Hyundai 6kW Diesel Standby Generator

The DHY8000SELR standby generator is the long running version of the DHY8000SE, with a large 30L diesel tank, boosting the maximum running time of this standby diesel generator to 30 hours of backup power.

Long Running Standby Generator

Powered by a 4-stroke, air-cooled D452 Hyundai diesel engine, the DHY8000SELRbackup generatorhas a maximum output of 6kW. It features the same AVR alternator which produces clean energy. Although it won’t be able to run everything, it allows more essential home items to continue running in the event of a power cut when the National Grid fails.

The DHY8000SELR is ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch) compatible. ATS is an optional extra that can be connected to an ATS system for maximum convenience. When the ATS module detects a loss of power from the mains supply it simply powers your generator up automatically, then shuts it off when it detects power returning from the mains. This is also an electric start diesel generator, with a simple turn of the key being all that’s required to start or stop the machine when controlled manually.

Silenced Generator for minimum disruption

Housed in silenced casing, the DHY8000SELR is a very quiet machine and won’t disturb you, your family or your employees when powering your building. With a sound rating of 70dB @ 7 metres you will seldom hear the generator while it’s at work.

Economical Standby Power

TheDHY8000SELR diesel generatoris economical to run, using roughly 1L of diesel every hour. Since the DHY8000SELR can run on red diesel, which is significantly cheaper than the diesel you put into your car making extra savings over long run times, the perfect back-up solution.


For peace of mind, this generator comes with aHyundai 1 year / 1,000 hour warranty(whichever comes first), as well as full UK parts backup to maintain your genset for years to come.

Designed for standby use. For Continuous power supply, we recommend a 1500rpm diesel generator.

For the recommended usage of this generator,please see here.

Please note, this is a 3000rpm generator, ideal for backup power in the event of a power cut, or for powering a workshop for example. For more frequent use, or if running for extended periods of time every day (prime power) you should purchase a 1500rpm water-cooled, slow running generator that has a much longer lifespan. For more details on the recommended usage of 3000rpm or 1500rpm generators,please see here.

Fitted with an AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) controlled alternator to maintain voltage as near to 230v as possible. Non AVR alternators have a large fluctuation in voltage and can damage sensitive electronic equipment. If you require a portable generator to replicate the mains supply, it is recommended that a pure sine wave inverter generator is used.
