Wayfair.com is currently selling the Sportsman 3500-Watt Gasoline Powered Digital Inverter Generator for $160. The product page states that the generator is on sale for $799.
YOU MUST ADD IT TO YOUR CART
- then price will drop to $160
Shipping is free. This is likely a price mistake since even at it's lowest price at Home Depot it was $599 a while back. I placed 2 orders, received confirmations and my orders already shipped (see attached photo).
I bought this same generator from a masonry contractor who went out of business last year for $335. It was in near-new condition. I've run it several times and it's a decent generator especially for the price paid. It has 4 wheels so wheeling it around is a breeze, and one of the wheels has a wheel lock. It weighs ~ 80 lbs so while portable it's not meant to be carried around. Any adult male can lift it easily. Draining oil is easy with the plastic shelf that flows the oil away from the unit and into your pan. I can confirm the run times stated in the product specs. It's obviously no Honda, however their customer service is good. I broke the wheel stop on one of the wheels and customer service was responsive in sending me a new wheel.
Who am I kidding here, no one cares about all of that. It's $160 and only $60 more than a Harbor Freight 2 stroke generator haha!
