Hi Veggie, it has been a long time. Yes Iím still kicking. How are you doing?

Itís a 4hp mini GM90.
Yes they are real. About half the size of a 6hp GM90. Yes it looks exactly like a dual flywheel GM90.
When I bought the 6hp GM90 Mike Montieth had 5 or 6 three hp miniís in his shop. They were so cute I should of bought one. A matter of fact it would be great for a cogen unit.
If they are still made I wonder if they can be brought in as compressors.

hwew,

Topland, Satyajeet, and Lovson all list the 6HP GM90 as their smallest model.
http://www.topland-india.com/products/engine/htm/engine_3.htm
Perhaps the mini 4HP unit is no longer made.
If I could find them, I would consider taking a run at getting a few here.
- 6/1 GM90 Listeroid - Delco 33si Alternator
- Changfa R175 - Lease/Neville Alternator
- Kubota Z482 - 4kw
- JiangDong R165 Air cooled - 2 kw

What is a "cogen" unit?
Is a unit that does two operations.
Such as Generating electricity from a generator head and capturing heat from the engines cooling system and exhaust to heat a home  or make hot water.

Hey Henry! Good to hear from and you glad to see you are still kicking around. I can't help but ask about your avatar, what is that thing?
It sort of looks like a Tiny Tiger, at least that is what I think I remember. 850 or 900 watts or so IIRC, I have one somewhere that I acquired with my Roid, and my 1115 genset.
  Maybe I am remembering wrong?

Hey Ron, you nailed it, yes itís an Ohlsson and Rice model 300 Tiny Tiger. Itís only 300 watts. A friend collects them. You got a rare one and they are becoming collectors. Does it run? Itís good hearing from you also.
