Copy-Pasted from the internet, so I'm not vouching for its perfect accuracy, but here it is:

So, based on the above, 23% seems like way too much for what I would need it for, at least.
Heads up, THD rated at ≤23% - this is more of a worksite generator
Very good idea to buy this for us Texans.

In Feb 2021, we were the most popular house on the block thanks to our generator. We were providing internet to anyone who wanted to walk past, a warm garage with hot chocolate, board games, Nintendo switch, and a TV.

Has the ability to start automatically upon utility power failure with the accessory ST switch. Lowest price ever if I'm not mistaken. Sadly not the dual fuel LP propane version which is sold out everywhere I've looked in CA. Lowes is no longer carrying it. Walmart 3rd party only $1180. Technically possible to convert but not cost effective.

Great deal if I wasn't looking exclusively for dual fuel and preferably 50amp. Thumbs up though for the find!

When a hurricane has come through, the whole neighborhood sounds like this. Not a big deal honestly.

Quote from dbabo :
Whats THD?
Copy-Pasted from the internet, so I'm not vouching for its perfect accuracy, but here it is:
Quote :
Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) is the stated measurement related to the quality of electricity. The amount of THD will influence how your equipment may respond or perform.
When power quality is discussed, you will hear terms like "clean electricity" and sine wave power. What these refer to is the lower harmonic distortion of the electrical AC wave and the ability to take square wave generated electrical power and smooth the edges to produce a phase that is smoother and less square.
"Clean electricity" is considered good with a THD of less than 6% and often stated or promoted at 5% or less.
For units that measure greater than 6% THD the electrical wave can cause sensitive electrical circuits such as computers or other minor electronics, to lose life. These components may malfunction or operate improperly.
It is common for standard generators to be in the 9% range and some to produce THD as much as 15%.
At over 5% THD you can run heating elements and the vast majority of non-sensitive appliances. The issue you run into is that TV's may see lines through the picture or noise in the speaker of your radio. Other controllers may not operate properly. You may even get flickering in your lights although most lights can easily handle this amount of distortion.
Generally speaking you can run necessities such as appliances or tools without issue. But if you need to rely on more sensitive equipment you'll be looking to more expensive standby type generators or inverter power generators.
So, based on the above, 23% seems like way too much for what I would need it for, at least.

This puts out some dirty power. I personally wouldn't run valuable electronics off it.

I bought the Costco tri fuel generator 2 years ago when it was on sale for 600. It's considered a "dirty generator" as well, but it runs my whole house fine (I use Natural gas to power it)... that being said, I do have the computers and my TV each connected to a battery UPS. So I don't know if the automatic voltage regulation in those UPS units is helping...
