Carbon monoxide. Using a generator indoors WILL
KILL YOU IN MINUTES.
Generator exhaust contains high levels of carbon monoxide
(CO), a poisonous gas you cannot see or smell. If you can
smell the generator exhaust, you are breathing CO. But even
if you cannot smell the exhaust, you could be breathing CO.
Never use a generator inside homes, garages,
crawlspaces, or other partly enclosed areas. Deadly
levels of carbon monoxide can build up in these areas.
Using a fan or opening windows and doors does NOT
supply enough fresh air.
ONLY use a generator outdoors and far away from open
windows, doors, and vents. These openings can pull in
Even when you use a generator correctly, CO may leak into
the home. ALWAYS use a battery-powered or battery-backup
CO alarm in the home.
If you start to feel sick, dizzy, or weak after the generator has
been running, move to fresh air RIGHT AWAY. See a doctor.
You could have carbon monoxide poisoning.
Failure to properly ground generator can result in
electrocution, especially if the generator is equipped
with a wheel kit. Generators have to be properly
grounded to an approved earth ground. Call an
electrician for local grounding requirements.

BEfORE OpERATING THE UNIT
Position the generator on a flat surface before checking fluid
levels or adding fluid.
Attempting to start the engine before it has been
properly filled with oil will result in equipment failure.
See Figure 4.
Engine oil has a major influence on engine performance and
service life. For general, all-temperature use, SAE 10W-40 is
recommended. Always use a 4-stroke motor oil that meets or
exceeds the requirements for API service classification SJ.
NOTE: Non-detergent or 2-stroke engine oils will damage
the engine and should not be used.
Unscrew the oil cap/dipstick and remove.
Wipe dipstick clean and re-seat in hole; do not re-thread.
Remove dipstick again and check oil level. Oil level
should fall within the level indicator area on the dipstick.
If level is low, add engine oil until the fluid level rises
to the upper portion of the level indicator area on the
Replace and secure the oil cap/dipstick.

Check the fuel level gauge. If fuel is needed, continue
with the next step.
Remove the fuel cap.
Fill the fuel tank to 25mm below the top of the fuel neck.
Replace and secure the fuel cap.
NOTE: Always use unleaded gasoline with a pump octane
rating of 86 or higher. Never use old, stale, or contaminated
unleaded fuel, and do not use an oil/gas mixture. Do not allow
dirt or water into the fuel tank.
