A truly great product

We were in the market for a generator which woud provide us reliable power when needed. A generator that could power our air conditioner on hot summer days and recharge our batteries during bleak winter days. We are extremely proud we chose Gentrax; reliable, efficient and extremely well priced. Its something we dont rely on to meet our needs but we know when we do need it we wont be let down. Show reply

Great little Genny

I recently purchased the Gentrax 3.5 generator and put a couple of tanks of fuel through it (to run in and test its capacity). Very impressed with what it can run and the quietness of this unit. Delivery was very fast and the price extremely competitive. All in all I'm very happy!! Show details ·  1

Good Experience

My purchase experience was great, especially ordering from another state. Dealing with [Name Removed] on the phone and followed up with emails was a breeze with quick responses to finalise the order. The order was dispatched quickly only a slight delay at this end otherwise perfect.
Thanks,

G'day,
Today, I was using my generator to run our caravan air-conditioner for a short time while we packed it. It was running fine, and then it stopped as if it ran out of fuel. After refuelling, I unplugged it from the van to restart it several times, and it kept stopping, and the overload light came on. As you can see from the attached invoice, it is just over a couple of years old. It has never been on a trip and has approximately only run for 5 to 7 hours. Used 3 times. It has been stored out of the weather at all times.
Cheers

Make sure you have the tank lid vent open or it will stop as fuel can't flow. Other than that I don't know never had a problem. Hope the cap vent is all it is.

Cap was open so unfortunately that's not the problem.

Hi. Same as above motor is cutting out with overload light coming on. We bought directly from Gentrax and sent out to us in Proston Queensland. Where would our closest technician be? Or what else can we check at home.

Hi Tam, we do not have any local service center or local technicians but we can always help you. For Gentrax-purchased generators, kindly share here the Gentrax order number and we will look into the matter further and help resolve it. Thank you.

Features

  • This generator is equipped with 2 x 240V outlets and 1x 12V outlet.
  • Gentrax states that (depending on the individual wattages of each appliance) you can use this generator to charge your camping fridge, television, laptop, a small microwave, your mobile phone and camping lights. You just shouldn’t plug them all in simultaneously.
  • Offers a max AC output of 3.5kW, which is the maximum power when starting the generator. The rated AC output, or running power, available is 3.0kW.
  • Pure sine waves make the current of electricity steadier and safer for charging personal electronics like mobile phones and laptops, and other sensitive electronics.
  • Powered by Unleaded 91 petrol, this Gentrax generator has a 5-litre fuel capacity and a 1-litre oil capacity.
  • The running time for this generator is 8 hours in economy mode and 6 hours in full mode.
  • Includes overload and surge protection as safety features. Overload protection will disconnect the power if the combined wattage of electronics exceeds the maximum load. A surge protector helps prevent electronic equipment from voltage spikes.
  • Operates at a noise level of 57dB, which is marginally louder than the hum of a household refrigerator.
  • This generator weighs 28 kg, a weight that’s made lighter by the fact that it uses an air-cooled engine, rather than one cooled by water.
  • The brand carries all spare parts and offers ongoing tech support.

Here’s what reviewers thought

The consensus was that this generator offered quality performance at an affordable price. Reviewers were happy to note that this generator works well and reliably in power outages as a source of home back-up power. It was also used with satisfaction on camping trips, and also to power electric garden tools and farm equipment.

Some reviewers noted that there can be a few issues when starting with the pull cord - the generator doesn’t immediately start. However, it was also noted that once you learn the proper method to start up the generator, it quickly stops being an issue. Once it starts running, there are minimal issues.

Reviewers were also divided about the noise level that this Gentrax generator produced. Some people found it too noisy, while others found the noise level to be deliciously quiet.
