What are load banks used for?

Load banks are a type of assessment tool used to transfer electrical power loads to generators to test their functionality and efficiency. If the load test fails, the structure has another transfer switch communicating with the load bank’s circuit board. The load bank will shut off, and the electrical flow to the generator will cease until a technician resets it.

How do I hook up a load bank to a generator?

Load banks are connected to generators by manual transfer switches. The switches operate by assigned site workers who maneuver the switch to shift it to and from the “load bank” setting. If you need assistance with this task, we encourage you to thoroughly read any user manuals or guides on safe equipment use. Contact your local United Rentals branch to consult with a specialist for further support.

At United Rentals, we strive to meet every customer at a reasonable price point. Our used load banks range in cost depending on the make, model, manufacturer year and usage. Request information on any of our load bank models, and a United Rentals representative will contact you.
