What a Quality Cheap generator

I must admit, Chinese - Price is too low to be good?
I am pleasantly surprised, it's runs brilliantly.
The only thing I can fault is the manual is written In some kind of Chi-Enlish. Must admit I called about this and they emailed me a much better version.

I have this to back up my house and have only used it 3 times in 2 years.
It still runs perfectly well, money very well spent

I've one of these for only about 6 months, and it's done relatively low hours. So far it's shown no issues, and I've loaded it up considerably, probably more than peak output, and it's only tripped the breaker a few times.
It's been used for blackouts, and has no problems running the fridge, tv, computers playstation etc..., as well as lighting, small hot water system and a pump. Despite not being an inverter model, it has no issues running more sensitive equipment, although anything thats been plugged in has always been going through a sui table surge protecter power board, and with tank water the pump cuts in and out regularly, and the generator keeps supplying constant power with no noticeable fluctuations.
At one point i plugged a large-ish wall mounted air conditioner into it to see what would happen, and although it definitely feels the load (you can hear the engine working harder), it still runs it, both for cooling and heating, flat out. The only issue here was if the a/c compressor cut in and out repeatedly, the circuit breaker on the generator occasionally tripped.
As it only has low hours, its hard to say how the quality is long term, but so far its been great machine.
Good source of power

Great, quiet generator.
I love this generator, just a little heavy for my liking.

I use it on my boat, wanted a lighter way to go. All the petrol generators are light, but had to go diesel. Very happy with my purchase.
I might get the 2.5 Hornet for my caravan. Blue Diamond is cheap, but good quality too.
Backs up my house

Im a big fan of honda generators. Particularly the inverter series. However, needing something with a larger power output and longer runtime with diesel i looked at this model. It is now installed in a custom built shed and controlled by an ATS and so far works perfectly. Noise wise then yes if you stand next to it then its very noisy. 25+m away and its barely audible. Ok for me with large property but may annoy neighbors in for eg a terrice location.

Decent generator at a reasonable price,bear in mind it is a diesel so if you are looking for something super silent at this price you will be looking for something that doesn,t exist.
Want Reliable Power? This Is A Beast!

Purchased this gen set for use in Adelaide on HOT dry days when we have rolling blackouts, very common in our area, expected the remote controlled unit, but after receiving the product, found it was only electric start and had no digital power/hour meter, but came with analog meters which are just fine for my use, it has ATS capability which is fantastic if you have an ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch), it will start the gen set and transfer to gen power when the grid goes down, and stop the gen set and transfer back when the grid goes back up.
This unit has a 12HP 4 Stroke Air Cooled Diesel Engine, electric start and all the protection you need in a great quality silenced canopy on wheels. Only around 70db @ 7 meters, so very quiet.
This unit is solid and handles both air conditioners, my fridge and separate freezer, along with a room of electronics very easily. Smallish on board diesel fuel tank, only 13 liters which will last around 8 hours at 6KVA (100% Load) and around 10 to 12 at 50% load.
Unit is fitted with a 25A RCD [full (ELCB) earthleakage protection fitted] and both 15A outlets are protected with RCD and double circuit breakers (22.5A MAX). Perfect for your own protection. It also has a earthing point for the gen set itself (Highly recommended to earth all gen sets).
I highly recommend this unit for small applications, but BDM offers larger gen sets if needed. This unit is a beauty, and offers everything that I need for those drawn out Adelaide summers.
