The generator is a 2-pole, single phase unit with the capacity to generate up to up to 240 volts.
Yanmar engineers have designed the eG55 to be exceptionally user friendly.

On top of the eG55 cabinet is a fuel level indicator and a multi directional exhaust discharge pipe which can be rotated to the direction that best suits the application.

The units Dry weight is 171 kgs, so with the correct materials handling equipment, it can easily be shifted to a variety of locations and comes fitted with a single point lifting ring to assist with easy handling.
“The new Yanmar eG55 is particularly suited to domestic applications where power supply needs to be supplemented, either as a diesel backup for standalone Solar Power Systems or when mains outages occur”, said Noel Heritage Business Manager of Power Equipment, the Australian agent for Yanmar.
“The strength of this unit is the all round capability together with excellent sound attenuation. And of course, the high power output with low fuel consumption rounds out an impressive list of features.”
The L Series engine powering this safe and durable eG55 gen set is highly regarded for its best-in-class performance, light weight and low fuel consumption. It is the perfect match for this generator.
