Product Description

When the need arises for supplemental power, nothing takes the place of dependability. That’s why the Yanmar Final Tier IV Certified YDG5500W diesel generator has the support of working professionals everywhere.  This generator offers great durability, low vibration, quiet operation, and both recoil and electric starting.  An open frame configuration means it’s easy to handle and store when not in use.


Versatile PowerYDG5500

An AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) gives low-fluctuation power delivery at a selection of voltages from 110V to 240V.  This model also makes available 12V D.C.

Dusk-to-Dawn Operation Without Fill-Up: The YDG-S

A single tankful of diesel will keep these air-cooled gensets on the go for 6~15 hours.  The secret to such long operation is their low fuel consumption from features like direct injection, a major feat for this type of compact engine.  These gensets give savings with every tankful of diesel.  They have a utility-size fuel tank, so you can leave them running all night.

Total Carry-Around Convenience

The extra-lightweight YDG is as easy to move around as most gasoline units. And it’s easy to store too.  This is achieved by linking together the small air-cooled diesel with a highly compact and light U-frame generator.  The size and weight trimming allows you to take these ‘open-type’ sets anywhere.

Peaceful Power: The YDG

Engine and generator rest on inclined rubber blocks.  This improved mounting system takes away both vertical and horizontal vibrations, leaving you with a smoothly purring engine.  Noise prevention measures are taken at several levels: at intake, in the combustion system and through the well muffled exhaust system.

Safety Shutdown

The chance of damage due to low oil level operation is reduced with a Yanmar genset.  An alarm is activated and the engine stops as soon as the oil falls low.  Besides, the outlets on the control panel are recessed and the muffler is enclosed with a cover.

Recoil Starter – ElYDG5500_2ectric Start

With a short 70cm stroke of a recoil starter, the engine jumps into life.  Auto-return decompression makes starling easier and quick even when the temperature is low.  Units are available with standard recoil and electric starting.

Easy Maintenance, Long Lasting

Fewer parts mean fewer maintenance worries-inspection is easy and adjustments simple.  Pressure lubrication feeds oil to vital parts, and high quality materials give first-class durability.
