Generators with ful remote start capability

Les NagyLes Nagy Solar Expert Posts: 121 ✭✭
I am looking for a generator that has full remote start capability. The problem here n Chile is that they tend to sell cheap generators at high prices and with no up front sales support to find what is needed. The requirements are:

Minimum 2kW continuous rated output
Minimum 6 hr autonomy
Relative clean output
Gasoline, air cooled
220V 50hz
Full remote start without need to pull a choke or similar

What says the herd?

    You'll have to find a Honda EU30is to get 230 / 50hz. You can then install a auto choke kit.

    You don't say what Inverter you have, but the AGS on some will start it or a Atkinson start module may have to be added.

    Or a Yamaha 6300IS (5000-6000watts) 50 hz 240 unit. It already has auto choke, remote start, etc.

    Just don't even think of starting it up on eco with a medium load. For some reason it doesn't like that, at all. :cry:

    I lost mine that way for some very weird reason that I will never know, I guess. Don't ask me please.

    But otherwise, seems to be a solid unit.:-)

    Find the international version of the Honda em4000sx? The "sx" is important... That has the full electronic engine control/computer -- So gives you auto choke.

    This may be similar?

    Make sure you get a clear understanding of what generator is being offered... The "SX" versions are not always easy to find (it appears) and the dealer many not even know/understand the differences until you explain.
