Bought this exact same generator back in 2018 from an Amazon sale for $296.99.

Kept it in the box in the basement for two years, until recently two weeks ago there was bad storm that came through the area and knocked out the power in some areas. My inlaws lost power. Took it out of the box, added oil and gas, and it started on the first pull. My inlaws only used it for two nights, until their power was restored. They only used it for lights and fans. Nothing with large appliances like a fridge.

Because of this, I decided to buy a larger generator. I got a Firman dual fuel 2900W/3200W Inverter [firmanpowerequipment.com] from Costco for $599.

Yes, but no...run it outside, cord through window/door to inside.

Just curious why you didn't use it with appliances? I have a Honda 2000W inverter genny(open box $400) that handles a fridge and freezer without issue. Start up for those should be well within range, just don't plug them in at the same time and you're good. Even ran them while on Eco mode without a hitch.

It's not that I didn't want to. I just stated that my in-laws used it for two days, only for lights and fans. They didn't use it to run the fridge or AC.

Great buy on that Honda for $400!!!

OK, I thought you bought the larger one because of appliances. Yeah, the $400 open box was an Amazon gamble back with VIPOUTLET still sold through their marketplace. I expected it to be used/beat up, but it was brand new in the box and never had oil or gas in it.

I've bought a refurb gaming laptop from VIPOUTLET a few months ago. It looked brand new when I got it. They're definitely a good vendor.

Yep. Mostly customer returns from Walmart and Home Depot. Bought many, many great deals from them for years.

Got one. Now that I got it I probably would never need it but after spending 40 hours without power a week ago, I'd rather have a generator.

In case the other answers weren't clear enough, and in case you weren't trolling, NO.

Never run a generator indoors no matter how short a time or how small the generator. It shouldn't even be right outside the door/window. Get it at least 10ft away from any door/window/soffit vent/crawlspace vent. Do not run it in the garage unless it's detached.

Lots of people have died from CO poisoning from generators, even generators run in the garage with the door cracked to "ventilate". You and your kids will go to sleep and never wake up.

Same here, though I bought a bigger Champion 3100w model so I can keep some lights on and electronics in addition to the fridge and freezer.

These quiet ones are good to have for camping, tailgating, etc as well. More versatile than ye-old 5000w generator of your father.

How do you run the generators outside if you may have rain? Ie can you put them under a tent if that is safe or some other covering? I mean obviously you don't want a generator to get wet or have puddles around it...any ideas or do you need to monitor round the clock? (Meaning weathereise)
