It's that time again! (No not football season, yet). Hurricane season!
I've been wanting to get one of the Duromax/Durostar Ebay generator deals for quite some time.
Last year, after the hurricane here in Florida, and no power for 8 days. I swore, I would never let that happen again. What is worse, is that I got complacent and was "comfortable" as I had been without power 2 weeks and then another 2 weeks directly after getting power back for a week, in the 04' hurricanes.
I saw the "hybrid" 10,000 surge watt that has been on SD many times for $599.99-649.99 hit a $500.00 last year right after and wanted to wait for another deal when had the cash.
The $599.99 deal is back on Ebay for the Duromax XP10000EH genset. Not $500, which bummed me out, but I am not chancing it! I haven't seen it drop since a few months back. There have been a few decent deals, and even a "tax free" week here in Florida to prep. Of course, no retailer deals came close during that time.
This is not going to be a Honda or hell, even a Hyundai generator (yes Hyundai makes generators!) It is the cheap Chinese motor and parts, etc etc etc.
But. This is significantly cheaper than anything else at it's power rating. It's a hybrid fuel system. It has a TON of ports and features, including low -oil protection, idle control (for fuel saving), low noise exhaust and motor mounts, and comes with a battery and wheel kit. You really can't beat it for something cheap and in a pinch. I hope it helps someone else out. I needed something to run my AC, and can't afford a name-brand that high in wattage at this time.
