WOW we could run our entire neighborhood on that thing comfortably!! Your probably not going to be happy with fuel consumption, I'm guessing ...
Our house had a transfer panel wired up already when we moved here. It only ran select sections or appliances, so I dug into it & wired up some extras, completely NOT to code by any stretch ... but we needed the bathroom light to work (what good is having water when your showering in the dark?
), the washing machine, and microwave too. Came in handy the past 2 years, since we've lost power for a combined 12 days in that time. We're always the very last to get our power back, so you've got to be ready for anything here.
I've got a Yamaha EF6300iSDE. STUPID expensive - I could've done this MUCH cheaper, but I bought it mainly for the fuel economy & sound level. Plus I got it for 50% less than my local dealer wanted for it with sales tax .. AND it was dropped off right on my doorstep without having to go anywhere.
The electronics in this thing are frightening ( there's 3 separate MASSIVE .. & EXPENSIVE motherboards in there ...
) .. but Yamaha has been very good to me over the years with their motorcycles, so I put my faith in this thing. You all know how much I HATE electronics ...
I also have a Harbor Fright
China special I picked up for $80 shipped to my doorstep. I smashed it the very first use, because the carb was screwing up. I picked it up and slammed it on the pavement & busted the feet off it.
I use it to power the garage doors & lights in the barn, because the electronic safety systems keep tripping on the Yamaha whenever I try to run them with it. Since cleaning & fiddling with the carb, it runs ok .... for $80. HOLY FLARE of your lights though!! Definitely don't want to use this to power anything electrically sensitive ... VERY UNSTABLE output!!!
