FAQ

Does the price include installation?

No, the price doesn't include installation. Installations are all different and require varying length of cable, time and distances to be travelled. In addition to this installations need to be done by a qualified electrician to issue a valid Certificate of Compliance (COC) for your insurance. We will gladly recommend a qualified local installer, please ask your Sales Consultant for more information.

Do we offer installation?

No, but we do have recommended installers throughout Southern Africa who will be able to assist you with your installation and sizing your generator.

Does the price include delivery?

All prices exclude delivery. Due to the nature of the goods and their size they have to be delivered by a specialised truck and rigging crew. Hence delivery is charged extra based on the distance and complexity of the delivery.

Do I need anything else to connect the generator?

Yes, you'll need either an Automatic (ATS) or Manual change over switch in order to link the generator into your properties electrical distribution board on the electrical side. If you're using LP Gas then you'll need to have a gas installer connect 2 to 3 bottles depending on the model with a manifold.

Tell me about the Warranty?

The warranty is 5 Years or 1000 Hours whichever occurs first. It is a limited warranty. Travel to site is not included in the warranty. The goods need to be returned to us or a call out will be charged. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions of sale and the Warranty Card for further information on the warranty. Warranty is held with the agency where you bought the generator. If you have purchased your generator in Johannesburg then the warranty is held in Johannesburg etc.

Is this product approved by Egoli Gas?

Yes, our gas generators have been tested with Egoli Gas. You will need to ensure that you have the correct size meter and that a qualified Egoli Gas installer connects up your generator to the pipeline. Running your generator on Egoli gas is the most cost effective method of running your generator.

Can I run this generator on Natural Gas and LPG?

Yes, our gas generators can be configured as natural gas generators or LPG generators. This is achieved simply by turning a nozzle (tool-less conversion) inside the generator.

Can I run this generator on Biogas?

No it is not recommended to use biogas with this generator. The use of biogas will void the warranty of the generator. Depending on the composition of the gas the manufacturer may approve specific biogas applications if the gas meets the minimum specifications of the manufacturer.

How many gas bottles do I need?

You need a minimum of 2 bottles on the 5 and 8 kVA gas generators. This is to ensure that you have enough gas flow to the generator. The generator does not run at a constant speed and therefore the amount of gas consumed fluctuates. On the 10 and 13kVA generators you need a minimum of 3 gas bottles. (19kg +)
