This is the Briggs and Stratton P4500 inverter generator which had an initial price of $1160 in home depot. It has a starting wattage of 4500 and runs at 3700 watts.

Engineered to be compact, lightweight and quiet, the new P 4500 inverter generator has a protective hard shell to safeguard the unit from dirt and debris, never-go-flat wheels and a telescoping handle to make moving it around an RV site a breeze. A convenient push-button electric start turns on the Briggs & Stratton 224 cc engine to deliver 4500 starting watts and 3700 running watts. Its multi-functional digital display panel allows operators to monitor power usage, fuel level and run time. 4 household 120-Volt outlets, one 120-Volt 30 Amp RV outlet and 2 USB adaptors offer the operator flexibility to power a combination of lights, kitchen appliances and smart devices. Innovative inverter technology automatically adjusts the engine speed to lower the noise level and reduce fuel consumption. The P 4500 also features Quiet Power Technology and is backed by a 3-year limited warranty.

Solid first Post, OP 👍

Thank you 👋👋

"carbon monoxide shutdown technology shuts down the generator when harmful levels of carbon monoxide are detected"

Should be mandated for all generators, IF it's reliable .... any other gens with this feature?

champion has CO shield

you may want to wait for Honda to update their eu220i with this

By the end of this year, all Honda portable generator models will feature the CO-MINDER™ carbon monoxide detection system.
actually honda already has it out https://powerequipment.honda.com/...-co-minder

afraid that some people may become complacent, and run this indoors (because they think the co device works). never run it indoors, need to be outside 20 feet away from home with exhaust pointing away

Thanks for your reply, Reps to you.

Agree/Correct: Folks don't think what the consequences are EVEN with an alarm.

Terrible that a family died of CO poisoning after Hurricane Laura.

20 ft? I got the HD cables for that, but 20 ft puts it into my neighbor's yard ..... hmmm 🤔

Terrible thought: I gas my neighbors, omg ..... smh 🥺

Could build a 20 ft tall stack with an gooseneck to limit rain geting in (?)

No GFCI. No remote start. No dual fuel. No 240. I'm actually not impressed at all at this price. Maybe at the height of hurricane season its an OK price but in general not impressed. The very recent westinghouse inverter deal was better. And a champion deal or two has been better recently too.

Generator prices have been fluctuating pretty widely due to it being hurricane and wildfire season. I've been tracking a Champion open frame inverter which has seen a $400 swing during just the past couple of weeks. I don't know how much this Briggs & Stratton model usually sells for but make sure you know what's a good price and don't be misled by the stated MSRP.

I'm interested in general because Briggs & Stratton make solid engines, but I've also seen a lot of cheap things attached to them. If it was in the 600 range I'd bite without knowing about this one in particular.
Thanks for the post op.

Honda is the only brand I trust for small motors. I've never looked into generators before but I'll never buy another lawn mower unless it's a Honda engine

Briggs recently filed for bankruptcy. Might want to be careful with this one.

You won't go wrong with buying a Honda but depending on your use case you may overpay. I bought a Toro push mower 7 years ago and despite treating it horribly it still starts and does the job.

Honda generators are a full degree of magnitude more expensive than competing brands...like literally, you can buy 2 or more of a comparable machine for the price of one Honda.

Since the hurricanes took out the power here for over a week a few weeks ago, I have been researching generator types and brands heavilly. If youre looking for 240v, you will need to go above 6000w (which makes sense as I cant remember a single 240v tool which is under 30 amps...maybe a small air conditioner?) You can always step up, but youll lose current.

Anyone recommend a efficient , low THD generator to power an appliance heater (combi boiler) fridge, chest freezer, and some lights? Occasionally may want to run a washing machine and (gas) dryer. I overloaded a 20 amp 120 plug from my neighbor's house during the last outage running those things, so I will obviously need past 2400 watts.

Here are my thoughts on getting more power. Instead of paying 10K for an entire house generator (after install and such) just get (2) inverters around 3500w each. Parallel them together and run a 50 amp cord to an outside receptacle on the house. Get an interlock kit for your house panel and you now can run whatever you pretty much want. In addition to that the inverters can go with you if you so choose to go camping or what not and if you sell the house you take them with you because they are portable. Just my 2 cents.

Is there a factory box or kit to parallel two generators? After not having electric for a week due to the derecho I am definitely am going to backfeed my house. I already have a 5,000 watt generator but it only has a 220v 20 amp outlet and a 125v 30 amp outlet and the normal 20 amp outlets. My central air unit requires 19 amps which is a little too close to the 220v 20 amp max of my generator. I also want to mention the model # 030743 of the standard generator listed that this one is listed as 60% quieter than, is actuality this same generator.
