Here is the Generator I picked up recently, powered by a VW industrial engine.

Hi,

I had to register to this forum so I could ask a couple of questions about that particular generator. I'm looking at buying a 10 kVa generator because I need a good powerful generator for an inverter welder. I have found one online and it is an ex army one, same as the one featured in this thread. Though someone replaced the VW engine with what looks like a Holden Barina (aka Opel Corsa)

My question relates to the alternator itself. It says it is a single phase 10kVa unit. But is it really?
I mean, it's it 1 phase where you can pull 30A or is it three separate circuits adding up to 10kVa?
The difference is crucial as I am working with a welder that requires 14A in use and spikes at 25A on start up.
I hope someone with electrical knowledge can answer that question as it could save me a thousand kilometers drive for nothing if it turns out being a 3 phases generator that only has 3 single phase plugs.

Thanks

Ben
