answer 2
Per the product's owner's manual, the iX2000 portable inverter generator, model number 6719, should be filled with clean, fresh, unleaded gasoline featuring a minimum rating of 87 octane/87 AKI (91 RON). Up to 10% ethanol (gasohol) is acceptable; where available, non-ethanol-premium fuel is recommended. Moreover, we do not recommend alternative fueling options like E85 or using a gas/oil mix. Modifying the engine to run on alternative fuels will immediately void the product's warranty. If you have any other product-related inquiries, please know that we can be reached 24/7 at 888-GENERAC (436-3722).

Question

What kind of sine wave does the 6719 have, pure or modified also what makes this generator be named inverter?

Inverters come in to flavors, modified sine wave or pure/true sine wave. So do generators so what kind of sine wave does yours operate with. A pure/true sine wave is the same as house hold 110 ac and works well with microwaves and electronics like tv's and computers. Modified does not work as well with microwaves and can cause static in tv screens and stereo sound.

The iX Series inverter technology takes the raw power produced by the generator and passes it through a special electronic microprocessor to provide clean and stable power, safe for computers and other sensitive electronic devices. The total harmonic distortion for the iX Series units is less than 5%.

Question

Oil Level

Do you tilt the generator on it's side to fill with oil?
The illustrations indicate a slanted oil fill tube, but the iX2000 looks very straight.

If tilted on the side, still fill to the threads?
Is there any danger of over-filling?

when you overfill the crankcase in your car the oil becomes aerated from the crank counterweights and rod caps whipping the oil which feeds the oil sump an air/oil mix that reduces oil pressure.this generator doesn't use a pressurised oil lubrication system(no oil pump)it uses a splash system(like a lawn mower).

answer 2
Per the unit's owner's manual, Generac's IX2000 portable inverter generator, model number 6719, should be placed on a firm, level surface when oil is being added. The oil level can be checked by removing the oil filler cap; the oil level should be at the bottom of the threads on the oil fill pipe. Do not overfill the unit with oil, as this can cause high oil pressure that can cause premature engine wear and damage. Please note that any issues incurred to a unit due to negligent service will not be covered under the product's warranty. If you do not have access to your product's documentation, it can be obtained online by using your product's model or serial number for searching purposes via the following link: http://www.generac.com/service-supp.... Please contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722), with any other product-related comments, questions, or concerns.

Our iX Series portable generators will run off of gasoline only. Generac does not offer a portable unit that is able to use diesel fuel. For units that would utilize diesel fuel, we would recommend looking into our industrial units, which can be purchased through your local certified Industrial dealer.

maybe,the initial startup load on a power washer is similar to other high inertial loads like air compressors.inverter generators don't supply much dynamic headroom in their output,dissimilar to conventional generators.if the initial startup current exceeds 16 or 17 amps,no it will not operate the power washer.

We do not recommend using any type of auxiliary tank. The only tank that should be used is the on-board manufacturer’s tank. In addition to these recommendations, it should be noted that the use of any auxiliary tank will likely void an end user’s warranty, in nearly every instance. All units are required to be checked for oil periodically for usage purposes.

Grounding the ix2000?

Some say you have to ground the ix2000. Would grounding really have a negative effect as far as 'portability'? I mean, who wants to run around with a couple of grounding rods and a roll of 10 ga. wire, pounding it in wherever you use, then going through the hassle of removing everything?

Generac requires that the iX2000 inverter generator be grounded according to the National Electric Code, which is always subject to interpretation by the local inspector. Local electrical codes may also require proper grounding of the generator. We recommend that you consult with a local electrician for grounding requirements in your local area.
