Product Q&A

Ask Us a Question
  • Are these Powerlite generators using legitimate Honda engines? Some cheap brands use Honda engine rip-offs.

    Hi there – Most definitely yes. The Powerlite Petrol Generators use 100% authentic Honda engines purchased from Honda Australia. The engines come with a full 3 year commercial warranty, 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. Powerlite have been manufacturing generators in Australia for over 50 years and are a leading brand for tradesmen, farmers, mining companies, and professional contractors requiring portable power.

  • What is the power output wave form? Pure sine wave, modified sine wave?

    Hi Jeff, this is a conventional generator using a brushless alternator that produces a power output with harmonic distortion of +/- 5%.

    conventional generator is designed to run appliances with resistive and heavy loads, e.g. power tools, farming equipment, domestic applainces without microprocessors. Conventional generators can handle 'overloading' for short periods, where an appliance will surge (usually when starting up) briefly. However, conventional generators are not intended to run sensitive electronic equipment (e.g. TV's, laptops, mobile phones etc.). Conventional generators are built tough and are popular for trade, construction, farming, industrial use, plus certain domestic requirements. 

    The type of generator that produces pure sine wave output is an inverter generatorAn inverter generator can run sensitive electronic equipment. Note that Inverter generators cannot handle large 'overloading' that conventional generators can. Too much overload on an inverter generator will cause the generator 'trip the breaker' and stop producing power. These inverter generators are quiet, fuel efficient and are designed for recreational use, small home backup, DIY tasks, small mobile business and small events. 

     Finally, its worth mentioning AVR Generators This type of generator has an Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) fitted, so they reduce large voltage fluctuations that can potentially damage appliances. These types of generators are commonly used for Domestic backup applications and small business backup requirements. 

  • In terms of warranty, where can I find details of service agents for Powerlite Generators?

    Powerlite use premium grade components in all their generators. Starting with the engine, all of the engine manufacturers have national service agent and spare parts networks. The links below will help you with details of their respective service agents:

    For their petrol range, Powerlite mostly use Honda engines from Honda Australia. The Honda service agent network is listed HERE.

    Some petrol models have Briggs & Stratton / Vanguard engines, with their service agents listed HERE.

    For their diesel range, they use both Yanmar Engines and Hatz Engines.

    For specific generator/alternator warranty, servicing and spare parts inquiries for Powerlite Generators, you can find information HERE.

  • 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.

  • Hi will this generator run a portable air conditioner unit or are they also sensitive electronic devices with microprocessors thus requiring an invertor generator? Thanks kindlyAnanda

    HI There,

    Generally we would recommend an inverter generator or a generator fit with an AVR for electronics.

    If you chose to use this generator, a surge protector would need to be used between the generator and appliances.
