Paving the Way – Phase 1

As we continue to create generators that make your life easier, we also invest in our company to make it easier for our employees. We have started working on our parking lot. If you’ve visited us before, you probably thought, “They really need parking stripes!” You see, the parking lot has become half gravel and half pavement. It is very uncomfortable on my paws when I have to walk across it to get to the grass.

Phase 1: Sidewalks

We added sidewalks and an outdoor break area around the building.

Stay tuned for Phase 2!


Finding Parts is Easy

We have worked hard to make our website a better experience for our dealers and service centers. We want it to be easy to get the information you need.

Need to find a model number?

We have a couple of ways to find a model number:

Every WINCO generator has a nameplate affixed to it. You can find your model plus other important information about the generator on the nameplate.

Under the Service Support tab, select Generator Support. Choose ‘Browse Archived Products’ to search through our products. You can download parts list from the model’s product page.

Ready to order? Or if you have any questions, call our Parts Department at 507-357-6831, press 1 when prompted.


Prime Power in Gasoline

We have always built great commercial grade portable generators fueled by gasoline. Currently our air-cooled models can supply up to 19kw in both single and three phase voltages. We regularly get asked for more power and engines that last longer and run 1800 rpm.

When we say we listen, we mean it. We are excited to add to our liquid-cooled family of generators a gasoline, prime-power certified option. Our new PPG28 provides 30% more power than our biggest air-cooled generators. Operating at 1800 RPM it is a great investment for for commercial users that need a serious generator to keep their business running. Check out the table below for reasons you should consider the new PPG28 for your business.
