I just bought a 8000 watt generator from rigid. set it up and started it and it seemed like it was idling extremely high. I let it warm up for about 10 minutes and the idle never changed. It was so loud that I had to yell at my dad who was 3 feet away from me just to hear me. I plugged in some equipment equaling about 2000 watts and it seemed like it didnt even affect it the idle stayed the same the equipment worked. It seems to me like it is running at max capacity right from go when technically it should start low since there is no load on it and work up the idle as I add loads to it. Just as my other generator does. so my question is, is there a way to turn the idle down? I have been looking and I cant find a single thing about this issue.
No announcement yet.
