Maintenance Kits & Service Parts

Maintenance Kits

Proper maintenance will help ensure you get a long and useful life from your generator.

The right parts all come in one box you
can take right to the generator. It is easy to
source, track and price.

Quality Parts
We only put the good stuff in our maintenance kits.
The filters will protect your equipment while we use
premium fully synthetic lubricants designed
specifically to give your engine the maximum
temperature range with a special focus on improved
cold starting.

Not only are the kits full of good stuff we offer it at a
fair price. You will save time and money not having to
order and source each part individually.

2020 Service School Announcement

It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that WINCO has cancelled all service schools for 2020.

Service school is something we look forward to and enjoy hosting. We enjoy meeting our partners while providing the tools and support needed to continue outstanding customer service for our end users.

As you can imagine, Service School is a hands-on training course. With our Nation still dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak we decided on the cautious approach.

Keep your eyes peeled for Service School 2021 announcements!

How Are They Used?

The manual transfer switch connects between the automatic transfer switch and the generators. When the main or permanent generator is taken out of service, you will flip the 3 position switch of the manual transfer switch to your back up generator. In the event there is a utility power failure, your facility will then get its power from your temporary generator.
