ToolShed Trade 2.8 KVA Petrol Generator

This generator is fitted with a high quality, efficient, 4 stroke pull start petrol engine that is easy to start and is quite while running. The engine is fitted with overhead valves for reliability and is air cooled it also has a low oil cut out this is a great feature as it will automatically turn the engine off if it detects low oil.

The generator unit is wound with heavy duty copper wire for long running life and is AVR (automatic voltage regulator) controlled. This means the unit adjusts the voltage up and down depending on the load the generator is put under to keep a smooth constant power supply. Great for running equipment such as microwaves etc… that don’t like voltage fluctuations. (not suitable for sensitive electronic equipment such as computers etc...)

The generator has an output power supply of 2.5Kw (10.8 Amps) and peak output supply of 2.8Kw (12.17 Amps)

All of this is housed in a robust frame for protection and fitted with a large 15 litre fuel tank that will provide about 13 hours of continuous running under full load.

Fitted with two power outlets with a protective flap to stop debris getting into the plug when the generator is not in operation and is also protected by a circuit breaker so the machine cannot be overloaded. On the front panel there is a volt meter so you can easily see what voltage is being put out.

Loads such as electric motors have what is called an in rush current, this is a large amount of power going into the machine to start the machine then once it is going it uses less power. This needs to be factored into the equation so a rule of thumb is roughly 1.5 times the running wattage (this is more for larger induction motors such as compressors) so a generator 3000 watts (3KVA) or larger is required.
