Good generator?


Unless you had knowledge of generators, why would you ever buy a generator off EBay?

Because I need one, and don't know of anywhere to get it locally? A new generator off eBay seems to be safer than getting one used off craigslist, especially since I wouldn't know what to look for when buying a used one.

Do you know what to look for in a new one? You haven't posted location, planned usage, load calculation...

What are you running? A neighborhood? You can power seven houses with that.
