Powerful Petrol Generator

The HY7000LEK-2 is a powerful yet easily portable petrol open-frame generator from Hyundai, powered by a highly economical 389cc / 13hp single-cylinder 4-stroke engine that is able to produce 5.5kW / 6.8kVA.

Highly Portable Generator

The integrated wheel kit makes moving this machine very easy, allowing you to easily set it up exactly where it’s needed on your site or on your business or residential premises.

Extremely Reliable

Built for the most demanding of jobs, the HY7000LEK-2 is an extremely reliable workhorse of a generator, with its single-cylinder 4-stroke OHV air-cooled engine generating a maximum power of 5.5kW.

Easy To Transport

Despite weighing 86kg, the HY7000LEK-2 has a rugged open frame and is extremely easy to move around thanks to its built-in wheel kit and folding handles.

Suitable For Sensitive Equipment

Equipped with a Hyundai copper-wound AVR alternator to keep the voltage output smooth (within +/- 3% of 230V), the HY7000LEK-2 is suitable for powering sensitive electronic equipment, such as televisions, PCs and laptops, in your home or business. This alternator is also heavy-duty enough to easily handle the harsh demands of power tools and building site equipment.

Low-Noise Technology

Using the latest low-noise engine technology, and an improved muffler design, the HY7000LEK-2 produces only 65 dBA @ 7m to minimise any disruptions or disturbances to your family, employees or neighbours.

Digital Display

The onboard digital display meter displays hours run, the output voltage and frequency, making it easy to know when a service on the generator is due, ensuring generator longevity.

Easy To Start

The easy electric key-start function makes starting this generator easier than ever before. There is also a backup recoil start system to ensure you are never left without power, although the generator recharges its own battery whilst in use to make sure your electric start system is always ready to go.

Plenty of Sockets

This powerful genset is fitted with 1x 230v 32A & 2x 115v 16A sockets to ensure you always have plenty of space to power whatever is needed.

Thoughtful Design

This petrol generator’s sockets are placed on the end facing the control panel to minimise any potential damage when wheeling this portable generator through narrow gaps and doorways.

Low Maintenance

With low service and maintenance requirements, the HY7000LEK-2 is incredibly easy to use and has full Hyundai UK parts back up. It also features a low oil alert which will shut down the engine automatically if the oil level drops to minimise any damage to the engine, as well as overload protection which will cut off power if it exceeds the maximum energy capacity.


This generator is ideal for site use, commercial use, trade use or even for home or garage use for powering lighting rigs, power tools, garages, workshops or sensitive home equipment, etc. Note that petrol generators must never be used inside due to risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Petrol-Powered Generator

As this generator is petrol-powered, please note that when storing your generator for a long period of time, we recommend you either run the engine dry of fuel, drain any leftover fuel or use a fuel additive to prevent the petrol from ‘going off’ whilst sat in the generator. Modern unleaded petrol, when left for long periods can congeal and clog the carburettor which can cause problems starting your generator in the future.

3 Year Warranty

This 6.8kVA diesel generator comes with a 3 year Hyundai warranty with full UK parts and service backup for added peace of mind.

Generator kVA Ratings

All of our generators have a kVA rating that is higher than the kW. This is because we have assumed the appliances you are going to power have a load factor/power factor of 0.8 – therefore the ‘assumed’ kVA rating of the load would be higher. This is industry standard and it is usually best to scope the right unit based on the kW.
