TESTING POLICY
UNIT CAPABILITIES
Before any generator is shipped from the factory, it
is fully checked for performance. The generator is
loaded to its full capacity, and the voltage, current
and frequency are carefully checked.
GENERATOR CONNECTIONS
Rated output of generator is based on engineering
tests of typical units, and is subject to, and limited
by, the temperature, altitude, fuel, and other conditions specified by the manufacturer of the applicable
engines.
INTENDED USES
This engine generator set has been designed primarily for portable heavy duty commercial use. Both
120 volt and 240 volt receptacles are provided in the
control panel to plug in your loads (lights, portable
tools, and small appliances). These units are dual
wound generators, therefore the 120 volt loads must
be equally split with 1/2 of the rated capacity available on each of the two 120 volt circuits.
HPS9000VE: 120 volt and 240 volt receptacles
are provided for connection to various loads. The
diagram below represents this 8,000 watt (rated
output) generator. A & B represent the 120 volt output legs of this generator. Up to 4000 watts at 120
volts (33 Amps) can be drawn from the receptacles
attached to either A or B output legs. This generator
is capable of producing 33 Amps of 240 volt current
at C.Check the appliance or tool nameplates for the
current and voltage to insure compatibility. Remember that power taken from C reduces the power
available at equally both A and B and vice versa.
This portable unit requires large quantities of fresh
air for cooling the engine and generator. For safety,
long life and adequate performance, these units
should never be run in small compartments without
positive fresh air flow.
STARTING ELECTRIC MOTORS
RESTRICTED USES
DO NOT remove from the cradle assembly. Removal of the generator from the cradle assembly
may cause excessive vibration and damage to the
engine-generator set.
DO NOT install and operate this generator in a small
compartment., i.e. generator compartments of vehicles, motor homes or travel trailers. These compartments will not allow enough free flow of fresh
air to reach the engine generator set for cooling and
will cause the unit to overheat, damaging both the
engine and generator. Small compartments will also
develop hot spots where there is very little air flow
and may cause a fire.
PLEASE NOTE There are 3rd party companies
making enclosures for generators that have been
properly engineered. The use of these 3rd party
enclosures is acceptable as long as they have been
certified and meet current code.
DO NOT attempt to operate at 50 cycles. These
units are designed and governed to operate at 60
cycles only.
2210-00
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 starting
current as running current. Capacitor motors are
easier to start and usually require 2 to 4 times as
much starting current as running current. Repulsion
Induction motors are the easiest to start and require
only 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 times as much starting as running
current.
Most fractional horsepower motors take about the
same amount of current to run them whether they
are Repulsion Induction (RI), Capacitor (Cap), or
Split-Phase (SP) type.
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.
60706-237
Self-exciting generators respond to severe overloading differently than utility power. 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 DAMAGE
2
TO THE GENERATOR STATOR AS WELL AS THE
MOTOR WINDING.
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.
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 operator’s manual and under the
service tab in this manual. This unit was shipped
with most of the oil removed. The engine normally
holds 46 to 48 ounces of oil. Since there is some
trapped oil in the engine, when filling the crankcase

The information in this instruction is offered to assist
you in providing the proper vapor fuel supply for your
engine. This information is only provided to advise
you of the engine’s requirements and the decisions
you must make. In no case should this information be
interpreted to conflict with any local, state or national
code. If in doubt, always follow local codes.
Briggs & Stratton recommends the use of their warranty certified oils for best performance. Other highquality detergent oils are acceptable if classified for
service SF, SG, SH SJ or higher. Do not use special
additives.
GASOLINE
When using gasoline, always use fresh, clean,
unleaded fuel. This engine is certified to operate on
unleaded gasoline with a minimum octane rating of
87 or higher. Gasoline containing no more than 10%
ethanol is acceptable.
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
Do not use unapproved gasolines, such as E15 or
E85. Do not mix oil in the gasoline. Use of unapproved fuels will damage the engine components
and void the engine warranty.
DANGER: FIRE - PERSONAL INJURY All fuel lines must be installed by a qualified fuel
supplier.
The fuel source should be as close as possible to
the outdoor operating location. This will reduce the
installation cost of fuel runs. Connect the fuel supply
line to the inlet of the fuel demand regulator on the
unit using a locally approved flexible fuel line (see
table for recommended line size). The pressure
supplied to the demand regulator must be FOUR
TO SIX OUNCES or 7 to 11 INCHES W.C. (water
column). The primary regulator at the fuel supply
must be capable of delivering the proper volume of
fuel at this pressure.
Use of fuels with content of ethanol greater than
shown above may cause starting and/or performance problems. Always insure that the fuel is
clean and free of all impurities.
Have your local fuel supplier install a protected fuel
connection at the outside operating location. He
should also install a lockable fuel shut off valve at the
connection point. Have your fuel supplier permanently install a flexible fuel line to the demand regulator on
the engine generator set.
WARNING: FIRE DANGER
DANGER: FIRE - PERSONAL INJURY -
Gasoline and its fumes are VERY explosive when
proper precautions are not taken.
The LP/NG fuel supply line must always be shut off
when the engine is not running. Failure to do so may
allow fuel to leak at the unit.
Never use gasoline that has been stored for an extended period of time as the fuel will lose its volatile
properties and you will be left with varnish residue.
The varnish like substance will clog the carburetor
and will not burn properly.
The use of fuel additives, 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.
See the engine manual for special instruction for
operating this unit at over 5000 feet
2210-00
INSTALLING THE FUEL LINE
DANGER: PERSONAL INJURY
Units that are intended to be run unattended
MUST have an electric fuel solenoid installed. This
solenoid MUST be wired to AUTOMATICALLY turn off
the fuel whenever the engine stops.
Unit location will determine the size of fuel line that
is required to supply the engine with a constant fuel
pressure. Refer to the tables below for fuel line size,
and recommended tank size. For distances of 100
feet and over, a two regulator fuel system is recommended. This system consisting of a primary 10-15#
regulator at the tank and a 6 ounce secondary regulator installed about 10 feet from the generator.
60706-237
FUEL PRESSURE
You need to run a 3/4 inch line or larger from the secondary regulator to the engine-generator set. When
a two (2) regulator fuel system is used, a fuel line
size of 3/8 inch is generally adequate for distances
up to 300 feet. The line size from the table below
applies to the distance from the second regulator to
the demand regulator. A positive fuel shut-off device must be installed in the fuel line close to the
engine generator set. This may be either a lockable
manual shut-off valve available from your local fuel
installer, or a 12 volt DC fuel solenoid valve. This
optional 12 volt DC valve is available through your
local Winco dealer.
Correct fuel pressure cannot be stressed enough.
The most common cause for inoperative systems is
an inadequate or incorrect fuel pressure. Power and
performance of the engine is in direct relation to the
correctness of the fuel system. Shown below is a
block diagram of a typical L.P. or N.G. installation.
The fuel line used to connect the supply line to the
demand regulator must be a locally approved flexible
fuel line. Products used will vary in different regions
depending on availability and local codes. Consult
with your local fuel supplier to insure complete compliance with ALL codes.
1. Remove the pipe plug from the demand regulator.
2. Connect the flex fuel line to the demand regulator to the optional fuel solenoid..
Reference numbers 1 through 3 in the block diagrams above are system parts supplied by customer.
DANGER: PERSONAL INJURY
Do not use galvanized pipe in the fuel line runs.
The galvanized coating will become eroded and flake
off, causing possible obstruction or damage to the
regulator or fuel valve. The obstruction could cause
an inoperative engine or an explosive fuel leak.
Reference number 4 is the engine generator set.

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. These engines produce enough direct
current to keep a battery charged under normal operating conditions, but were not intended to be used as
a battery charger.
BATTERY INSTALLATION
This engine generator set is shipped with a battery tie
down kit for customer installation. This kit consists of
a battery tie down and hardware for installation of the
customer supplied battery on the unit. If you intend
to use the power plant’s electric start system, you will
need to purchase and install a battery to operate it.
Units equipped with a recoil or rope start will operate
satisfactorily on gasoline without a battery but stating
on LP/NG requires electric start be used.
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.
BATTERY CHARGING
Units equipped with electric start have a small flywheel charger built into the engine flywheel assembly
for recharging the starting battery. This flywheel charger generates a small AC current that passes through
a diode assembly to produce a DC charging current
of about 1 to 3 AMPS. This circuit is not designed to
be used as a battery charging circuit to recharge dead
batteries.
WARNING: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
The battery positive (+) cable is shipped with a
plastic protective cap. When starting manually, this
protective cap must remain in place to avoid possible damage to the engine electrical system and/or
generator end.
OPTIONAL DOLLY KIT
An optional dolly kit is available for this generator.
The dolly kit comes with instructions and parts list.
After installing the dolly kit, file the instructions and
parts list in the back of this manual for future reference.
A 12-volt powersports (motorcycle/atv/snowmobile) battery, BCI group 20 or 24HL rated at 300
CCA or larger is recommended for this electric start
engine generator set. Maximum length: 8 1/8”,
Maximum width: 3 9/16”, Height range: 5 3/4” - 7”.

OIL ALERT SYSTEM
B
This WINCO generator is equipped standard with
low oil shutdown systems. The Briggs and Stratton
engine uses an oil pressure switch system. This low
oil warning system will automatically stop the engine
before the oil level reaches a critical danger point.
This feature is designed to prevent costly repairs and
downtime.
C
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
Allowing the engine to shutdown repeatedly on
low oil level may cause excessive wear which can be
cumulative.
INITIAL START UP
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.
NOTICE: ENGINE START LOCKOUT
This unit will not start if it is low on oil. The lubricating oil level must be at the full mark before the
engine will start and run.

ELECTRIC STARTING (Gasoline only)
If the engine is cold and stiff or if the battery is not
fully charged, starting can be made easier by slowly
hand cranking the engine through the compression
stroke before pushing the starter switch. This permits
the starter to gain momentum before the heavy load
of the compression stroke occurs. This minimizes the
drain on the battery and improves the possibility of
starting under such adverse conditions. Always keep
the battery charged, especially during cold weather
operation.

STOPPING AND STORAGE
1. Move the on/off switch to the “OFF” position.
2. Before extended storage (over 30 days) certain
precautions must be taken to ensure the fuel doesn’t
deteriorate and clog the fuel system.
Note: The use of a fuel additive, such as Briggs &
Stratton Advanced Fuel Treatment & Stabilizer or
an equivalent will minimize the formation of gum
deposits during storage. The additive may be added
to gasoline in the engines fuel tank or to gasoline in
a storage container.
a. Add the fuel stabilizer to the fuel in the tank and run the unit for 2 minutes to circulate the
stabilizer throughout the fuel system.
b. If you choose to remove the remaining fuel from the fuel tank, it must be drained into an approved container.
c. Start the engine and allow it to run until all the fuel in the carburetor and the fuel lines has been used up and the engine stops.
Note: Running the engine to use up the fuel in the
lines and carburetor will still leave a small amount of
fuel in the carburetor. It is best for extended storage
to treat the fuel before draining.

OPERATING SPEED
The engine-generator must be run at the correct
speed in order to produce the proper electrical voltage and frequency.
D
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.
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 vary slightly, the
normal voltage and frequency of the engine-generator described in this manual are approximately as
follows, under varying loads:
Speed
(RPM)
Frequency
(Hz)
Voltage

3690
61.5
125V
Half
3600
60.0
120V
Full
3510
58.5
115V
Lower 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 appliances being
used.
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.
APPLYING THE LOADS
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.
Reference “D” below is the speed adjustment for this
engine.
2210-00
SPEED ADJUSTMENTS SHOULD ONLY BE
MADE BY A QUALIFIED SERVICE TECH.
Whenever making any speed adjustments, check
the unit with a voltmeter and a frequency meter
or tachometer and be sure the voltage and speed
are correct.
CONNECTING THE LOADS

CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
12
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.
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.
60706-237
WIRING
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT OVERLOAD
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 4).
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. 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
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 primarily for portable use. If you are connecting into a building wiring system that is already
grounded using the 14-60 4 wire plug, you do not
have to ground the unit.
WARNING: PERSONAL DANGER
DO NOT OPERATE THIS GENERATOR INDOORS.
The unit should be stored in a warm dry location.
During a power outage, move the unit outdoors to a
flat dry location such as a driveway or sidewalk.
2210-00
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, 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. ‘Hard Wiring’ this unit directly into
a home or a temporary construction site electrical
system is NOT A SIMPLE DO-IT-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.
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.
1. These engine generator sets are designed for
portable use. Receptacles are provided on the
control panel to permit 120 volt portable appliances
and tools to be plugged directly into them. Please
note that the 4-wire 120/240 volt receptacle on these
units are designed to power both 120 or 240 volt
loads. The plug for this receptacle can be wired for
either 120 volt, 240 volt, or a combination of 120 and
240 volt loads depending on how the plug is wired.
A 4-wire receptacle (two hot, one ground, and one
neutral) has been provided on the control panel
for use in temporary power applications requiring
120/240 volt power. Consult a licensed electrician
for wiring the TemPower plug and connecting it as
temporary service. 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, 4-wire twist-lock plug
(L14-30P).
2. If the generator set is be connected to an 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.
