Daihatsu Model 950P with Model 6250 or 6255 Alternators.

on either Propane or Natural gas. Models also available in Gasoline.
Daihatsu gas engines are designed for 24 hour a day operation. A
realistic life expectancy is between 15,000 to 50,000 hours
depending on model and maintenance. (The popular RV generators on
the same scale are only 2,500 hours) These gas engines are derived
from a diesel engine. The
injectors are removed and a gas carburetor, spark plugs and ignition
are added and the compression ratio lowered.
Conversion / manufacture is by Daihatsu. The heavy-duty
diesel type engine block, bearings, crankshaft, cylinder and pistons
provide a very reliable and long life generator.
has discontinued the use of the Model 6200 series Alternators on the
Kohler and Kawasaki engines. In Telecommunication applications the Kohler and Kawasaki
engines have served very well because there was a strong level of
maintenance and mechanical support, in addition the engine run time
was limited. In solar and rural applications there is a much lower
level maintenance and mechanical support available. Typically (85%)
of rural and solar applications significantly underestimate the run
time required of the generator, generators are called upon to run
thousands of hours each year as opposed to the hundreds as
most notable advantage of the Daihatsu 950P is that there are four
large bearings to support the crankshaft as opposed two smaller
bearings in the Kohler and Kawasaki engines.
The model 6200 series has a heavy rotor and a small air gap
(for high efficiency) so heavy duty bearings lead to long life and
Model 6250 alternator with the Daihatsu 950P generator is a very
significant improvement over the typical RV and construction site
generators. In many
Solar / Wind sites owners are replacing their RV / construction site
generators once or twice year.
This is especially true in warm climates where systems are
powering air-conditioning. The long life Daihatsu engine and our situation where the
generator output can connect directly to the battery allowing to
higher charging currents means that this product can serve for 10 to
Model 6250 alternator with the Daihatsu 950P is excellent for
electric hybrid vehicles. This
application requires a very durable generator that can handle large
current surges, road vibration, and long periods of operation.
fueled generator sets are supplied with vapor withdraw carburetion.
Fuel supply pressure required is 6 – 8 ounces. Liquid withdraw is
available at an additional cost. Fuel tanks are not supplied and can
be obtained from your local propane supplier.
