Like their premium quality three phase YH series counterparts, the new single phase four pole YH series generator sets feature quality, fuel-efficient Yanmar engines manufactured in Japan.

The generators are ideal as standby for businesses or households using solar power, plus other uses such as back-up in the case of power cuts or as electricity for those who are unable to access the grid.

All models available are, as standard, fully enclosed and sound proofed with industry leading sound attenuation. For example, the new YH220DSLS-5F soundproof model emits only 59db(A) at seven metres.

The new single phase four pole (1500rpm) models range from 6-26kVA prime power, with larger high capacity fuel tank bases optional – and all tanks are fully bunded.


Technically advanced, the YH series generators remain easy to operate, with user-friendly design and safety features including a turn-key start, digital control panel, rain cap for outdoor use, key-lock fuel access, engine oil drain pump for easy maintenance, emergency shutdown and more.

At the heart of the Yanmar YH series of water cooled generators is the world leading Yanmar TNV series engine, a robust Japanese-manufactured workhorse that meets all current Australian non on-highway emission standards.

The new YH series single phase four pole (1500rpm) generator sets are available and in stock now, and can be purchased via Power Equipment or its network of authorised dealers.

The units are easy to transport via forklift or, alternatively, can be installed by crane.

Power Equipment Business Manager, Noel Heritage, said Yanmar units were the gold standard in terms of longevity, reliability and ease of use.

“The market has been telling us there’s a need for a quality single phase Yanmar option, and that demand can now be filled,” he said.

The following models are available:

  • YH110DSLS-5F rated at 6.6KVA S/By & 6.1KVA Prime (optional 100-litre fuel tank base)
  • YH170DSLS-5F rated at 10.8KVA S/By & 10.1KVA Prime (optional 100-litre fuel tank base)
  • YH220DSLS-5F rated at 15.3KVA S/By & 14.1KVA Prime (optional 190-litre fuel tank base)
