Super Quiet Generator - Great for our Caravan Trips Review by Jack Fielding ,

Product Review

Great service and prompt delivery. Great value for money and I was really surprised at how quiet it is. We have a 17 ft Jayco van and free stay most of the time - we use this generator mostly for appliances that the solar is not powerful enough for like washing machine and my wife's hair dryer. Really simple to use and hasn't missed a beat. Thanks

Good value and very easy to use Review by John C ,

Product Review

High quality machine, starts 1st pull every time. Very easy to operate. As quiet as a Honda for less money. High quality Japanese machine. I get almost 7 hours run time on it. Would buy it for full price in a heartbeat.

High Quality Machine, Very Impressed! Review by Tom Lawrence ,

Product Review

I recently purchased this generator, primarily for providing power at the racetrack and as a general backup in times of power failure. The unit looked good on paper, in online reviews and in pictures. I've learn't to trust brands manufactured in Japan over the years. To my delight, the generator proved to be of excellent quality, easy to start and use and very much up to generating claimed power! I'm really happy with it and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a stable, high quality power source, with good fuel consumption and very little noise. The only cautionary note I'd add is that my unit shipped with little or no oil, so you really do want to check this prior to starting it up. On the positive side, my failure to check highlighted the fact that the low oil cutout works perfectly! Highly recommended!

  • Q:Subaru 1650w genset is the 1650w peak power or continuous rated power

    This inverter generator has a maximum output of 1650w and a rated or continuous output of 1320w.

  • Q:How big is it size wise? Thanks, Mitch

  • Q: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. 

  • Q:My product manual for my inverter generator mentions an 'earthing wire / earthing stake' - do I need this?

    Hi there, good question. This is mentioned in generator manuals and is a safety feature that will earth the generator. You do have the option to fit an 'earth wire'. Connecting an earth wire and stake is an option available to customer's that purchase a generator.

    An earth wire and stake is not supplied with generators that we sell and is application specific. In practice, we do not see customer's do this, especially for inverter generators. It can be something that is implemented for more specialized generators on mining work sites for example...for common applications, it is not common practice to 'earth' the generator with a wire and stake. If you are in doubt, and you have a specialized generator requirement that may need 'earthing', please consult an electrician. Hope that helps.

  • Q:What is the dB noise rating for this unit?

    Hi there, this generator is has a noise level rating of 59 decibels at a distance of 7 metres. 

    Many thanks.
