Buyer Beware. Waste of money


I recently bought a 3.5KVA Kings generator from 4wd supacentre. On arrival, I actioned the prescribed start procedure, it stated with a cloud of black smoke, ran for 10 minutes, stopped and hasn't worked since.
All my attempts to have 4wd render assistance were without result, they now seem to adopt the startegy of ignoring the problem completely. I would recommend avoiding the product and the supplier.

Kings 3.5kva not a problem


I have been running this generator for over 2 years with my motor home
Getting about 14 hours a tank of fuel running a large air con on low
Have run the air con, toaster and jug all at the same time, just to push it turned the microwave on (this was pushing it and shut down) for the price and the reliability would buy another in a hart beat
Sorry to here about the bad experiences

Purchased in March 2017 for A$699.00.

Correction of bad other bad review


Just read review about fellow who didn’t like the generator. He was using it to power a 12vdc camping fridge. The 12vdc outlets on just about all portable generators are only a light duty battery charger, not really a good 12vdc supply.
In reality who buys a 3.5Kva generator just use the auxiliary 12vdc outlet. If that’s what you want plug a heavy duty 12vdc power supply onto the 240vac outlet .
The machines primary perpose is a 240vac generator . The 12vdc is just a small auxiliary circuit.

Purchased in March 2019.

Absolute rubbish


Bought a 3.5 kings generator lasted 3 nights, kept going into oeverload by just running a engel 45 litre fridge, small Tv, in the end the thing would not start, then the cord pulled out!!! Another fellow camper bought the same, same thing happened to him after 8 days, same thing wouldn't run a 12 volt fridge stay away from them absolutely crap!!

Let there be Light!!!!


My Kings 2.2kva works a dream. During Cyclone Debbie and recent storms, this little Gem ran our house (560ltr fridge, 300ltr freezer, 55”plasma, hot / cold water and charged all the phones and tablets for the neighbors. For the price you couldn’t fault it. Going to upgrade to the 3.5kva and still keep the 2.2 to help others.

Our 2kva generator is 12 months old and hasn't missed a beat til now. We use it to run a portable washing machine ,charge the phones and very occasionally light power tools. It will start, run for a few minutes then stop and was showing the overload light. Changed spark plug, fuel filter and used carby clean. Overload light didn't come on, but still stopped after a few minutes
