The Air Index level defines how clean an engine’s exhaust is over a period of
time. A bar graph scaled from “0” (most clean) to “10” (least clean) is used to
show an engine’s Air Index level. A lower Air Index level represents cleaner
exhaust from an engine.
The period of time (in hours) that the Air Index level is measured is known as
the durability period. Depending on the size of the engine, a selection of time
periods can be used to measure the Air Index level (see below).
Descriptive Term
Applicable to Emissions Durability Period

1. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Please make sure you review each precaution carefully.
Pay special attention to statement preceded by the following words.
WARNING “WARNING” indicates a strong possibility of severe personal injury or loss
of life if instructions are not followed.
CAUTION
“CAUTION” indicates a possibility of personal injury or
equipment damage if instructions are not followed.
WARNING
Do not operate the generator near gasoline or gaseous fuel because of the potential
US danger of explosion or fire.
GB 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
GB it off and let dry before starting the engine.
GB
GB
WARNING
Do not place in flammables near the generator.
GB Be careful not to place fuel, matches, gunpowder, oily cloths, straw, trash, or any other in flammables near
GB
GB
the generator.
WARNING
GB Do not operate the generator inside a room, cave, tunnel, or other
insufficiently ventilated area. Always operate it in a well-ventilated area,
GB otherwise the engine may become overheated, and the poisonous carbon
GB 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
1m
GB building during use.
GB 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.
1m
GB
GB
GB
WARNING
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.
WARNING
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.
WARNING
Pay 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.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS WHILE CHARGING
■
An explosive hydrogen gas is discharged
through vent holes in the battery during the
charging process. Do not allow spark or open
flame around the generator or battery during the
charging process.
■
Electrolyte fluid can burn eyes and clothing.
Be extremely careful to avoid contact. If injured,
wash the affected area immediately with large
quantities of water and consult a doctor for
treatment.
■
When charging a large capacity battery or
totally discharged battery, excessive current
may force the DC circuit breaker to turn off.
In such cases, use a battery charger to charge
a large battery with AC output.
■
Battery defects may cause the DC circuit
breaker to turn off.
Check the battery before replacing the DC
circuit breaker.
3. STOPPING THE GENERATOR
(a) Turn off the power switch of the electric equipment
and unplug the cord from receptacle of the generator.
(c) If the engine does not start by usual starting
procedures, check the oil level.
CAUTION
Do not remove OIL SENSOR PROBE when
refilling with oil.
Remove oil filler cap on the opposite side
of carburetor.
5. WATTAGE 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.
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.
GB
Electrical loads such as incandescent lamps
and hot plates require the same wattage to
start as is needed to maintain use.
GB
■
(b) Allow the engine about 3 minutes to cool down
at no load before stopping.
(c) Turn the engine switch to the position "
" (STOP).
(See Fig. 4-r)
q"
" (RUN)
w"
" (STOP)
(d) [Electric starter model]
Turn the key switch to the "
STOP
■
■
"(STOP) position.
Loads for mercury lamps require 2 to 3 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 5000 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 5000 watt generator would
only be able to drive a 1000 to 1700 watt pump.

(b) When engine has stopped automatically, switch off
generator's no-fuse breaker, and check the oil level.
Refill engine oil to the upper level as instructed
on page 5 and restart the engine.
Loads such as fluorescent lamps require 1.2
to 2 times the indicated wattage during start-up.
■
