Best Outdoor Shed For Portable Generator

Updated on September 7, 2014

Recommended Sheds for Portable Generators

There are a few sheds for a portable generator than can look well in your garden. Listed below are three recommendations for some sheds that can be used for this purpose.

Ideally, you would like these sheds to have a top and front opening for easy access. You would also want it to be easy enough to wheel the generator in and out of the shed if you need to.

The good thing about these outdoor sheds is that they can also be used for storing other outdoor equipment like a lawn mower and other gardening or cleaning stuff.

Obviously, how big the shed for portable generator depends on the size of your generator. So make sure when you're buying one that you have the right dimensions at hand.

Your Outdoor Shed For Portable Generator - A Few Important Points To Bear In Mind

Here are some things to remember when buying an outdoor shed for your generator.

  1. It's a good idea to put a piece of plywood at the bottom of the shed so that the generator is more secure. It also helps prevent any damages from the weight of the generator.
  2. Make sure that the generator will not overheat inside the shed. You can open all openings when you have the generator on. The best thing that you can do however is just to wheel it out of the shed when you're using it. I know that's a pain but I think it's the safest way to deal with it espcially if you're not sure if it will overheat inside the shed or not.
  3. Another thing that you can do to prevent overheating is also to make holes for the fan and the exhaust. See if that works for the kind of generator you have.
