I'm looking to buy my first generator and am not really sure what to look for other than an inverter type.

Is this one a better deal and worth the price difference?

Depending what u want to run on 2000 compared to 2500. The 2500 link one is a dual fuel will run on propane or gas.

Running watts is only 1700. Engine 79cc. The igen2500 is 2200 watts running, has a larger more powerful engine and digital information panel. Often $400 on sale.

That dual fuel is only 1665 running watts on propane. In power outages I find 2200 running watts to be the minimum for basic needs. If one can get by with 1700 running watts then the gasoline-only deal gen is a much better value. Regarding the claims always made in these threads that propane is better due to easier maintenance this is false. All of these gasoline inverters have a drain screw on the float bowl. When done using I drain the bowl, siphon out remaining fuel in the tank and let it air dry then store in the house with no fumes. Shutting the petcock off and running until the engine dies does not accomplish the same thing.

Have an older Champion 2000w inverter. If this has a similar carb, you need to drain the carb (there's a screw and a small tube) after use. Even running it until it stalls leaves enough in the bottom of the carb to clog the tiny intake.

They just had an excellent deal on a wen 3800/3400 watt inverter (Wen 56380i) for $519 the other day. Can still pick it up for $600 on Amazon. Very highly rated inverter generator. I too was looking for my first living in Florida and now have a 14 month old, can't risk being without one for the storm season so i pulled the trigger. Depends on how much you need to run. Would still recommend checking it out if you needed more juice as it's still a good price for what you're getting.

You only need an inverter generator if you're planning to run modern appliances or electronics on it. Classic non-inverter generators provide more power for less cost and have fewer points of failure, so are as good or better in most cases.

Either way I'd recommend a dual-fuel or propane generator over a gas model. Propane produces a little less power, but makes everything else about owning/operating a generator orders of magnitude easier and cleaner.

Edit: Yes, the one you linked is a very good option for light loads and probably worth the price difference for a first generator. Champion is an excellent brand with great build quality, being able to run it on propane will keep it running for a while, and it will be very quiet. It's not quite as good a deal, but it's a better generator.

Only 1900 running watts. 39lbs . 79cc. Here are the specs for the igen2500. I have purchased over a dozen in the past year. https://westinghouseoutdoorpower....-generator.

If you need to purchase today and can get by with 1700 running watts then buying this deal on the Champion is a good value. If you can wait then there is a good chance that the igen2500 $400 deal will return because there is a new model ige2500(c) with a CO sensor. Government is pushing to require CO. I don't agree and don't want the hassle of shutdowns and not starting due to the sensor. CO alarms should be used in the home. In conjunction with proper placement and use these of the generator CO sensing generators are not needed.

39lb vs 48 lb: I'm not sure how these new 39 pound ultra-light inverters are achieving the claimed output or how long that output can be sustained especially in warm weather. More weight means more mass for heat dissipation.

79cc vs 98cc: The igen2500's 98cc is much preferred to the 79cc because it has more torque to handle surge better and with less voltage sag and fluctuation. This is perhaps more important than THD.

Dual Fuel: I use dual fuel in 5500 watt and larger 240 volt generators. On a small inverter it doesn't make sense. Loss of both power and portability.

LP runs cleaner internet hoax: The alleged ease of maintenance argument is false. Pull the clear plastic straw-like hose out and twist the float bowl screw to drain. Drain or siphon the 1/2 gal of fuel from the tank and you are done, ready to store indoors indefinitely. No fuel stabilizer required or recommended.

LP has zero lubricity. It causes engines to wear out faster.

Fuel savings with inverter: With few exceptions most will be happier with an inverter design. Big fuel savings. Quieter. Far more portable. Easy to store indoors which greatly extends service life and reduces maintenance issues. Buy a conventional for backup power only if you intend to wire it to your house panel or if you have essential 240V loads or a well pump. The cost to operate @ $6 per gallon or more will break the bank. If you need more AC due to a hot humid climate than an interverter can handle then you need a large conventional. Otherwise one or two igen2500's plus one 5500 watt conventional running intermittantly can satisfy most rural homes with a well pump.

I live in a rural area prone to extended power outages. I purchase igen2500's for friends and neighbors. Champion has a great reputation and I would like to try them but they are always more costly per watt than Westinghouse is on sale. If needed today this Champion seems fairly priced if the user can get by with 1700 running watts.

What are some typical use cases or modern appliances that this generator can support? I live the suburbs. During the summer, there could be some temporary 8 hour electricity outages. I assume this could power a fan.

LP engines always outlast gasoline engines. LP doesn't have the crap that gasoline has that eats away your engine's internals, that is why gas engines need often oil changes, from the crap deposited in the oil from gasoline's combustion byproducts. LP doesn't have these issues. Plus, gas is a fantastic solvent and strips the walls of cylinder bores when choked in the winter or due to poorly maintained carbs. LP is already a vapor, it never enters an engine cylinder as a liquid solvent.
