Get the power you need anytime, anywhere
Portable Generator is a lightweight and portable generator with durability and undeniable power. Take this generator camping, tailgating or use for backup power in your house or mobile home. Its peak power of 2000 watts makes the APG3014 big enough for a 4 stroke engine doing away with the mixture of gas and oil that is required by smaller 2 stroke generators.
Portable and powerful without disturbing anyone
The APG3014 will last for 9 hours at 1/2 load and only requires 1.32 gallons of unleaded gasoline. This makes it easy to use and transport. Just fill the easily-accessible gas tank and turn it on and it's ready to go.

I purchased this generator for to reasons 1 for work and the other is to power items in the house when I have a power failure. It starts fine no problem and supports all items I have put to it.
For the price, this is a good backup unit, December 29, 2011 By Sean T. Busch (Austin, TX)
For $199 shipped, this is hard to beat. This said, there are also things to note which may lead you to pay more for a nicer unit.
This unit is mass-produced and it seems to be a little lacking on quality assurance based on all of the reviews. I had one overnighted to my in-laws just prior to Hurricane Irene. This saved hundreds of dollars worth of food in the fridge and a little sanity as they were able to run a light and also the TV when the fridge was off. This alone paid for itself. As noted by some more in-depth interviews, the 2KW rating is a little optimistic. It will bog down around 1600 watts and probably will shut down at 2000.
The big positive is that this unit is a 4-stroke and is notably quiet for an engine. It will burn through a tank of gas in about 5 or so hours. The spark plug installed from the factory is terrible. It fouled out after about 3 days of use. It also runs a little dirty during the break-in period so expect to do an oil change early on and to do some general cleaning with the fuel system. Once you get past the fact that these items are a bit sloppy from the factory and you break it in, this is a great device for backup.
After getting them through almost 2 weeks without power, they will be looking into a 5-10 kw generator with plenty of features that will mimic actually having electricity. For the occasional outage or need to use in a remote location, this unit is just fine. And again, at $200, its a deal.

Compact, light, pretty quiet, strong enough motor which is easy to start. Very friendly customer support when i called for technical questions. Has many features like Honda power units come with but much more cost effective.
