Looks very well priced considering the 3 year warranty and multi-output sockets. The wheels are a big plus. My generator is similar spec. but without the wheels and it weighs a bleeding ton.
#2
Just what I was looking for!
#3
How loud are these when running?
#4
Sorry, I don't know. Have a look at an equivilant one on another website, and expect it would the same (there or thereabouts).

Mine is roughly same as this and is very quiet when running. We have frequent power cuts so I have this running in my garage, next to my house, and I cannot hear it from outside the garage. Runs for ages on a full tank of petrol.

These are available only from Thursday, is that right? Could of done with it before that!

Expect it to be about 92dbA-94 dbA, or about 72dbA-74dbA @ 7m.

They are not that noisy, but loud enough to make sure you don't fall asleep next to it!

Yes, I've just added the start date to the OP :)

If you're lucky, you may pick one up late on Wednesday, near closing time - it depends on the store and when they put out their stock.

If you want one, don't be late as I doubt they'll last long. :thumbsup:

I hope you leave your garage doors/window open! don't want you accidentally gassing yourself!

Great!!! was looking for one of these to power my laptop on long bus trips down to london!! Do you think its quiet enough for this?


lol...

Also bear in mind the 10 hours is likely to be at minimum output, and it is a 3 gallon tank, so works out just over 3 hours 20 minutes per gallon.

Out of interest how much kit could you power with one of these ?

Continuous output: 2500W is the important figure. Here's some examples of what things consume http://www.dieselgenerators.com/power.htm

You would be able to comfortably run lights for your entire house and maybe a television and a few other things.

I need a new one to run the frige and tea urn on my burger van, mine at the minute has no wheels and its so heavy to lift in and out the trailer thought this would be a lot better.

or try turning on the oven with all the hobs
#19
Anyone in danger of being cut off their electricity through non-payment would be well advised to buy one of these.

They are also good during severe weather when invariably the power gets cut off for a while.

Also take it with you on your holidays and you wont need to mess about with stupid adaptors ever again.

But best of all when your neighbours see it they will be dead jealous!!!

Oh my god what i piece of junk!!! i sell generators for a living and we make millions from guys like you lot who go off and buy the cheapest crapiest chinese manufactured rubbish on the market...

Noise wise this will be like a lawnmower engine running beside you, 70dba would be the noise level measured at 7m (21 foot) standard fair for any open frame generator . the run times are measured at 3/4 load by the way and you would get 2800 watts for a very few seconds say like 30 then it would revert to the 2500 watts..

Do yourself a favour and bypass all the grief and get yourself a nice little Pramac Honda powered 3200 Moto GP special edition here http://www.justgenerators.co.uk/pages/PramacES3000.htm super little piece of kit.

Believe me its the difference between chalk and cheese, anyone needs to ask me any question's please do so...

Not sure what your point is. Anyone looking for a cheap generator to keep you covered in case of a power supply disruption would be well advised to consider one of these from Aldi. If, however, you are looking for a professional quality, every day use, generator then you may wish to do a bit more research into long term reliabilty. I have had my cheapo generator for a wee while now and it has yet to let me down. Bit cheeky of you to hijack the thread to rubbish these items and proclaim how wonderful another, much more expensive, item is that you are obviously trying to sell. Where I live we constantly get power cuts and need to run our generators for days on end. Me and my neighbours have a collection of the cheapest generators you can buy. Yet every time there is a power cut they all manage to come to life after a few tugs on the starter.

The point is he is trying to use this comment section as a chance to spam us with advertising his own business of generators that probably work exactly the same as this one...his is double the price of course

I sell generators from a bricks and mortar buisness not the internet for your information, 95% of these type of machines will end up as a molton piece of metal after 3 years or before!!!
Try getting parts for them after 3 years thats my point!!!! 3 years compared to a gen that will cost £350 and last 20 years, you might as well buy that in first place save you the agro when this type goes tits up during the cold dead of night and your £500 pounds worth of frozen foods melts infront of your crying eyes:whistling:

You have a "COLLECTION" i wonder why so more then one machine incase one of your other cheap **** fails you have another to back it up or have you got a generator fetish???

No come on you seem to be a man of great generator knowledge lets here it!! wolf, Kipor, powerplonker or some other chinese mass produced rubbish,

No self respected house holder would just go out and spend £180 of their hard earned without some advise from people who deal with this type of thing day in day out.
This would NOT run a kettle, and would keep your neighbours up all night with the noise unless it was buried 100 feet away lmao.

And im sure it IS HELPFUL that people are aware of the problems they can face buying these type of generators....

The purpose of the generator I will be buying will be for power cuts (which we get lots of). The gennie will live in the garage (30ft away) and will provide power when required. Why would I want to spend twice as much! Im not a complete mug! (plus it has a 3 year warranty).

Im not a complete c*ck, I do realise that if you need to use a generator for your business every day then a Honda powered one is the answer, but for my needs (and that of most other people on here) this one will work fine.

Hope you voted hot!

People are talking about using these if there is a power cut but....How on earth do you connect one of these to the electric grid in your home....Some one will probably come on and say its as simple as plugging it into a normally plug socket or something.....

The power never goes out here but with the huge mess labour have made of our energy policy, its likely we could see blackouts regularly within the next 5 years. So this is something that interests me.

Unless you're a qualified electrician you can't hook this up to your house electrics, it is possible though but I wouldn't advise it as you would probably blow yourself up as the grid has to be OFF OFF not just a brown or black out. You have to have a long extension lead and run your appliances off that, but the extension lead would need to be high enough rated to handle the load, heavy duty extension leads only.

It is actually simple to do this. However, I don't want to be responsible for your death should you get it wrong. You have to totally isolate your house from the grid before connecting up the generator. I am sure if you did a google search you will find some information.
#39
Thanks thats all I wanted to know. Dont worry I wont be doing it myself. I would get a fully qualified electrician to do it...

As far as I can see there is little point in having on of these as backup unless its properly and safely wired in...

It will cost you a lot more than the generator for the equipment required.
