Sportsman Gasoline 4000W Portable Generator:
I purchased this generator last wk 4/23/18 and tested it the wknd of 4/28/18. It fired up with 1 pull, and subsequent tests it fired up on either the first pull or second pull.I was unfortunate (or fortunate) enough to lose power already on the wknd of 5/4/18. Around 4pm our power was lost due to a bad wind storm. I was excited to see how well the generator would perform. I set the generator about 25 ft from my house, then proceeded to run a 12 guage 15 am 1875 watt capable 100' extension cord. I went with a heavy guage because I wanted the generator as far away from my house as possible, while maintaining the ability to run my fridge and several other items at the same time to a power strip connected on the other end.I started the generator with 1 pull, I ran my fridge which is 19 cu ft unit, as well as a charger for my power tools, and my coffee machine on it without issue. The generator never struggled and it was running for 27 hrs straight. I did have to refuel in that time which is to be expected and the generator turned over easily again.For $250 I was impressed. The generator isn't the most quiet in its class but its not insanely loud either. 25 ft from the house with the windows closed and my boys slept without issue. Their windows are in the back of house and they would hear the generator most. If you are on a budget I would highly recommend.
