CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
CAUTION MUST BE EXERCISED TO PREVENT
OVERLOADING EITHER OF THE GENERATORS
120 VOLT OUTPUT CIRCUITS (A OR B).
INTENDED USES
1. These engine generator sets have been designed
specifically for Vehicle mounting and mobile use. The
generator output is available in the junction box on the top
of the generator shell. Receptacles are not provided in the
“control box” since the unit is intended to be wired into the
vehicles electrical distribution system. The vehicle
electrical distribution system must include a main line
circuit breaker (MLCB) to protect the generator and your
wiring. The vehicle distribution wiring and receptacles
carry the generator output power to the loads (portable
lights appliances and tools). These units are dual wound
generators, with two separate 120 Volt windings. These
windings can be connected for full power 120 volt OR 120/
240 volt output. When connected for 120/240 dual voltage,
the 120 volt loads must be split and balanced to avoid
overloading one of the generator 120 volt windings. See
unit capabilities for further explanation.
Check the appliance or tool nameplates for the current
and voltage to insure compatibility. Remember that
power taken from receptacle C reduces the power
available at both A and B. Any remaining 120 volt loads
should be equally divided between A and B. Failure to
split the load will cause permanent damage to the stator.
Although circuit breakers are provided, damage due to
overloading constitutes abuse and will not be warranted.
2. These units require large quantities of fresh air for
cooling of both the engine and the generator. Fresh air is
drawn from both the engine end and the generator end
and is exhausted at the center of the unit. For safety, long
life and adequate performance, these units should not be
run in small compartments without the access door open
to allow positive fresh air flow.

Starting Electric Motors - Electric motors require much
more current (amps) to start them than to run them.
Some motors, particularly low cost split-phase motors,
are very hard to start and require 5 to 7 times as much
current to start them as to run them. Capacitor motors
are easier to start and usually require 2 to 4 times as
much current to start them as to run them. Repulsion
Induction motors are the easiest to start and usually
require 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 times as much to start them as to
run them.
Most fractional horsepower motors take about the same
amount of current to run them whether they are of
Repulsion-Induction (RI), Capacitor (Cap), or Split-Phase
(SP) type. The chart below shows the approximate
current required to start and run various types and sizes
of 120 volt 60 cycle electric motors under average load
conditions.

Trying to start a larger motor or higher code (ie. J or K) motor
may result in damage to both the generator and the electric
motor especially 120 volt motors.
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
THIS UNIT HAS BEEN SHIPPED WITHOUT OIL. Failure
to maintain the engine oil at the proper level will result in
serious engine damage.
UNPACKING
When you unpack your new ENGINE GENERATOR, be
sure to remove all the information sheets and manuals
from the carton.
1. This power plant was in good order when shipped.
Inspect the power plant promptly after receiving it. If
damage is noted, notify the transportation company
immediately; request proper procedures for filing a
“concealed damage” claim. Title to the equipment
and responsibility for filing claim rests with you when
a generator is sent F.O.B. shipping point. Only you
can legally file a claim.

2. Before proceeding with the preparation of your new
engine generator set for operation, take a couple of
minutes to insure that the unit you have received is
the correct model and review the specification pages
in this manual to insure that this unit fits your job
requirements.
The figures given above are for an average load such as
a blower or fan. If the electric motor is connected to a
hard starting load such as an air compressor, it will
require more starting current. If it is connected to a light
load, or no load such as a power saw, it will require less
starting current. The exact requirement will also vary with
the brand or design of the motor.
Self-excited generators respond to severe overloading
differently than the power line. When overloaded, the
engine is not able to supply enough power to bring the
electric motor up to operating speed. The generator
responds with high initial starting current, but the engine
speed drops sharply. The overload may stall the engine.
If allowed to operate at very low speeds, the electric
motor starting winding will burn out in a short time. The
generator winding might also be damaged.
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
RUNNING THE GENERATOR SET UNDER THESE
CONDITIONS MAY RESULT IN DAMAGING THE
GENERATOR STATOR AS WELL AS THE MOTOR
WINDING.
Because the heavy surge of current required for starting
motors is required for only an instant, the generator will
not be damaged if it can bring the motor up to speed in a
few seconds of time. If difficulty is experienced in starting
motors, turn all other electrical loads off and if possible
reduce the load on the electric motor.
3. After removing the engine generator from the carton
locate and remove the shipping strap attached to the
generator shock mount. See attached tag for removal
instructions.
UNIT PREPARATION
Before your engine generator was shipped from our
factory it was fully checked for performance. The generator
was load tested to its full capacity, and the voltage and
frequency were carefully checked and adjusted.
1. Lubrication - Before starting the engine, fill the
crankcase to the proper level with a good quality oil. The
recommended grade of oil and quantity of oil required is
listed in the engine operators manual. The necessity of
using the correct oil, and keeping the crankcase full
cannot be overemphasized. Engine failures resulting from
inadequate or improper lubricant are considered abuse
and are not covered by the generator or the engine
manufacturers warranty.

A twelve volt battery, group U1 rated at 300 CCA or larger
is recommended for this electric start engine generator
set. Follow the battery manufacturers recommendations
for servicing and charging prior to use. Connect the
battery to the electric start system using the cables
provided.
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
These electric start engines are NEGATIVE GROUND.
Use extreme caution when connecting the battery.
Connect the NEGATIVE battery terminal to GROUND.
For your safety always connect the positive battery cable to
the “bat+” terminal first. Then connect the negative battery
cable to the “bat-” terminal. Make sure all connections are
clean and tight. Reverse the sequence when
disconnecting, disconnect the negative cable first.
Proper Oil Level
a. Make sure the engine is level
b. Remove the oilcap/dipstick (ref 1) from either side of
the engine and wipe off with a clean cloth.
c. Fully re-insert oil cap/deipstick, but do not screw in.
d. Remove oil cap/dipstick. The oil level should be
between the upper mark (ref 2) and the lower mark (ref
3) on the oil cap/dipstick.
e. Fill engine with proper grade and weight of oil.
f. Fully reinsert oil cap/dipstick and hand tighten. Ovetightening the oil cap/dipstick will damage it.
WARNING: PERSONAL INJURY
Lead acid batteries produce explosive hydrogen gas when
charging. Keep sparks, flames, and burning cigarettes
away from the battery. Ventilate the area when charging or
using the battery in an enclosed space. Lead acid
batteries contain sulfuric acid, which causes severe burns.
If acid contacts eyes, skin or clothing, flush well with water.
For contact with eyes, get immediate medical attention.
Oil should be change after the first 50 hours of operation
and every 100 hours there after. It should be checked
daily.
OPERATION/INSTALLATION
This engine generator set consists of a Yanmar 9.9 hp
diesel engine and a 6 kw generator end. The Yanmar
engine is a electric key start engine with low oil level
protection
2. Diesel Fuel and Fuel Line Connections - Always use a
good grade of # 2 diesel fuel. For cold weather, blended #
1 fuel may be used - See engine operators manual for
recommendations. Never use gasoline or gasohol.
Always insure that the fuel is clean and free of all
impurities.
INITIAL START UP
Use the following checklist to verify the correct preparation
of the engine generator before starting.
WARNING: FIRE
Diesel fuel is flammable and can be ignited to cause or
enlarge fires when proper precautions are not taken.
On All Units Check:
Never use fuel that has been stored for an extended
period of time. Fuel will lose its volatile properties and you
will be left with a ‘gum’ / varnish residue. This varnish like
substance will clog the filters, fuel lines and injectors. Old,
contaminated, stale fuel will not burn properly. The use of
a fuel additive, such as STA-BIL, or an equivalent will
minimize the formation of fuel gum deposits. If a unit has
been out of operation for an extended period of time, it is
best to drain old fuel from the engine and replace with
fresh fuel before attempting to start.
1. Engine oil, fill as required with correct grade and
quantity.
2. Fuel level, fill as required with clean fresh fuel.
3. Visually check unit for loose parts.
STARTING and STOPPING
The throttle control on these generators is preset and
locked to operate at 3600 RPM (nominal) with no load
speed set at 3690 RPM. Only a trained service technician
should be allowed to adjust this speed setting. See
“Operating Speed” section for additional information.
3. Battery connection - All electric start engine generator
sets are shipped with a battery kit for customer
installation. This kit consists of a battery rack, battery tie
down, battery cables, and instruction sheet for installation.
After installing the battery rack, file the instruction sheet in
the back of this manual for future reference.
2020-000
1. Manual starting - Provision for manual starting is not
provided - If the battery is dead or defective, recharge or
replace it. Refer to the engine manual for additional
starting, operating, and stopping instructions.
Page 4
60706--215
2. Electric Starting - Always keep the battery charged, but
especially during cold weather operation.
a. Turn on the fuel supply and prime the fuel line up to
the injector pump.
b. Operate the key switch. Position # will turn on the
fuel solenoid and position #II will engage the starter.
The switch is spring loaded to the #I position, so when
you release the key the switch returns to this position.
c. The engine will start and come up to operating
speed.
d. To shut the unit off rotate the key switch to the O
position and the unit is stopped by shutting off the fuel
solenoid
STARTING HINTS
All engines have a tendency to slow down when a load is
applied. When the electrical load is connected to the
generator, the engine is more heavily loaded, and as a
result the speed drops slightly. This slight decrease in
speed, together with the voltage drop within the generator
itself, results in a slightly lower voltage when the generator
is loaded to its full capacity than when running no load.
The slight variation in speed also affects the frequency of
the output current. This frequency variation has no
appreciable effect in the operation of motors, lights and
most appliances. However, electronic equipment and
clocks will be affected if correct RPM is not maintained.
See Load vs. Output chart.
Although individual units and models may vary slightly,
the normal voltage and frequency of the enginegenerators described in this book are approximately as
follows, under varying loads:

CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
Never use ether or any other starting aides. Serious
engine damage or personal injury may result from
ignoring this simple warning.
2. Hot weather
a. Be sure to use the proper oil for
the temperature expected.
b. Use only summer blended fuel.
Using old fuel leftover from winter
may cause damage to the engine
or clogging of the fuel filters and
injection pump. See Engine Manufacturers instructions.
OPERATING SPEED
The engine-generator must be run at the correct speed in
order to produce the proper electrical voltage and
frequency.
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
The output voltage should be checked to insure the
generator is working properly prior to connecting a load to
the generator. Failure to do so could result in damage to
equipment plugged into the unit and possible injury to the
individual.
60706-215
**************************************************************
*Portion of plant’s rated output current.
The speed of the engine was carefully adjusted at the
factory so that the generator produces the proper voltage
and frequency. For normal usage, the speed setting
should not be changed. If the generator is being run
continuously on a very light load, it is often advisable to
lower the operating speed slightly. Whenever making any
speed adjustments check the unit with a voltmeter or
tachometer and be sure the speed is correct.
The engine will govern itself at full speed. Intentionally
overriding the governor and operating the generator at low
voltage may damage both the generator and any load
connected to it. Running the engine at excessively high
speeds results in high voltage, which may significantly
shorten the life of light bulbs and appliances being used,
as well as possibly damaging the engine.
Output voltage should be checked periodically to ensure
continued proper operation of the generating plant and
appliances. If the generator is not equipped with a
voltmeter, it can be checked with a portable meter.
Frequency can be checked by using an electric clock with
a sweep second hand. Timed against a wrist watch or a
stop watch the clock should be correct within +/- 2
seconds.
Page 5
2020-000
recheck the rating of the generator set. Be sure it can
handle the intended load and is compatible with the
voltage, phase, and current ratings.
CONNECTING THE LOADS
Applying The Load
Allow the engine to warm up for two or three minutes
before applying any load. This will allow the engine to
reach normal operating temperature and oil to circulate
throughout the engine. A short warm-up time will permit
the engine to work more efficiently when the load is
applied and will reduce the wear in the engine, extending
its life.
‘Hard Wiring’ this unit directly into a temporary
construction site electrical system is NOT A SIMPLE DOIT-YOURSELF JOB. For your safety all wiring must be
done by a qualified electrician and conform to the National
Electric Code and comply with all state and local codes
and regulations. Check with local authorities before
proceeding.
Receptacles have been provided to allow loads to be
connected to the generator. The loads should be added
one at a time. If a large motor is being started or multiple
motors are being started, they should be started
individually and the largest should be started first.
WARNING: PERSONAL DANGER
A fully isolated, double pole double throw manual
transfer switch must be installed any time a generator is
being connected to an existing distribution system.
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT OVERLOAD
1. These engine generator sets are designed for
portable heavy duty commercial use. Receptacles are
provided on the control panel to permit 120 and 240
volt portable appliances and tools to be plugged
directly into them. Please note that the 3 wire 240 volt
receptacle(s) on these units are designed to power
only 240 volt tools. There is 2 hots and a ground wire,
but no neutral connection, in the 3 wire 240 volt
receptacle. A 4 wire receptacle (2 hot, 1 ground, and
1 neutral) has been provided on the control panel for
use in temporay power applications requiring 120/
240 volt power. Consult a licensed electrician for
wiring the TemPower plug and connecting it as
temporary service.
Keep the generator load within the generator and
receptacle nameplate rating. Overloading may cause
damage to the generator and/or the loads .
Most electric tools and appliances will have the voltage
and amperage requirements on their individual
nameplates. When in doubt consult the manufacturer or a
local electrician. The nameplate amperage rating for
electric motors can be misleading. See “Starting Electric
Motors” in Unit Capabilities (page 3).
These engine generator sets are inherently self regulating
based on engine speed. The engine governor will
automatically adjust itself to the load. No harm to the
generator will result if it is operated with no load
connected.
To connect these units directly to an un-powered,
isolated construction site TemPower panel, have your
electrician connect to the control panel using a 120/
240 volt, four wire twist-lock plug (L14-30P). The use
of locking receptacles and locking plugs provides the
convenience of quick disconnect, for moving, while
allowing non electrical workers to safely reconnect the
power. In addition they prevent the plug from being
accidentally removed by bumping or vibration.
Proper utilization of the receptacles located on the control
panel is necessary to prevent damage to either the
receptacles or the generator. The generator is a limited
source of electrical power, therefore pay special attention
to the receptacle and generator ratings. The nameplate
rating can be obtained through a single receptacle as long
as the receptacle amperage rating is not exceeded.
Grounding
2. If the generator set is be connected to existing
distribution system a fully isolated manual transfer
switch must be installed. The transfer switch
prevents damage to the generator and other circuit
components if main line power is restored while the
generator is connected. Installing a transfer switch
also permits the use of normal fusing.
All units must be grounded. Drive a 3/4 or 1" copper pipe
or rod into the ground close to the engine-generator set.
The pipe must penetrate moist earth. Connect an
approved ground clamp, to the pipe. Run a no. 10 Awg
wire from clamp to the generator ground lug on the
“receptacle panel”. Do not connect to a water pipe or to a
ground used by a radio system.
The engine-generators covered in this manual were
designed for portable use. DO NOT OPERATE INDOORS.
The unit should be stored in a warm dry location. Move
the unit outdoors to a flat dry location for use.
3. Many homes and construction sites are wired for at
least 60 to 100 Amp entrance service, much greater
than the capacity of these portable generators. When
installing the generator at these sites, a secondary
emergency distribution panel may have to be
installed, such as the Emergency Transfer/Service
(ET/S) system available through your WINCO dealer.
The emergency distribution panel must be installed
by a licensed electrician according to all applicable
codes. The electrician will move the critical circuits to
be powered during the outage to the emergency
panel. Keep in mind only a limited amount of
WIRING
Plug your tools such as drills, saws, blowers, sump pump
and other items to be powered directly into the generator
receptacles. Before plugging in all the tools and cord sets,
2020-000
Page 6
60706--215
amperage is available from the generator set. Some
circuit breakers may still have to be turned off to
prevent an overload on the generator during the initial
start up. See the nameplate on your generator for the
amperage capabilities of your unit.
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
Failure to properly limit and balance the load applied to
the generator will cause the generator to produce low
voltage and may damage the engine generator set. It
may also cause severe damage to the loads connected
to the generator at that time. Improper loading of the
generator set constitutes abuse and will not be covered
by warranty.
ENGINE CARE
If major engine service or repair is required contact an
authorized engine service center. The manufacturer of
these engines has established an excellent worldwide
engine service organization. A listing of service centers is
included with the engine operators literature package.
Engine service is very likely available from a nearby
authorized dealer or distributor. Check the yellow pages of
your local telephone directory under “Engines-Diesel” for
the closest engine repair center or ask the dealer from
whom you purchased the power plant.
1. Change the oil as recommended in the engine
operators manual. It is usually required to change oil after
the first 50 hours of operation and every 100 hours
thereafter under normal operating conditions. If the engine
is not used frequently, change the oil every 12 months,
regardless of the actual number of hours of operation.
LOW OIL LEVEL SHUTDOWN SYSTEM
This low oil warning system will automatically stop the
engine before the oil pressure reaches an operational
danger point. This feature is designed to prevent costly
repairs and downtime.
Use of the oil safety shutdown system on applications that
are subject to shock, bumping or severe angles of
operation (in excess of 15 degrees) should be avoided.
This is especially true if an unexpected shutdown would
cause a safety hazard or serious inconvenience for the
operator.
GENERATOR CARE
Proper care and maintenance of the generator is
necessary to insure a long trouble free life.
1. Exercising The Generator - The generator should be
operated every three to four weeks. It should be operated
for a period of time sufficient to warm the unit up and to dry
out any moisture that has accumulated in the windings. If
left this moisture can cause corrosion in the winding.
Frequent operation of the engine generator set will also
insure that the set is operating properly should it be
needed in an emergency.
2. Generator Maintenance - Any major generator service
including the installation or replacement of parts should
be performed only by a qualified electrical service man.
USE ONLY FACTORY APPROVED REPAIR PARTS.
a. Bearing - The bearing used in these generators is
a heavy duty double sealed ball bearing. They require
no maintenance or lubrication.
a. Remove oil drain plug at base of the engine and
drain the oil with the engine warm.
b. Receptacles - Quality receptacles have been
utilized. If a receptacle should become cracked or
otherwise damaged, replace it. Using damaged or
cracked receptacles can be dangerous both to the
operator and to the equipment.
b. Replace oil drain plug.
c. Remove oil filler plug and refill with new oil. Refer to
the table in the engine manual for the proper grade of
oil based on your operating temperature.
d. Replace filler plug.
2. Checking the Oil Level: The oil level must always be
checked before the engine is started. Take care to remove
any dirt or debris from around the oil fill plug before
removing. Be sure the oil level is maintained. See Page 3
