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.

    3000rpm Diesel Generator Applications

    Check oil level daily. Ensure battery is fully charged.

    Oil change service intervals: after first 20 hours, then every 100 hours or 12 months whichever is sooner.

    Light Duty

    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.

    Average load should not be lower than 30% or higher than 80% of the rated output of the generator. Annual operation should not exceed 500 hours to be

    within the sanctioned parameters.


    For prime power applications see our 1500RPM diesel generators.


    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.
