The longest generator warranty in Australia

Here at SSA we are pedantic about quality and reliability, when it comes to off grid power there is nothing more frustrating than having issues caused by lower quality equipment. Which is why our smurf blue Commodore generators are built to specification not to price, high quality equipment works out substantially cheaper in the long run.

All of our Smurf blue diesel models are standard with an advanced Deep Sea controller pre configured for 2 wire auto start, making them perfect for off grid backup and emergency power. Featuring electric start with a heavy duty starter motor, reliable 1500 RPM 4 cylinder engine, and large output terminals for hard-wiring to your switchboard. Ours employ a warm up and cool down cycle managed by the deep sea controller to further look after the engine. Also supplied with a 10W solar panel trickle charger to keep your generator battery topped up & ready to rock n roll whenever you need it.

This unit will deliver a maximum AC output of 17.6kVA/17.6KW (@ PF1) or 16kVA/16KW continuously. A water cooled engine means that it can run for extended periods of time whereas air cooled generators can be run for approximately 4 hours at one time.

An Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) is available which allows this generator to be used for automatic mains power failure protection. If the mains power fails, the ATS will disconnect from the mains then start the generator to safely switch over & supply power to your property. Once the mains power is restored, the ATS will shut down the generator and re-connect your property to the mains power grid. ATS is available for grid switch over. Please contact us for more information.
