On average, depending on their size, home refrigerators need around 1000-2000 starting watts. The generator that can deliver at least 2000 starting watts will be sufficient to run both the refrigerator and the freezer without problems.

This is not parallel capable, so, no.

No. It's either free in-store pickup or you pay their standard delivery fees.

Yes. As far as inverter / generator engine noise, these are as quiet as they get.

Apr 11, 2020 youtube review (1:17) shows it was 149 dollars one year ago.
Yes, that's what I paid a year ago ($149) when it was on sale at Walmart.

Quote from Accster :
Somehow I had missed the oil part of your first post.
But you're not a moron and 'bentrinh' is correct.
It's a common problem with these units due to both a design flaw in the fill line AND the manufacturer printing the manual to say "Add xx ounces of oil (I recall it was about 3 ounces too much), while later adding a yellow tag to say add a lesser amount than what the manual states.My unit isn't right here, but I believe the difference was like 11 ounces vs a corrected 8 ounces. Those numbers are by memory, so they may be off a tad, but that little bit of excess oil made the problem fairly common.


I also wouldn't be surprised if different designed parts/modules were put on the same model generator, at different times.
I ran my tests with both a "Kill-a-Watt" unit (just to also test the Kill-a-Watt unit and see how accurate it was), as compared to a Fluke meter that I knew I could rely on for accurate load readings. Surprisingly, the Kill-a-Watt was only a little off from the Fluke meter. Almost negligible.
But in all tests, my unit could not break the 685 watt 'barrier' and that was with steady/stable resistive loads. Inductive-type loads (pumps, motors, fridge compressors, etc.) would create non-stable startup & load variances that wouldn't be anywhere as accurate, so I didn't even 'go there'.
I ran all tests with 'eco-mode' OFF.

I still find it hard to believe you got anywhere near 1,000 watts out of your unit. Was that tested with a quality/accurate meter? Anyhow, if you did get that, I consider it a very rare 'golden egg'.
We also ran it with a killawatt. Our unit was purchased last year and is the parallel capable and CARB model. Perhaps the parallel version runs a better inverter?

I have this and it's fantastic. So quiet, sips fuel, and powers things with relative ease. It can run my refrigerator and all my telecom equipment, though my most common use case is to take it around my property to power things like a 120w soldering iron or 3x ryobi battery chargers when I'm doing something really battery intensive like cutting wood.

This would be perfect for an RV to charge the batteries when off grid without firing up the screaming loud built-in generator.

Although I think it can occasionally be had around the $150 price point.

Quote from madmax718 :
Depends on your sump. Many will run. If your situation is contingent on a pump running you should be running a battery backup sump in conjunction with your regular pump. This unit should work with both.
Maybe a 1/3 hp or 1/6 hp pump, but definitely not a 1hp pump. The startup surge on my 1hp is about 1500w.

What happens if you buy two of these? Can you get 2000 W out of them?
Getting the 1800/2200W model is about double the cost of this one anyway. And you can then further parallel with another inverter generator when you need more power. This small inverter generator without parallel capability has very limited function.

Good info. I'd pay even more for such capabilities. The convenience of having one 2000w unit instead of two is worth it alone.

Figured someone can use this 10% off one time use code. Brings the inverter down to $153 before tax. (Wished I got this before but I already bought this a few weeks back) I can use some Rep in exchange. Please reply on comment once used. Thanks.

Depends. You can put a bigger start cap on some.

You can boot leg a parallel kit. It works.

thanks, but it's an invalid code, can someone PM me a valid code, thanks!

Promotion code "T3LE106ZVR5DKWG" is invalid.

These have been cheaper in the past for sure, they are great if you're remote camping and need to charge your phone or laptop or even provide some lighting.

If you're in a power out situation at home this will most likely run a single refridgerator or a freezer but not both and you can't use a long extension cord. It will run a box fan, coffee maker, and a standard 60w lamp with a 10' extension and a 3 oultet adapter at the same time without issue.

This thing is a TANK. I abused mine with dirty oil, sit year long gas and dust water cover the unit. Not the mention I have cracked the side wall and beat them to death. The generator still lives. Jesus.

Its not that weak. I use mine power a retro saw. Abuse it for years and no oil change. Old gas. It survive
