Honda Generator Assistance

Honda generators are ideal for top power tools. That’s because Honda generators come with Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR), which gives you pure electricity with no spiking. And therefore less chance of damaging an expensive power tool.

Plus, Honda AVR CX series generators offer you:

  • Large fuel tanks for longer running times (9.2 hours for the EP6500CX)
  • Large air cleaners and mifflers for lower noise levels (for EP6500, it’s just 72dB at 7 metres).
  • Volt Meters for accurate usage.
  • Battery chargers (D.C. output)

Throughtout the world, Honda stands for the ultimate in quality and reliability. That’s because every Honda engine is 100% Honda, manufactured in a Honda factory, to Honda quality standards. In addition, all Honda parts carry a full factory guarantee.

Honda has a perfect solution to provide power to the most sophisticated power tools or any sensitive equipment.

Important Notes:

  • Always allow for altitude power loss when selecting a generator. (The selections shown here have included this loss of 1800m above sea level)
  • Certain Power Tools such as Industrial grinders can exceed the required power input.
  • Always use correct size cables i.e. 2,5mm for up to 2000W, and 3,5mm for tools up to 4400W
  • Larger cables are required for tools exceeding 20m in length, as a voltage drop is likely to occur and result in tool burn out!
  • The above selections are based on one tool per generator. The generator selection will increase as the number of tools are added to the generator source.
  • Most power tools are equipped with electronic components, and are sensitive to electrical surges. Honda AVR generators ensure smooth electrical output at 220V. All Honda EP-Generators are set at 50Hz.
