Industrial manufacturer Subaru Power Products now backs up its industrial RGX generators with a five-year limited war- ranty covering both the generator and the engine.
Subaru’s RGX industrial generators combine premium features and heavy-duty construction to offer a reliable power source to a variety of end-users.
Two models are included in the line, the RGX6500 and the RGX7500, which provide a midrange option in Subaru’s extensive industrial generator line-up.
The RGX generators, featuring various components, including powerful overhead cam (OHC) EX Series engines, are designed to meet the needs of both large and small professional contractors, industrial users and rental centres.
The RGX6500 is powered by Subaru’s 12 hp EX35 engine and delivers a maximum output of 6 500 W (5 000 W standard output rating). Featuring a 7.3-gallon-capacity, or almost 28-ℓ-capacity, fuel tank, the unit offers 10.3 hours of continuous operation at the rated load.
Powered by Subaru’s largest EX engine, the 14 hp EX40, the RGX7500 delivers a maximum output of 7 500 W (6 000 W standard output rating).
Standard on all models, an automatic voltage regulator system provides precise, steady voltage-control output, with less fluctuation. Using sophisticated electronics, the system continuously monitors voltage output to ensure steady power flow, which is necessary for powering more sensitive electronic equipment.
The RGX6500 and RGX7500 feature heavy-duty construction and durable components. A tubular steel frame protects the generator, its engine and components, while a large-capacity steel fuel tank and fuel gauge offer long run times and accurate fuel monitoring.
Durable electric components feature copper windings with high temperature insulation. Solenoid-actuated alternating current circuit breakers provide reliable overload protection, and ground fault circuit-interrupter receptacles help ensure operator safety.
Both generators offer numerous standard features to ensure optimum performance. An automatic idle control lowers the engine speed when no electrical power is needed, reducing fuel consumption and reducing noise.
The professional-grade control panel includes an hour meter to ensure proper maintenance intervals and tracking, and monitoring of total operating hours.
