Northern Lights Generator, Model M643 (5KW)

Our Northern Lights Generator is a piece of equipment that just keeps on working. We are religious with maintenance and oil changes but are rewarded with reliable service.

Reliable indeed!!! But messy… For some years now I have been experimenting with various techniques to reduce the mess of oil when replacing horizontal filters.

Have you found a method that works for you?

I’m looking at mess prevention methods rather than mess mitigation. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.


Hello Jon,

Great response…much wittier than anything I could have come up with! Thanks for taking the time. Now I know I do not curse alone…
