Powerful Petrol Generator

The HY3800L-2 is a powerful yet easily portable petrol open-frame generator from Hyundai, powered by a highly economical 210cc / 7hp single-cylinder 4-stroke engine that is able to produce 3.2kW / 4kVA.

Built for demanding jobs, the HY3800L-2 is an extremely reliable workhorse of a generator, with its single-cylinder 4-stroke OHV air-cooled engine generating a maximum power of 3.2kW.

Quiet Site Generator

Using the latest low-noise engine technology, and an improved muffler design, the HY3800L-2 produces only 65 dBA @ 7m to minimize any disruptions or disturbances to your family, employees or neighbours.

Equipped with a Hyundai AVR alternator to keep the voltage output smooth (within /- 3% of 230V), the HY3800L-2 is suitable for powering sensitive electronic equipment, such as televisions, PCs and laptops, in your home or business. This alternator is also heavy-duty enough to easily handle the harsh demands of power tools and building site equipment.

This powerful genset is fitted with 1x 230v 13A and 1x 115v 16A sockets to ensure you always have plenty of space to power whatever is needed.

Generator Features

The onboard digital display meter displays hours run, the output voltage and frequency, making it easy to know when a service on the generator is due, ensuring generator longevity.

This petrol generator’s sockets are placed on the end facing the control panel to minimize any potential damage when wheeling this portable generator through narrow gaps and doorways.

The easy-pull recoil start system makes this generator easy to get going each and every time.

Low Maintenance and Easy To Use

With low service and maintenance requirements, the HY3800L-2 is incredibly easy to use and has full Hyundai UK parts back up. It also features a low oil alert which will shut down the engine automatically if the oil level drops to minimize any damage to the engine, as well as overload protection which will cut off power if it exceeds the maximum energy capacity.

This generator is ideal for site use, commercial use, trade use or even for home or garage use. Note that petrol generators must never be used inside due to risk of carbon monoxide poisonings.

Petrol-Powered Generator

As this generator is petrol-powered, please note that when storing your generator for a long period of time, we recommend you either run the engine dry of fuel, drain any leftover fuel or use a fuel additive to prevent the petrol from ‘going off’ whilst sat in the generator.

Modern unleaded petrol, when left for long periods can congeal and clog the carburetor which can cause problems starting your generator in the future.

3 Year Warranty

This 4kVA diesel generator comes with a3 year Hyundai domestic warranty* / 1 year commercial warranty*(terms apply) with full UK parts and service backup for added peace of mind.

Generator kVA Ratings

All of our generators have a kVA rating that is higher than the kW. This is because we have assumed the appliances you are going to power have a load factor/power factor of 0.8 – therefore the ‘assumed’ kVA rating of the load would be higher. This is industry standard and it is usually best to scope the right unit based on the kW.
