Great value genset Review by
This is a great little genset perfect for our home backup for running a fridge, pressure pump, fans and a few lights.. Really like that it has a Honda motor for reliability and easy starting. Easy to move around with a good strong frame. Does all that we need it to do. Very good value for money I thought.

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



  • 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. 

  • Are these generators suitable to use for a small stick welder for home use

    Hi There,

    A generator this small is not likely suitable for stick welding.

    Generally the smallest generator we find to be suitable for stick welding would be an 8kVA generator, and that would be for a 140A stick welder.

    If the welder is larger than 140A, you would need to consider a 10-12kVA generator.

  • 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.


  • Two part question. Part1 I understand that Honda makes the motor but who makes the alternator and electronics? I don't want to compromise a decent motor with cheap and Chinese components.Part2 Am I right in thinking this model is not rated to produce p

    Hi There,

    The alternator is made by the manufacturer NSM. They are a large manufacturer of alternators.

    For use with sensitive electronics you may want to look at the Yamaha EF2800I. This is an inverter generator.

  • Im looking for caravan backup power supply, so im looking for reliability, low noise, with the ability to run all night and able to charge or have connected sensitive devices like laptop, phone and fridge etc. Are these suitable for this application ?Als

    Hi There,

    We would recommend having a look at our inverter range of generators.

    These units are designed to be quiet, portable, and safe for sensitive electronics:
