In an earlier post http://myphilippinelife.com/wiring-in-a-240v-backup-generator-in-a-swer-area/ we discussed our purchase of a Weima 3200 gasoline backup generator for our home in the rural Philippines. The generator is made in China by Chongqing Weima Power Machine Co., Ltd. The earlier post described how our area is served with a single load wire providing 230v and how we were able to reconfigure our generator hook-up to use our Weima generator which provides a twist lock outlet with two load pins (164v and 56v) and a ground totaling 220v.
In figuring out how to use the generator we partially disassembled it. We share some photos below. Now that we have used our generator intermittently for almost two years, we can say that we are happy with it. We have had eight hour long power outages and the Weima ran with no problems. It seems well made. It always starts on the first pull as long as you remember to open the fuel petcock and close the choke. The Weima seems identical to other generators sold under various name brands.
This photo shows that the Weima seems well-built. The quality of the wiring seems good and the main bearing seems of good quality.
