GROUNDING THE GENERATOR (See Figure 1)
To avoid the risk of shock or electrocution, the
generator must be properly grounded. The nut
and ground terminal on the frame must always be
used to connect the generator to a suitable ground
source. The ground path should be made with #8
size wire. Connect the terminal of the ground wire
between the lock washer and the nut, and tighten
the nut fully. Connect the other end of the wire
securely to a suitable ground source.
If a steel or iron rod is used, it should be at least
1.59cm diameter, and if a nonferrous rod is used,
it should be at least 1.27cm diameter and be listed
as material for grounding. Drive the rod or pipe to a
depth of 2.4m. If a rock bottom is encountered less
than 1.2m. down, bury the rod or pipe in a trench.
All electrical tools and appliances operated from this
generator must be properly grounded by use of a
third wire or be "Double Insulated."
