How's that for a bit of good luck - a very little used Wolf WP2200 petrol genny!

Questions is, where can I get or download a user manual.

Can't even find the wolf website, let alone any pdf instructions etc.

Surely a company as big as wolf would have a website?

I think Omega Wolf went bust a while ago, maybe that's why there isn't a website. Someone on here will hopefully be able to help you.

if it still wont start take the fuel tap off and check for corrosion mine did it ended taking the fuel pipes off and cleaned em all out


done it to a coupple now seems to be a common fault

It starts and runs fine, but the revs seem a bit random and I understand that they are supposed to self regulate to the correct speed to maintain 50hz. I there are various springs and levers here and there so I wanted to see what's what to check the mechanisms.

It wasn't donated because it wasn't working, just surplus to requirements from a family friend who lost the manual a while back.

Think they are the same as the rebadged ALDI powercraft ones, so i will have a look if i've got the manual for mine, but don,t hold your breath:lol: If i remember correctly, they hunt around a bit until you put them under load, have you tried anything plugged in??:)

As 67zippy said, on a lot of these small gennys the voltage regulator doesn't work very well without a load on them, plug a lamp in to it and see if it still hunts (least with a lamp if it blows it up it shouldn't cost too much to repair ;) )

It doesn't so much hunt, as wander all over the place. I plugged a150 watt inspection lamp in and it was flickering due to low revs. A prod at some of the lever rods sped it up and improved the situation,but it settled down to a speed too slow.

I need to find the mechanism that regulates the speed. The load doesn't make a difference to the revs.
