I've been trying to think of a low fuel consumption way of running a PTO generator. They are low cost, high output, and some need as little as 16 HP (though I've seen others that need up to 30-50 and higher) and only need about 540 shaft rpm. Since it is a low-speed set up I was hoping that this would be something that a listeroid can or could be made to handle. If so I think this would a an incredible set up, of course for sensitive electronics you would want to run the juice through a good power conditioner (I like TripLite personally). Opinions? Options? Personal experience?

Ask this same question over here and you will get responses from many people that are specialist in not only Listeroids/listers but generators and electricity. My opinion is that if you want (or are looking into) to the listeroid route it would be simpler to go with a conventional generator head such as a chinese ST-5 head like I have on mine. Sheaves are already availible in the correct size. No need to reinvent the wheel. It is enough trouble to fab up the whole setup.

Where is the best place to buy one of these nowadays? The .gov has put EPA controls on new imports from what I've read.
