    Product Review

    Generator does a great job and the auto start is so reassuring. No more going to the solar power shed to start the gene on a cold and rainy night. Perfect back-up to our stand-alone solar system.

    Shopping Experience

    Purchase process was excellent. Plenty of information and answers to my questions. However, shipping by TNT was an absolute nightmare. They lost it twice and it took 4 days from Sydney to the Hunter Valley, about 20 phone calls and utter frustration! TNT's "Customer Service" is a disgrace. A waste of my $94 shipping cost. Would have been better to drive to Sydney to pick it up!

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:About how long does it run for?
    A:

    Hi Ken, this model has a 24.5 Litre fuel tank which has a run time of approx. 10.5 hours at 75% power load. Many thanks

  • Q:What oil does the engine need and how often should I replace it?
    A:

    The recommended oil is SAE- 10W-30

    The service schedule for the Honda GX390 is oil change after first 20 hours.

    Oil change Every 6 months or 100 Hour

  • Q:With the solar back up auto-start, does it sense the battery bank voltage and then automatically start when it gets low?
    A:

    Hi Michael,

    The Short Answer is:  Your inverter charger on your solar system senses voltage drop and tells the generator to start via the Deep Sea Two Wire Auto Start Controller (which is included within the generator).

    More Detail:  Auto start generators work on a two wire principle. In this case the Dunlite and Gentech 8kVA Auto Start Honda Models, they are fitted with a Deep Sea Two Wire controller. This controller relies on a signal from your inverter charger (as part of your solar system) to join "Two Wires" to close the circuit and start the generator and vice versa open the circuit and stop the generator.

    Your inverter charger on your off-grid solar installation has the smarts that detect voltage drop. You can program the inverter charger to signal the generator to start when the batteries reach this pre-determined voltage. The inverter charger can also be programmed to accept a frequency range and voltage range that the generator puts out.

    Hope that helps - Regards, Paul

  • Q:Just wondering about noise level for under house deck?
    A:

    Hi Linda, this model has a noise level rating of 74 decibels at 7 metres.

    To give you a point of reference, normal conversation levels are rated at around 50 - 60 decibels.

    This model is an 'open frame' generator, meaning it does not have enclosed soundproof casing which limits noise level. In short, this model will create a somewhat noticeable noise level during operation...it just depends on how important it is for you to reduce noise and by how much.

    If you want a quieter Auto Start Generator, then you could consider the below options which have silencing material built into the models, noting you will pay more for it:

    Pramac 6kVA Super Silenced Auto Start Diesel Generator

    Kubota 6kva Lowboy Diesel Generator


      

  • Q:Hi, there are two generators listed, one is a Gentech, one is a Dunlite - They look similar, but slightly different pricing. What is the difference in the generators? Regards, Neville
    A:

    Hi Neville, great question. Dunlite & Gentech are both built / distributed by an Australian company called Welling & Crossley. They have been Australian owned and operated since 1926, and are recognised as an Australian leader in the manufacture and supply of petrol & diesel power equipment and generating sets for industrial, commercial and domestic applications.

    Welling & Crossley's range of portable generators has always been Gentech. Then around 20 years ago, they acquired a similar portable generator brand in Dunlite. Each brand has excellent recognition throughout Australia. So both brands now come out of the same Welling & Crossley factory and so the models are not just similar, but the same – either branded ‘Gentech’ or ‘Dunlite’.

    In the instance where the price is slightly different, this just relates to stock levels and availability of that particular model. In any case, there are Dunlite/Gentech portable petrol generators from around 2kVA to 16kVA in size, mostly powered by genuine Honda engines and are the trusted option for tradesmen, farmers, industrial applications, domestic requirements, small businesses and much more... similarly, the Dunlite/Gentech diesel portable generator models up to around 9kVA in size are powered by the likes of Lister Petter and Kohler engines and used for all matter of commercial, industrial and rural power requirements.

    All Gentech/Dunlite products are backed by comprehensive warranties from the manufacturer (Welling & Crossley) and come with national service agent and spare parts support. Thanks. 

  • Q:I have a 3hp Air Compressor and need a generator to run it. Will the Gentech 8kva be big enough?
    A:

    Yes, The gentech 8kva Generator is actually fitted with a large 9.5kva alternator, which gives it the extra capacity to handle a 3hp compressor.

    We work off a general rule of 1hp = 3kva

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

    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.

    Thanks.
