I have only used it a few times,less than 20hours.it did run my air con in caravan just,electric toaster,kettle separately,not used for 12 month's,now it won't run the toaster.etc.tried running my 1000 watt Holegen light stand.and it won't operate them.just goes out on overload. I FIXED IT.,had to clean the carburetor,and I sprayed the electric throttle body with inbox.
yes all good
that company seems only to stock great quality genet's and invertors.
even have a fuel filter something other brands off internet don't have.
and this makes them much more reliable.
a fellow boatie has one next size down I could believe it had a fuel filter when I serviced it for him.
it does blow smoke but. he has done many hours charging his battery bank with it.
Enough quiet power at a fraction of the cost
Brought this generator on eBay from Edisons. A fraction of the cost of the big brand names. Delivered in two days to Horsham (Vic) I filled it with oil and fuel and had it running in no time. I run it with no load for 1 hour then changed the oil (I use SAE30) and run it for one hour at 75 % load. Starts very easily and runs very quiet at idle. With 50% load you can carry on a conversation right next to it. A bit louder at 75% and above. The cold start label is back to front so hot is cold and cold is hot. Had me stumped the first couple of pull...s. If that is the biggest problem I have then I will be happy. Runs the caravan stuff but of course not all together. The way I have it figured I can get 4 of these delivered compared to one Honda so although I know this is not a Honda (I know I will be told this at lots of campgrounds) it does the job.
Questions & Answers
Started mine for the first time, plugged a small pressure washer into it (1.2kw) and it went straight into overload and cut out. Thought I might have to earth it, did that and same problem. Am I doing something wrong???
no you are doing nothing wrong.
to start a 1.3 kw pressure washer you will need to multiply 1.2 by at least 5 times and really 7 for easy starting.
I have the 3.5 max kva models and also a 1.2 kw gerni it don't even look like turning it ove just goes start to over load. unless your pressure washer has soft start and I have never seen one you will need at lest a 6 kva geni. also 1 kva and one kilo watt are not the same one kva equals .8 of a kw.
so a 6kva genset is weaker then a 6 kw model. something many people try to hide and swear it all the same , but the fact remans one kva equals .8 of a kw
i don't know of any pressure washer tiny enough for a 2.5 genset to start so really give up it isn't going to work
