Gentech Generators - Power You Can Trust

 

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 additions do I need to have on the generator to ensure it is Work Cover Approved?

    Hi Luke - The additional Work Cover features on a generator are;  Earth Leakage Protection, Weatherproof Outlets and Rollover Frame. 8kVA is our most popular sized trade generator and brands like Powerlite, Gentech, Dunlite and Crommelins Subaru have 8kVA models in standard, or as a Work Cover Approved. 

    Thanks!

  • How does one get a copy of the "Workcover Approval" which is sometimes required on construction sites from a WHS audit perspective.

    Hi there - each Workcover approved generator comes with a compliance sticker on the outlets confirming the RCD outlets comly with the necessary regulations. You can view this compliance sticker on the product pages of the Gentech Workcover Approved models;

  • 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.
