Great spec for the price, although I wonder if the engine is serviceable or if it's cheap chinese junk with no spares available and the whole lot has to go in the bin once it's had its time.
#2
we brought a genertor from aldi only lasted couple of years kept rattling apart
#3
Don't these come with the 3 year warranty, then?
#4
dont bother with these. The last one we bought didnt last very long. Yes it has a 3 year warranty but Aldi no longer do returns at their store on certain items and getting a refund was next to a nightmare! There was no replacement option as they had zero in stock at the time as it was a seasonal item.
#5

Don't you have a right to return something at the point of sale or something. One of you legal experts want to weigh in on this?
#12
With a statutory warranty yes (typically considered 1 year but technically up to around 6 if you can prove defect/unfit for purpose etc., - especially difficult in machines with moving parts where a certain level of wear/tear is expected), if it's an extended warranty then that's usually a manufacturer's one and they can require you to contact the manufacturer.

How hard is it to call the warranty number given in the instructions, or included on the website (for years) or even your local store manager should be able to help with details ofg how to claim under warranty.

This product was sold last year (at the same price). You are right, there probably wasn't any left instore when you went back. Whist everyone here seems like you to say don't bother, my local store sold out by midday last year.!

If the products all failed last year, so everyone had their money back, do you really think they would stock the same product this year?

This item is rightly HOT!
... so one wonders why the same deal last year only reached 29 degrees? Hmmm..., oh yeah, perhaps because I posted it...

Only thing I would say to those interested is beware of the actual poower output. This seems the same item as last year, but last year they were more clear. Then the peak output was 3200w, but the continuous output (which is what is more important, and how generators are usually marketed by) is only 2800W

Premier is bag on! the continuous output is the main detail this is what it will run at all day, a 3200 will run at about 2500-2800watt its a great price for any user if oil is checked and its not abused should be fine remember to chain it up as its easy to maneuver also easy to nick!

In a few years time, this would be a nice little back up for those days when the wind doesn't blow and all those silly windmills are not generating anything.
However, right now we still have a few working nuclear plants, so the generator is optional.

Both :)

It has 2x13A sockets for 230V output and and a 32A socket for 110V output.

But I think you'll be lucky to get one now. 90mins after opening at my local store yesterday, they only had 2 left. Would have originally had 8, perhaps 12 delivered.

Don't think I would trust buying anything over £20 from Aldi
#18
first snag...it clearly states not to be used near any moisture...hard to avoid in outdoor use.. Ineed it for PA power.

how much heat do these generate ? Could stick it in a tent with a fan and a tube to extend the exhaust

So it cant be used in the rain then?.

Hi rogerharris, and welcome to HUKD.

Where does it clearly say that?

Whilst it's generally a bad idea to mix electricity with water, it's IP23 rated meaning it is protected against rain up to 60 degrees vertical.
