The sine wave power delivers clean stable. Because of this I would not purchase this again especially with the higher price tag. We have used it several times already and are extremely pleased with the power it gives us, the sound level is rather low, it runs quite a while on one tank of gas, nearly 10 hours. I left them on for 5 minutes just to see if the unit would overload which it did not.
It is in the shop now getting repaired for something that should have been caught before it left the factory. Gas was 4 weeks old. There is however, no indicator for fuel, which means that there is no way of knowing when the generator is out of gas. The outage was supposed was last 8 hours but lasted 16 hours. Overall, this seems to be a great little unit so far. Calif we had many power outages and close calls to evacuate. The size of a generator's engine directly correlates to how much power it can produce.

The overall result Having a portable electronic generator at home is surely an essential tool. Portable generators are available in silent selections as well but these systems set you back more. A month ago we had a large storm and I was without power for 4 days. Received the 2200 several weeks ago and broke in to my standards. These generators generate rising and fall current that is all right for basic home appliances however not suitable for tools that need continuous secure power.
It is vital to recognize exactly how to choose a portable generator because it needs understanding some electric terminology like power level as well as voltage. . I also plan on using this for camping trips and tail gate parties. Please note: not all applications can be powered simultaneously.

Along with this we found this generator to be quite fuel efficient also, even though it is very powerful in running all the electronic devices effectively. As with other reviews, it would have been nice to have a fuel gauge. Attach the ground terminal green cable to each generator and tighten the ground screws securely. Two identical models can be paralleled with an optional cable for up to 4400 watts of power. You could even check engine oil every single time you want to use the generator. I have a larger cheap unit and if we get another extended outage, the gas usage is the factor. I thought the other units were quiet until I ran the Honda.
At 50lbs each they are easy to move around and store back home when complete. I hope there are no issues with these units but now i wonder. When our power went out, and rains were falling about 6 inches an hour, it worked perfectly to run a few lights, our sump pumps and wet vac as we kept water out of our basement.
