Product ReviewSo far this has been a great machine. The guys were really helpful during the purchase and it was delivered without a hitch. I use it for running my inverter welder and concrete mixer it hardly notices they are there.
Only thing I would change were a couple of options - would have added weatherproof power as standard and probably the wheel kit although I would like to see how the wheel kit works as it would have to be retractable - which you would hope it is for the price of that extra option.
Shopping ExperienceNo issues with the service - guys were really easy to deal with. One of my better online shopping experiences.Recommend this product to a friend? yes(Posted on 1/14/15)
- quality generator Review by Greg Shortal , Hakwer SA
Quality Value Price
Product ReviewI wanted to stick with a Honda engine as my last unit was also a honda and treated me very well. This one is far more modern in most areas and am very pleased with it. It is very fuel efficient when I run for long periods to power tools on my fence-line perimeter. I also use it to charge our batteries when the solar is low - its quieter than the older units and starts with a button rather than the rip chord which is good for an older older fella like me! I reckon this unit will last me for a long time to come, very happy overall.
Shopping ExperienceI am glad to say that the customer service and the product provided a great customer experience all together and will be telling my friends about it. Many thanks.Recommend this product to a friend? yes(Posted on 1/13/15)

Product ReviewThis is easily the best generator I've used on the worksite. Previous units have started to pack it in within a couple of years and you could tell it was coming. This 8kVA unit is now about 4 years old and hasn't let me down once - still going as strong as ever. Shows that locally made is worth it. Cheers, Angus.

8kVA Honda Powered Petrol Generator; the number 1 choice for Trade and Farming applications:
Are these genuine Honda engines? Thanks
Hi Brett - The answer is absolutely yes!
The Advanced Power brand use 100% authentic Honda engines and come with a full 3 year commercial warranty. You can have the engine serviced or inspected by any approved Honda service agent around the country. The Advanced Power 8kVA unit is our best selling trade generator.
We are aware of some cheaper brands using imported "Honda" engines in generators and other power equipment which are not authentic engines from Honda Australia, but we do not carry any of these products/brands.
Hi - Is this the best brand in terms of warranty for Trade gensets?
G'Day Blake - we would say yes; Advanced Power range of trade generators have the most comprehensive warranty; it is a full 3 year commercial warranty on the whole generator. Some other trade brands in the market may have a 3 year warranty on parts of the generator (i.e. the frame), but then may only have a 1 year warranty on the engine.
Additionally, many of the Advanced Power trade generator models (including this 8kVA unit) use genuine Honda engines, meaning you can have the unit serviced or inspected by any one of the many Honda service agents around the country. Thank you.
Will this genny run my portable carpet cleaner with 2 x 1200 watt vac motors with a water heating element. Thanking you
Hi there - given this generator produces 8000 watts at start-up and 6400 watts continuous it should run your carpet cleaners. HOWEVER, we strongly recommend you check the product details of your appliance first; as each product type is different with different power draw requirements.
You need to check both the running wattage AND the starting wattage of your carpet cleaners - the starting power can be 4-5 times the running power, particularly in appliances with heating elements. You can find out this info in the product manual, or by contacting the manufacturer. Again, it is likely that this generator will run your carpet cleaners, but just be sure to check these details before you purchase to be 100% certain you have enough power to run your specific appliances.
Does the electric start come with remote starting?
Hi, the electric start option does not come with remote starting functionality. We do have a range of auto start generators with remote start functionality. You can browse this range here: Auto-Start Generators
What additions do I need to have on the generator to ensure it is Work Cover Approved?
Hi Luke - The additional Work Cover features on a generator are; Earth Leakage Protection, Weatherproof Outlets and Rollover Frame. 8kVA is our most popular sized trade generator and brands like Powerlite, Gentech, Dunlite and Crommelins Subaru have 8kVA models in standard, or as a Work Cover Approved.
Could this genny be connected to my house mains to provide automatic backup power during a blackout? I imagine I would need a switch or connection of sorts to connect to the mains panel?
Hi Scott - good question! Unfortunately, for automatic start the short answer is no: not this type of generator.
To connect to your house mains electricity and provide automatic power backup, you need to connect an AMF (automatic mains failure) Panel to a two wire auto start generator. So the first thing you need to do is to look at the auto-start generator range; Pramac, Powerlite and Generac have models designed specifically for this purpose. All the generators in this range are fitted with two wire auto start and can be connected to your main switchboard via an AMF Panel (an additional accessory) that signals to start the generator in the event of a mains power failure. The installation needs to be done by a qualified electrician.
However, for this Generator, you can talk to an electrician about fitting a transfer switch between the generator and your home switch board. This will provide backup power to your home, but you will need to manually start the generator - it will not start automatically as explained above.
