I don't recommend them at all. What I received from them was not what was promised. The photos they sent were not of the engine I received even though they said it was. Parts had been recently removed. I paid way too much for what I got.
I would recommend a generator of the right type and size to do the job.
Paralleling two 804s then using them as single phase is not optimal. If you go with the advised derating you will be around 16kw continuous out of two generators. I'm sure you can find a civilian generator in the 20kw...
Before you do anything else get the top off of it and inspect the entire area behind that switch. A missing knob and screws are big red flags.
Also the quad fuse is a modification that was performed later to protect the exciter windings from damage in case the voltage regulator fails. Later...
I got about 50lbs of rice in the house and a yard full of MEPs. We should be good.
