been this price for a few weeks. but i picked up the one with a 230 plug
worked well so far. suggest getting a magnet dip stick and changing oil before the first 5 hrs of runtime. i changed it at 4 and it was already pretty dirty.

Hi, by the one with 230 you mean the cheaper one with 4500W surge?
I would like to get a generator that I could just connect extension cords too or connect to a transfer switch so it can powered that way.

i got this one 2 weeks ago for $413 which was normal price the last couple months. id been watching generators for a while. looks like amazon is out atm and the other sellers jacked up the price.

The WEN DF475T Dual Fuel 120V/240V appears to be discontinued. It was well priced for a 240V generator with a L14 30R outlet that makes it transfer switch ready for house connection. The electric start and duel fuel are icing. There are a few other duel fuel 4k-6k similarly priced but pull start. I suggest pp consider those even if they do not have electric start.

Installing the house L14 30R inlet typically is an afterthought. I strongly suggest completing this as a first step. There are many ways to accomplish the home interface. One of the easiest and least expensive ways is to do it right at the meter. Almost any homeowner can install the transfer switch and the inlet socket. The charge for an electrician to move the house feed wire from the meter box to the transfer switch should be minimal. Then all he needs to do is reconnect the meter outlet ( utility power ) to the transfer switch. Done.

The other way to do it is at the house breaker panel. But if the panel is inside one still needs to run the gen cable outside through the wall.

I ended up getting the Predator 3500 today with the Inside Track 20% off, and the ESP. I plan to get the natural gas conversion kit.

Rep'f for the 20%OFF tip. You found it in a store? Not good for online. None in my store.Today is the last day.

I'm sure you checked out the other options such as iGen4500 and Wen i400. Mind sharing on how you narrowed it down to the Predator?

I also bought this. It seems like the best value for an inverter generator.

I've been eying this one as well. Having just survived the Texas snowstorms this seems like cheap insurance for the future. 4000w would be plenty for me, and space is an issue, so this one would be great. Do I need to drain it every time after use?

It's the smart thing to do. Not too hard on this model. Shut off the fuel valve and let it run until it dies out. Check out page 22.

Thank you! That's really easy, I thought you had to physically drain it. Thanks again.
