Questions & Answers

Will it run a sump pump and/or a frig.???

Asked by: Rich
Yes it should. Depend on how big a sump pump you have. To be sure you need to know the amps of the things you will be plugging up to it. This unit will put out 10 amps. {watts divided by voltage = amps.} So if you have a power tool that requires 5 amps you will need 600 watts to power this tool. [5 amps x 120 volts = 600watts.] The amp rating should be located on the equipment or tool or the motor itself.

1,200-Watt Recoil Start Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 96.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent product! In my business (repairs and renovations), efficiency is the key. Having the right tool for the job makes all the difference, and my generator makes it happen. I can take it anywhere and know that I don't have to worry about any issues on the job site.
Date published: 2017-07-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the money Perfect for single person jobs where there is no power available. Lightweight and you get a good long run off one tank. Perfect generator also if your moving a lot on a project, I transport it around with a cart around one of our jobs (30acres) and it's very convienent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Generator Use it to power a cabin. Pretty quiet and easy start. Only issue is replacing the spark plug - requires that the gas tank be removed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from almost as quiet as a honda I've had this generator for about two years and I love it!! I put royal purple oil in it after break in and this generator is great on gas and is very quiet. I recently bought a newer trailer and just got my new champion 3500/4000 watt with remote start today. Fired right up I'm ready to go camping again in a couple of weeks. I'll review that one when I try everything in the trailer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product We used this during a power outage. We didn't have power for a few days, and this worked wonderfully. It was very conservative on gas. We didn't have to fill it very often. It was fairly quiet. It worked super well. I was able to run my fridge and freezer and a fan, keeping both us and our food cool in the heat until the power was back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great This a great product. Worth the price. Runs smooth. Wish it had a dual handle and not the single. Pretty quiet but hey its a big generator. Its gonna make some noise. Worth the price.Fired up first time. Great information in paper work.
