This superb dual voltage, heavy duty 3000 W petrol powered generator from SGS Engineering not only offers exceptional value for money but also and suits a wide range of users who demand a reliable source of remote, portable electricity. Ideal for most standby or backup power requirements.
The SPG3000 delivers up to 3.0 kW / 3.75 kVA of power to light trade, domestic and leisure users.
115 V 16 amp socket and a 230 V 16 amp socket, and in addition has a 12V DC 8.3amp output.
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 from SGS generators.
It is fitted with a large fuel tank for up to 8 hours continuous operation @ 50% load between refuelling, is powered by a reliable and easy to start 4-stroke petrol engine and is protected by a sturdy all steel surround frame fitted with large rubber wheels for manoeuvrability.
Fitted with an AVR (automatic voltage regulator) to sense and maintain a constant voltage as the load on the generator varies.
Tips on ordering the correct generator:
It is recommended to leave 20-25% headroom when ordering a generator. So a 1000W kettle 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 drill 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.
