Storms, camping, events, construction...there's a myriad of reasons people purchase portable generators brisbane. And in Australia, nowhere are the reasons more diverse than in Brisbane. In fact, they are probably as varied as the different types of portable generators on the market.
Here are the top 5 reasons to buy a Portable Generator in Brisbane:
1. Prepare for extreme weather
In Brisbane, power outages are increasingly a fact of life. From storms to floods, cyclones to extreme heatwaves, Brisbane has had it all in the past couple of years. And with every natural disaster comes another power outage. Every time a natural disaster is forecast, people rush out to buy all the portable generators Brisbane has. In some cases, the power outage may last for days or even weeks. A portable generator provides people with a way to keep their food fresh and appliances powered up. During the Queensland floods, portable generators kept the water pumps running so people could try and salvage whatever they could from their homes. When it comes to portable generators Brisbane residents are always prepared. This quick video looks at one of the more popular portable generator backup options, the Yamaha EF2800i:
2. Powerful Adventures
It's not all doom and gloom in Brisbane. And the weather certainly doesn't stop Brisbane residents from enjoying their glorious surroundings - especially when Brisbane is the gateway to the Gold and Sunshine Coasts. As people pack up their car for camping trips, caravanning, 4WD touring, fishing etc, a portable generator is often amongst the kit. After all, camping does not have to be a primitive experience; a portable electric generator can bring some of the conveniences of home to a rustic campsite without a power hook-up.

There's no doubting the appeal of a fresh produce market and Brisbane is becoming a real market town. Probably the most famous of Brisbane's farmers markets are Jan Power's Farmers Markets, where people can get fresh produce from a wide variety of producers, including meat, fish, poultry, and bread, as well the occasional sweet treat, coffee or sausage sizzle. And behind every good Brisbane market is a portable generator keeping the stalls powered up. Our best suited portable generator for mobile food vans and Coffee Carts is the Yamaha EF6300iSE
