I bought this when Irene came to town but didn't need it, but with SANDY it was a different story. I ran this generator for three days straight. 2 refrigerators,a 1500watt heater,two sump pumps,2 tv's with cable boxes and let my two neibiors to plug in there sump pumps,coffee pots and a heater too. I just ordered a transfer switch to install on my panel so i won't need extention cords. GREAT BUY..

I bought this generator late last year after the October 31st snow storm that hit the east coast. I had my main electrical panel replaced with one that includes an interlock.
I used this generator for 7 days in a row, nearly 24 hours each day after hurricane Sandy. It powered 2 refrigerators, a gas furnace, an oil boiler, a TV, DVR, lights, and a few laptops with no problems.
I highly recommend this Powermate-Yamaha generator.

I purchased this unit when we moved to Honduras. Being Caribbean people we know not to count on 100% local energy. We have been on many power outages.
With power out and fuel availability limited, we are happy with the low fuel consumption. With extended outages we run 2 hours on and 2 hours off. We maintain our freezer, refrigerator, and keep our have ample power to run any and all household appliances. Yes definitely hard wire it in for convenience, and if you live remotely pick up an extra filter and spark plug. .
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, All In One, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting

During the halloween storm Temp in the house dropped to 46 degrees for 6 days. Borowed my friends but it was old and loud. Would not even run a lamp and electric heater. Bought the powermate and out of the box ran 3 lights and 4 electric heaters on full power.Had electrician come to the house and set up own breaker panel. Now it runs everything.Spend the extra money on this product. With the Yamaha motor and 8 gallon tank, Its the best.
