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 Champion Power Equipment 75531i Inverter Generator is another trademark black and yellow, gas powered generator for the average homeowner, camper or RV user that offers an 3100W maximum output for a powerful performance, apparently powerful enough for the most energy-hungry white goods and air conditioning units.
There are lots of promises with this machine as it claims to be portable, quiet and economical but how well does it live up to these promises and are buyers impressed with what they receive?
The name DuroMax may not always spring to mind first but the DuroMax XP10000EH 18HP Dual Fuel Propane/Gas Powered Portable Electric Start Generator is an interesting product with its proposed power, numerous outlets and all the necessary switches and meters on the control panel.
With all these elements, LEDs and writing all over the side, this electric start generator probably looks more complicated than it actually is. Are buyers happy with the power and performance of this machine or is it lacking something?
With dimensions of 31.5x22x22.5 inches and a weight of 235lbs, it is instantly clear that the black and yellow Champion Power Equipment 71531 CARB Compliant Dual Fuel Portable Generator is a beast of a generator and there are high hopes for its worth during a blackout.
This dual-fuel model (either propane or gasoline) has a strong cast-iron sleeve and a 439cc champion engine rating at 7500W so it should be able to handle the tougher jobs. Is this the case or has it fallen short?
There are many interesting claims attached to the Champion Power Equipment 73536i 2,000 Watt 4-Stroke Gas Powered Portable Inverter Generator that make it an appealing option for buyers, from the simple claim that it will be quiet at just 53Dba to other user-friendly factors like the simple portability and low energy consumption via the idle mode.
The name Champion means that this bright yellow and black box automatically appeals to keen buyers looking for the ideal generator for their cabin, camp site or RV – all of which are mentioned in the sales promises – but does it deliver?
The specification for the Champion Power Equipment 42436 1500-Watt Portable Generator makes it sound like quite a tough model that should be able to handle most job,s with its rating of 1200 watts, Champion 80cc OHV Engine and cast iron frame, and the claim that it can run for 10 hours on a full tank is quite impressive too. Apparently this machine can provide users with “portable, quiet” power” in a number of different scenarios but it is up to the job?
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?

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?
