Fischer Panda 8000 mini generator

I have a Fischer Panda 8000 mini generator for sale. It has about 700 hours. It starts and runs great but was having issues with overtemp warnings when loaded fully (it ran all day at 35-40 amps but would overtemp at above 40) that was suspected to be the temperature sensor when it was removed. It has a one year old heat exchanger and exhaust elbow as well as most other replaceable parts such as winding cooler, etc. No oil usage between service noticed.
Spare parts bag with belts, etc.
Located in Harpswell Maine at Great Island Boat Yard on a palate ready to ship. You can pick up or arrange shipping from there. GIBY will probably be happy to handle shipping for you but that is between you and them.
Price $1000 or best offer.

Re: Fischer Panda 8000 mini generator

Is this still available? So it was working when it came out, just auto stopped when the temperature went above 40c? (walker)at(m)ontana(c)ommunication(n)etwork(.)(net ) ;use letters in parentheses for email.
Thanks
Rob

Re: Fischer Panda 8000 mini generator

Yes. Still available. Not sure what the temperature was when it stopped. It has a fuel shutoff and a message on the remote panel that says "Overtemp" I cannot say it was actually over temperature or not.
After waiting a while for everything to cool down and the shutoff to reset the engine starts right up and runs fine.

Re: Fischer Panda 8- mini generator

It should be called the 8-mini instead of the 8000. I have documentation of both but the plate says 8-mini. I didn't realize the 8000 was an older different model.

The weight is about 350lbs. I don’t know the cost of shipping as there are a lot of variables such as to a boatyard versus residence, etc. it is located in Harpswell ME and you can call the owner of the boatyard Steve Rowe at Great Island Boat Yard who has offered to help anyone ship it if needed for cost on his end. It is on a palette so there shouldn’t be much in the way of packaging needed. He may have some shippers he recommends if you don’t know any.

That is something I am not sure of. It is probably in the manual linked above. The generator fed a 50 amp 240 volt system without difficulty. I never popped the breaker. I don't think I ever had enough load to do that.
