The Smarter tools It's actually 3000/3500, it looks like there are a few QC Issues according to reviews, additionally it comes with a a Hour Meter and the Warranty is only good for 1 year or 60 Hours of operation. (Accroding to one review)
I'm getting instead the Power Stroke 2500/3000, 2 years Warranty, and looks like a decent quality. $193.77 with Tax and Free Home Delivery! :-) Thanks OP Repped.

I'm considering the propane model. Power outages in my area are rare and I like that propane doesn't degrade like gas. I have a gas furnace. Would I be able to tie into the existing buried tank? Would this be able to run the blower on the furnace and a few lights? How about the well pump occasionally kicking on?

If your underground tank is propane you will be good there. I agree with your thoughts on not storing gasoline at the house.

Blower and a few lights will work.

Well pump depends on your well, so hard to say.

Would it be correct that the Smarter Tools one is no better in terms of QC than the Durostar 4000/3300 one that Amazon had for $249.99 for the last week (only now did they jack the price back up to $299.99)?

http://www.amazon.com/DuroStar-DS...004918MO2/

I still have my Durostar 4000S $250 order on hold and haven't been able to decide if it's the one I want. I know I want a generator for emergencies, but I'm just not sure about any of these models. I was worried about the 10-20% negative reviews of the Durostar (mainly about it dying quickly) so I've been procrastinating, and I have 2 more days to decide. Does this Smarter Tools one have any advantages over the Durostar in terms of quality control? I'd take a lower capacity generator that is reliable over a higher capacity one that isn't. I've never heard of either brand, and I assume they are just generic cheaply made Chinese made stuff. Does Smarter Tools honor their warranty better than Durostar is reported to?

And can you return any of these to a Home Depot store if you have problems with it and get a full refund?

Does HD offer a service protection or replacement plan? since all these no name cheap junk have a high possibility of giving trouble. that way, these can be returned back to HD for any issues. Also, how about credit card extended warranties honoring generators? I bet they will refund it before asking you to ship it. Also, they are the ones who usually pay for shipping.

The big thing about an extended warranty on a generator... You need it when the power is out. Around here, when you get a bad outage, all the stores sell out quickly. So who cares if you have an extended warranty, you won't be able to get a replacement right away. And when you finally do, the power is likely to be back on.

It's kind of like getting a no name parachute and an extended warranty. If it works, you got lucky. If it doesn't, will the extended warranty really help all that much? No such a slick deal after all.
