The Powermate PM0601250 Gas Powered Portable Generator With Electric Start has an 8 gallon gas tank, a 22 HP Subaru V-Twin OHV gas engine that is said to offer 12,500 Running Watts and can apparently run for up to 6 hours at a 50% load. The makers claims that it is “ideal for home backup and jobsite power” but this is basic requirement really in this age of blackouts and extreme weather: can it go beyond this to provide something really impressive?
The Westinghouse WH5500 Portable Generator is a tough-looking example that sounds more than capable of reliable aid from its basic specification. This 4-stroke, gas-powered generator has a 357cc overhead valve engine, 6.6-gallon tank , four 120v twist outlets and one 120/240v, as well as other features for safety and convenience like the strong “never-flat” tyres and handle.
Many consumers place their trust in the Westinghouse name and there are lots of preconceptions about the quality of the product but are expectations too high?
On first impressions, the Champion Power Equipment 46533 4,000 Watt 196cc 4-Stroke Gas Powered Portable Generator seems like a tough, powerful and reliable generator because its specification includes a Champion 196cc OHV engine with cast iron sleeve, durable frame, 120V outlet and overload protection as well as convenient extras like the low oil sensor and voltmeter.
Champion call this 4000W machine a source of “dependable, portable power for your home, campsite or jobsite” but how true is this claim?
The basic features of the Generac 5735 GP17500E Portable Generator are fairly standard, it is gas powered with a 17500 watt Gererac OHVI engine, it can provide 120V and it has an electric start and tough outer casing, all with the basic aim of providing plenty of power for multiple appliences in a crisis.
Beyond this, the Generac GP17500E model offers a number of more unusual extras like full pressure lubrication, specially-considered easy access controls, a low-oil level shutdown feature and even maintenance reminders to keep it in a good condition. There seem to be plenty of interesting features included in this product with the function of making life easier for the user: do they all serve a purpose or are buyers disappointed?
Generators are something that many of us hope to never need, although many everyday people are becoming more knowledgeable about them due to the rise in blackouts and storms, and the Westinghouse WH7500E Portable Generator has attracted a lot of interest from consumers comparing their different options.
This 4-stroke, 420cc overhead valve engine is appealing with its use of both electric and manual starts, 7500 running watts, 6900 starting watts, multiple120v outlets and 120/240v twist outlet. How does this model compare to other brands and is it a worthwhile purchase?
The Champion Power Equipment 41135 6,800 Watt 338cc 4-Stroke Gas Powered Portable Generator is advertised as providing “dependable, portable power for your home or jobsite” and it certainly appeals to many consumers with its Champion 338cc OHV engine, 6800 watts maximum output and features like the low oil sensor and voltmeter.
Many of these devices were bought after Sandy as a precautionary measure and have not yet had the full run through; however, what feedback does exist with this Champion gas-powered generator tells prospective buyers a lot about what they can expect.
A portable, gas powered generator has become more of a necessity in recent years and this increased demand has led to the design of the Westinghouse WH6500E Portable Generator.
This power generator is said to provide 13 hours of run time at just a 50 percent load thanks to its 4-stroke, 420cc overhead valve engine and it also boasts full protection against the elements, wheels, handles, oil, funnel, and a tool kit. It sounds like Westinghouse have thought of everything and produced an impressive device but is this really the case?
