I mention this in another thread, but I broke down and bought one.
No doubt this is not a top notch genset, but what do you get for a $150. I see other nice Honda systems, but $1000 is out of the question for me, so better than doing without.
1000 watts / 1200 max. 120 VAC
10 amps 12 VDC
2-stroke 63 CC
1.01 US Gal capcity
4.5 Hours run-time
Dry weight 55lbs. even I can lift it.
I thought it would sound like a chain saw, but no way, sounds like a 4 stroke. I'm sure they make quieter ones, but it's not bad at all. Hooked up my 7" 10 amp skill saw, and yes it slowed down but then reved -up and handled the saw, but I really will have to try it under load. ( I cut up a lot of skids at the campground last year)
I really wanted a straight 12 volt charger, but when I took it apart, there's 2 windings, 110 and 12. No way to boost the 12 volt, would need heavier windings in the stator.
Won't run your A/C, but run the camper and it's system will charge the batteries at 25 amps. ( sounds dumb, making 120vac to charge 12 volts, but amps are the killer)
