Don't panic. It's a link to the manual not some random porn site.

Thanks for the link, looks like it's 3850 rpm, just got to wait until Monday when I pick up a tacho so I can check it.

That's rated speed, I'm sure the one on my mixer runs a lot slower than that. Probably nearer 1000rpm. Can probably check if you like

So the second link has 2800 rpm rated speed, I'm still new at this stationary engine business so should I be looking for a "tickover" of 1000 rpm then higher revs when I load it up?, I'm looking for an old car type dynamo to drive at the moment.

They run well enough at lower speeds, I'd be inclined to run it at a lower speed but making sure it's running fast enough to cool itself and drive the genny easy enough, run it too slow and it'll slog and run hot.
