Quick Overview

Pramac Lombardini 8.8kVA AVR Diesel Silenced Generator, Electric Start, 1 Year Warranty

Product Description

Pramac Lombardini 8.8kVA AVR Diesel Generator with Auto Start capability. The P9000 diesel generator represents the leading edge of back-up power technology. This super quiet unit is ideal for home and small business back-up applications. This unit is popular for automatic backup applications either for off-grid solar or mains power backup;


1) Backup to Off-Grid Solar: For backup power to off-grid solar systems, this generator requires a Pramac 2 Wire Auto Start Controller (see Accessories List above to add to your order). This controller connects between your Pramac generator and your solar system for automatic charging of your solar batteries when battery charge is low. A qualified solar installer / electrician is required to undertake the install and connection. Click on below image for a video demonstration:

2) Backup to Mains Power:  For backup power to your home/building when there is a mains power blackout, this generator requires an Automatic Mains Failure (AMF) Panel (see Accessories List above to add to your order)This panel is also referred to as an 'Automatic Transfer Switch'. This AMF detects when there is a mains power failure, and signals to the generator to automatically start up to restore power to your home/building. Conversely, as soon as the AMF detects mains power returns, it stops the generator. A qualified electrician is required to undertake the install and connection.

Overall, the P9000 is powered by a trusty diesel Lombardini engine, complete with first class components and complete instrumentation. The air-cooled engine features an electric start to drive an AVR alternator for a max output of 8.8kVA and a continuous output of 6800 watts. Add to this the long-run 24L fuel tank and it’s no wonder this generator is the pinnacle of back-up power.

Designed for intensive use, the P9000 is equipped with a control panel that allows you to integrate the accessories outlined above, depending on your specific backup application (solar or mains backup). 

To complete the package, a 12-month warranty with a national service network has your maintenance needs covered.

Ask a Question

  • Q:I live off-grid in a solar powered home. If I were to install an auto-start generator to back up my solar, what connection type would I need?

    Hi Steve - great question! You would require a Two-Wire Auto Start Controller for your solar application; This device would connect between your auto-start generator and to your battery pack inverter connection. When your deep cycle battery packs run low, the controller will detect this and signal for the generator to automatically kick in so you will not be without power! It will also signal for the generator to stop once the battery packs are charged.

    This connection and installation needs to be undertaken by a qualified electrician.  

    The Two-Wire Auto Start Controller can be found under the Accessory List on the product page. 

    Hope that helps- Thank you!

  • Q:We have solar panels on our house. Do we need to get an electrician to hook it into our metre box? What happens when the power fails, do we just start it ourselves?

    Hi There, thanks for your inquiry. The Pramac auto-start generator range are very popular as a backup to off-grid solar set ups. Via a two-wire auto start controller the generator is connected to your solar battery set up (this is undertaken by a solar installer / electrician). When your batteries get low on charge, the generator will automatically start up to re-charge your battery packs and the automatically stop again once your batteries are back to full charge.

    If you would like to discuss further, please give us a call on 1300 400 122 and we can help you out.

    Many thanks, Steve 

  • Q:I can see that with an auto-start generator, an “AMF Panel” is required for mains power backup, and for solar back up a “2 wire auto start controller” is needed. But if I’m on solar and mains, do I need both to go with my auto-start generator?

    Hi, firstly you are completely correct; to use your auto-start generator for automatic power backup, you need either:

    • An AMF panel for automatic backup to mains power, or
    • A Two-wire auto start controller for automatic backup to off-grid solar systems

    For homes on solar and on mains power:
    In this case, the solar charge is either used within the household consumption or fed back into the grid, meaning there are no storage batteries like there is for an off-grid solar system. So,if you require an auto-start generator to automatically start up to restore power to your home (which is on solar and mains power), you would need an accompanying AMF panel - an electrician would undertake the connection. When a blackout occurs, the AMF panel would signal for the generator to start and restore power to your home.

    For homes with an off-grid solar system:
    The Two-Wire auto start controller is only for off-grid solar systems, whereby the controller is connected to generator and the solar battery system. When the batteries run low on power, the controller signals to the generator to start up and restore power to the batteries.

  • Q:Can I install one of these auto start generators myself? How difficult is it?

    Hi Ron, installation of an auto-start generator to provide backup power for mains failure or backup to solar applications needs to be done by a qualified electrician. It is a failry straighforward job for an electrician.

    Cheers, Steve.

  • Q:Do I still need to maintain the generator even if it hasn't been required for back up?

    Howdy - yes you do need to provide some simple maintenance. It is advised that you start up and run the generator periodically to run the engine and ensure that all is working for when it is required for backup.

    Regular oil changes (inline with manufacturer guidelines) and inspections are also advised to ensure maximum performance.  The owner’s manual comprises full routine maintenance procedures and schedules.

  • Q:Hi is this generator water or air cooled ?


    Yes, the Pramac 8.8kVA Silenced Auto Start Diesel Generator - P9000 has an air cooled Lombardini 25LD330 engine. 

  • Q:What engine oil should I use with this Generator?

    Hi - the generator requires standard engine oil;  either 10W-30 or 10W-40.

    This is available from any local service station. Many thanks 

  • 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.
