Balmar’s 98-Series, extra large case alternators are scaled to bridge the gap between standard alternators and gensets. Commonly found on USCG 47-foot motor lifeboats, the 98-Series alternator is the largest and most powerful Balmar alternator A robust J180 saddle-style dual foot mounting configuration is ideal as a replacement for standard J180 mount alternators or for use as a second alternator on custom J180 saddle mount brackets.
