do you have any generators in stock

Asked by Dello February 15, 2021

Answer

Do I have any generators in stock? Well... No! I am but a single individual and not Home Depot! However, I know for a fact that Home Depot does indeed carry a wide selection of generators. I bought my original one in Denver, CO at a store and took it home directly and since moved it to my own property here in Arizona. When it failed 5 years later, I went online and decided on the GEN4000, but it was not in stock and I had to order from their website. It arrived in very short order (7 days) and their customer service was great and even load it into my truck. So... if it is the GEN4000 that you are inquiring about, I can only speak for the store in Sierra Vista, AZ that I am familiar with, and they do not keep this generator in stock and you must order it online, or so as I have seen for the past 2 months. I do however recommend this generator, and I see it goes on sale from time to time, and even at the list price I think it is a great value, but even more so when they knock off a hundred bucks!!

Works like. champ
This was my first generator purchase after careful consideration. So far, all ha been great. I like that the generator was shipped directly from the manufacture. Assembly was easy and simple. I purchase the wheel kit with carry handle from another merchant specifically for this model generatorand that worked great! Engine started on first pull and I couldnt be happier with my purchase

Great generator for dry camping.
Perfect generator for boondocking, or dry camping. Fits perfectly on the back of my rack on my 31 foot travel trailer. Runs my 15K a/c, fridge, televisions, lights, and sump pump with no problem. It is a little louder compared to inverter generator but for $250 you can’t beat it. I’ve ran it for 5 days in a row without an issue, and that’s in the Texas heat with it 108 degrees. Again, for the price this genny is a beast.

havent used this for a long period of time yet but on the few test runs I did it performed well. It started right up each time and I ran it for about 10 minutes. It powered my refrigerator , small A/C window unit (5000 BTU) and also a 1500w space heater. I didn't run all 3 at once but it did not hesitate running each one. Its a bit loud but that was expected similar to a gas lawn mower. I put wheels on it with some spare parts I had in the shed. its heavy to move around without them , weighs about 80-90 lbs without gas.

Put oil and gas into it, started right away. Then using my apple watch I took sound level readings, holding my watch about 5ft above the ground. Readings were in my back yard with unit sitting on my concrete patio, about 15 feet from my house. No load on the generator. Ambient Noise Level, i.e. nothing running: 39db Distance (feet)/Reading (DB) 2 / 76 4 / 75 8 / 72 12 / 71 16 / 69 20 / 68 24 / 67 28 / 66 32 / 66 36 / 64 40 / 63 (this was inches from my wooden fence)
