Re: Northern Lights Generator
How much are you asking?

Re: Northern Lights Generator
Really not sure what it's worth. I'm new to this.

What would be a fair price?

Re: Northern Lights Generator
A fair price ? It depends on how and who determines what's fair to them and what there budget allows. $1000 might be fair to me but Joe might think $ 10 000 is fair.
Normally the seller has a price in mind......
No one likes to start guessing what you want
So make it easy and straight forward to the Cf

Re: Northern Lights Generator
I'm sorry--I'm really not trying to piss anyone off. I've been trying to research this all day. Some sites say $13K and another I just looked at says $3,850.

So, how about we say:
$2K or best offer. Plus you have to arrange for shipping. She's currently on my boat in Charleston, SC.

This spec does not really make sense. 50 Hz is the AC frequency in Europe and some other parts of the world but is normally 240 V

If is a US rated generator it would be 110V 60 Hz.

Skipmac, I'll have the mechanic confirm for me. I know it's 110v but I'm no expert in electronics.

See photo in first post.
I will add it here also

Re: Northern Lights Generator
Thank you to cotemar for posting the photo for me!

I couldn't figure out how to do it.

If you want a point of reference, found a new Northern LIghts 6 KW on eBay for $9800 and a new 9 KW for $11,800.

Re: Northern Lights Generator
Well, that would pay for a new chartplotter. Or a few months of daycare for my daughter. Hmmm.

Re: Northern Lights Generator
This genset looks exactly like my 6 kW unit. You can jumper between 120 and 240V service but I'm not sure on how to change between 50 and 60 Hz. You will have to adjust the rpm's obviously but there might be more to it.

Re: Northern Lights Generator
I was told it was a 2010.

Hold tight everyone--I'm getting more info (as she just came with the boat I bought).

I'll post more as soon as I have it.
