    I bought the Bohmer AG 2500k which is 2200W...not sure how their naming works. It states 63-65db depending where you look online. It is not that bad in terms of noise and cheap at £190, seems well built too. I didn't fit the wheels as it weighs too much and takes up too much space with those on.

    Either way it works for the warmers which i think are around 1100w.

    I have actually modified the exhaust to quieten even more, found an old baffle and attached it to the end (I'll take a pic) and it has helped. But most of the noise actually seems to be from the intake.

    It is good, fairly quiet and doesn't use a ton of fuel. It had about 3/4 of a tank left from my last TD. I do not believe this model is an inverter. Only real negative is the weight, it is about 40KG with the wheels on.

    Mine is 35kg without. Only fits on the back seat of the car too, making it awkward and a strain to travel with.

    I need a van or an estate/hatchback!

    Re: Generator for tyre warmers

    The ironic thing is the wheels bump up the weight! Definitely need an estate as a minimum. I had an old van but age got the better of it. I already had a pickup and now use a trailer, it works for the once a month track day but if i was more frequent i would definitely go back to a van. Plus the truck and trailer is stupidly long haha.

    Generator for Tyre Warmers

    Mine weighs about 21Kg. It’s not exactly lightweight but it is compact.
