12 Volt DC Gasoline Generator for your Battery Bank
This gasoline generator supplies a 70 amps at 13.8V from the 6.5HP engine, for a total output of 1kW. This is ideal for charging your emergency or offgrid battery bank. Run it 45 minutes for each battery in your bank to bring it up to full charge. No need to run it at maximum RPM; start it and run it at an idle. This will keep the engine sound lower and will make your gasoline run longer.

The engine has a pull starter, but for your convenience we added a 1/2" bolt to the engine shaft. Simply insert a 1/2" nut driver into your electric or cordless drill and spin the nut counterclockwise for hassle-free starting.
The engine ships without engine oil. Add standard 30W oil found at your local auto parts store. For extended engine life, use synthetic 30W or 5W-30 oil and change it every 10 hours of operation. Use the attached dipstick to check oil level before each run.
Experimenter? You can disconnect the alternator and run other loads from the engine pulley and belt. Add a water pump for crop irrigation or other loads.
