This generator is perfectly suited for backup & temporary power on a medium scale

NEW UPDATED 2021 MODEL, now standard with advanced digital controller for 2 wire auto start.  Ideal for off grid usage. Most models of this capacity have a very basic 2 wire start method which is unreliable and can cause issues to the engine down the track, we have re designed this unit to use an advanced digital controller that takes into account, oil pressure, temperature, fuel capacity, battery voltage and has a logical processor for reliably starting and stopping the generator without damage to any internal components.

This diesel powered generator is well suited for battery charging and backup for small to medium off grid power systems – during poor weather or in times of higher energy demands.


  • Electric start with heavy duty starter motor
  • 2x Single phase 240V covered outlets
  • Combined LCD Volt meter / Frequency meter/ Running time counter
  • High quality bearings throughout
  • Balance shaft inside the engine to reduce vibration
  • Secondary Flywheel alternator for charging the starter battery
  • Alternator made with quality 100% copper windings
  • Circuit breaker on control panel

A 10W solar panel is supplied to keep your generator starter battery topped up, so it is ready to rock ‘n’ roll whenever you need it. This comes pre-wired with a 4m cable and alligator clips.

This generator is rated to deliver a maximum AC output of 5.7kVA (@ 0.8PF) and 5.2kVA rated continuous output.

An Automatic Transfer Switch (otherwise called an ATS) is also available for automated mains power failure backup.


– When you’re comparing standard generators online which do NOT have 2 wire auto start, this means they are of limited use to off grid systems. This model has 2 wire auto start which is ideally suited for automated backup for off grid solar power systems.

– A large majority of portable generators are not set up for off grid use as they don’t have two wire auto start, which means your power system cannot start the generator automatically when extra power is required. For some generators it is not straight forward to add a two wire start afterwards, and there may be concerns for warranty after any modifications.

– We design our generators for a purpose, not for a price. We want you to be absolutely satisfied with your generator in years to come, rather than kicking yourself for not spending a little more for quality hardware which is designed for the purpose.
