Product Q&A

Ask Us a Question
  • I'm considering this generator for home backup. How much is it to get an electrician to fit a transfer switch to my home so this generator can power (part) of my house during a blackout?

    Hi Anthony, great question. You've certainly identified a popular generator model for home backup power. In terms of cost for an electrician to install a transfer switch to your home, the short answer is; it depends. Not every home install is identical in terms of works required, switch configurations etc. 

    However, to give you an idea, click HERE for a video from a My Generator customer who had a local electrician install a transfer switch to enable the power supply to their house to be transferred to a portable generator when there is a mains blackout. You can see from the video that the transfer switch install cost was around $600. We would suggest this is a pretty good price, and perhaps indicative of a straightforward install job. We have heard of higher install costs than this for other jobs, usually requiring more configuration works.

    My advice would be to get a quote from your local electrician. They can also help advise what size generator best fits your particular home backup requirements. Many thanks!     

  • For the wheel kit that goes with this Pramac generator: is it already fixed on the generator, or does it come separately and therefore I would assemble it to the generator?

    Hi there, for this Pramac generator, the wheel & handle kit comes separately, with easy instructions for fitting to your generator unit.

    For some other larger generators we stock, wheel kits are fixed in our workshop prior to dispatch.

  • Along with running fridges, water pumps, lights etc, is this generator also fine to power up wifi, tv, charge laptops / phones etc?

    Hi, this generator is fitted with an AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator), meaning it reduces the voltage fluctuation to +/- 2.5%, making it suitable to run all your domestic appliances, including the items you have listed. The Yamaha EF7200E is our most popular model for household backup power and other models in that 6to 9kVA range fitted with AVR from the likes of DeWalt and Pramac are also very good. Many thanks

  • What engine oil should I use with this Generator?

    Hi - the generator requires standard engine oil;  either 10W-30 or 10W-40.

    This is available from any local service station. Many thanks 

  • Does the pramac 7.2kva petrol generator @$1,699 have electronic ignition?

    Hi there - No, the Pramac ES8000 is recoil start only and does not come with electric start. If you need this type of starting configuration, you would need to look at the Pramac S8000 which can also be optioned with wireless remote starting. 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.


  • the voltage output of this generator unit indicates it is 230Vac. Is this correct or is it actually 240Vac?

    Hi There,

    The specifications are correct. This generator outputs 230VAC which is the nominal voltage standard in Australia.

  • Hi there, I'm just wondering if a domestic electrician can wire this ES8000 into our mains board for an automatic back up for our house. Thanks in advance. Andrew

    Hi There

    This generator does not have automatic start capabilities.

    You would require a generator that is paired with an Automatic Mains Failure panel.
