Dunlite FAQ's

Things I should know before buying a generator?

What size generator do I need?

What will happen if I overload my generator?
As a rule portable generators should never be overloaded, however all Dunlite portable petrol sets can provide twice their normal output for a short period (e.g. during start-ups). 

For example, a 4.4 kVA Dunlite generator can deliver up to 3500 running Watts and 7000 starting Watts.

Important to note: If a generator is running for long periods of time with an overload (i.e. that is a rating above the maximum rating of the set) there are various things that may occur:
  • Overheating of the engine
  • Overheating of the alternator, which will burn out the windings.
  • Breakdown in oil consistency causing low oil pressure and engine failure.
  • Reduced generator lifespan.
