So, what happens when you power a 3000 W jug from a 1200 W generator? Does the jug work, but slowly? Or does the generator burst into flames? Or something else?
The generator will cut out when the overload is triggered!

Would this run a 230v air compressor?
You need to confirm Watts of the electric motor.

Does it produce carbon monoxide? Does it have any safety features around that?
This uses a petrol engine, so yes of course. This can only be used in well ventilated areas.

Does this produce a stable power delivery, suitable for running a computer or television?
We suggest looking at an inverter model if this is your main intended usage.

Hi looking for a cheap generator for camping would this one light up 2 lights and a jug at the same time cheers.
For what seems like a minor appliance, a kettle has particularly high wattage needs. A quick google shows an average wattage of 1800W for a kettle - which it will need continuously until the water boils. So depending on your jug, even a 2000W generator will probably not be enough, something around the 3000W + mark would probably be ballpark for running a kettle and a couple of lights reliably.

Hi there, would this run our 240V fridge in our caravan and possibly lights at the same time?
It depends on the fridge really, as a rough estimate for a fridge multiply the running watts x approx 4 to get the 'start up' needs of the appliance. This will vary depending on type of fridge, but is a good rule of thumb.

Would this generator be suitable to charge my 12volt rv house battery,how noisy is it.thanks?
Yes this will be fine - it's pretty small, so not too noisy for this style of generator. The official rating as per the specs is 66dB @7m @ 75% load.

1200w gen

I got this as a power outage workaround on my rain water tank. The pump is rated at 750w. The generator copes fine with the extra start up load and circuit breaker holds. Great value.

Weekend warrior Bay of Plenty
Newman Generator 1200kW

I bought/collected this 1200kW machine. I agree with other reviewers, it's a good unit. Its 4x stroke, seems well made. 1. Easy instructions, easy to assemble. 2. Easy start 3. Not that noisy It is currently running as we speak showing 220v. I meter the output with 800w connected and its 208v real time. This is a 900w machine max. Having said that it has performed continuously for 36x hours and does not get hot at the generator end.
