Rated 4 out of 5 by from hgca3000 good generator for back-up power a little noise could be quieter.but for what you pay its a good product. allways starts with the 1st or 2nd pull just remember to pull the choke and i highly rec you get a spare recoil starter there not that well built just dont pull to hard and it will be ok. and runs very well below 0 deg c. and like i said its a good product good price you can get 4 of these generators for the price of 1 high end generator.

is this generator good for an rv,camping

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes it is. This unit may be a bit big. Use the wattage chart to be sure you get the right one for you. It does have a spark arrester making it safe for campsite use, but may be a bit loud due to its size. Again buy the one to fit your wattage needs.

Will this product efficiently run my sump pump?

Asked by: Anonymous
The formula to use is volts times amps equals watts, then get a unit that corresponds. Get a little more as these units demand alot on start up.

Adequate power for a remote building site?

I want to run a 7.25 skill saw and drill at a remote building site. I would also like to be able to recharge my 18v Ryobi tools with the Ryobi charger on site. Would this generator be adequate for this purpose?
Asked by: Anonymous
Absolutely. They are used for that all the time. You should be able to use a couple of skill saws at the same time. There are two 20 amp 120VAC outlets on it. Just dont run two saws off one outlet.

can it run a Dewalt compressor

Asked by: Anonymous
Most of the small compressors that run on 120VAC and have induction motors as opposed to motors with brushes have very high starting current, though briefly. In the shop I worked in we found that the starting surge could be as high as 35 amps. Thats over twice what the outlet rating is that you plug into. Even a 3000 watt generator with 3500 watt overload potential will have a struggle with that. Think of it this way, when you plug your compressor in the generator is motoring along putting out 120Volts atr zero amps (no load). Suddenly it has to accept a very high load and it almost stops running because it does not yet have the right fuel mixture to manage that load. It's quite a struggle to get up to speed. The best solution, if you need a portable compressor, is to buy a gas powered one from the start. Most have Honda engines on them which start easy and are dependable in the field. Even if you use an oil bath electric compressor from a wall outlet don't use an extension cord. If you must use an extension for some strange reason then make sure it's one that's got very heavy wire on it such as 12 gauge or better yet 10 gauge. You may find it cheaper to just buy more hose. That's what is recommended in all the compressor manuals. Don't use a generator unless is is a really big one of 10KW or more else you are asking for trouble. Good luck!
