Wherever you live, blackouts and power cuts can cause domestic or business chaos and it pays to have some kind of back up system. Well a generator like the Loncin LC5000D-AS could be just the job to keep you going until things return to normal. Loncin’s commitment, to producing reliable and efficient generators with low carbon emissions and good fuel economy, continues with this very powerful model, producing rated power of 4 kilowatts with a maximum output of 4.5. Also perfect for leisure use, perhaps for alternative power for caravanning or mobile homes it is powerful enough to keep a large selection of items going, including lighting of course, juice hungry fridges or freezers, hairdryers or vacuum cleaners and could also be invaluable as a generator to provide power to building tools on construction sites, cement mixers, hammer drills and jigsaws. It could also be useful as well as garden maintenance tools like chain saws, hedgetrimmers or pressure washers when you can’t get to a mains source, perhaps at an allotment or in a large garden. It is powered by a high-quality commercial grade Loncin G340F engine, 337cc, single-cylinder, force air cooled with overhead valve for economical, smooth and quieter running and great performance. Voltage outputs of 110/220/230/240V are included and the generator is fitted with Automatic voltage regulation to keep the current smooth and constant. This generator has a fuel tank with a large capacity of 25 litres it will provide you with 10 continuous hours of power.The generator is rugged and durable and the fuel tank and parts are protected from knocks by sturdy steel bars. The generator can be fired up either by the recoil start or an electric start, and a transistorized magneto ignition system makes sure each start is as reliable and easy as the last. There is an integrated system to protect the engine from damage when oil is running low and in-built over-current protection for more safety and to make sure the engine dikes not become overheated and damaged. Thanks to low vibrations and advanced technology, the noise floor of this powerful generator is a remarkably low 76 dB (A) quieter than a food blender or a dishwasher.Smooth running wheels and handles make transport very easy and the handles fold away to aid storage. This generator comes with a wheel kit with 9.5cm wheels and folding handles for enhanced manoeuvrability NB: Remember, if you are using this generator for back up or leisure use, you will need long cables from the generator, as it cannot be operated inside enclosed buildings, dwellings, caravans or tents. To calculate the size of generator you need, add up the wattage requirements of each of the items you want to power and remember that older fridges and freezers take more energy and fridges and freezers or induction motor type items usually need more power to start up than they do running.
