Portable Generator Wattage Needs
When choosing a portable generator, it's important to identify the starting watts of all the devices you might power at the same time. Some devices draw additional power as they get up and running. If this additional wattage is not accounted for, system overload can result. To determine your requirements for a portable generator.

Got us through October 2011 Connecticut Power Outage, November 7, 2011 By Mary M. "Mary M." - See all my reviews
Ran this generator for 7 days during the Connecticut October Blackout. Powered the house and kept us warm. Never failed and sipped gas once wired up to a 220 line. Can be a bit hard to start in sub-freezing weather.
