This SGS dual voltage, heavy duty SPG2200 petrol generator provides a reliable, efficient source of portable electrical backup or standby power for light trade, DIY, leisure and home users alike!
It delivers up to 2.2 kW / 2.8 kVA of power from a 115 V 16 amp socket or a 230 V 16 amp socket, and in addition has a 12V DC 8.3amp output. Continuous power is rated at 2 kW / 2.5 kVA. The power is delivered from a reliable 5.5 HP 4-stoke petrol engine with an easy-start recoil mechanism and low oil level alert. A spacious 15 litre fuel tank gives approximately 8 hours of run time at 50% load. A circuit breaker is fitted to protect against overload and an AVR to sense and maintain a constant voltage as the load on the generator varies.
All our generators come with 100% copper motor coils instead of the more commonly used (and cheaper) aluminium coils found on other models. This ensures a greater and more reliable power output.
It's also built into a sturdy, neat and economical all-steel frame to protect the generators components as well as provide useful lifting and securing point.
Tips on ordering the correct generator:
It is recommended to leave 20-25% headroom when ordering a generator. So a 1000W heater should be run on a 1200W generator, to help extend the life of the generator.
Resistive and inductive loads:
A generator can be used for two types of loads – resistive and inductive. A resistive load has no moving parts and no start-up power requirement – for example kettles, light bulbs and heaters. An inductive load applies to most items with a moving part – for example motors, air compressors, power washers, drills and hoovers. Items with an inductive load require three times their rated wattage at start-up. So a 1000W hoover/vacuum would need up to 3000W at start-up.
NOTE: The generator will require filling with 0.6 litres of 10W30 grade oil before first use.
