I just finished assembling our new generator. It is a 10K (peak) Gentron I purchased from Sam's. Best deal I could find. With taxes, right about $900.00. Our little 3.5K will now be sold. It was a blessing during January's ice storm but with the tenner we will be able to operate our well and wifey won't gripe about not being able to flush the toilets.
This is considered a portable unit, but, unless it is stolen, once set up, it stays in one spot outside, well covered.
