Great generator but issues with wheel kit Review by
This generator is one of the best and simplest generators ive ever used. Literally turn the key and start it up and its a-lot quieter than i t thought for its size. A few little issues.... It says that the generator need oil before starting and even has a tag to fill it... The generator was already filled so naturally because i didn't check i had oil go everywhere. Tank is relatively easy to fill though keep in mind not to fill it if your going to move it.... Its heavy!!! The only major issue i had was the wheel kit.. The kit that was supplied was for an older model and the axles were missing holes and extra pins. I had to make 4 calls until i reached the supplier and they sent me the axle out in the post. Other than that, its a great backup generator and works wonders on my off grid solar system.

Great build quality and surprisingly quiet. Review by
I just finished the installation. Everything about this generator has been done with the idiot in mind. Highly recommend this generator to anyone that’s off grid. Super quiet for the size. Very easy to install. The fuel tank is easy to access and the build is suburb. Very happy. Thank you. Dunlite for thinking ahead.

Product Q&A

Ask Us a Question
  • With the solar back up auto-start, does it sense the battery bank voltage and then automatically start when it gets low?

    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

  • 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. 

  • 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.


  • are they pure sin wave or not

    Hi There,

    These generators do not produce a pure sine wave. Only inverter generators produce a pure sine wave.

  • Is this unit fitted with a eco throttle & if not could one be fitted.

    Hi There,

    This generator does not have economy idle, and there is not a factory ooption to have one fit, sorry.

  • What size and type of electrical outlets are supplied with the set?

    Hi There,

    This unit has two 15amp single phase outlets.

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

    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
