Product Description

Behold the 16 kVA 3-phase portable generator by Gentech. Fully assembled in Australia, this formidable machine is powered by a Honda V Twin GX690 petrol engine with electric start. The 27-litre fuel tank delivers over 6.6 hours of operation at 80% load – that’s enough for a day’s work (including coffee breaks!).

Welders, compressors and heavy duty equipment are no match for this generator. It’s built tough, so you can rely on this workhorse around the construction site or farm for many, many years to come.

Add on the remote start and wheel kit as additional options, and you are good to go. RCD Earth Leakage Protection with weatherproof outlets also available as an optional accessory for both three phase outlets and single phase outlets. 

Please note that the single phase (230-240V) outlet produces one third of the generator's power capacity. 

The package is complete with a 2 year generator warranty backed by a national service network. The Honda engine comes with a 3 year warranty.

This product is ‘Honda Australia Approved’ - meaning that the Honda engine used in an Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) product, has been engine match tested by Honda Australia, is a genuine Honda engine and meets their strict quality and operational standards, and is backed by their national service agent network. The following table outlines the new extended warranty for the different Honda engine types:

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. 

  • Is there an option for Earth Leakage Protection (ELP) for this unit? I just need 1 x 3 phase plug and 1 x 15amp plug. Also, do you sell a 30m 5core 4mm2 lead with 20 apm 5 pin plug end? Thanks

    Hi - The standard outlet configuration for this generator is:

    1 x 32A 5PIN 415V three phase outlet

    2 x 15A 3PIN 240V single phase outlets (note that you get one third of the total generator's power capacity out of the single phase outlets).

    If you require RCD Earth Leakage Protection, please refer to the accessory list which shows RCD for both single phase and three phase outlets. These are weatherproof outlets supplied fitted to the generator on order and comply with Australian Standards for work sites.

    Lastly, we do not sell leads - apologies, just the generator and outlets to suit your application. Thanks

  • Do the Gentech Generators use Genuine Honda Engines?

    Hi Glen, thanks for your question. The answer is a definite yes! The Gentech Petrol Generators use 100% authentic Honda engines purchased from Honda Australia. The engines come with a full 4 year commercial warranty on their GX model engines, 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. Gentech have over 20 years of Australian Generator experience and along with Dunlite and Powerlite, they are one of our best-selling portable trade generator brands. They are built in Australia and designed for longevity and to handle demanding working environments.

    Cheers, Steve



  • Do you have a link to the wheel kit for the 3 phase 12.5KVA and the 16 KVA Gentech? If I buy the wheel kit, do you fit it? Does the genny have a handle? How much for Delivery?

    Hi - here is a link to the manufacturer's page for the wheel kit: Gentech DGX06 Large Wheel Transportation Kit 

    The generator cant be shipped with the wheel kit attached, it will come separately but there are pre-drilled holes for easy fixing to the generator. 

    This unit does not come with a handle. Some manufacturers have health and safety restrictions on such fittings for units over a certain size. With the wheels fitted, these units are easy to  maneuver.

    For delivery, simply enter your postcode into the Shipping Calculator located on the product page. You can choose from home delivery or local depot pick up.

    Thanks, Steve

  • Will this run an oven using 13.7kw?

    Hi there, if the maximum draw of your oven is 13.7kW (13,700 watts), then yes, this generator will run your oven. The generator produces a maximum power of 16,000 watts and continuous running of 12,000 watts. 

  • How many amps?

    Hi There

    'This generator will produce approximately 20A per phase.
