Customer questions about this product

Can this product be shipped to California?

Because this product is not approved by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), it is not available to be shipped to establishments located in the state of California.

My business is at a high elevation; does this change anything when utilizing a Simpson gas-powered generator?

These units will maintain proper engine performance and emission standards when operated below an altitude of 5,000 feet. If operated above this elevation, the unit will require a high-altitude carburetor kit to prevent changes in fuel efficiency and performance. Sometimes we can special order from the manufacturer and have your equipment delivered ready-to-go, but in cases where your unit is in stock and waiting to ship, you’ll need to have a qualified service technician come to your location and alter your unit at the time of installation so that it is compatible with a higher elevation. Contact our Special Orders team prior to placing your order, and we will let you know what will work best for the equipment you are planning to purchase.
