This high performance and reliable diesel generator is a two-pole, silent-type, direct-coupled, single-phase.

The GL9000 is a excellent choice for back-up power in solar/off-grid applications, whether it’s Pop-up market shop or mobile businesses like fast-food or coffee vans . Running a range time of 8.5 hours at full load, the GL9000 is the perfect solution to most of your power needs.

The compact design and low noise of the GL9000 makes it suitable for a large range of applications, while the large fuel tank and exceptional fuel economy extends operating periods between refuelling.


  • Compact Design: The unique arrangement of the radiator, engine and the fuel tank allows the unit to be compact compared with other generators in this range. The GL-6000/9000 generators achieve their compact design and superior performance by direct coupling the alternator to the engine.
  • Reliable & Durable: Kubota’s attention to detail results in greater reliability and durability. The Kubota super mini vertical diesel engines are water cooled and have increased performance for dependable horsepower and when direct coupled to the generator, provide continuous power output levels with minimum power loss.
  • Quieter Operation: The larger muffler makes the GL9000 the quietest in the range.  The use of the larger capacity radiator on the GL-6000/9000 generators, with oversize muffler plus a lower fan speed ensures minimum operating noise levels. A matched air cleaner hose further reduces suction noise to make sure these generators are the quietest available.
  • Cleaner Emmisions: The Kubota ETVCS vertical diesel engines which power the GL-6000/9000 generators are designed to meet the USA EPA Emission Control Tier 2 regulations.
  • Safety Measures: The GL-6000/9000 generators provide covers for the engine cooling fan and generator for safer operation. An automatic shutdown is activated if water temperature is to high or oil pressure drops below a safe operating level and a Starter Safety System prevents engaging again after initial start.
  • Easy Maintenance: The fuel capacity on the GL-6000/9000 has been increased to 28 litres for extended working applications. Control panels are centrally
    located and easy to use, providing full operating 
    information at a glance. Single sided maintenance reduces the operator’s workload and makes checking the oil, fuel, cooling water and battery levels a simple operation. Transportability is enhanced with special forklift openings on the base of the unit as well as one point lifting eye. A large capacity sump ensure that oil change levels are extended to 200hr intervals to reduce downtime and operating costs and a fully
    enclosed breathing system minimises splash back. 
    Double element air cleaners are standard allowing the GL-6000/9000 generators to be used in dusty or sandy environments. Another benefit of the generator and engine being direct coupled is that there is no drive belt to adjust on these models.
  • Longer Operation: The combination of a larger fuel tank and the engine’s superb fuel economy ensures longer hours of continuous operation.
  • 2 year / 2000 Hour Warranty: Full warranty on all engine and alternator components excluding wiring
