Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Hi, what is the build time for a unit like this?

    Hi - the build time for a unit of this size is around 4-5 days. 

    Many thanks

  • Q:In terms of warranty, where can I find details of service agents for Powerlite Generators?

    Powerlite use premium grade components in all their generators. Starting with the engine, all of the engine manufacturers have national service agent and spare parts networks. The links below will help you with details of their respective service agents:

    For their petrol range, Powerlite mostly use Honda engines from Honda Australia. The Honda service agent network is listed HERE.

    Some petrol models have Briggs & Stratton / Vanguard engines, with their service agents listed HERE.

    For their diesel range, they use both Yanmar Engines and Hatz Engines.

    For specific generator/alternator warranty, servicing and spare parts inquiries for Powerlite Generators, you can find information HERE.

  • 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:Can I change this alternator to avr control? If I can what is the price?

    Yes, AVR can be fitted to this unit by the manufacturer - its is an option within the accessory list on the product page which has the price listed. Thanks

  • Q:Are these Powerlite generators using legitimate Honda engines? Some cheap brands use Honda engine rip-offs.

    Hi there – Most definitely yes. The Powerlite Petrol Generators use 100% authentic Honda engines purchased from Honda Australia. The engines come with a full 3 year commercial warranty, along with a 2 year generator warranty for frame, alternator etc. You can have the engine serviced or inspected by any approved Honda service agent around the country - there are more than 400 accredited service agents.

    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. We do not stock any products that use non-verified Honda engines. Powerlite have been manufacturing generators in Australia for over 50 years and are a leading brand for tradesmen, farmers, mining companies, and professional contractors requiring portable power.

  • Q:Will this unit run 2 medium size reverse cycle a/c’s plus fridge, freezer, fan, lights

    Hi There,

    You would need to make sure that you turn the air conditioners on at separate times so as to not put too much load on the generator.

    The rest of the appliances will be just fine to run with this generator.

  • 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.
