Producing power with lower carbon emissions and improved efficiency in cost effective units is what Loncin are all about and this is apparent in the excellent LC3000-AS Generator.If you live in a rural, isolated, area, perhaps a small village or somewhere far away from the nearest town, power cuts can be a more than an inconvenience, they can be a menace, and a compact, powerful generator like this is a handy unit to keep at home, to make sure you can keep essentials like lights, or the fridge or freezer, going if blackouts or power cuts threaten to bring everything to a standstill. *Powered by a commercial grade 4-stroke engine with OHV (Overhead Valve) for very smooth, economic running with quieter, better performance, this generator produces 2.3/2.5KW rated power, with a maximum output of 2.5/ 2.8kw and will provide a running time of fifteen hours with the large capacity fuel tank of 18 litres, enough to keep you warm and lit generally until the power returns. Easy to store, with its shape squared off by the robust and sturdy safety bars, which protect the engine and fuel tank from knocks and bangs, the dimensions of the generator, L: 59 x W: x 43 x H:46.5 cm mean it can be tucked away in a garage, shed, cellar or storeroom when not in use. Automatic voltage regulation keeps the flow of power running smoothly and the easy-to-pull recoil start is assisted by a transistorized magneto ignition system. A special low level oil system protects the engine and there is built in over-current protection for safety and efficiency. Noise is kept to a minimum, partly due to OHV technology, at 76dB (A). Important. Don’t forget you will need long cables from the generator, as the generators must not be operated inside a dwelling, a caravan or a tent. To work out the size of generator you need, add up the wattage requirements of each of the items you want to power.nn* NB: Older fridges and freezers take more energy and don’t forget fridges and freezers usually need more power to start up than they do running.
