I'm looking to get a new portable generator and a Honda was recommended. I would like a quality generator, but is it worth the huge additional cost? The first generator I looked at was a Generac 8000 watt/12000 starting watt, for $1299. The Honda EM6500S (6500 watt) lists for $2890 and I found a website where you could get them for $2430 with shipping. Should I get the Honda? Should I get it for list at the local Honda store or get it online? Thanks.
