Reliable Backup Power 

This standby diesel generator from Hyundai provides a significant boost in power over the entry level model, the DHY6000SE providing a maximum power output of 6kW / 7.5kVA. This 800w of extra power provides you with the opportunity to keep more appliances powered in your home or business during a power cut, or for more tools to be powered during agricultural repairs. The compact design, low noise output and portablility makes it one of the most popular generators on the UK market.

Hyundai Powered 

Making the very most of Hyundai's renowned diesel engines, the DHY8000SE is powered by a 12hp D500 engine, running at 3000rpm. This, combined with the large 16L fuel tank, provides a maximum running time of 16 hours, depending on the usage.

This is the ideal diesel generator for anyone looking to keep running costs low, with exceptional fuel economy and the option to power it using red diesel, which is cheaper than standard road diesel.

Powering sensitive electronic appliances is also perfectly safe with this generator, as the AVR alternator produces a pure sine wave output.

Safe and Convenient

A user friendly generator, the DHY8000SE features 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 ol shutdown and automatic engine shutdown.

Silent Diesel Generator

Housed in a sound attenuated canopy, the noise level produced by this generator is significantly reduced. For easy transportation, it's also fitted with wheels and a handle to push/pull it.

There are three sockets in total:

  • 1x 115V/16A
  • 1x 115v/32A
  • 1x 230v/32A

Automatic Transfer Switch Optional

For added convenience, this diesel generator can be configured to work with an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS), which 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. ATS system sold separately.

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. Can an extension exhaust be fitted to this unit to take exhaust out of a garage building safely?

A. Yes, on this model we can provide a flexible exhaust to vent fumes away. However, I do have to add a major warning. The reason we supply this extension is not to vent harmful fumes away from human or animal life, but to draw harmful gases away from the generator in order to prevent it drawing the back into itself. This generator is an air-cooled unit, so if it was to draw these fumes back in, it could potentially be quite damaging. This generator should in no event, be run with or without the exhaust extension, in a dwelling where life may be exposed to any potential gases. The exhaust extension is not designed for this purpose, and some small but still potentially harmful leaks may occur, and therefore you should not place this generator in a dwelling connected to a house, such as a garage.

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. What size are the circuit breakers?

A. Upon test, we found that they trip out at 24.955A, with the incoming comfortably running at 21.7A.
