    Hi All, sorry to bring up the genny debate again!! I have read the previous posts on the clarke ig 1000 suitcase inverter generator & am just asking for some up to date feedback from users of said machine?

    I am also considering the KiporIG2000 New at £445 on fleabay, the clarke can also be had new for £300 on Fleabay .....but still wavering.......

    A Honda is not on the RADAR at all....:cry:

    TIA

    most of the reviews I read on the Clarke 1000 seemed pretty good the same can't be said about the larger model they do. after a lot of looking and review reading I went for the Hyundai 1000si It's been ok so far and comes with a 2 year warrenty.

    I read on here that the clarkes was ok BUT a bit heavy on oil......
    We have a Honda 10i ..1kw and a Kipor 2kw both ok...the Kipor is a little on the heavy side so we only take it when realy needed.. but we do use the Honda silient 10i..1kw most of the time:thumb:

    We have a 1.0 inverter generator, except it's not actually a Clarke but the same machine exactly as the one sold by Clarke in UK. Ours came from Gédimat (building materials supplier), in Normandy, for 185euros. 2 years warranty.
    We've used it quite heavily for various purposes over 3 years now, with no problems at all... for running power tools, lighting etc. during building and land work.
    When using it in (well, outside :RollEyes:) the MH we often have to turn the tv volume down to establish it's still running, so no complaints about noise either.

    Hyundai appears to be the up and coming generator choice in the mid price range
