I think it's like 6500 running and 7500 peak or something. It was $699 (same as my 9000peak / 7500 running one that I bought).
I preferred the more watts instead of alternate fuel options. I wish it was the same watts and I would have been all over it!
I have 3 propane tanks that I could use - and Costco actually sells a 100lb propane tank for like $99 at my local store that I would be able to get through a few days with a generator with just that and never have to worry about the fuel filter.

This one seems like a better deal.
I wish the propane ones would come on sale

Good price. Not sure if I want to replace a gasket in the dark, in the middle of an ice storm, but at $819, maybe you can buy a backup for your backup
Almost 20 gallons per day.
That about $70-$80 bucks a day at 50% load. But better than sitting in the dark watching you freezer melt.

PowerLand 8,000 running 10,000 peak watt Generator from Costco $819 includes shipping
Costco has a PowerLand 10,000 Watt, electric start generator for $819. I am not familiar with this brand, but I presume you are getting good quality and backing from Costco.
8,000 running Watts
Amazon has it for $1,299. Not too many reviews and they are mixed. The bad reviews seem to focus on it blowing a gasket within the first couple months of purchase, but one of those reviews said that problem was related to just a specific lot of generators.
The Powerland PRO PD10000EP gas generator is a powerhouse. It is a perfect for the home, providing enough power output to run several appliances including central heating and cooling systems. Contractors looking for a power source on the job site will find this unit equally as useful and its heavy-duty design is sure to stand up to years of use. Rated watts: 8,000 / Surge watts: 10,000.
