From the SW welder open frame petrol generator series, the Stephill SW200AC is reliability economical thanks to the robust Honda GX390 engine. The Overhead Valve (OHV) engine produces 200 Amps of welding power – 6.5 kVA / 5.2 KW of power effortlessly and has been designed for welding applications. The SW welder range also have the capability of running as a generator with 230V and 110V outputs.
Power Rating of the Stephill SW200AC

You bet it is – the easy recoil start (pull start) is smooth and silky. On a well-maintained unit it starts first pull every time.
There are 2 x 16A 110V & 2 x 16A 230V BS4343 sockets to connect your electrical equipment up to, along with 3 x DIN 25 welding sockets and voltage selector switch. Also this unit has low oil shutdown, the generator has a reset circuit breaker overload protection and a voltage selector switch.
Using Sensitive Equipment with the Electrical Power from the Stephill SW200AC
The power produced by the Stephill SW200AC enables a smooth voltage output via the brushless waveform alternator. This keeps the 110/230V output within tolerance making it safe to use with electronic equipment like PC’s, laptops TV’s and more besides.
Low Noise Levels
You might think having a portable petrol generator will be very noisy. Well think again; the SW200AC is surprisingly quiet at 72 dBA @ 7 metres.
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.
