It depends on the generator. Low speed 4-pole ones like Northern Lights, Kohler, etc are generally rated for continuous load, while high speed 2-pole ones like NextGen, Entec, etc are generally rated at max temporary load.

For example, our previous NextGen was plate-rated 5.5kW, but could only be run at 4.5kW continuous. Our current Kohler is plate-rated 8kW, and that is for 8kW continuous duty.

That's an odd coincidence.

Huh, and I already gave the same reply. Short memory, I guess.
