During World War II, the Dynamotor was developed and used in military aircraft and ships. After the war, the Dynamotor became the basis for the two bearing generator know today as the 2FS which is still sold in large quantities for pressure washers and man lift applications. Wincharger continued to expand its product line by initiating new designs of Dynamotors, inverters, alternators, Winchargers, engine-driven generators, transistorized converters, ground electrical support equipment and radio receiving sets.
In 1950, the Winco line of Power Take Off (PTO) generators was born. This line of generators was designed to run off of the power takeoff drive of a tractor. A complete line of portable engine-driven generators was introduced for commercial and industrial applications in 1952. Research and development continued to produce important innovations. In 1955, their company introduced the first automatic idle control (conserver) for portable generators. Extended engine life, fuel conservation and reduced noise were all-important benefits to be derived from their invention which has set an industry standard for portable generators.
The Maxi-Watt and Full-Power generator designs were introduced in 1964. These designs vastly improved performance in heavy-duty motor starting applications and provided usable full capacity output at 120 volts, 240 volts, or both simultaneously. In 1970, their company introduced the Winco Automatic Power Systems - a complete line of packaged standby generators. Key to their success of the packaged standby generator was the Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS). The ATS made it possible to automatically start their standby generator when normal electrical power was interrupted.
By the mid seventies, Winco had become a major supplier of generators to the rental and construction markets. In 1978, Winco began producing water-cooled generators. In the same year, Winco developed the first switchable voltage Mobile Power System to supply temporary and emergency power needs in the construction, industrial and government markets.
In 2000, a number of new Packaged Standby Systems were developed as well as some redesigns of existing models. In this new decade, Winco is looking forward to a number of new products and innovations.
Today, Winco customers continue to benefit from their 75 years of generator experience. Recent additions to their line-up include their new 10 & 12 KW Honda powered Home Standby systems, a rugged and powerful 12 KW portable model for the Construction and Roofing Market and a new 6KW Tri-Fuel portable for Home Standby that runs on gasoline, LP or natural gas. Across the board they are incorporating new technology to provide the cleanest and most reliable power in the industry. Winco generators are built with pride and their primary mission is quality.
Winco 6000 Tri Fuel Generator
Richard from Bergen County, NJ– Verified Buyer
I purchased it a year ago. Just got through 9 straight days of no power due to hurricane Sandy. Worked perfectly. Ran on gasoline the first 4 days. Gasoline became impossible to find so I switched to natural gas. Ran 5 days on natural gas. I used the 30 amp 120/240 connection to a Reliance inlet/10 circuit box. I did some prep work ahead of time to have a 1/2" gas pipe available outside. Highly recommend this generator.
Nice Package: Simple and Flexible
calmazz from Oxnard, Ca.– Verified Buyer
Gets the job done, super simple to operate and easy to start. With the wheel set, it's a bit challenging to hook up the NG or LP due to tight space between the wheel and the gas intake connection. The intake should be angled to allow connection from top. It's on the noisy side for home use in an area without much property, but price combined with the Tri-Fuel option makes it worth it. Competing quiet sets are double price.
Winco tri-fuel generator
Kenneth from Peoria, AZ– Verified Buyer
Haven't had a power outage yet, for the acid test, but I'm pretty optimistic this generator will do the trick.
Jim from Prescott, AZ– Verified Buyer
I have only had the generator a few weeks and run it 3 times but it starts well and runs well on LP and Gasoline. It also supplies high short term amperage for motor starting.
