Ohlsson & Rice: Tiny Tiger model?

Recommended Posts

Is there anything unique or special about a Tiny Tiger generator that has a blue and silver Techno Elect sticker on it vs the more common band on the generator that has the tiger picture?

No photos yet. I may have a line on one but I’m still trying to get more details about it and some photos sent to me.

Commonly known as "badge engineering", neither of these rebranded Tiny Tiger's have the output specification on the main sticker.

They should probably have this sticker too.

Another version that claims 350 Watts, which is an intermittent maximum use rating (not continuous), see the manual in the sticky thread for more information.

I will see if I can find any more in my saved pictures tomorrow.

I think the sticker on the one I’m referring to looks like the first picture with the silver and blue.

 

thanks!

I was finally able to work a deal on this Tiny Tiger and add it to my collection.  It’s in need of a serious clean up.  It has a couple obvious issues that I think I can address. It’s missing one of the little rubber feet on the base and the handle is slightly bent/twisted. I should be able to flatten that back out.  The gas tank is a nasty mess inside, serious varnish and gunk built up. It still had what looked and smelled to be 50 yr old gas and varnish still in it... Otherwise it looks like it should clean up well.  How well it will run who knows....

Looks a nice example, I've never found a source for feet the same as the originals, which are often perished or missing.

I've seen quite a lot of Tiny Tigers with the handle having a slight bend away from the muffler.

Fortunately there were 3 of the feet on the rear. I took the center one and moved it to the front corner. I’ll find a simple rubber grommet to put back in the rear middle hole that sits right under the main generator.  I wasn’t sure about the handle, just didn’t look right and I debated on flattening out.  I decided to go ahead and do it and I think it looks better that way.

The parts diagrams show the extra foot (or vibro-mount as they call it) fitted on the top side of the base plate, underneath the generator.

You’ve got technical info on everything...  interesting, in the drawing part F-141-1 looks slightly different from F-141. My generator looks to have had all F-141 feet. I’m planning to find some sort of rubber bushing or other rubber grommet to use in the hole where F-141-1 is shown. The F-141 foot that was there didn’t actually make contact with the generator, it was too low profile.  Maybe I can find something that has just a little more height and will actually work to dampen vibration.
