O&R with Unknown Make Generator

Recommended Posts

Just had a quick look at completed listings on ePay.com and found this strange looking O&R generator.

The labelling for the generator output looks a bit homemade, as well as having the switch to select between 115V & 12V (instead of having a separate low voltage connector), the generator housing looks nicely made.

If it is home-made then someone must have spent quite a while machining those housings, the engine (Model K) is the same as used on the Champ generators.

 

Question is did anyone buy it?

It was on there at a fair price and thought about it but just don't have the time for another generator. The listing did not have a pic of the output side when I saw it. There were quite a bit a small companies back then so not so sure it's homemade. But there are also quite a bunch of really skilled people out there too.

There are a couple of generators from smaller companies that haven't turned up yet, the Krestronics Charge-R-Lite and the Nobco Power Beam, but this is neither of those, it could have had a band with the name & ratings like the TT generators. :dunno:

The frame for the Krestronics Charge-R-Lite was in the unknown applications thread, we still haven't seen a complete one.

David,

    Thanks for adding the link to the Unknown applications- these are great! It’s fun to see all the various tools and machines.

The Krestronics and a few of the others from the 'unknown' thread have engines from the earliest batch of O&R's, so it's not surprizing that not much has survived.

Have a closer look, the engine serial number is different, slightly less rust on the steel bits, no air filter and a bent foot. It's a second one, not so 'rare' after all then??? :yankchain:

I was thinking the same thing, that they may have a few of them, same as the seller that had half a dozen NOS foggers.
