The Kipor/Sinemasters come in two versions.. invertor and non invertor. Check to be sure which one you are getting. The "Yellow" case ones are invertor and Red non invertor..

EXCEPT, the McCulloch versions.. the invertor one is Red as I recall.

Gina,
My yellow case McCulloch FG2000Tc is advertised as a "Digital" generator (whatever that means). I see in the user manual an electrical wiring diagram that has a large box in the middle of the wiring labeled "Inverter unit". The generator has a "Smart throttle" switch that senses load and increases rpms as needed just like Honda's ecothrottle. So what is it? If it's an invertor generator, why doesn't the company advertise it as such? And if it's not an invertor generator, why does it have an "inverter"? Tom Trostel

Gina: The inverter model McCulloch is Yellow.

This is as clear as mud.

You don't invert AC, you invert DC to make it AC therefore the generator must be generating DC then running it through the inverter to make it a sign wave AC. Most TV's and appliances will work fine on a sign wave 60hz. Now a computer is a different animal and may be more susceptible to the sign wave. It takes the 60hz and changes it back to DC to operate the thing.

The idle switch idles the engine when there is NO Load. When it detects a load it throttles up. The manual does not say anything about the engine running at different speeds (RPM) to match the load.

I'm looking for a used Honda, Sinemaster/Kipor generator to help power my Boler (radio, heat, blender...etc). I'd like a 2000w unit but would consider a 1000w if the price is right.

Thanks,

Dan in Seattle
Hello Dan
I bought an 800 watt 2 cycle generator yesterday in Mexico City. Have not had a chance to fire it up yet as I need to get a gas can and mix some fuel for the unit. I bought it for lights only for my 75 Boler down here on the beach.
Will let you know how it works out later on this week.
and Oh Yes..... the price...... 1670 pesos .... works out to about 167 dollars u.s.

Regards,
James

I also meant to say Digital and not "invertor" d'oh!

ONE of these has the exact opposite color scheme as standard. I remember us talking about it BC (Before Crash)

I went ahead and ordered the McCulloch 2000. $499 and $8 in shipping. It's due to arrive any day now. As soon as it arrives, I'll try it out and report back.

I can't wait to use it.

Hello again Dan

My Mexican made generator works like a charm. Certainly well worth the price and it weighs about 20 kilos with a four litre gas tank. It looks like a Honda knock off. The hondas retail here for about 700 u.s.

Hope you are as happy with yours as i am with mine.

Happy Trails
James
