....Last sale was Black Friday 2019.

Great for power shut downs, or any power outages due to weather or down power lines.

This will be strong enough to power your refrigerator, WIFI, computers, lights, etc.
Make sure you calculate your power needed to make sure you are under the 2900W running power.

A friend just picked this one up and he says it is quiet for the size.

Can these generators be run inside? I typically wouldn't ever need a generator besides power outtage that happens once every 3 years.. I'm assuming it would be a waste..?

If you needed to ask this question, then there is no reason for you to ever own one.

* Never use a generator inside, even in an attached structure like a garage or barn.

* Place generators at least 15 feet from your house. Make sure you have a long enough extension cord that's in good condition.

* Point the exhaust away from your home and any windows, doors or vents.

No don't run it inside or closed environment. The exhaust is poisonous. Depends on circumstances, for me I have babies and live close to the coastal area which hurricane could affect the power line every year

As long as you wrap it tightly in foil thus negating any harmful exhaust compounds

Thoughts on getting a gasoline inverter generator vs a dual fuel non-inverter? Main potential use would be for PG&E inspired 3-4 day outages that are supposed to be 'normal' in the next few years here in Northern CA.

Been looking at this one.

It exists: https://www.costco.com/firman-290...81637.html

Probably not going to be on sale, though.
