Product overview

With up to 3500W of power, this tough, simple steel frame generator is a great option for powering up bigger tools or running essentials like fridges during a power outage.

The traditional steel frame design means it can handle life in the back of the ute or way down the back paddock, while the while the convenient push-to-reset circuit breaker and a low oil shut-off sensor ensure safe operation. It also features voltage overload protection to prevent overloads and keep your valuable equipment safe from voltage spikes, plus a voltmeter allows you to monitor power output at a glance

Humming away at 75% load you’ll get a solid 10 hours of runtime from the 15L fuel tank and reliable 224cc engine, which should be plenty to see you through a power cut or a solid day’s work.

If you’re after a grunty, no-fuss generator then look no further. Order yours today.

q: Hi I have a grunty vacuum that has a motor wattage of 3300w. Will this unit suffice? Thanks
a: No. With generators you really need to look at the rated watts for the best idea of what it can consistently handle. Convention is to show the max output achievable (in this case 3500W), however this is only available for short bursts to accommodate appliances with high momentary starting loads, so really you need to look at the rated output (3000W here) for the most real world useable maximum. Even if the rated output here was 3500, we'd suggest giving yourself a bit more headroom.

q: Will this run a fridge, a freezer, a TV, a desk lamp and a desktop computer concurrently?
a: You may perhaps be reaching the limit in terms of start up load with all that. Although it's hard to say without knowing the exact specs of you appliances. Another thing to consider is getting a digital inverter model if you are going to be running sensitive electronics such as computers. Feel free to give our sales team a call and they'll be happy to talk specifics.

q: Needing a back up gen for the cloudy day to top up caravan battery and charge up ebike batteries, etc. Would this be ok or am I better going for inverter type.
a: Yes this should be fine.

q: Will this run at their startup a tall fridge and a medium-sized chest freezer...? But nothing more.
a: Both together is unlikely, but really the easiest way to figure it out is to find out the wattage requirements for your particular fridge & freezer.

q: Will this run a 1800 w air compressor
a: It's depends on the exact start-up draw of your compressor, but generally you will probably need 6000W momentarily to start this. Have a look online for more info around start up draw on your specific compressor.

q: Will this run a 55inch 4ktv and internet modem at the same time please?
a: This would be plenty of power for that, but we'd suggest an inverter generator to protect your TV - have a look at the NEWMAN DIGITAL INVERTER GENERATOR 1000W. This is enough power, but with the inverter tech for a smoother power supply.

q: Hi there will this power a 3hp air compressor? Thanks
a: Generally electric air compressors have some of the highest start-up loads of commonly encountered machines, so by a general estimate you need to be looking at approx 4x the running watts of your compressor (3hp = 2.2kW). There are some good calculators available online to help make this clearer.

I love this little generator. Have installed it on my boat and over the weekend it saved our asses several times on a trip from Auckland to Algies Bay. Now to sort my battery issues.

Picked new gene, broken pieces in the bottom of the packaging. Electrical wiring cover shattered. Trying for a replacement or refund at this stage. Haven't had a chance to run it up. Packaged back up ready for return and now I have to unpackage in all to take a photo to send to Trade Tested so they know its broken. Seriously not a happy camper at the moment. More to follow.

Arrived quickly and safely, easy to use, goes well. When other people were turning it off and on during the day there was some confusion about which way was which with the choke, I'm sure its in the instructions but not immediately obvious to a novice. Otherwise no problems, bought the oil to go with it which worked out great. Very happy with purchase.

Filled the generator with oil and petrol, pulled the chord a couple of times and it burst into life. Load tested the unit and was extremely happy with the performance.
