Product Q&A

Ask Us a Question
  • 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

    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. 

  • What's the difference between these GP Honda engines and the more common GX series Honda engines?

    The Honda GCP Engine range are lightweight, simple to use/maintain engines designed for domestic, DIY and light commercial use. You’ll find these engines in small water pumps, small generators, domestic/light commercial grade pressure washers and other power equipment designed for common workside or resdential tasks. 

    The Honda GX Engine range are the more commonly used petrol engines for power equipment products – they are designed for professional and commercial requirements and built to handle intensive, regular use over many, many years. They are made from heavy duty materials and can be found in trade generators, commercial pressure washers, petrol transfer/trash pumps and other premium grade outdoor power equipment suited to rigorous tasks. 

    All Honda Engines are backed by a national service agent network. The Honda GP Engines are backed by a 2 year warranty and the Honda GX Engines are backed by a 4 year warranty.

  • Looking for a generator good enough to keep a food freezer and or fridge running - Would this one do the job?

    Hi Craig, yes this model is a very popular cost effective generator for running domestic fridges and freezers.

    Most domestic fridge/freezers will have a start-up power requirement of around 1000-1500 watts and then drop back down to a smaller running amount as they work on a thermostat. So again, this generator would suit running your household fridge/freezer. 

    Overall, it is a popular unit for home backup power requirements and small jobs on farms and work sites. Many thanks. 

  • 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.


  • Hi There can i run a electric drill or a grinder with this generator.Also is there a larger fuel tank available

    Hi There,

    Provided the tools do not draw more than the maximum 2.8kVA then you will be just fune running them with this generator.

    No larger fuel is currently available, sorry.
