.

The future is unpredictable and with the latest swarm of rain and floods across the nation, there is no time like the present to be prepared for the worse. I don’t mean you should go crazy by locking your doors and stocking up at the supermarket. I simply mean you should prepare for the cold of the winter nights by having a plan B.

That plan B is a generator. Hospitals, dairy operations and businesses that bank on 100% reliability all have standby generators that kick in the moment utility power drops out. The same could happen with your home, and whether the rain or even snow decides to ruin your utilities then you don’t have to suffer.

If you can afford a permanent home power plant at your home when problem strikes then you don’t need to worry but if like most, you find that expensive there is an alternative. A portable generator sized to your needs can provide effective and reliable insurance against everything from inconvenience to sheer disaster.

The weather can quite easily and unexpectedly affect your home and the simplest things, such as warmth and light, can be taken away from you. But with a generator, either petrol or diesel, you won’t have to worry about being left in the dark.

When choosing your generator even less obvious factors are important: Quiet operation, fuel consumption, running time per full tank, and working weight are all significant when you’re faced with actually using the tool. So you’ll want one that ticks all the boxes and is can be relied on.

There are many generators on the market and a lot can be used either at home or for work purposes but it is important you get one that is adequate enough to do the job you need it for. One example is the 3.2Kva Petrol Generator that can be used pretty much anywhere and would more than do the job when the weather decides it’s your houses turn to suffer a utilities drop out. It’s portable, easy to use and reliable. To top it off it’s got a lot lower noise than many other generators so you can still watch your favourite film in peace.

Constructing-A-Homemade-GeneratorA Scottish man has been accused of “recklessly producing household electricity” with a bizarre home-made generator at his home in Dundee.

Charles McKenzie is alleged to have created a “dangerous transformer assembly” at his flat in Dundee’s Dudhope Court to generate power.

Mr McKenzie, 55, did not show his face at Dundee Sheriff Court to undergo the charge of culpable and reckless conduct.

Sheriff George Way carried on the case without plea for a number of weeks. The charge alleges Mr McKenzie “culpably and recklessly” produced electricity through a home-made generator “with total disregard for the safety of yourself and others”.

Sheriff Way asked: “I don’t quite understand – how does one culpably and recklessly produce electricity?”

Fiscal depute Laura Bruce said: “The Crown’s position is that he had this man-made assembly in his house suspended from the ceiling by thin ropes. There was a car battery and cans of petrol nearby.”

What Mr McKenzie obviously didn’t know is that he can get a generator suitable for his home without breaking the bank. The home-made generator can’t have been safe and healthy. The generators that are professionally built are safe, don’t destroy the environment and won’t annoy the neighbours.

The 5.5Kva Silent Diesel Generator is a perfect example of this. It is made by one of the world’s leading diesel generator companies, so you know it’s going to be well made. The generator has a steady motor speed with excellent foremissions which in turn gives an environmentally friendly generator along with a low noise. Its heavy-duty industrial frame design provides full protection and aids portability. The generator is also suitable for running power tools and lighting units etc. so it’s perfect for use in your home.

So the next time you think about making your own generator like Mr McKenzie did, I suggest you think again.

A lot of the generators of today come with less noisy motors and are environmentally friendly, which is great and means your children can play and you don’t have to worry about all those hidden nasties.
