This is one of the most powerful single-cylinder petrol generators in the UK market.

Extremely Reliable

Built for the most demanding of jobs the HY10000LEK-2 is an extremely reliable site generator, the single cylinder 459cc 4-stroke OHV air cooled engine generates a max power of 8kW.

Built-In Wheel Kit

Weighing only 94kg, the 8kw petrol generator is easy to manoeuvre thanks to its built-in wheel kit, rugged open frame and folding handles.

Low Noise Technology

Using the latest low noise engine technology, the 8kw generator produces only 70 dBA @ 7m.

Digital Display

The onboard digital display meter displays hours run, maximum voltage and frequency. By making it easy to know when a service on the machine is due, you can be confident that you will get many years of use and will not cause harm to the unit, by missing a service.

Push Button Start

The HY10000LEK-2 is an easy electric start generator with push button start function that makes starting the generator simple. There is also a recoil start system to ensure you are never left without power. The generator recharges it’s own battery when in use.

When storing your generator for a long period of time, we recommend you either run the engine dry of fuel (run until the engine cuts out due to no fuel) or use a fuel additive to prevent the petrol from ‘going off’. Modern unleaded petrol, when left for long periods can congeal and clog the carburettor, it also loses it’s combustible properties and can cause problems starting in the future.

*kVA is based on an assumed load factor of 0.8.

*All non inverter or converter generators except HY3400 Hirepro:

Fitted with an AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) controlled alternator to maintain voltage as near to 230v as possible. Non AVR alternators have a large fluctuation in voltage and can damage sensitive electronic equipment. If you require a portable generator to replicate the mains supply, it is recommended that a pure sine wave inverter generator is used.
