Is it powerfull enough to run my house

Asked by: Robin
Even though you didn't provide any information about your house, I feel comfortable in telling you that no this is not powerful enough to run your home as a whole. You could run some lamps, a refrigerator, TVs, computer, and other modest wattage items. Keep in mind you can't run them all at once. Also keep your in mind that for sensitive electronic devices you are better off using an inverter generator but that will cost you much much more. I've used this generator for tailgating and camping. For emergency house power I have a generator much much more powerful.

I have a motor 7 . 0 and 115 v . I can use this generator?

Asked by: Valentin
If I understand your question, poorly written as it is, then possibly yes. If you mean to say you have a motor that draws 7 amps at 115 VAC, then you would be at 805 Watts (7A*115V=805W) which is pretty close to the Continuous Wattage rating of 800. If by chance your motor draws 120 VAC, then you're still within what I would consider a valid range. And if your motor has a 7 amp starting load, then drops down to say 4 or 5 amps once running, then you are certainly in the ballpark as this generator's specs say it will surge (as in provide extra power to spin up a motor) to 1250 Watts, so 1250W/115V=10.86A when you only need 7.

Great little generator, very quite and starts every time on the first pull. Saved us while camping in a remote area. I forgot to turn off the ignition key switch in my Suburban and the battery was dead the next morning. I hooked up the Energin and let it charge the battery. Very thankful to have it with us.....

I bought this to use in the woods with an electric chainsaw about a year and a half ago. It worked one time. Not recommended! Will not start except momentarily on ether. Very hard pull, my arm hurts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mighty Mite!!! Straight out of the Box this Generator was a Pure Joy to use. Take time to read Owners Manual for first start up. It wont take long and is very important. My friends were over when it arrived and helped with pictures and start up. Put in gas and 3 pulls was all it took! Waited 5 minutes, per manual instructions and plugged in my 2 1/2 hp. table saw. Slight draw then steady Power, even cutting through a 2 by 4. Let run 3 minutes. and shut off. started again in a few minutes with 1 pull. Very easy to use. Light weight. Plenty of Power for a 1250- Watt Generator. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Needed I've never owned a generator so I wasn't sure what to expect. This Energin 1250 Watt Generator however was exactly what I needed. From taking it out of the box to having it up and running took all of ten minutes. The only assembly needed was attaching the carry handle on top. I used 50:1 premix fuel rather than mixing my own. It just seems to work better to me. It took two pulls and it was humming away. I tested a box fan, drill, portable radio, 19 inch television, and our second refrigerator (all separately). They all ran without issue. I was very pleased with the sound level. I envisioned this 2 cycle engine screaming like a weed trimmer but that's not the case. Locating it just a little away from the area you are in makes the noise seemingly disappear. I intend to take this on our next camping trip. My family camps in tents. There is no great need for electricity but having it is nice for watching movies, listening to the radio, and recharging equipment. Having our own power keeps us from draining the car battery and allows use to camp in parks where there are no electrical hookups.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works, but poor build quality The generator works as intended, but the build quality isn't up to par. Upon arrival I took out the generator, set it up with fuel, and cranked it right up after a couple of pulls and choke adjustment. Great. I noticed the generator was wobbly, so I thought it was on uneven pavement, picked it up to see that one of the feet/legs was broke off. Looks like poor/cheap aluminum construction. I will have to run the fuel out and return the unit for a replacement. As far as the working order, it did the job, used a sawzall to cut through some plumbing pipe, worked great.

The product itself is labelled as OHV. This is a lie. The engine is also labelled as 2 cycle and states that a 50:1 gas/oil mix is required. I did not get the feature that I wanted which is 4 cycle OHV. I have attached a photo of this deceit in your "add a photo & enter to win $1000 offer. Tim

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No prblems at all I used this for a weeked of camping. It's started right up every time the only thig that I didn't like is. I ran two fans and that's it. And it would only run for about 6 hours. Other then a bigger gas tank it ran great. No problems at all.
