    The Yamaha generator started first pull of the cord and first electric start as well. It's a handsome unit to look at and competently covers all tasks that our average sized home asks of it, when required. I would purchase the same unit again without hesitation and I would thoroughly recommend this unit to everyone as it represents excellent value for the price.

    generator arrived. read instructions. made an earth lead. added oil,fuel and connected the battery. hit the starter and away it went. it is replacing a 3500watt lectron that is to hard to start for a 70 year old. this generator easily runs a big fridge, a deep freezer. and 2 room aircons. could do with more noise suppression.

    what can I say. prompt efficient service and quick delivery. the generator was well packed making it difficult to be damaged in transit. regards james walsh

    Product arrived well packaged and in good condition. Just filled with oil and fuel then as good as looked at the start key and the unit fired up. Runs a little rough on the choke, but when warmed up..... smooth as silk. Runs all appliances no problems and is very easy to move about with the wheel kit attached. Great unit no hassles, highly recommend.

Details

Product Description

Yamaha EF7200E, 6kVA Petrol AVR Generator, 4 year warranty. A brand new model from Yamaha, the EF7200E provides a seriously impressive 11 hours of run time (quarter load) before having to refuel, thanks to a massive 28 litre fuel tank. A tough generator built to perform under demanding workloads, this new and greatly improved generator produces peak power of 6kVA and continuous running power of 5.5kVA. 

Additional features include an electric starter and digital multi-function metre display which shows running time and voltage details. This model has quickly become one of our most popular backup generators for homes that experience mains power blackouts.

This unit is capable of running most homes in an emergency situation (including taking on larger load items such as fridges and air conditioners). The AVR alternator further enhances its claim as one of the best multi-purpose generators as it can also run more sensitive equipment, including domestic appliances/tools with electric motors. 

The world-renowned Yamaha MZ360 engine is enclosed within high-strength pipe framing, making this genset also popular for tough farming and worksite environments. As an optional accessory (see Accessory List above), there is a sturdy Wheel & Handle kit which makes moving the generator around your property or worksite very easy. 

The all new 6kVA model supersedes the 5.5kVA Yamaha EF6600E which means you get more power and run time for your dollar. Exceptional value for money for a premium product that comes with a 4 year warranty and national service network.

FEATURES
  • Digital multi-function metre display. Displays cumulative running time (hours) and voltage
  • Large-capacity fuel tank
  • High-strength frame
  • Compact body - battery mounted inside frame
  • Wax pellet type automatic choke
  • Economy Idle switch

  • AVR voltage regulator
  • Auto decompressor
  • Electric starter
  • Non-fused circuit breaker system
  • Voltage meter
  • Fuel level gauge

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Is this a good generator for home power backup?
    A:

    Hi and thanks for your question; yes, this brand and this size generator is popular for home backup use, especially if you intend to run quite a few appliances including those with larger power draw such as; washing machines, larger fridge/freezers, pumps, small to medium sized air-conditioners etc. along with all your other smaller household appliances as well. 

    You can either run your required appliances directly from the generator (via extension chords etc.), or speak to an electrician about installing manual transfer switch to your home so the generator then becomes the power backup source to your house. Another option again, is to consider an auto-start generator which can also be connected to your house mains via an electrician; these type of generators will automatically restore power to your home in the event of a blackout, as opposed to manually switching the generator on.

    In all cases, just be sure you know how much power all your appliances you intend to run will draw so you get the right sized generator. Thanks, Steve.

  • Q:I am looking to buy a generator like this along with a transfer switch so my sparky can hook it up to our house for a backup power setup. Can I leave it outdoors in the elements?
    A:

    Hi Paul - unfortunately water and electricity don't mix! It is not advised you leave your generator exposed to the weather for long periods as ports and other components can be slowly damaged over time. It is recommended you shelter the generator, or store it under cover when not in use.  

    However, it is ESSENTIAL your generator is not confined to an indoor space when it is operating as it produces carbon monoxide. Cheers, Steve

  • Q:Would this generator be suitable as a backup for an offgrid solar system, or is an inverter generator required?Thanks
    A:

    Hi there, yes this generator is often used for backup to many types of off-grid solar systems. We just recommend that you speak to your solar installer to ensure it is appropriate for your particular solar set up.

    The Yamaha EF7200E is fitted with AVR so the voltage is regulated, but again it is advised you discuss with your solar installation company what the best type of generator power supply suits your type of solar battery system. Thanks    

  • Q:Can this be wired for 2 Wire start as a auto start for my offgrid system? Or do i need to buy something else to do it?
    A:

    Hi - this is not a two-wire auto start generator. If you are after an automatic start generator to support your offgrid solar sytem, then you can check out our range of Auto-Start Generators here.

    You can use this generator as a backup option to your off-grid solar (although best to check suitability with your solar installer first), however the generator operation will need to be undertaken manually.  

    Thanks.

  • Q:Whereabouts are the Yamaha service agents located? Thank you.
    A:

    Hi Martin, Yamaha has over 200 accredited service agents around the country. The following website link has the full list and you can type in your postcode to find the nearest service agent to you: http://generatoryamaha.com.au/store/locator.asp

  • Q:Is the warranty on this product a factory warranty from Yamaha? 
    A:

    Yes, you get the full manufacturer’s warranty from Yamaha Australia which would be covered by any local Yamaha service center that works on generators. 

    You can find a Yamaha local service agent by clicking HERE

  • Q:How frequently do I have to change the motor oil? Product info says to change it after the first 20hrs, and after this first change?
    A:

    Hi, after the first oil change, the recommended oil change time frame is every 6 months or 100 hours of use. Thanks.

  • Q:I am buying a Yamaha Inverter Generator from you. If I plan to not run it for a period of 4-5 months, so should I just use a fuel stabilizer?
    A:

    Yes, a good fuel stabiliser will keep your fuel fresh during periods when you are not using your generator and in your case this should be fine.

    Other good practice recommendations are:

    • Drain the excess fuel in the carburetor after use. All Yamaha generators have a fuel shut off valve (petcock) that you can switch off while the generator is running to use the residual fuel and ensure it does not sit in the carburetor
    • Start up your generator every few months for a short period to lubricate internal parts of the unit and even apply a small load to the generator ensure everything is in working order for when you need it next.
  • Q:Hi there, Will this generator run a small welding set around the farm? If so what would be the max size? It looks great for backing up the house which is its main use. Pat.
    A:

    Hi Pat, yes this generator is very popular for home backup power. In terms of running a welder, you are best to contact the welder manufacturer (Cigweld, Unimig etc.) and ask their technical department what size generator they recommend for the particular model of welder. 

    Some welders only need a 5-6kVA sized generator, but many need around 8kVA and above, so best to check with the welder manufacturer what size generator is required for your model of welder. Thanks

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

    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. Many thanks

  • Q: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?
    A:

    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!     

  • Q:Hi, what grade oil is best for this generator? I am using 10w-30 with other 4 stroke engines.
    A:

    Hi

    Yamaha recommends to use Yamalube 10w-40 engine oil for the EF7200E.

  • Q:I’m looking for a generator for my home as back up power during blackouts. It will be running through a changeover switch. Is this one safe to run all household items ie sensitive items like TV and laptops etc? Cheers
    A:

    Hi Phil, yes this generator is suitable for your described application. The Yamaha EF7200E is fitted with an Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR), which limits the voltage fluctuation meaning it is clean to run your electronic appliances. 

    This would be our most popular home backup generator to run through a manual changeover switch (also called a generator changeover switch). This switch can be fitted to your home by an electrician. 

    Many thanks

  • Q:I am told by my electrician that to wire this into my home - the generator must not have a "centre tap" - Can you advise if this has or hasn't ?
    A:

    Hi, these portable generators don’t have a centre tap. 

    Many thanks.

  • Q:I recently purchased a Yamaha EF7200E and I cannot understand the function of the volt/hour meter? I started the generator (after I put oil & petrol in it) and plugged in a 240v drill and it worked fine. How should I read the meter and do I adjust voltage
    A:

    Hi Vince, you don't need to adjust the voltage, this is set in the factory. In terms of the meter; It displays cumulative running time (in hours) to indicate when periodic maintenance should be performed, along with the current voltage. Many thanks

  • Q:Can I use this generator to charge my power tool batteries?
    A:

    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.
