Only knock that I can think of now is that it's not an inverter, which means it's noisier and the power produced is not as clean...

I need something that will run my refrigerator, a small air conditioning unit or a small space heater, and potentially a deep freezer. It would also be nice to run my wireless router modem and maybe a television.



This should be more than enough right?
Since this doesn't have an inverter, it could damage the sensitive electronics. If you want one for the electronics, it would be better to get one with a built in inverter.

I hear this a lot. Never once actually seen it. I've been running a crappy THD (dirty power) generator(s) for years. Never had a single loss of "sensitive electronics". Ran my LCD TVs and computers all the time with no issues. Some outages lasted weeks. Just my experience and never let your generator run out of fuel while powering your stuff.

If it bothers you that much just run your "sensitive electronic" on a low cost UPS. I'd bet that UPS could be more sensitive to dirty power than your "sensitive electronics"

Made in China. Tempting though. The rep seems very responsive to questions on Amazon

Exactly. Don't use this for electronics that you care about.

Costco has a more powerful and more expensive one that I bought but it can work out of the box on NG. Firman Tri-fuel.
I bought the fireman 9500w when they had a deal on it. Good trifuel so far but loud!

I'd wait for the Duromax 4800w one for $250 or 10kw one for $500. I've had both and they've been great (albeit slightly overrated on LP).

Yes, my generator is 5,000 watts and I ran a big deep freezer, a refrigerator, a 9,000 btu air conditioner and a couple of fans and a 60" tv and some led lights all at the same time and in 90° weather for a week straight and never blew a breaker on it. I would unplug the refrigerator sometimes to plug in my gas water heater for showers so you should have no problem running your normal heater if it is natural gas and you just need to run the blower and exhaust fan. I have been shopping for a bigger generator to backfeed my house with and they all loose watts when ran from natural gas or propane.

Actually, my furnace won't run on "dirty power" and neither will my UPS.

They also lose power with altitude. Before camping I checked out a Champion with different appliances at home, approximately sea-level, all OK. Once in the mountains @ 6000', same appliances no workee. Just a warning...

My furnace also did not run on my generator until I fixed a grounding issue. My problem was not the generator THD but grounding. It has some sort of flame sensor that was looking for the proper grounding. Runs just fine now.

Pulsar is a pretty well-known manufacturer and they also private label generators for other brands.

Also, LPG will derate the power output by about 10%.

Do you mean the whole furnace or the blower? A furnace is really just a couple blowers/motors and a transformer. Really basic electronics.

I have a couple UPSs that are wigged out by my generator too, and it's rated at "<5% THD". Some of the (especially cheaper) generators you see have absolutely horrid THD - the Duromax ones you'll see that are really attractive (e.g. high kW for the price) are labeled "<13%" and Duromax [duromaxpower.com]says typically 10-12%.

We were without power for Isaias for 7 days and I really noticed the generator being unhappy particularly with our well pump (240V) - the pump would kick on and the UPSs all around the house would beep - I even had one that wouldn't run at ALL (kept cycling output power) even though the battery was fully charged. I was tempted to bring a PQA home to analyze the power (e.g. actually measure the THD) but never got around to it.

The whole issue of bonded vs. unbonded generators is interesting, actually; some manufacturers will have instructions on how to bond/unbond the gen (just a jumper between N and G in the generator) but the usual issue will be GFCI's not liking the stray currents that a bonded generator can cause, but really this only amounts to the fact that you only want the ground and neutral bonded at a single location in the house.
