How to restart your generator after the lockdown inactivity?

Do the 16-point check-up to ensure optimal performance

Your Atlas Copco Generator is made to work long and hard. And even when it has to stay inactive for a while – like in the recent lockdown period – it can’t wait to get going again. But before you turn the key to Start, do the 16-point check-up to ensure optimal performance.
