I am not familiar with this particular generator. However, I can tell you this. Generator engines need to run at a constant set RPM. This is how they generate current. So you may hear a drop in engine RPM and then a "rev" as the engine recovers from the load the generator put on the engine. However generators WILL NOT increase rpm as the load is applied. So bottom line, the engine will need to run a set RPM to generate the correct voltage/hertz.

Just a side note: Inverter generators are NOT rpm dependent. They can adjust RPM based on the load.

“My wolf gave me trouble. It turned out to be more than...”

Written on: 30/06/2010

My wolf gave me trouble. It turned out to be more than 1 fault.
I used old petrol and that seemed to kill it. bu it was a red hering.

I could not get it to run for more than a few seconds.
Cutting a long story short. I found the fault. A corroded conector in the 4 way block. under the fuel tank. cleaned and lubed now it works.The NGK spark plug is better than the one supplied. as called for in the manual BR5ES.

I think it is a good value tool and I run 1/2 my house on it in a power cut… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/02/2009

The Wolf Power 800 is good starting. Inexpensive base entry generator. Easy to carry In its first year of very light use the carb float retaining pin broke as did the automatic load (current) controlled throttle. The engine start/stop switch also fell apart. Many of the electrical connectors were loose prone to disconnecting through engine vibration. Poor quality manufacture in my opinion. Lumpy 2 stroke engine which misfired particulary under light loads.

Written on: 03/08/2008

The wolf power 800 stand by generator seems to run for ever on one tank of fuel, pretty quiet and can run large requesting appliances. I really like it despite the fact that it could do with slightly more power and perhaps it could also be a little bit more quiet… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/09/2007 by aldrea88 (2 reviews written)

Bought my Wolf 800 as back up in case of domestic power failure. On its arrival, I test started it, then just stored it in the garage. About 2 years later, I decided to use it whilst camping, but it wouldn't start. As I had failed to drain the petrol from the Carburettor and tank, the petrol had evaporated, leaving a residue which clogged the carb. The solution was to put some 2 stroke mixture into a small hand spraygun and give two squirts directly into the carb (having removed the air filter… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/09/2007 by aldrea88 (2 reviews written)

This generator was bought in case of emergency due to domestic power cuts. On delivery I got it going to make sure it was ok, and foolishly then stored it in the garage, with petrol still in the tank and carburettor. About a couple of years later I decided to take it on a camping trip, but it would not start. The petrol had evaporated, and the oil residue clogged up the carb. (Yes I know, the book says drain out all the petrol out when laying it up, but who reads the book?) Having established… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/10/2006 by clivegtiguy (2 reviews written)

I bought my generator last year as a back-up for caravanning. If my battery is failing in the van I will give it a few hours to Jazz up the battery a bit or run a TV. So far I have had no complaints about noise from other campers. I fired the Wolf Power 800 generator up and walked away, about 40 feet, and the noise is barely noticeable. I looked at a few cheaper makes of the same design, but the build quality was nowhere near as good, and you would need to be Popeye to get them started. Highly… Read Full Review

“You get what you pay for! ”

Written on: 02/02/2006 by amoore1 (6 reviews written)

You get what you pay for!
The Wolf 800 is a great DIY generator / very small emergency stand by generator (will run a few 60 watt light bulbs and a 400 watt heater when the power goes off).

If I could choose again, I would go for something with a larger output… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/06/2005 by murphyjj101 (1 review written)

I have had one of these Wolf Power 800's now for 6 months, using it on many jobs on a new build project - it is not a pro standard, but for good DIYers works well for power tools - even had a 1200W router running off it. Only bad point really is the sparc plug lead - not great quality - but can be put back on fairly easily, and slight petrol leak if you have to have it running on angled ground. Cut out works well, had an angle grinder running and I was a bit too ambitious on cutting through the… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/03/2004 by Reviewer (1 review written)

The filler cap on the Wolf Power 800 jammed on after one use - needed to use a vice to get it off. Omega replaced the cap for me under warranty. The unit sounds rough under partial load but once fully loaded is much sweeter. A bit noisy.
Good value and runs for several hours on a single fill. I've used it three times so far on power failures to the house. Overall I'm very pleased with it… Read Full Review

Bit worried about your comment about the noise as this is advertised as a "quiet running" generator!!
