Hey guys, my husband has been looking into the 3500w Predator from Harbor Freight. I was going to get it for him BF, but saw this. My question is the 100w of power difference. What exactly will be lost if I pull the trigger on this one? I'm leaning heavily towards this one, but idk anything abt generators. This will be used mostly for running a camper when dry camping.
Many better options on the Champion: Duel Fuel (Propane), 3 year warranty (vs 2), you will find that this same unit at Cabellas and one other chain is advertised as 3500 but it is the exact same unit, with this sale price the Champion is actually less expensive. It's a no brainer. Only feature that I wish it had was an hour meter, but if you husband is a little handy he can add one for less than $20.

The more specific answer is the the cheaper units are loud and will annoy everyone around you. The benefit to the inverter is that it's quiet and hardly noticeable when running in comparison.
Main reason for me is the power is clean enough to run sensitive electronics. The other items you mentioned are also a plus.

If I am wanting to surprise my husband with a generator for Christmas, would this be a good one in the following scenario? Largish home loses power for 4 days and we're all electric. While we don't need to run the entire home, keeping the lower level warm enough for the kids with a couple of space heaters and keeping 2 standup fridges and a freezer going, is our goal. We have plenty of wood and propane tanks and sometimes a few tanks of gas around for the lawn mower. Is this sufficient for that? Thanks!
In this units manual it says "Use the following formula to convert voltage and amperage to watts: Volts x Amps = Watts"

With $184 more, this Champion unit gives you a peace of mind and ease of use on the propane side. For gas generator, the unit may not start the next time around. I'm pretty happy about this purchased. Good luck.

doesn't look like any 220 output huh? Too bad. I could really use that to power a couple circuits in the house when the power is out.
If you have a generator inlet and an interlock switch you can get yourself one of these:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0050PQ0UO?tag=slickdeals&ascsubtag=524a5880e8e411e8ae99aeddf16080... [amazon.com]

It connects the two hot legs together so you can power both sides of the panel. You won't be able to run any 220v appliances so you'll have to kick those breakers off but you could run lights, refrigerators, etc with it.

With two of these and parallel kit, do the specs exactly double? 6800 starting Watts and 6200 running?

People talk about the inverter types for clean power for electronics. I have a 7000 propane non inverter that I use for well pump, fridge and tv's with no problems so far. What items require an inverter?

The signal just has a lower noise spec. Probably doesn't affect too many modern devices.

The big advantage of these is the low noise because they dont need to spin at full rpm all the time.

You could always put a Cyberpower UPS into your generator to clean up the power to any sensitive devices like computers

First, it is better for all electronically driven devices to have the closest to sinusoidal wave shape of electrical current. The better the wave shape the less chances your electronics will fail! Inverters are very close to perfect wave shape soemtimes to 95% accurate. Conventional are not so good at it. With some low quality generator your cell phone charger powered from it will not charge the phone! Second, inverter uses more flexible power modes which depend on your current load. The less power you use from generator, the less and less fuel you going to use. For conventional generator idle is very bad for generator part, basically you need to keep it loaded at least 50% most of the working cycle. Inverter is very flexible and ok to run unloaded.

The Pulsar 4000W seems to be a better deal with more wattage and remote start. The only advantage of this one is the Propane option and slightly less noisy.

Not sure which to pick up but I would want more watts
where do you see this deal?
