From the GE open frame petrol generator series, the Stephill GE2501 is reliability economical thanks to the robust Honda GP160 engine. The Overhead Valve (OHV) engine produces 2.5kVA / 2 KW of power effortlessly and has been designed for non-industrial applications. Its best at home when powering items such as small appliances, lights, and small outdoor power tools. Plus, it can charge low voltage batteries and its compact size and low sound levels makes it a market leader. The lack of frame makes this generator unique but its moving handle is strong enough to make moving very easy.

What Happens If I Do Not Use My Generator for Long Periods?
As with all petrol engines, if you are planning to store your generator for a long period its ‘best practice’ to either drain the fuel tank then run the generator until it stops. This will prevent any unused fuel congealing and clogging the carburettor. Or to stop the fuel from going off use a petrol additive. Remember, stale fuel can stop your generator from starting when you need it.
