Load Banks


Herc Rentals also offers portable and trailer-mounted load banks. These load banks are designed to test the operation of electrical power supplies and critical backup power systems. By periodically testing these systems, operations and facility managers can prevent a loss of power that might cause production delays, rising costs, and the loss of life during an emergency or disaster.




Many critical businesses utilize backup generators, batteries, or other power sources in the event of a power failure. Load banks are ideal for annual testing, load optimization, shore power testing, generator exercising, reduction of wet stacking, and renewable energy testing.
