I waited a long time to pull the plug and purchase this machine. I considered many cheaper alternatives but it came down to doing the right thing.
It is dependable, great on gas quiet and light. I have a larger cheap unit and if we get another extended outage, the gas usage is the factor. This will run my furnace, fridge and a few other things. That's all i really need. Also the other unit is way too loud and heavy. This I can keep in the house so it is not frozen when the power cuts out. I have a honda four wheeler, trash pump, SUV, lawn mower, power washer, and used to have their motorcycle. They are the best.
