Kubota KJ Series |13.8KVA Single Phase Generator | 2 Wire Auto Start




Commodore is excited to partner with Kubota to expand our premium range of generators. The Kubota KJ-S130 is a four pole cabinet style, single phase generator. This generator is powered by genuine Kubota engines which have stood the test of time in Australian conditions, and all over the world.


An Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) is available which allows this generator to be used for automatic mains power failure protection. If the mains power fails, the ATS will disconnect from the mains then start the generator to safely switch over & supply power to your property. Once the mains power is restored, the ATS will shut down the generator and re-connect your property to the mains power grid. Please contact us for more information.


The KJ Series features:

Low RPM’s: Unlike many other generators and even some of Kubota’s other generators, this premium generator runs at 1500RPM, which makes the unit quieter and more reliable, as less vibration (caused by RPM’s) results in less wear and tear

Two wire auto start: A large majority of generators are not set up for off grid as they don’t have two wire auto start, which means the generator will not kick in automatically to charge your batteries and/or provide direct back up to your house. However the Kubota KJ series has 2 wire auto start integrated in all of it’s generators which makes it perfect for off grid living. With some generators it is impossible to add a two wire start onto it afterwards as the controller isn’t designed to do so, other generators you can add a two wire auto start later but it’s difficult and expensive to do.
