Harbor Freight Model 3708 (5.5KW) that I use for my 220V tire warmers at the track and a Coleman 2250 I bought 20 years ago for running the freezer and a couple of lights in Florida during Hurricanes. Luckily I am on Rte 106 and the main power for Carbondale comes right by my house, we rarely lose power and then not more than a few hours. I would invest in a natural gas powered unit with an Auto Xfer Switch if our power was not so reliable here *knock on wood*.
I use the 3708 to feed the essential loads (through a back fed breaker in the garage after opening the main, don't do this at home kids!
) when we have outages that last more than an hour, otherwise I just enjoy the return to simpler times!
The 2250 gets pressed into service if I am working somewhere and don't have power.
