I have one of these!  Came out of a motorhome, and is 4,000 watt and runs at 1,800 RPM!

Only issue I have is I need a coil for it!  It takes what is referred to as a double coil!

Seemed to run forever on 5 gallons of gas!

The coils are on E-bay often.

The 4kw onanas were used on motor homes that had only 1 rooftop air conditioner. The coils are unique, but can be had. They fire both plugs at the same time..A clutch off of a golf cart will fit the tapered crankshaft with a little lapping.

My parents had a 7500 Onan with a 3 cylinder Yanmar water cooled diesel on a motor home ..It would not carry the load until it reached operating temperature nor shut down until it cooled  below a certain temp .Very well designed .Glow plugs, it probably would have started on the North pole .
Being a 4 pole generator running at 1800 it's probably a 16 or 18 HP engine .Should be able to tell from the engine name plate by referencing the model number .
We had a little Miller welder generator with a pancake Onan .3600 RPM  for welding which was about 5 quarts of gas per hour .1800 for generation which I have no idea but it went a long time .It was an 18 HP if memory serves .,5,000 watt .

An 873 is a serious machine. For 1500.00, that is like stealing. Some would pay more than that for an 873 carcass ;D

But I'm kinda disappointed that it's not a kubota engine.
It has a Deutz in it. Are they any good?

One of our A300 Bobcats has a Deutz in it. Great engine. No antifreeze. Just oil and air for cooling. Always starts. Stingy on fuel too.

Yeah those Duetz engines are air cooled. They have a screen on them that needs to be kept clean, at least the tractor engines do.

Kbeitz there should be some kind of alarm to let you know if the belt breaks or comes off.  That or some kind of tattle tale switch to shut it off should that happen.  Without the fan turning the motor will be toast pretty quick.  Use to have a couple Liebherr 921 trackhoes.  They had the air cooled Deutz,  My ex partners little brother got one of them too hot....not good.  Banjo

Nice engines, we swapped one out a month or so ago, figure the original one was over 40 years of hard service old;

Good idea Banjo, maybe something like a tensioner type wheel riding the belt, when it drops in a switch to a dash light closes.

oil cooled  ;) mine has 10k hrs and burns no oil and the oil is still clean at 200hrs after an oil change.
for those who say "it cannot be done!" please do so quietly so as not to disturb those who are doing it.

i was actually giong to call the guy that did it last and see what he used, its due again. i was told this phenomenon has to do with being oil cooled instead of antifreeze and not being turbo charged. im pretty shure he said texas refinery so it should be rotella t (i believe shell is owned by T R. im used to losing a half gallon or so between changes in pretty much all large equipment ive maintained and black oil by 200hrs. this engine has been unbelieveable, no leaks, no burning, good power and pretty quiet.

Awesome deal.

the tires are funny. those are airless tires worn all the way through to the suspension circles. They should be at least 3" taller
I knew what I thought I meant.

Hiring a rollback can be the simplest, and relatively cheap.

We move our JD 250 with a car trailer occasionally, but it's a bit overloaded.  If you do that, block the midpoint of your ramps or they may not slide back into their "home".  Just like ours no longer do thanks to my brother.   ;)

I'm lucky. My son owns a large rollback. The junkyard is just so muddy and icy
that I'm just going to wait till things dry off a little.
