Product Q&A

Ask Us a Question
  • I plan to leave the generator outside my long term camp setup, what's your best inverter generator that can handle all weather conditions, especially heavy rain?

    Hi there, sounds like a nice set up! The short answer is that electricity and water don’t mix. Whilst we are aware that some people run their inverter gensets in all weather conditions, it is not recommended as safe or best practice for your equipment, as inverter generators do not come with weatherproof outlets as standard.

    Ideally, you would somehow shelter your generator from the rain. But just remember that fully enclosing your generator whilst its running is not an option - generators need fresh air intake for the engine to run and they emit carbon dioxide, so they should never be contained. Overall, some rain protection but also room for fresh air intake and fume emission is what you need.

  • Will this generator run the pump for my house water system?

    Hi, that is a tough question to answer without knowing more details about your pump. Water pumps come in a range of sizes and some smaller pumps can run on a small 2000 watt generator, whereas some house pumps would need around 6000 – 8000 watts or more!...electric pumps are notorious for having quite high starting loads. So, you would need to find out the peak load (in Watts) required to start your pump. If you cannot find the starting load from the product manual or data plate, you could contact the manufacturer of your pump, or engage an electrician to take a reading.

    Once you have that all important stating load amount for your pump, you can then choose the right sized generator to run your pump.

  • What is an "inverter" generator?

    Hi Alison, and thanks for your question. An inverter is a lightweight microprocessor that converts power from direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC). They are a fairly recent advancement in technology from the older style conventional generators. What it means is that the inverter generators produce very clean power which is required to run sensitive electronic equipment such as laptops, mobile phones, camera equipment etc. 

    The other benefits of inverter generators are that they are typically much smaller and lighter than standard open frame style generators and tend to operate at very low noise levels (less than 60 decibels). Lastly, they are also very efficient; their engine speed automatically adjusts in accordance with the required load, maximising fuel efficiency. 

    Overall, they are an extremely popular portable power source for camping, caravanning, DIY tasks, small business uses and home power back up. Inverter generators range from around 1000 watts up to 7000 watts.   

  • Do you guys have some general tips for generator maintenance? Ta

    Hi there - good question, yes, we do! Firstly, as a safety note, always stop the engine and let the generator cool down before starting any maintenance work. The five main general tips are;

    1. Replace engine oil
    2. Check spark plug, replace if necessary
    3. Check fuel level and ensure it is fresh fuel (fuel left for a long time can go "off")
    4. Check air filter, replace if necessary
    5. Clean muffler cover and check spark arrestor 

    You can also check out this helpful video on generator maintenance tips.

    For further maintenance help, you should take your generator to a small engine specialist or an accredited generator service technician. 

  • HiWhat is the run time for the HY6500SEi at say 50% capacity?Thanks

    Hi There, this unit is rated to run for 6 hours at 75% load.

  • The specs say it is an 8.1 kVA unit which is 8100 watts yet it has a maximum output of 6500 W and continuous output of roughly 5000 W. Why the difference between the kVA rating and the output? What am I not understanding?

    Hi There,

    These are the specifications supplied by the manufacturer.

    It would appear they are stating the generator has a ~0.8 powerfactor.

    If the generator had a powerfactor of 1, the kVA and Watts would be the same. 

  • Can this generator be run parrallel to another generator?

    Hi There,

    This generator can not be run in parallel with another generator sorry.

  • Can this gene be started remotely with a 2 wire wired start signal?

    Hi There,

    This model of generator does not have a two wire auto start feature sorry.

    You can find our range of two wire cabale generators here:

  • will this be able to run full size appliances, say a full size washing machine and dryer? power tools? air conditioning? does kit use batteries?

    HI There,

    Yes this generator should be able to power appliances like what you have mentioned.

    You just need to make sure the generator is not overloaded.
