    I don't know if Lowes and Homo Depot has changed their policies or not, but you used to see a LOT of lightly used generators returned right after a hurricane. The stores would usually discount them a good bit.

    Returns...that's how I got mine. HD store had 2 returns that were never started. I offered the manager 2 for the price of 1 and he agreed. Score!

    I have a generator with Briggs engine. Highly dependable and not so expensive.

    we are having some concrete work done...

    guys showed up with excavator, tools etc.. today.
    the first thing that they took off the truck was a champion 1800.
    it looked like they had used it for a boat anchor...
    it cranked right up and they started cutting boards...
    I started to tell them I had electricity inside building, but decided to watch the generator perform.
    I asked about it... and got a very positive response.
    I know this is anecdotal, but I have a Champion 4/3.5kW generator which I really like. They are indeed made in China, but they have US based customer support, with spare parts available in the U.S. I'm not a salesman, just a satisfied customer.

    The land that winter forgot


    Just a few more comments on the Predator 8750 we bought:
    -Starts first time, every time and will run for about 12 hours on a full tank at 50% load
    -Already set up with power inlet box in an outbuilding and tested successfully to backfeed and run everything at the same time (including central A/C) except for the water heater and electric stove. We could flip a couple breakers and keep hot water and oven but hurricanes come in the hottest months of the year so we can live without the oven.
    -Just make sure to run it completely out of gas if just testing to reduce gas tank rust issues reported by others. We keep SeaFoam in all of our storage gas.
    -At <$600 including the wheel kit and inlet box, we are pretty happy with this setup.
    -We still have a Coleman portable that outputs 3500 running watts that we can use for....whatever, like if we don't want to run out to the outbuilding to flip the switch

    Harbor Freight has these on sale all the time, and hurricane season starts again in 4 months.

    My champion would not start this AM. -20 degrees, AHH!!!. My fault though, had not changed the plug in couple years and I just took out the spark arrester as in the tool shed, exhaust goes out a 6 inch cage blower. Changed plug , no spark arrester, started right up. Had a spare plug taped to the frame. I do love the remote start when I have my BVD,s on. Mighty cold in DA UP.
