Power Up: When the powers down

One Option for Emergency Power

Gas Generatorsgas-generator

I think gas generators might be a problem in a emergency .Going to get gas if there is two feet of snow or a inch ice on the ground that caused the power outage in the first place.Could be dangerous or an aggravation at the least.I don’t if know if this is one of the best generators for emergencies,but it is one option for emergency power.
Gas is to hard to store it goes bad pretty quick and is a danger to have a lot of it around your home.If there was a wide spread power outage gas station’s will not be able to pump it for you anyway.

They are costly to run:

Seven gallons per. twelve hours run time at fifty percent load.Fourteen gallons per. 24 hours at two dollars gallon twenty eight dollars a day.

Noise and Ventilation:

These units are loud to run.Sound rating (dB) 74 dB.Since they are gas powered it will have exhaust fumes that are deadly.The gas generators have to be run outdoors.Period it no exception!!

Power Output

The unit i was looking at was 13 horsepower.With recoil start.And it put out 6500 peak watts,5500 running watts.That should work good for emergency power,work for job site, household use or run blower motor for your heat and air conditioning in a emergency.

Size and weight

This unit is a little on the heavy side at a 165 pounds.We will need it on a cart to be able to move it around.It is 223/4 inches tall,22 inches wide and 267/8 long.

IN A EMERGENCY ONE OF THESE UNITS WOULD BE GREAT TO HAVE TO POWER UP.
