Question about Makita G6100R 5800 Watt Generator
Hey guys. Have a makita 6100r generator that runs and starts a ok. It had been laid up since last storm season, with some gas in the tank that had been sta bil'd. Starts up ok, but doesn't seem to auto idle. I've only had minor loads on it, but with zero load, and the auto idle switch "on" there is no difference in idle, it seems to be running flat out. Thoughts? Thanks

Just noticed your question... If you still need a little help:
1. If the gas is from last year, drain the tank and the carb bowl and replace gas with new. Visually inspect the inside of the tank ..be sure there's no sediment that needs to be cleaned out.
2. remove air cleaner and make sure it's not plugged or dirty
3. plug the spark plug and clean with spray carb cleaner.
4. At end of season, mix some gas stablizer in with the fuel to keep it from going bad while in storage.
Let me know how it goes..

The battery charging is also a load. If the battery is not well charged or old it may need about 60 - 120 W to charge, which is not "Idle".

You may be asking too much of the unit; the 5800 watts a which it is spec'd, may be a 'peak' power rating which may be 15-20% higher than its continuous rating.
30 Amps at 220 volts implies 6600 watts which is higher than even the peak power rating.
I would expect the unit to produce ~4800 watts continuous or around 22 Amps.
Decided to check my statements and found this, which I quote:
Generator Volts AC (60Hz) 120/240 Max. Output Current 5800W-48.3A/24.2A Rated Output Current 4800W-40A/20A Volts DC (AMPS) 12 (8.3)
