This is a beautiful 3.5kw NEXTGEN with the best little diesel motor going.. The Kabota ea300 6.5 HP. Relatively quiet, includes sound shield too. This generator was hydrolocked at 300 hours due to improper installation. It has been just rebuilt with (Kabata Kit) new pistons, sleeves, belts, impeller and runs LIKE NEW! It has been running for 20 hours since rebuild, starts in 1-2 seconds and smooth as can be. It fits in almost any 41 or smaller Roamer and is only 200 pounds and takes little space... it can run a 16,000 BTU AC unit with ease, plus a burner and refrgerator and TV/stereo all at the same time. It sips fuel... .20/hr at 2/3rd load.... you will love this lil bugger. It is in Homer's Roamer and video or inspection is now available prior to removal... burns no oil... just rebuilt by the best Gen man in the norteast, or one of them. It as the optional $1,000 sound shield too which looks new or darn close too. Basically, it has not even been broken in yet. A new one costs $7,500. Homer will sell it for only $3,850. You can request videos or if you want to come to the Washington DC area... wach it run and pull power for yourself... No smoke, no smell, no rattle... it is a beauty, an almost new beatuyt at 1/3rd the price. Even if you have a gas boat, this NEXTGEN can eaily fit an auxilary 15 gallon diesel tank and run for 75 hours!! Hardly any carbon monixide so sleep safely too... well, they say you can anyway? This Kabota ea300 is considered the best small diesel in the world as it runs at a slower rpm and is horizonatal piston action so she is real smooth. Read more detaisl below. Read about it in forums, everyone will say the same about the NEXTGEN 3.5. If interested, email HOMER. NEW GEN-SET FEATURES ULTRA-COMPACT DESIGN Traditional direct-coupled 1,800 rpm gen-sets are often too large and heavy to fit in many small to medium-sized vessels where space is at a premium. Using a patent-pending design, Next Generation Power Engineering, Inc. offers an ultra-compact, lightweight 3.5KW diesel machine that doesn't resort to the current trend of high speed 3,600 rpm operation. A rigid engine-to generator attaching plate, combined with a state-of-the-art helical style timing drive system, permits a lower rpm operation. This allows the engine to run at a comfortable and quiet mid-range speed of 2,800 rpm, while still providing an AC output of 60 Hz. The 7 hp Kubota single-cylinder diesel engine uses a horizontal design, making the UCM1-3.5 the lowest profile gen-set built to date. Dimensions are 28* long x 15" wide x 15" high at a dry weight of only 160 lbs. Many small gen-sets can't run air conditioners and motors due to their low horsepower and marginally-sized generators. This gen-set uses a heavy duty 5.0KVA generator end, allowing easy starts on up to 16,000 BTU air conditioners or pairs of smaller AC units. The UCM1-3.5 is available in a standard version or in a modified configuration that is Ignition Protection Certified for use in gasoline powered vessels. Diesel gen-sets in gas boats are becoming more popular as generator manufacturers are dropping their gasoline lines due to safety and liability concerns. With a 5-10 gallon auxiliary tank, owners1 of gasoline boats can now enjoy the safety, reliability and fuel economy of diesel at about the same price as current gas gen-sets.
