3kW 230v Converter generator, only 30kg

The HY3000CI is a heavy duty converter generator from Hyundai. Powered by the IC210 210cc single cylinder OHV 4-stroke air cooled low maintenance petrol engine.

The HY3000CI converter design is so light and compact compared to conventional generators which are 50% heavier and bulkier. This is a real bonus when lifting the generator in and out of your van or pickup truck. The HY3000Ci weighs 30kg compared to a conventional open frame 3kw generator weighing around 45kg.

Fitted with 1 x 240v Standard UK 3 Pin Plug Socket and 1 x 240v 16A 3 Pin Socket the HY3000CI is built for the most demanding jobs. Producing a max power of 3kW the HY3000CI is ideal for powering power tools, cement mixers,  lighting rigs, garages, mobile workshops, farm equipment and a multitude of other devices to help your site or business run smoothly.

The HY3000CI also benefits from additional safety features such as each individual socket having an overload protection breaker and a low level oil shutoff which will stop the engine and not allow it to be restarted until the oil level has been restored.

When storing your generator for a long period of time, we recommended you either run the engine dry of fuel (run until the engine cuts out due to no fuel), or use a fuel additive to prevent the petrol from ‘going off’. Petrol, when left for long periods can congeal and clog the carburettor and cause issues starting in the future.

With low service and maintenance requirements, the HY3000CI is incredibly user-friendly and simple to use generator with full Hyundai UK parts back up.
