Samsclub is having a cyber monday sale on a 1000 watt inverter generator, and it is LIVE NOW at $158 and free shipping. If you're not a sams club member, you can still buy it, but at $173.

Regular price for this generator seems to be around $350 (current price at Home Depot).

Link: http://www.samsclub.com/sams/1000...80&veh=sem

I do not have any experience with the Sportsman brand, but their specs look solid, and @ 56db too.

Specifications
  • 1,000 peak surge watts / 800 rated running watts
  • Run time: 6.3 hours at 50% load
  • Two 120V AC outlets (specs say two, but pics and reviews say one)
  • One 12V DC outlet
  • Low oil shutdown
  • Oil capacity: 30 oz., SAE 10W30
  • 0.55-gallon fuel tank
  • Uses unleaded gasoline
  • 1.3 HP, 5,000 RPM, 40cc, 4-stroke
  • Recoil start
  • Noise level: 56 db with no load
  • EPA- and CARB-approved

Finally, please be nice, as this is my first SD post. Any tips appreciated!

Not a bad deal not sure about the reliability. If you want something similar that makes zero sound I reccomened my redneck generator. Get a 1000w power inverter, deep cycle marine battery, and a battery charger. You can price out the set yourself I reccomened looking at advance auto for the battery and using one of their coupons. I use this setup to tailgate at the giants games its amazing how well it works. Just made some Pina coldas with a 550w blender at the last home game. I also power a 32in TV and antenna for over 5 hours no problem. Probably could go all night.

This is a 4 cycle, has 2 speeds based on load, and uses an inverter. The item in your youtube links is the $90 cheapy 2-cycle generator that runs at 1 speed and uses gas/oil mix.

right you seemed to be the one who thought they were directly comparable for the same usage scenario.

Its 2 different setups for 2 different types of use.

I have a solar setup at my woods cabin. Works fine to keep the battery(s) charged up.

This works great when you are painting an outbuilding 700ft from electric.
or tailgating.. or quite a few other scenarios that dont work well with solar.


Arent most those camping sites usually available with electric anyway?
PS the person losing the argument is usually the one throwing out the personal insults.

I have the earthquake 800 - pretty much same thing. Run it all weekend for ice fishing below zero. Only issue I have had is I broke the pull rope. It'll eventually wear out in the spot where you pull...replaced with paracord and haven't looked back.

The web page for the deal doesn't answer two questions I have...(1) What are the specific dimensions of the produce (height, width, etc.)? (2) Have you noticed an issues with fumes and/or smells coming from the product either when running or when stored? I'm chemically sensitive.

TIA for any insight.

I am not at home but I would guess 12-15" tall and 6-8" wide? That's a wild guess. It's pretty light actually. I haven't noticed any smells except when it's choked it will smoke a little (hence choked) but running or sitting I don't think it smells.

Looks like a great deal, I have the Harbor Freight style small 1000w but I may buy this and sell that off. Clean power on this one.

Trying to see the use for this. In my RV everything runs on batteries except the microwave and AC. This generator isn't powerful enough to run either. All I could do with it is use it to recharge the trailers batteries, which is what solar does. Solar requires no maintenance, fuel, oil change, etc... Also costs about the same.
I've used 800-1000 watt generators before RV'ing some. We used our generator for the following:
  • Running an oil heater on low (600watt)
  • Running a 10-15amp battery charger
  • Charging our electric scooters/bikes
  • Running box fans or swamp coolers
  • Lights and sound equipment
  • Run a 2 cubic foot refrigerator
Of course we didn't do all of this at once, but that's what we used it for. We've since upgraded to a 2000watt generator and it does great. We also can run our 5 gallon perculator and 6000BTU AC from the 2000watt unit. But I am picking up one of these as a backup to run everything but the AC and perculator incase the big one goes out. This is our "roughing it" generator. Smilie

Thanks.

I just bought one.

Does this use regular gas, like the one we put into our cars? Sorry for the question, I never had a generator before.

Oh, don't forget if you shop thru the discover link and use your discover card, you can get 5%+5% cash back to your discover card.

search the earthquake 800 on amazon, rated high. parts should be same if needed. looks like lots of the same generator different brands. I've had mine for 2+ years. start it occasionally to keep everything fresh.

Yes. But with any small engine try and use ethanol free fuel. Lots of times it's the 91 octane option. The Pump would openly state this at the station.
