The next time the electric company decides to have a power outage, I'm ready!! I cranked it up and it can power the whole house including my central air. The best part is that it was originally priced at $600 and the store was having a sidewalk sale so it was marked down to $400 but because it was near closing it was discounted another 25%. So I got a brand new $600 generator for half price and all I had to add was the starting battery for about $35. Sweet!!
