    I could not see any brushes that would be touching the rotor. I am not sure if the pics accurately show that or not.

    "Now I have to get the hookup pieces to the electric panel. I plan on using an Interlock Device on a soon to be added 50 amp, 240V circuit. If anyone has advice or experince with the interlock device I would appreciate any comments." Good question sdkubota! Thanks for asking it!
    I also hope someone chimes in here...I want to get a PTO gen for emergency use.... but I know "SQUAT" about proper hook-up/useage. I have a 220 volt well pump which runs off my main power box. I'd just as soon know how to hook-up to the main box and just power the entire house. Wouldn't that be possible? Just feed 220 to the main panel box and then just use limited items within the house? Let the panel box distribute whether 220 or 110 is being used? Rather than stringing out numerious extension cords? When it involves electricity..I want the least problamatic system involved! Thanks, Greg

I will post some pics of mine later today. If you still have the cover off take some of the area above the bearing Like in the first pic the brush holder has 2 wires going to it. Thanks

    Yes that's how I have mine hooked up. I use a mechanical interlock on the front of the panel. When I turn the main breaker off it allows me to turn on a 50 breaker that's on the interlock. It's just back feeding a 50 amp breaker and the main 200 amp can't be turned back on while the generator is being used on that 50 amp breaker on the other end of the interlock. And yes you can turn on and off what you need and don't need to keep it below what the generator is rated or 50 amps if that's what you'll use. Very simple.

    I have about 90 ft. of cable with quick connect plugs. I have for a lack of a better term a rat tail from the service panel to about 15 ft. outside with a quick plug and then the main drop to the generator that has another quick connect. I used Hubble but I have access to surplus/scrap equipment and was lucky to have found them. They are expensive. But there are other types. The ones I use are water tight. So you have the right idea. Make it simple as you can so you can get hooked up fast if you need too.

    I have an outdoor wood boiler and when cold weather arrives I keep my generator on the tractor just in case the power goes off. I can be up and running in less that 10 minutes if I have too. The circulating pump on the boiler runs 24 hours a day and if we lose power for long with 180 deg. water that pump may not start back up and then have to change it out too. So I try and be ready to get it back running as quick as I can.

    looks like they are the same. RK needs to change their statement about it being brush-less in their question and answer section.

    Look just above the bolt on the end of the shaft there is a black plastic brush holder look below this box at the shaft and there will be brass colored slip rings for the brushes to ride. The pis I posted show close ups of the brush holder.

    You are correct it has the same setup. However, the wires coming off of mine of very light gauge like they are for the voltage regulator, an excitor, or some monitoring device, etc. There can't be many amps coming off of those wires. I can't tell for sure the gauge of your wires and should have taken a photo.

    Another question I have for anyone with the similar generator is on the oil overflow plug on the side of the gearbox. My plug is located in the uper portion of the plate but the photo in the operator's manual shows the plug on the lower portion of the plate. This could have been an easy mixup at the factory but I would rather not have a surplus of gear oil working on getting into the generator portion through the seal. Anyone can help, throw me a bone! I think I am going to weld a portion of a 1/2" coupler and use a plumbing plug rather then wait for another plate.

    Make sure and check the relief plug. When I was running mine I drained the oil and when I took the plug out it had considerable pressure from heating up. I took the top off of the relief and there is a spring that holds a ball check and the spring was very stiff and I swapped it out for a lighter spring.

    Is your overflow plug on the top or bottom portion of the plate? Thanks for the relief spring tip.
