Guys and gals..

I was in need of a generator and through some friends found a local warehouse in Newark, NY that has the Champion brand that costco sells. This place is the refurb center, any bought generator from costco and whoever carries it that is returned for whatever reason cannot be put on the shelf so it gets shipped to these guys.

When i say they had hundreds, if not couple thousand generators of all sizes in this place, very clean and organized warehouse. The guy told me they ship all over the World, not just US. These are "refurbished" That could mean few parts changed and all is well or it could be brand new in the box but still needs to be opened up and tested. I got 2, one had zero hours and other had 9 hours on it.

I got this dual fuel one for $499 + tax,

This same one is $799 at costco new.

I am NOT affiliated with these guys, they are 50 minutes away from me. Just hoping i can save some people money.

No that is a very good question because why buy a wrong size? Here is a watt calculator by Honda [honda.com] and one by generac [generac.com]. Also keep in mind the wattage listed on most generators is the peak wattage not the continuous wattage you want to run it as. Good luck.

Mmmm. My little 2000 watt sportsman blew white smoke after running for about 3 minutes (immediately turned it off) when I started it up for the first time in a month. Oil was fine when I started it. Gave it a good break in too, ran it, changed the oil, ran it again, checked the oil.

Fun times!

Depends on what you want to run. There are Websites that give you info. Try Googling for your answer.

There are plenty of wattage calculators on the internet.

I have a generator that runs 1500W and 2000W peak. I can run my two fridges, or my main fridge and two chest freezers. If I want to run an electric heater, I blew past peak any time I ran the heater and fridge whenever the fridge kicked on.
Just have to determine what you nerd, which others have linked you to for help. If you're going to connect to your box, I would imagine you would want 4500W running/5400W peak. I'm ok with running cords the few times we lose power.

The 4000w with the lpg is a great deal at 270. I am assuming it's just like the duromax from ebay that was 299. But after sales tax it's about the same price maybe a few dollars cheaper. I just bought the duromax I put it together but haven't put the oil on and started it up yet.

Is a dual fuel generator quieter if using propane vs gasoline?

I've been seeing those expensive huge battery packs for charging things like quadcopter batteries and other electronics out in the field.

Any opinions on how these would compare? I know a lot of what was discussed was how 'clean' the power produced was (for sensitive electronics; sine wave and what not), and I'm pretty sure these wouldn't be by themselves.

But, say a very small generator and some sort of surge protector type deal; anyone have experience with that, and whether it would be worth it compared to one of those big battery packs?

Depending on the PFC in the power supply it might even refuse to charge the battery given dirty power. Pure sine wave generators are best for what you are describing.

We were without power for 6 days after the windstorm this month in the Detroit area. Some people went for over a week. Never again! I borrowed my first generator and I need one of my own. In For One of the 7000W gas model. Great deal, thanks guys.
