Thornado’s trade series petrol inverter generator is excellent for worksite, camping, caravanning, food trucks, outdoor activities, and backup power needs. It is fuel-efficient and silent, allowing it to safely power all of your sensitive electrical devices and provide backup power during an outage.

Thornado revolutionary design makes it easier to power on the go than ever before. The Thornado 500cc engine generates 8500 starting and 8000 operating watts. With a maximum fuel tank capacity of 30L, this inverter can operate for up to 17 hours at 25% load or up to 7 hours at 1/2 load continuously. This inverter generator includes two 15A and one 32A IP66 outlets, 12v DC outlet, a USB adaptor, one RCD switch, a digital Voltmeter display, and an oil alert indicator to guarantee that the generator runs safely.

Another important feature of this generator is its silent operation and parallel-in capability. This generator is low-noise at 67dB from 7m. It also enables you to connect this parallel-ready inverter to another Thornado 8500 Watt inverter for 30 amps of power.
