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).
HPS6000HE - 120 volt and 240 volt receptacles
are provided for connection to various loads. The
diagram below represents this 5500 watt (rated output) generator. A & B represent the 120 volt output
legs of this generator. Up to 2250 watts at 120 volts
(22.9 Amps) can be drawn from each of the receptacles attached to either of the A or B output legs. This
generator is capable of producing 22.9 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 both A and B and vice versa.
Reference A & B = 120 Volt Receptacle
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.
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.

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 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

shipping point. Only you can legally file a claim.
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.
2. Before proceeding with the preparations of your
new generator set for operation, take a couple of
minutes to ensure the unit you have received is the
correct model and review the specification pages in
this manual to insure that this unit meets your job
requirements.
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.
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 below in
this manual. This unit was shipped with most of the
oil removed. The engine normally holds 38 to 39
ounces of oil. Since there is some trapped oil in the
engine, when filling the crankcase the first time use
the dipstick to ensure that you do not over fill the
crankcase. The blow-up shows the full oil level mark
on the dipstick.
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
RUNNING THE GENERATOR SET UNDER
THESE CONDITIONS MAY RESULT IN DAMAGE
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.

NG FUEL INSTALLATION
The information in this instruction is offered to assist
you in providing the proper Natural Gas (NG) 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.
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 4 TO 6
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 ensure 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. They
should also install a lockable fuel shut off valve at the
connection point. An approved flexible fuel line must
be installed between the engine generator set and
the supply line.
WARNING: FIRE DANGER
DANGER: FIRE - PERSONAL INJURY -
Gasoline and its fumes are VERY explosive when
proper precautions are not taken.
The 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.
ENGLISH
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.
3180-00
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. The line size from the
table below applies to the distance from the second
regulator to the demand regulator.
60706-238
FUEL PRESSURE
A positive fuel shut-off device must be installed
in the fuel line close to the engine generator set.
This manual shut-off valve is require by code even if
the 12 volt fuel solenoid kit is installed. This optional
12 volt DC valve is available through your local
Winco dealer and can be used to shut the fuel off
during normal periods of operation without having to
shut off the manual valve.
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
diagram of a typical NG 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 ensure complete compliance with ALL codes.
1. Remove the plastic cover plug from the demand
regulator.
2. Connect the flex fuel line to the demand regulator or the optional fuel solenoid..
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 numbers 2 an 3 in the diagrams above
are system parts supplied by customer.
Size of pipe required for generators operating on
natural gas. All pipe sizing is based on 1/2” WC
pressure drop at 11” WC setting. For pressure less
than 11” WC (6 oz.) consult the gas company for
proper line sizing for your flow rate.

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 ensure
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:
LOAD VS. OUTPUT
Generator
Load

(RPM)

61.5
125V
Half
3600
60.0
120V
Full
3510
58.5
115V
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.
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE
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.
3180-00
12
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.
CONNECTING THE LOADS
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.
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
60706-238
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 enginegenerator 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 L14-30, 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.
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, 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
3180-00
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.
3. Many homes and construction sites are wired
for at least 60 to 100 Amp entrance service, much
greater than the capacity of this portable generator. 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 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.
