Sensational unit. Unbelievable value for money!

published

I paid $999inc for my unit. It runs unbelievably well, super quiet, has all the features and build quality of a unit twice the price. Its 2000w continuous rating is better than the yamaha. Its very easy to start. I just dont have enough good things to say

Purchased in at Generator Store for $999.

Good unit

published

Bought this a few years ago to get us through a lengthy power outage of 1 week. Got us through ok. So long as you don't leave fuel in the tank and drain the carb using the easy to empty screw you should be ok to go next time you need it

Purchased in for $1,500.

Cromtech Outback 2.4

published

Recently purchased but great so far. Seems quieter than my old Kipor and less weight. Easy to start on choke then run and let settle for 3 minutes before connecting up. Tried my Ibis 3 today and no worries there, runs ok.

Purchased in for $990.

Quality and Support Key to buying

published

Bought from McFarlane Generators in Brendale QLD - I needed a generator that I could manage and would start my caravan air conditioner (old clunker Electrolux CAL 136) McFarlane offered me a few options to actually trial on site. The Cromtech CTG2500i came out on top it has worked well for me for almost two years, Support network around Australia was quite large compared to other manufacturers Great value and quiet.

Purchased for $899.

I have owned mine for over two years. It has been perfectly reliable

published

Bought from the brilliant Macfarlane Generators in Sydney. Highly recommend these guys. Knowledgeable and fairly priced generators. Paid $850 for mine

Does the job brilliantly. Running a couple of coffee roasters and charging phones via the USB ports.

Can take a bit of effort to start but that os likely the heavy handed users fault !

Always run on 91 with zero issues but never e10

Five stars from me.

Purchased in for $850.

Worst product ever

published

Bought this generator on a Saturday afternoon to use for a 1100 watt aircon whilst camping. Did all the checks oil, fuel etc etc started first pull was awesome.
2hrs later was off on an overload, unplugged aircon and just left the baby monitor plugged in.
10 min later overload, reset and tried to start again. This thing was lighting up the overload whilst I just pulling to start.
Took back to A Mans Toy shop where purchased, not much can be said about their service either. They have tried to tell me that I caused it by using 91 fuel? I don't think so. Just trying to get my money back now as it is a terrible product and didn't even last 3 hrs

Purchased in at A Man's Toyshop for $1,099.

Not happy

published

Not happy with this. Never been able to run several of my appliances, microwave, kettle, AC. Also become difficult to start after only a handful of uses. Do not recommend the product, just from my own experience. Maybe recieved a lemon? I had a smaller quieter Honda which lasted years and ran everything. It hasn't proven reliable for me.

Fantastic Generator runs like a dream .....

published

Bought this on special It was shipped immediately Recieved it in a few days Put oil and fuel in started first time instantly.Exceeds all my expectations for output quietness and is simply great on all fronts ... Considering you can have 3 of these with higher output compared to the red and the blue competition not that there is anything wrong there This is just a delight to have by comparison and price Support Australia wide as well ..
Highly Recommended......

Was working great

published

Was working great, drove the air con in my caravan no problems, a little noisier than I would have liked at full grunt.
Biggest problem was the fuel tank split around the seam so was only good for short burst before running out of petrol as could only fill it 1/3rd.

Nice small unit

published

Bought this unit for standby power, as we too live in S.A.
Very fuel efficient and reasonably quiet. Haven't used it a lot but its handled everything ive thrown at it. My only critism of the generator is, that its not that easy to start. 5 good hard pulls to get it going, easy enough for me. But the rest of the family have struggled. Having said that, i have not regrets at the price i paid.

cromtech outback, nice surprise!

published

Purchased my Cromtech Outback from L&V Forklifts via EBay for $879 with free shipping.
We had a new Honda EU20i prior which was great but it was going to struggle with the new Air Command Cormorant aircon in the caravan. Very happy with the unit, well built, all the outlets are solid and weather protected. Quiet and runs the aircon plus fridge no worries on eco idle. Glad we took the punt.

Mine fires but dies straight away. I've cleaned the carb twice but still same fault. Replaced the spark plug, tested the on/off switch and fuel is running to carb in the on position. Oil level is level with cap when level so all seems good. What might be the problem?

If it is like most generators it sounds like the pilot jet in the carby is clogged.When you unscrew the jet it usually has 2 larger holes in the side and 1 very fine hole in the end of it that gets clogged

Not so sure about it!
It does NOT run my 2.2 KW Heron AC. I am using unleaded 91 octane fuel. Would it make any difference if I would use 98 octane premium?
