what do you have, lathe, machine center - these inverters make multi phase power from single phase input for driving asynchronous 3 phase induction motors. Unless I'm missing something.

Hi guys,

using the suggested search terms on the bay only turns up the other thing, namely inverter drives by same japanese company (probably also made in China lol).

Thanks to Allan's link another case of brand name knock off comes to light.

cheers, Peter

The specs look good – I might be tempted to try one if I hadn’t already purchased a Yamaha 2.4 at about 4 times the price.
Spoke to a caravaner recently who had a couple of Chinese ones which died, before he ended up buying a Honda. He wouldn’t go for the cheapies again.

Hi, I bought a 4.4 kVa gennie from Adventurers Corner (ebay). They are around $600 now incl freight. I paid more last yr. Have used it both with the van running air con etc and during blackouts on our home (rural) and have found it great. Can buy 3-4 for every Honda or Yamaha 2 kVa. The small amount it gets used, I doubt whether I will wear it out. Have already put the money I saved into a good solar panel set up. Only problem I have encountered is not realising to turn off the remote start switch on the unit after use - it has a current draw and was flattening the small 7 aH battery. Now I switch it off and it will start via the remote after sitting for a mth or two. Also have key start. Overall, I am happy with the unit.

thanks to everyone who posted replys. i ended buying a generator on Ebay from biggerboytoyzaustralia.

i chose one that was somewhat more expensive than others, $625, after reading the feedback from people who had purchased from other sellers. this company had the best feedback.

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/250746285956?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2648

but i did not read the fine print well enough, after i had agreed to purchase i was sent an email that i hadn't paid the postage to regional WA, ($70).

this was quite a surprise as the description page promised FREE delivery Australia wide (until u read the small print).

i have now cancelled my purchase with Ebay and am waiting for my money to be credited back to my card.
