I'm confused. In your last post you were asking how to fit your 300lb girlfriend in your Prius

this. he could be back feeding.

the alligator clips on the main lugs?

there's a proper generator kit for panel boxes that allow a lockout for this and you basically feed the power thru a double pole breaker.

if he's so rich and fabulous and super important (based on his story and 100lb gf etc.) why is he fooling with a bargain bin generator anyway?

Man, my 1600W running 2000W peak generator struggles with two fridges. So this would literally do one thing at a time. Quite a contraption to lug around, no? Other uses?

Wow 19lbs. However it's not big enough to run a toaster lol. I just wish it was a little more quiet. It's just as loud as the $1000 Honda 2000.

Ordered one of these last time around... Super quiet and really small, but then only 1k watts too.

I got this the last time it was at this price, and i would say its over rated. It was unable to run my fridge or a space heater that on low only pulls 750 watts.(measured with my watt meter). Not sure what the fridge surges at. So just be realistic. This genny will run ALL your lights, charge a few laptops run a tv or 2 etc. etc. but nothing else.
With that said it runs good idles smoothly and starts easily. in regards to volume i cant comment, for this is the only genny i have or have heard up close so i cant compare it to any others

It's only 20lbs, which is light enough for my 100lb girlfriend to take down from the back of my lifted Hummer. If she can do it, I don't see why even the smallest grown man couldn't handle it. I mean, most average guys who don't even work out could curl 20lbs 15-20 reps easily.

As far as other uses are concerned, how about this: it's not really purposed to run 2 full sized refrigerators, despite the fact that it could certainly do so if it's not 10+ years old. Current refrigerators only need 400-500W. I have this generator but it usually sits in one of my Hummers in case SHTF. I have used it for 1 day to run my house, however. It ran my entire house less refrigerator, less air conditioning. The method I used for this was:

1. open the breaker from my home circuit box to the main grid (just flip the switch)
2. plug in a modified extention cable to the generator (cut the socket end of the extension cable and attach heavy duty alligator clips)
3. connect the clips to the top of the electrical panel where power comes in
4. open the breaker for the fridge and air conditioning system (turn off the breaker switch)
5. start the generator

I ran my entire office on this generator for about 3 hours that day:
*FIOS ODM
* 3 wireless routers
* high end laptop
* 4 monitors
* logitech 2.1 speakers
* 7 LED can lights in my home office
* whatever hallway or kitchen/bath room lights I had to use while walking through the house (everything is automatic)

I work from home and couldn't be out of pocket that day so it was either drive up to Barnes and Nobles to work or let my generator stretch its legs. I chose the latter, and it worked perfectly fine.

This sounds cool, but just in case anyone doesn't know you HAVE to be sure that you're not feeding power back up to the utility pole from your breaker box. In other words be 100% sure that your house is disconnected from the main power.

The reason is that the transformer on your utility pole may work in both directions. So your 120v input goes to the transformer and gets transformed UP to a few thousand volts. And if the power is out, and your local power company has its guys out there working expecting for everything to be "dead" then they may touch a line with your generator's up-converted thousands of volts running through it, and they may wind up dead.

So there's the possible liability of killing utility workers to worry about, if you don't make 100% sure you're not feeding power up the lines.
