Lucky me, I can walk into my local Farm & Fleet store and pick up the exact same make/model generator for $89.99 until May 4th…

Now back to reading (and possibly purchasing) other great deals that turn up at Woot from time to time.

Yes, apparently I can get it cheaper there by mail, since I live in WA home of Amazon I usually have to pay sales tax so I can get it shipped to me in Spokane for 100.82 from Farm and Fleet, I save vs. $113.24 from Woot!

Can’t seem to find one comment on the performance and reliability of this product.
Funny how every site I go to is out of stock, but no comments left at any of the 8 sites I found this product on. Seems kind of odd to me.

A few post up there was a link to the previous sale, which in turn had links to reviews. Also I have found this product in stock at sears, home depot, and Amazon when I searched via google.

More Power! More Power! But how much and what can one power with this 900W generator? Back in the day, Army used small noisy 1.5K gens to power lighting and such in the field.

I don’t think I’d be wanting to have to mix oil into gas during an outage… Sounds easy, but during a storm, with a flashlight… I dunno.

I think the bigger issue is just having fresh gasoline. The mixing is just pouring the oil in now that two-cycle oil comes in pre-measured bottles for common gas can sizes. Or you could make your own pre-measured set if your preferred brand does not come in your preferred gas can size.

Looks similar to Harbor Freight 800 Watt, 900 Watt surge 2 cycle generator, which has performed well for me…

One important thing to remember is that many common items require more power to cycle on/off or startup than they do to run. Keep this in mind when figuring out if a generator will work for you.

For example, many refrigerators only require around 500 watts to run but when the compressor kicks on, that can easily jump to 1500 watts for a few seconds which would likely cause this model to shut down at best or just self destruct at worst.

Here is a link to a PDF that lists wattage for many common items as well as what the startup watts are, if any.
Wattage Guide

This looks like Chicago Electric’s (Harbor Freight) 900w model, which has been very reliable for me as well.

2 cycle? How loud is this thing in decibels?

1 gallon tank means you’ll be needing to add gas about every 2.5 hours if you run it near full load.

I own the same generator and it works as well as the little train that could. Easy to start, provides reliable power and it’s very easy on fuel.

I use this generator to power my gas fired hot water heater, the gas fired hot water base board furnace plus one or two lights in the basement. This is a very light load for the generator, so a full tank of gas (one gallon) lasts about 3 to 3 and one half hours. Has not failed me during an 8 day prolonged outage and several shorter outages.

I usually mix a 5 gallon container with the proper oil mixture to which I have previously painted a large green circle so as to avoid using the oil mixed fuel on my larger 16 HP generator.

Finally, the price of this generator is right! I paid $99 for mine almost 2 years ago and the price is still the same today.

And the country of origin is?

I’ll update you here when I hear back from our buyer.

I have a big generator, but it sucks a lot of gas. I will use this during slow times, since according to a post 12 hrs on 1 gal. It will also be nice when I need some power on the lower 40 for projects.
