We have supplied PTO generators to the agricultural industry for almost fifty years. A reliable source of power is necessary for farming and a continuous rated tractor driven generator guarantees this. Roland Bradley started selling generators to the farming community back in 1973 and for almost 35 years he was the main importer and distributor of the magnate generator until they ceased production in 2005. He then imported the Mecc Alte generator.
Roland retired from the business in 2018 and the business was taken over by the Nicholls family forming a new company and keeping the Bradley name which is synonymous with generators in Ireland. Father and son team Eddie & Darren are both Qualified electricians and Eddie has been involved with Bradley’s since 1986.
The unit comes in as generator and gearbox and assembled at our facility outside Portlaoise, we continue to use the Magnate speed light system which is now exclusive to us. All our generators are manufactured and wound by Mecc Alte at their facility in Oakham in the UK. Generators are 1500 RPM and are of industrial standard, which means they can be run continuously. All generators are assembled on site at our facility and all components are either UK or European origin.
All Bradley’s Generators are fitted with an MCB for protection, Speed light as standard to indicate that the unit is being run at the correct speed. Generators also come with legs, which can be manufactured to suit the height of the Pto if the generator and tractor are at different levels
We build the sets in two formats, static which is normally situated in the plant room and a portable unit which is mounted on the lift arms of the tractor and can be moved to different sites. All generators are fitted with an AVR which regulates the output voltage.
