I doubt it
I think the number 1800 means 1800watt, if you consider power factor and efficiency into the calculation, that's about 1400 watts.
Pumping machines need a generator at least two times(sometimes more) their rating, same for freezers, because their starting current are quite high.

So if your pumping machine is 1.5hp, you need at least a 4.5kva generator, to prevent issues.
The same principle also applies to your freezer

I checked online your generator is 1.1kva . I don't think it would work

Don't. Go for the bigger sized one. The bigger sized one will do both. But don't use generator for pumping machine even if it can carry it. Freezer is okay. If you stay around Ipaja I know someone who wants to sell a gen bigger than this and clean and can serve the purpose

Go and buy parsun Generator 3200 to avoid any stories. Return that 1800 Firman generator or you will forever regret buying it. the Firman generator Are never reliable.Am a Gen mechanics . just buy that Firman generator and start crying your eyes out. Go buy parsun Generator 3200 so you that you will not say your village people don't want you to succeed. Anything Firman generator Run for your life , don't say my neighbor is using it so I will buy Firman generator

later you will say your village people don't want you to succeed. Don't come back here to complain once you buy it.

He already told you it cannot, and using fridge on it is stressing the Gen. Never buy medium Gen in Fairy used, buy fairy used bigger Gen instead

just noticed recently each time I try pumping water with my SPG 3000E automatic gen ... The sumo starts pumping in space of 3 minutes it cuts off and stops pumping ... I have tried to increase the voltage of the gen , it does the same thing... Is it from the gen or sumo

You don't have public Power supply in your area? Use NEPA to know if it will still repeat same thing.
Re: Can This Generator Pump Water from a borehole Or Power My Medium Size Freezer? by Etosha: 9:32pm On Oct 09, 2022
It can pump water, power ac and electric iron. But don't use it to power all simultaneously. Using it to power these things will eventually ruin the rings ( which will need to be replaced).

We have low voltage in my area ... Sometimes the light is below 100 or 150 volts

Please our pumping machine was on while there was light, they forgot to off it when nepa took light, when we put on the gen in the night, it was still on, not knowing, this morning went to pump water, but there was no water, the pumping machine has stopped working, please what could be the problem.
Re: Can This Generator Pump Water from a borehole Or Power My Medium Size Freezer? by Nemesis0147(m): 9:21am On Aug 10, 2023
Yes but you will have to reduce the load before trying it…
Like turning off your have electronics.

your sumor pump has been affected….since it is pumping but not pumping water…then I doubt if it is an electrical issue.

You need to call those that fix sumo, they will check the box first before concluding the fault is from the pumping machine.

Secondly, do you usually use your generator for your apartment sametime when pumping water?
Re: Can This Generator Pump Water from a borehole Or Power My Medium Size Freezer? by Newupdatee: 2:59am On Aug 11, 2023
if you try to use that 1800 for pumping machine, it will destroy the coil, the rings and the capacitor. How many horse power is the pumping machine let me recommend a capable gen for you
