Product Description

Long lasting, high performing and robust, this generator is the cream of the crop. With a massive 34-litre fuel tank, this workhorse is ready to power up all your equipment around the farm and construction site. And it runs for over 6.5 hours at 80% load.

The Honda V Twin GX690 petrol engine with electric starting system delivers 15 kVA of power, with the fuel economy and reliability you’d expect from Honda. The result is enough grunt for welders, compressors, larger pumps and other heavy duty equipment. And because the fuel consumption is only 4.10 litre per hour, builders and farmers can enjoy better bang for your buck.

Create your perfect generator by adding a remote start, large wheel kit, and earth leakage protection.

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

Generator is a good unit, frame not quite square and 32 amp leakage boxes not mounted 100% straight. Does not effect operation. Still happy with it.

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. 

  • 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



  • How is it that this generator has 15Amp outlets, but the generator's power rating is greater than 15Amps? (as 15Amps equates to 3600watts on a 240Volt appliance). Presumably you can get more than 15Amps out of the outlets then?

    Yes, that is correct. A 15 Amp outlet can deliver more power than 15 Amps for a short period, as there is no circuit breaker fitted to the generator as standard. You can briefly pull the full rated power amount of the generator (continuous and maximum) through the 15 Amp outlet.. noting that this is only for a short time - i.e. when you are first starting up an appliance such as a comprossor, drop saw, air conditioner etc. it may draw around 30 Amps (as an example) to start up, and then drop back down to 10 Amps to keep running.  

    However, if your appliance draws more than 15 Amps continuously, it is not recommended you run it for prolonged periods from a 15 Amp outlet, as it is likely to result in overheating issues. It may be prudent to consider re-fitting the outlets to a larger size to fit your continuous power requirement (i.e. 20 Amp, or 32 Amp outlet for example) - this can be configured upon request at extra cost. Thank you.

  • What is the expected continuous power output - why is this generator rated for 12kW but only has 2 x 15A sockets which is under 8kW?How does this differ from the cheaper EP11000HSRE (which also has 2 x 15A sockets). Thanks

    Hi Andrew, good question. This unit is rated at 12000 watts continuous, as you say. The Gentech 11kVA (EP11000HSRE) has a continuous power rating of 8000 watts. 

    A 15 Amp outlet can deliver more power than 15 Amps, as there is no circuit breaker fitted to the generator as standard. However, it is not recommended that significantly more power than 15 Amps is drawn from the outlet for prolonged periods as this can sometimes create over-heating issues. 

    The 2 x 15 Amp outlets is the standard configuration for most portable trade gensets around this size, however larger outlets (e.g. 32 Amp) can be configured upon request at extra cost, or be fitted after market by an electrician. Thanks.   


  • Could you please let me know if the 15kva genset has a AVR system on the generator?

    Hi there - no, Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) is not fitted to this generator. If you need AVR for this type/size generator, you can check out the Powerlite 15kVA Generator powered by Honda - refer to the accessories list and AVR can be added as an optional extra. 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.
