Product Description

Cromtech Petrol 8.5kVA, powered by Robin. The new Cromtech Petrol Generator from Crommelins is a high quality, simple, no fuss unit designed for general purpose trade, rural and commercial uses. Assembled and tested in Crommelins Australian factory, this tough unit is powered by a genuine 14 horsepower Robin industrial engine and delivers outstanding performance. 

The low maintenance Italian Mecc Alte Alternator is brushless and comes with overload protection. The Australian made steel roll frame protects the generator from unforeseen damage. Recommended for trade, farm or commercial use, 8.5kVA is the all-purpose size suited to many pumps, welders, saws, compressors, and other common equipment. 

Designed to be slightly more compact than the standard Crommelins Generator range, the Cromtech models have slightly smaller dimensions and use sturdy frames made from 25 mm tube compared to the standard Crommelins units which use a bulkier 32mm tube. 

All Cromtech Generators are supported by a national service and spare parts network and include 3 Year Robin engine warranty and 2 Year generator manufacturer’s warranty.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Does the Cromtech 8.5kVA have 15 Amp outlets?

    The Cromtech 8.5kva Petrol Generator comes with 1 x 15Amp and 1 x 10Amp single phase outlets fitted.

  • Q:How is it that this generator has 15Amp outlets, but the generator’s power rating is greater than 15Amps? (as 15Amps equates to 3600watts on a 240Volt appliance). Presumably you can get more than 15Amps out of the outlets then?

    Yes, that is correct. A 15 Amp outlet can deliver more power than 15 Amps for a short period, as there is no circuit breaker fitted to the generator as standard. You can briefly pull the full rated power amount of the generator (continuous and maximum) through the 15 Amp outlet.. noting that this is only for a short time - i.e. when you are first starting up an appliance such as a comprossor, drop saw, air conditioner etc. it may draw around 30 Amps (as an example) to start up, and then drop back down to 10 Amps to keep running.  

    However, if your appliance draws more than 15 Amps continuously, it is not recommended you run it for prolonged periods from a 15 Amp outlet, as it is likely to result in overheating issues. It may be prudent to consider re-fitting the outlets to a larger size to fit your continuous power requirement (i.e. 20 Amp, or 32 Amp outlet for example) - this can be configured upon request at extra cost. Thank you.

  • Q:What is the power output wave form? Pure sine wave, modified sine wave?

    Hi Jeff, this is a conventional generator using a brushless alternator that produces a power output with harmonic distortion of +/- 5%.

    conventional generator is designed to run appliances with resistive and heavy loads, e.g. power tools, farming equipment, domestic applainces without microprocessors. Conventional generators can handle 'overloading' for short periods, where an appliance will surge (usually when starting up) briefly. However, conventional generators are not intended to run sensitive electronic equipment (e.g. TV's, laptops, mobile phones etc.). Conventional generators are built tough and are popular for trade, construction, farming, industrial use, plus certain domestic requirements. 

    The type of generator that produces pure sine wave output is an inverter generatorAn inverter generator can run sensitive electronic equipment. Note that Inverter generators cannot handle large 'overloading' that conventional generators can. Too much overload on an inverter generator will cause the generator 'trip the breaker' and stop producing power. These inverter generators are quiet, fuel efficient and are designed for recreational use, small home backup, DIY tasks, small mobile business and small events. 

     Finally, its worth mentioning AVR Generators This type of generator has an Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) fitted, so they reduce large voltage fluctuations that can potentially damage appliances. These types of generators are commonly used for Domestic backup applications and small business backup requirements. 

  • Q:Can I use this generator to charge my power tool batteries?

    Hi there,

    Charging battery packs is fine from a conventional generator, we'd recommend having a steady load on the generator and don't connect appliances that will cause the load to jump around during charging.
