Long Running Backup Power
The Hyundai DHY6000SE standby home backup diesel generator, fitted with a 16L fuel tank which offers a maximum running time to 16 hours*, depending on the usage. The silenced sound attenuated canopy ensures low noise, and the compact design and portability makes this diesel generator extremely popular.
Power Your Home or Business
The DHY6000SE diesel generator produces a maximum power output of 5.2kW / 6.5kVA, which makes it ideal for both home and business standby/backup. For agricultural users, this diesel generator is ideal for mobile field repairs, allowing you to bring the workshop out to the field.
Equipped with an AVR alternator, reliable performance is provided by a 10hp D420 Hyundai engine, running at 3000rpm. Hyundai diesel engines are renowned for their long lifespans and reliability, and with low maintenance requirements, this generator is perfect for users with no mechanical experience.
Powering You Around The Clock
The long-running time of this generator is made possible by the impressive fuel economy, and running costs are kept low thanks to the option to power it using red diesel.
A user-friendly generator, the DHY6000SE features an electric key start for easy starting, as well as a digital control panel for monitoring statistics such as the frequency, total hours run and voltage. It has low maintenance requirements and even novice users will find it easy to use. It also has built-in safety features, such as low oil shutdown and automatic engine shutdown.
Housed in a sound attenuated canopy, the noise level produced by this generator is significantly reduced, and there are three sockets available in total:
- 1x 115V/16A
- 1x 115V/32A
- 1x 230v/32A
The DHY6000SE is ideal for standby or backup power for your home, this generator will, on average power or backup a standard house (however we recommend using an electrician to confirm your power requirements prior to purchase).
This 10hp diesel generator can also be used in workshops, on farmyards or for mobile agricultural field repairs to keep machinery mobile during peak times such as Harvest. Please note our recommended applications as detailed below.
3000rpm Diesel Generator Applications
Check oil level daily. Ensure battery is fully charged.
Oil change service intervals: after the first 20 hours, then every 100 hours or 12 months whichever is sooner.
Light duty rating is applicable for supplying power in portable and/or intermittent applications. The average load should not be lower than 30% or higher than 80% of the rated output of the generator.
Continuous use should not exceed 5 hours and annual operation should not exceed 500 hours to be within the sanctioned parameters.
Emergency / Standby Duty
Emergency duty rating is applicable for supplying power for the duration of a utility power outage. No overload capability is available.
The average load should not be lower than 30% or higher than 80% of the rated output of the generator. The annual operation should not exceed 500 hours to be within the sanctioned parameters.
Please note- diesel generators with enclosed sound attenuating canopies are often classed as ‘Silent’. This is an industry practice and does not mean the generator is actually silent. We would class this as a quiet running diesel generator.
For prime power, applications see our 1500RPM diesel generators.*All non-inverter or converter generators:Fitted with an AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) controlled alternator to maintain voltage as near to 230v as possible. Non-AVR alternators have a large fluctuation in voltage and can damage sensitive electronic equipment. If you require a portable generator to replicate the mains supply, it is recommended that a pure sine wave inverter generator is used.
Optional ATS Package
For added convenience, this diesel generator can be configured to work with an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS), or a simpler manual changeover switch (MTS / MCS). The automatic transfer set up will detect a loss of power from the mains, turn the generator on, and then turn it off again when power from the mains returns. This makes backing up your home or business completely automatic. However, the more cost-effective solution is to set this generator up with a manual changeover switch. In the event of a power cut, simply turn the generator on using the key or a '2 wire start', and once up to speed, simply turn the manual changeover switch to begin powering your home/the load via the generator. When the power returns, turn the manual changeover switch back to mains power and turn the generator off. Please note; this generator does not come as standard with any changeover switches.

- Exactly what we needed
I did a bit of research for a suitable standby generator for our home as we get frequent winter power cuts.
I bundled in the automatic transfer switch and I'm really pleased with what we've bought.
It seems to power exactly what we needed it to and is a lot quieter than I thought.
really happy with it, thank you

- Perfect backup generator
living in a rural area we get frequent power cuts so after a lot of research I decided to buy the dhy6000se.
Glad I did, simple to use, seems to run for hours on little fuel and keeps us from being in the dark.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Is the blue connection 32 Amp?
A. Yes, the blue is 32A, and there is a 32A and a 16A 115v also.
Q. Are there glow plugs on this generator?
A. No, but there is a pre-heater button on the generator fascia which in cold weather allows you to warm up the air in the inlet manifold, which helps the engine start easier and run smoother.
Q. It it just a standby or can it run all day?
A. It is just a standby generator. Due to the engine which runs at 3000rpm, it's not conducive for daily or what might be considered 'commercial' application. The nature of a generator like this is that, during a powercut, and even in a prolonged outage, this generator will work without any issues, with the only stoppage needed being a break for refueling. In fact, in December 2013, during the power cuts over the Christmas period, many of our customers who had this generator found that they needed to run this generator from anywhere between 4-7 days just by topping it up every now and again. The generator can cope with prolonged periods of running when needed, but it will require an extended rest period after this. The idea of using it for home and small business backup will mean that once the power is back on, it is stored well and maintenance carried out as and when needed. Using it all day every day is not recommended, however it can and will perform for you to keep the lights on when the power goes out
