Honda Handy range offer low weight and low noise power

Honda have launched the revolutionary Handy range of generators - compact inverter technology half the weight and up to 50% quieter than traditional generators.
Honda has over recent years become the film & television industry's standard for small generators, from 350watts up to 10kw, known for their reliability and low noise level.
The 350 watt and 1kw units are used for battery charging and running small bits of kit like satellite phones, while the larger generators are used for lighting, edit suits, computers, construction, catering and so on. The new inverter range starts at 350watt up to 3kw, and can be linked together via a small cables turning two 1kw generators into 2kw or two 3kw into 6kw. This makes transporting much easier; 6kw can be lifted into the back of an estate car by just two people, whereas the Honda EX 5500 (5kw) is far too heavy for two people to lift. Ken-Lab gyro stabilisers have been stabilising hand held optical devices like cameras and binoculars for over 50 years.
Easily attached to any unit, the stabiliser is designed to run continuously and be ready for instant use. Twin rate gyros mounted on crossed axis senses deflections in pitch and yaw caused by tremors and vibrations and dynamically resist displacement through gyroscopic precession - a must when shooting from aeroplane, boat or car, and also used on a most camera mounts and SteadiCams.
CineBuild Ltd, established in 1969, are agents for Honda generators and also the Ken-Lab range of gyro stabilisers for sales hire and service.
