Well I didn't see that comingBecause its not inverter technology. Its 2 stroke and will stink and a good possibility of destroying MH electrics. You pays your money and takes a chance, but personally I wouldn't bother.
A lot of problems with these gen sets. Firstly, they are two stroke, and you have to mix the stuff up in the correct proportions. Many problems with leakage of fuel, which then 'melts' the rubber feet. They are very noisy, and they produce loads of exhaust smoke, and spares are non-existent. Plus, they aren't full sine-wave, and so battery chargers, camera chargers etc, can catch fire if plugged into them.
They aren't new. Trade warehouses are flogging them off at stupid money. Beware if you buy one.
Sorry Jim, I thought these small cheap gennies used square wave as a 'get you by' alternative. I surrender to your superior knowledge!...(My dads dead, and anyway, all he was an expert at was driving tanks and women)I was with you until you said.. "aren't full sine-wave" ,.. infact they are.. however...
the problem is this..
it's the genny speed that determines the frequency and it isn't governed very well, which means you can get frequency spikes when they start and when load is applied..
If in any doubt.. ask someones dad..
Thanks Brian. I go with Jims 'revs = spikes' thing then. So how do these new inverter generators work?? Is it a normal armature set up, with an added inverter, or are they packed full of smoothing coils?You are getting confused with cheap inverters.
A magnet rotating in a coil produces a sine wave in a power station and little genny.
