    No such thing as a SILENT GENNY, they are all noisey and intrusive, mine is a Honda 100i and I hate using it around other vans in case I disturb anyone.:Blush::Blush::Blush:

    Only time a Genny is silent is when it is not working.

    If you are only going to use it very occasionally, start it now and again and put it under a bit of load. In my experience of kippors they need regular use, they can be a pain to start after a long lay off. The Honda on the other hand, will start after a pull or two no matter how long its been laid up. :Smile:

    ive seen it and it is a good price but just a little pricey for me because it will be getting very little use,thats why i was thinking a kipor its more bearable have about £300 sat around than £800:Smile:
