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 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. 

  • Hi guys, is the engine in this Dunlite genset a genuine Honda engine? I know there are some cheap imitation engines in the market. Thanks.

    G'Day, this is most definitely a genuine Honda engine! The Dunlite range of Petrol Generators use 100% authentic Honda engines purchased from Honda Australia and are backed with a full 4 year commercial warranty for the Honda GX model engines. The generator, including the frame and alternator etc. comes with a 2 year warranty. You can have the engine serviced or inspected by any approved Honda service agent in Australia - there are more than 400 accredited Honda service agents around the country.

    We are also aware of some cheaper brands using imported "Honda" engines or cheap imitation generator brands labelling the engine as Honda. We do not stock any products that use non-verified Honda engines from Honda Australia. Dunlite have had a presence in Australia for over 75 years and have a very strong reputation for tough worksite and farm site generators around the country. Along with Gentech and Powerlite, they are one of our best-selling portable trade generator brands.

    Hope that helps, Cheers - Steve

  • Can the electric start be retro fitted to this unit?

    Hi - no the electric start cannot be retro-fitted to the standard unit. You can order the unit as an electric start model though - this electric start model model is powered by a Honda IGX390 engine (a slightly different engine to the standard Honda GX390 engine). You can select this option in the accessories list on the product page. 

  • 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.

    Thanks.

  • How will it go running a small inverter welder say around 160amps?

    Hi, for welders; we always recommend you give the manufacturer of your welder a call (e.g. Unimig, Cigweld etc.) and ask them two things:

    1. What size generator do they recommend to run your particular welder model?
    2. What type of generator is required to run your model? (i.e. is an inverter generator required?)

    Typically, a conventional style 7-8kVA generator (like this one) will run a large number of welder models on the market, however some models require more power and a certain power type. So, its best to double check with the welding manufacturer to ensure you get the right generator for your particular welder make/model.
