1 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
A D O not operate the generator near gasoline or gaseous fuel because of the
potential danger of explosion or fire.
Do not fill the fuel tank with fuel while the engine is running. Do not smoke or
use open flame near the fuel tank. Be careful not to spill fuel during refueling.
If fuel is spilt, wipe it off and let dry before starting the engine.
A Do not place inflammables near the generator.
Be careful not to place fuel, matches, gunpowder, oily cloths, straw, trash, or
any other inflammables near the generator.
A D O not operate the generator inside a room, cave, tunnel, or other insufficiently ventilated area. Always operate it in a well-ventilated area, otherwise
the engine may become overheated, and the poisonous carbon monoxide gas
contained in the exhaust gases will endanger human lives. Keep the generator at least 1 meter (3 feet) away from any structure or building during use.
If the generator must be used indoors, the area must be well-ventilated and
extreme caution must be taken regarding the discharge of exhaust gases.
A Do not enclose the generator nor cover it with a box.
The generator has a built-in forced air cooling system, and may become
overheated if it is enclosed. If generator has been covered to protect it from
the weather during non use, be sure to remove it and keep it well away from
the area during generator use.
A Operate the generator on a level surface.
It is not necessary to prepare a special foundation for the generator. However,
the generator will vibrate on an irregular surface, so choose a level place
without surface irregularities.
If the generator is tilted or moved during operation, fuel may spill and/or the
generator may tip over, causing a hazardous situation.
Proper lubrication cannot be expected if the generator is operated on a steep
incline or slope. In such a case, piston seizure may occur even if the oil is
above the upper level.
A P a y attention to the wiring or extension cords from the generator to the
connected device.
If the wire is under the generator or in contact with a vibrating part, it may
break and possibly cause a fire, generator burnout, or electric shock hazard.
Replace damaged or worn cords immediately.
A Do not operate in rain, in wet or damp conditions, or with wet hands.
The operator may suffer severe electric shock if the generator is wet due to
rain or snow.
-1-
A If wet, wipe and dry it well before starting.
Do not pour water directly over the generator, nor wash it with water.
A Be extremely careful that all necessary electrical grounding procedures are
followed during each and every use. Failure to do so can be fatal.
A D O not contact the generator to a commercial power line. Connection to a
commercial power line may short circuit the generator and ruin it or cause
electric shock hazard.
Use the transfer switch for connecting to domestic circuit.
A No smoking while handling the battery.
The battery emits flammable hydrogen gas, which can explode if exposed to
electric arcing or open flame.
Keep the area well-ventilated and keep open flames/sparks away when
handling the battery.
A E n g i n e becomes extremely hot during and for some time after operation.
Keep combustible materials well away from generator area.
Be very careful not to touch any parts of the hot engine especially the muffler
area or serious burns may result.
/i\Keep children and all bystanders at a safe distance from work areas.
A I t is absolutely essential that you know the safe and proper use of the power
tool or appliance that you intend to use. All opetators must read, understand
and follow the tool/appliance owners manual. Tool and appliance and limitations must be understood. Follow all directions given on labels and warnings.

I Overloadede ?
Please make it sure that the generator is not overload.
NOTE :
Most induction loads such as electric motors require three to five times more
wattage than their ratings during starting.
This starting wattage should not exceed the rated output of the generator for
proper operation of AUTO IDLE.
I Turn AUTO IDLE SWITCH off when the AUTO IDLE does not work normally
under the rated output.
NOTE :
The AUTO IDLE may not operate when the applied load is under 40W. In such
cases turn the AUTO IDLE SWITCH off.
(3) STOPPING THE ENGINE
I Turn off the switch of load.
I Switch off generator’s AC breaker.
I Disconnect tool or appliance.
I Turn the AUTO IDLE SWITCH off.
Push STOP SWITCH to stop.
NOTE :
Allow the engine about 3 minutes to cool down at no-load before stopping.

6. WAlTAGE INFORMATION
Some appliances need a "surge" of energy when starting. This means that the
amount of electrical power needed to start the appliance may exceed the amount
needed to maintain its use. See the chart on page 15 for appliances you may use
with this generator.
Electrical appliances and tools normally come with a label indicating voltage,
cycles/Hz, amperage (amps) and electrical power needed to run the appliance or
tool. Check with your nearest dealer or service center with questions regarding
power surge of certain appliances or power tools.
Electrical loads such as incandescent lamps and hot plates require the same
wattage to start as is needed to maintain use.
Loads such as fluorescent and mercury lamps require 1.2 to 2 times the
indicated wattage during start-up.
Electrical motors require a large starting current. Power requirements depend
on the type of motor and its use. Once enough "surge" is attained to start the
motor, the appliance will require only 50% to 30% of the wattage to continue
running.
Most electrical tools require 1.2 to 3 times their wattage for running under load
during use. For example, a 5,000 watt generator can power a 1800 to 4000
watt electrical tool.
Loads such as submersible pumps and air compressors require a very large
force to start. They need 3 to 5 times the normal running wattage in order to
start. For example, a 5,000 watt generator would only be able to drive a 1,000
to 1,700 watt pump.
NOTE :
The following wattage chart is general guide only. Refer to your specific appliance
for correct wattagle.
To determine the total wattage required to run a particular electrical appliance or
tool, mutiply the voltage figure of the appliance/tool by the amperage (amps)
figure of same. The voltage and amperage (amps) information can be found on a
name plate which is normally attached to electrical appliances and tools.

VOLTAGE DROP IN ELECTRIC EXTENSION CORDS
When a long electric extension cord is used to connect an appliance or tool to the
generator, a certain amount of voltage drop or loss occurs in the extension cord
which recuces the effective voltage available for the appliance or tool. The use of
improper size or gauge of extension cords may cause unsafe or inefficient
operation of your tool or appliance. it may also damage the tool or appliance.
Be sure that any extension cord that you use is rated to allow sufficient current
flow to the motor or appliance. Select the required wire gauge size according to
the chart below.
Chart lists the minimum wire gauge size for the proper extension cord.
EXTENSION CORD CHART
Use the right extension cord. An extension cord should have a suitable wire size
for the overrall cord length and tool amperage rating. This is to prevent a serious
voltage drop, power loss and possible motor damage. Generally, heavier gauge
wire is required as coad lenght increases. Use the recommendations in this table.

(for new engine, change oil after 20 hours.)
(a) Drain oil by removing the drain plug and
the oil filler cap while the engine is warm.
(b) Reinstall the drain plug and fill the engine with oil until it reaches the upper
level on the oil filler cap.
Use fresh and high quality lubricating oil
to the specified level as directed on
page 5. If contaminated or deteriorated
oil is used or the quantity of the engine oil is not sufficient, the engine damage
will result and its life will be greatly shortened.
2. SERVICING THE AIR CLEANER
t
Maintaining an air cleaner in proper condition is very important. Dirt induced through
improperly installed, improperly serviced or
inadequate elements damages and wears
out engines. Keep the element clean according to the chart on page 21.
PROCEDURE:
(a) Unhook the cover and remove the
cleaner element.
(b) Inner element: Wash the element with
kemsene, then soak it in mixed oil
(Kerosene (3 parts) : Engine oil (1 part)).
Drain the mixed oil.
(c) Outer element: Wash the element with
kerosene, then dip it into the mixed oil
(Kerosene (3 parts): Engine oil (1 part)).
Squeeze out the mixed oil. (Do not
