Please make sure you review each precaution carefully.

Pay special attention to statement preceded by the following words.

WARNING indicates a strong possibility of severe personal injury or loss of life if instructions are not followed.

CAUTION indicates a possibility of personal injury or equipment damage if instructions are not followed.

Do not operate the generator near gasoline or gaseous fuel because of the potential danger of explosion or fire. Do not fill the fuel tank with fuel while the engine is running. Do not smoke or use open flame near the fuel tank. Be careful not to spill fuel during refueling. If fuel is spilt, wipe it off and let dry before starting the engine.

WARNING

WARNING

Operate the generator on a level surface. It is not necessary to prepare a special foundation for the generator. However, the generator will vibrate on an irregular surface, so choose a level place without surface irregularities. If the generator is tilted or moved during operation, fuel may spill and / or the generator may tip over, causing a hazardous situation. Proper lubrication cannot be expected if the generator is operated on a steep incline or slope. In such a case, piston seizure may occur even if the oil is above the upper level.

WARNING

Pay attention to the wiring or extension cords from the generator to the connected device. If the wire is under the generator or in contact with a vibrating part, it may break and possibly cause a fire, generator burnout, or electric shock hazard. Replace damaged or worn cords immediately.

WARNING

Do not operate the generator inside a room, cave, tunnel, or other insufficiently ventilated area. Always operate it in a well-ventilated area, otherwise the engine may become overheated, and the poisonous carbon monoxide gas contained in the exhaust gases will endanger human lives. Keep the generator at least 1 meter (3 feet) away from any structure or building during use.

If the generator must be used indoors, the area must be well-ventilated and extreme caution must be taken regarding the discharge of exhaust gases.

WARNING

Do not place in flammables near the generator. Be careful not to place fuel, matches, gunpowder, oily cloths, straw, trash, or any other in flammables near the generator.

WARNING

Do not enclose the generator nor cover it with a box. The generator has a built-in forced air cooling system, and may become overheated if it is enclosed. If generator has been covered to protect it from the weather during non use, be sure to remove it and keep it well away from the area during generator use.

WARNING

Do not operate in rain, in wet or damp conditions, or with wet hands. The operator may suffer severe electric shock if the generator is wet due to rain or snow.

WARNING

Keep children and all bystanders at a safe distance from work areas.

WARNING

If wet, wipe and dry it well before starting. Do not pour water directly over the generator, nor wash it with water.

WARNING

Be extremely careful that all necessary electrical grounding procedures are followed during each and every use. Failure to do so can be fatal.

WARNING

It is absolutely essential that you know the safe and proper use of the power tool or appliance that you intend to use. All operators must read, understand and follow the tool/appliance owners manual. Tool and appliance applications and limitations must be understood. Follow all directions given on labels and warnings. Keep all instruction manuals and literature in a safe place for future reference.

WARNING

Use only "LISTED" extension cords. When a tool or appliance is used outdoors, use only extension cords marked "For Outdoor Use". Extension cords, when not in use should be stored in a dry and well ventilated area.

WARNING

Always switch off and disconnect tools or appliances when not in use, before servicing, adjusting, or installing accessories and attachments.

WARNING

Make sure the engine is stopped before starting any maintenance, servicing or repair.

CAUTION

NOTE : Make sure maintenance and repair of the generator set are performed by properly trained personnel only.

Electrical loads such as incandescent lamps and hot plates require the same wattage to start as is needed to maintain use.

Loads such as fluorescent lamps require 1.2 to 2 times the indicated wattage during start-up.

Loads for mercury lamps require 2 to 3 times the indicated wattage during start-up.

Electrical motors require a large starting current. Power requirements depend on the type of motor and its use. Once enough "surge" is attained to start the motor, the appliance will require only 50% to 30% of the wattage to continue running.

Most electrical tools require 1.2 to 3 times their wattage for running under load during use. For example, a 5000 watt generator can power a 1800 to 4000 watt electrical tool.

Loads such as submersible pumps and air compressors require a very large force to start. They need 3 to 5 times the normal running wattage in order to start. For example, a 5000 watt generator would only be able to drive a 1000 to 1700 watt pump.

Some appliances need a "surge" of energy when starting. This means that the amount of electrical power needed to start the appliance may exceed the amount needed to maintain its use. Electrical appliances and tools normally come with a label indicating voltage, cycles / Hz, amperage (amps) and electrical power needed to run the appliance or tool. Check with your nearest dealer or service center with questions regarding power surge of certain appliances or power tools.

6. WATTAGE INFORMATION

To determine the total wattage required to run a particular electrical appliance or tool, multiply the voltage figure of the appliance/tool by the amperage (amps) figure of same. The voltage and amperage (amps) information can be found on a name plate which is normally attached to electrical appliances and tools.

NOTE The following wattage chart is general guide only. Refer to your specific appliance for correct wattage.
