Questions and answers

q: AVR stands for Automatic Voltage Control right...and this generator uses a brush less why do you say it is not a sine wave generator....that term is only used when talking about inverters....all alternators are sine wave
a: There is difference between the pure sine wave of an inverter and the modified sine wave of an AVR - for most applications the AVR is fine, but for highly sensitive electronics the pure sine wave may be the safer option. We obviously need to err on the side of caution for this type of thing. Perhaps the best thing would be to do some reading around the specific needs of your intended application to make an informed decision.

q: Hi. Is this generator pure sine wave?
a: No, although it's pretty smooth thanks to the AVR, you could combo it with an inverter?

q: Gday, will this be able to run a 200amp Arc welder?

q: Hello, Is this safe to run battery chargers for lithium ion batteries. Thanks
a: Most likely, this has an AVR so the output is steady, however you will need to check the specs of your charger to see whether only pure sine wave is acceptable.

q: Would this run a household when required as a back up power system?
a: Yes, this should handle most household items. However you'll need to asses what the particular load would be in your specific situation. Feel free to give our sales team a call for more info.

q: Is this ideal for a mobile coffee van?
a: Yes this would be a good option. The ideal option would be one of the Hyundai RV generators we also sell, they are designed to be fully integrated into a vehicle and will be much quieter amongst other things. Maybe have a look at both before deciding, feel free to call our sales team to talk through the options.

Loud and heavy and broken

In addition to being extremely loud it broke down after 4 hours when the avr died and 312volts was outputted. If you are looking for portability I wouldn't recommend this gene either.

The 5500w generator would not start. After 4 weeks it needs a new starter motor after 123hrs.I am off the grid and now zero in my batteries.

almost perfect

It could be quieter and the issue I have with it its the running time , even its not more than 30% loaded still under 12h, could benefit from larger tank or more efficient power distribution under lower loads. besides that awesome

Good but loud

about 1 year ago


Great hard working, really good output. Have checked with a meter and runs at 110db so hardly silent. Even the machine is labeled at 100 db not the 70 in description. So overall good but needs to be 150m away from anything

Not so silent

about 1 year ago


Generator works well - I expected no less, but a complete mis-namer having the word 'silent' as part of the title. When queried about the nosiness was told it should be no louder than a shower. Auckland obviously have extremely noisy showers.
