WINCO Has Struck Oil!

We have partnered with a nationally recognized oil company (we can’t say who because it normally costs more) to give you a high quality, WINCO branded, full synthetic oil. This is the same oil we put in each engine at the factory allowing you to continue using the oil we trust to keep everything running smoothly.


Part number: 300515-31
MSRP: $12.00/quart


Part number: 300515-425
MSRP: $71.00/2.5 gallons

When you add on a maintenance kit to your generator purchase, don’t forget the oil!


The New DR90

When looking through our products, you may have noticed the DR90 looks a little bit different. Well, it is. Our ongoing journey of updating and improving has brought the DR90 to a new design.


What you probably notice first is the new color. We believe the gunmetal gray looks tough and will look great next to any building. Let’s just say this Big Dog is glad we didn’t go with tan – don’t tell anyone I said that! An industrial unit should look tough.

Beyond changing the color, we narrowed the door swing and added lift out panels. This means you can plan installation closer to walls while maintaining full access for service. Speaking of the foot print, we extended the base allowing for more fuel in the tank before it has to stick out past the base. If your application will have the generator installed inside a building, you can get a DR90 in an open skid design.


Even though this is a redesign, don’t be worried that we cut back on any key components. WINCO’s generators are known for their longevity and dependability. That is because we have cultivated strong partnerships with top manufactures like FPT and Stamford. The DR90 is engineered with an FPT 4.5L, Tier III engine and an industrial Stamford generator end. Add to the mix the DSE7310 digital controller and Square D circuit breakers, you have there a fine piece of machinery. Long story short, you are getting all prime components, but the EPA only lets us sell it for standby applications.


The DR45 and DR65 are coming up next in the redesign world. These two units will share the same tanks and footprint as the DR90. How easy is that?!

Briggs & Stratton – Moving Forward

KPS Capital Partnership LP finished their purchase of Briggs & Stratton on September 22, 2020. This brings Briggs & Stratton out of Chapter 11 with a stronger, healthier balance sheet allowing the company to continue to build upon their 100+ year history. All warranties from before Chapter 11 are in full force and will be honored by the new owners.

As you know, WINCO has been building generators with the Vanguard engine on some of our most popular air-cooled generators. We value our partnership and appreciate the quality and durability of their products. We will continue manufacturing generators you depend on using these industrial engines. We love the fact that all of our Vanguard V-Twin engines are produced right here in the US!

End of Life Product Announcement

At WINCO, we are constantly engineering and updating out product line! Our latest update is on the WL18000VE. We have redesigned this Big Dog to produce 10% more power. The good news is that even though we increased the power by 10% our engineering and purchasing team have made it possible to sell the new model at the SAME price!

Before we transition to the new WL18000VE/B, we are going to sell out of the previous version first. With the increase in shipments to areas affected by storms we are going to run out of the current model a lot earlier than we anticipated. We anticipate we will run out before the end of September and apologize for the short notice.

Let’s compare the difference between the old and new models:
