We have a Fischer Panda Generator for sale. The video describes our generator and is also available on Youtube. Please contact rick at escher dot ca with any questions you might have. We are asking $5750 + shipping. We are in Georgia, USA.

We are upgrading to a larger Fischer Panda generator to support our new washing machine and 240 V water maker.

Re: Fischer Panda 8 kWh Marine Diesel Generator

Just asking, what is it you’re running that an 8kw can’t handle? I’m looking at generators at the moment and 8 sounds a lot to me...

Iím glad you liked the video - we seriously donít know the Ďpeople on the streetí. We just had a lot of foot traffic on the dock that day and it felt like a fun thing to do as my husband was at the boat show">Miami boat show.

Re: Fischer Panda 8 kWh Marine Diesel Generator

Our battery charger delivers 240 amps of charging at 12 volts to our new Lithium batteries.When we add that to our CruiseRO 240 V water maker, our Splendide washer/dryer and potentially AC we get to about 32 amps at 240 volts. That is slightly more than we can expect an 8 kw generator to deliver. Itís really the Lithium batteries that is forcing the upgrade because they take that full charge current for the entire charge cycle.

Re: Fischer Panda 8 kWh Marine Diesel Generator

So just de-rate the LFP charging a little, make use of whatever's leftover from the current loads.

No need to get them near Full anyway, healthier if you don't.

This was explored as an option but the battery manufacturer did not recommend it.
