Title: Generator identification
Post by: praxidice on May 23, 2021, 01:26:50 AM
I'd appreciate any comments regarding identification of this generator. It belongs behind a Lister-Petter LPW3A which I presume means around 30 horsepower at 1500 rpm.  There are no identification plates on the generator but I believe it might be Australian. I understand it spent its previous life powering a big coldroom on a property near Mount Isa in north west Queensland. It has a common or garden variety Australian double 15 amp 240v GPO that looks to be original, and a 35 amp three phase 415v outlet that appears to be a Jerry-rigged fitment since only three wires are connected. Presumably whoever fitted the three phase outlet didn't bother to find a proper 32 amp single phase outlet.

I've uploaded tiny and hence not particularly clear photos to LEF gallery

Also uploaded far better photos to
