Don't confuse a belligerent and aggressive attitude with the strength, training, and conditioning needed to prevail in a fight. How do you know you have the Will To Win, if you don't even have the will to train?

PPLLLBBBBBB!... I wave my private parts at both Cat & Cummins...Kubota rules the world of generators! :rofl:


In the oil patch Onan generators are said to named after Onan because if you own one you are engaging in self abuse. Their reputation as boat anchors is legendary.

I have seen more generators powered by 71 series DD in the oil patch than I have any other engine.

2-71, 3-71, 4-71 and 6-71 power heads on generators down here are still ubiquitous on push boats and work barges.

The 6-71 is an old design that was used extensively in WW-2. It is likely to be around for as long as MTU makes series 71 parts available to rebuild them.

How much would it cost in the future to have a second host? In Seattle? Or Salt Lake City?

Two is usually twice as much as one.
