Default Generator isolator / air bags

Do any of you have, or have installed the air inflated isolators for your generator? I am looking for the source to obtain them.

Thanks

Richard

Richard,

I noticed that there were no responses to your question.

This may not help you, as I am not familiar with air isolators on a generator.

But I replace the rubber vibrations isolators ( motor mounts) on our Onan generator, because the old isolators were hard, flattened, and I was trying to reduce vibration and noise, I do not know if this helped, But the new isolators were a more flexible and thicker rubber.
And newer must be better

i have seen generators mounted on air bags,and i'm sure it works great.
Unless they leak air,then what do you do?

I saw a genset mounted on air bags recently. When the air was down the engine wobbled around like it was going to fall out of the bus. When the air was up it seemed more secure. Typically, except when driving, and running the generator you do not have air unless you use an aux air compressor. Mine is mounted on rubber mounts.

Richard,i'm guessing since you have a newell you have an aux compressor for the air leveling system,so the possible small air leaks will not be a problem for you.
I would call Powertech about the air bags,i know i have seen them on coachs and i'm sure the blood bank busses must have air ride gennies.

Default Genny air springs.

Frank, I put the OEM elastomeric mounts back under my Powertech Genny in my '91 WLWB..They are smoother than the cracked ones I had.
I live about 15 miles south of you if you need any help.

Thanks Randy and Bob for the response, I will pursue these options. Also thanks Bob for the info on another bird nearby, we'll have to swap war stories and maybe help each other out!
