gas powered generator

Hey fellow canuckiods, if ur like me, u luv to buy new tools/gadgets. Walmart has a 1200 Watt 2-stroke powered generator on right now for 149.00.

I picked one up this morn, havnt run it yet but will let you know how it works as soon as I try it out.

Great for hauling around where ever you might need some portable 110V power.

It also has a built in 12V charger.

It is rated at 65db, so should be pretty quiet.

Cheers!

Tried it out today, its very quiet running and I tried different power items right up to the maximum rating of 10A.

For those interested, here is the website of the company that imports them.

It wasnt advertised as being on special. I have never seen this item at Walmart before.

Perhaps they picked up a deal.

I used it for 4hrs today outside, worked great.

Cheers
