650W (800W peak) Generator £59.99 at Aldi

JapanJapan

Available from Sunday 8th July 2012 whilst stocks last

Always an annual favourite. These little generators typically cost about £100 in places like B&Q, Screwfix, Toolstation, etc.

Use as an alternative power source for remote work sites or jobs with no ready electricity supply. Also handy for caravanning, camping, boating, domestic power cuts and more.

Maximum output: 800W
Constant output: 650W
Engine: 2HP, 2 stroke
Displacement: 63cc
Fuel type: 50:1 petrol/oil mix
Fuel tank capacity: 4 litres
Speed: 3600rpm

AC and 12V DC output. (12V leads supplied)

At just £59.99 backed by a 3 year warranty, you can't go wrong.
They are bound to sell out fast, so if you want one, I suggest yoy get there early Sunday. Posting this early so you can check out in advance the Sunday opening time of your local store.

    Sounds like something every man should have. No idea if I'd ever find a use for it though.

    It'll last forever if it's always full

    My thoughts exactly. Especially being 2-stroke.

    Every year I want to buy one of these.. But every year I come to the same conclusion that I don't know what I would use it for....

    I am gadget mad and couldn't live without electricity.. But I can't think of a time where I have ever needed 'remote power'.. There MUST be a use.. Surely, I can think of somethign which will justify this...

    Typically 5-6 hours, perhaps a little longer depending on load

    I've had one for years, we put it in the wheel barrow and push it around the garden with the hedge trimmer and strimmer. If power goes off I power an UPS with it to run the tv, central heating, and fridge. It needs the UPS to smooth the wave form out.

    Hmmms.... Are these ridiciously loud? :) im a photographer and film maker and sometimes i dont get a area with eletricity ..... would this be good?

    Don't waste your money. There are very few power tools that this will run. I have owned one of these, and all they are really any good for is running a string of lights. Two Stroke Engines are more bother than they are worth, and are useless for running a generator. Spend a little more and buy something, (4Stroke), that will do the job.

    Spot on advice, you would not even have enough power to start the average 240v drill.

    Very Loud. You need a sinewave generator if using computers, camera power leads, flash units etc. I have a Honda Eu10, cost £300 2nd hand, 2KW and very quiet and will power anything under 2KW start up without problems. Note, lots of electricals may be rated 1.8kw for example, but will need lots more to start up, possibly 2.5kw.

    Unless you are in a field on your own with 200m of cable, this generator deal is for you

    Sounds like you got a bargain there.

    The Honda EU10 typically costs £840 new, and even on eBay used ones sell for £400-£500 especially if offered with delivery.

    However, the EU10 is only 900W (1000W peak), so I'm not sure how you manage to run 2kW items on it.

    Great, with 800 watts peak I should be able to boil my kettle in twice the time it normally takes.

    I don't think you quite understand electricity, do you?
