I can understand how you might want to go with an alternator, especially if this is a work tractor you use everyday. As Bern said, the alternator is generally more reliable and has some advantages over a generator like not having brushes that carry high current (the alternator will usually have slip rings instead that carry only the excitation current which is about one-tenth of the alternator's output) and smoother output voltage. Sometimes you have to raise the engine speed above idle to get them to start charging, but that's usually the case with a genny too. The kit you mentioned, does it come with the necessary mounting hardware, hookup info, and a tach drive? If so, that sounds like a fair deal. -Will
