Expectations Exceeded - ProMax Generator Range

Getting the job done with the required grunt has just become a whole lot easier with the launch of Briggs & Stratton's new range of generators. The ProMax generators are designed with power, performance and value top of mind.

Each model of ProMax generator features a Briggs & Stratton premium grade Vanguard engine ranging from 6.5 to 16.0 gross horsepower. "Most importantly they have been designed to not only meet, but to exceed the Australian Standard," sasys Grant Buck, Briggs & Stratton's Victorian Sales Manager.

The Standard (AS2790-1989 electricity generating sets transportable - up to 25kW) calls for minimum of UP23, but the ProMax range is rated at IP66. "This means we can safely sell them in any state of Australia," Buck explains. "And we expect the IP66 rated outlets/single circuit breaker, combined with the optional RCD (residual currecnt device) single point lifting hook, to be a popular feature."

The new range of ProMax generators came about due to customer demand. They are ideal for tradesman, hire companies and anywhere that professional, high performance site power generation is required. "In addition, the Vanguard engine is serviceable with the assurance of out reliable national dealer network - including labour and parts," adds Buck.

All Briggs & Stratton ProMax models feature:

  • Heavy duty roll-frame suitable for any worksite
  • Automatic voltage regulator and circuit breaker to help maintain safe and steady voltage
  • Low oil shutdown system to protect the engine
  • Durable steel fuel tank with fuel gauge
  • Overhead Valve (OHV) engine providing greater fuel efficiancy, quieter running and longer engine life.
  • Low noise levels - the generators are fitted with an extra large Quiet Genset System (QGS) muffler to reduce noise levels - an important OH&S consideration
  • Three year commercial warranty

Power Requirements
How to determine the power required from your generator?

Initially consult the owner's manual or the equipment data plate to dtermine the power required to operate it. To calculate the watts needed from your generator you must work out the starting watts for all the equipment you may want to run simultaneously. If the power required for your equipment is indicated in amps, multiply by the colts (240v) to give you the watts. For example, 5amps x 240 = 1200 watts

The ProMax generator range includes model numbers:

  • 3500/2700
  • 6000/5000
  • 7500/6000EA*
  • 9000/7000EA*

*EA means electric start generator equipped with an electric key start option for effortless starting.
