Thanks for the heads up....I passed it on to a few of my friends looking for generators.

There special right now is any order over $249.99 ships for free or something along thoose lines.

BTW I have the powermate version of that generator which they used to sell , subaru engine and all. Ive put ALOT of hours on it well over 2000. It always starts easily and runs well. I get 12-14 hrs out of 5 gallons of fuel depending on the load if I remember right. Usually we fill it in the morning and then again at night.

Wow. I wish they had something a little smaller though. Like 2K watts for 40% off.

Walmart has a 2k generator for $199 http://www.walmart.com/ip/All-Power-America-2000W-Generator-Open-Frame/13115742 I had one before I bought the bigger generator. I gave it to my father so when the power goes out he can run his oxygen machine. They are a bit loud but it got us through Katrina down in FL with out problem.

ETA they keep them in the misc crap isle where they sell the firelogs atleast thats where I found it.

The two listed above have subaru and yamaha engines. Which one of those are better, power aside.

Crap shoot, same basic design slant single. I would bet they are just about identical.

I have two of that exact same genset. Both with the Subuaru motors.

Bought them both used, first one I got for $300 (practically new) second was $160. Both have served me well.

They are both LOUD! My 800 watt harbor freight gennys sound like Honda's when compared to the 5k Coleman's.

Its a good unit, and great price.

We used to keep a piece of plywood to lean against the front (panel and plug side) and point the exhaust away. The single piece of plywood actually kicks ALOT of the sound away

I can't see it on the website but does anyone know how long this deal lasts? I already have one but may pick up another.

That will run about any home furnace I can think of, except maybe an electric forced air or a very large heat pump.

Thanks. I bought the 5700 watt one for $419. We lost our power a couple weeks ago due to the ice storm and got a hotel because we didn't have heat. A few years ago we lost power for 5 days because of hurrican Ike....but not any more.

I really need a gen that is reasonably quiet in acoustic noise and well as quiet in RF interference though.

My thoughts exactly. Problem now is, which one. There are a few good deals. Can't decide between the 5000 or the 5700 one. Any advice as to which one?

I picked up the 5700. I have been looking for a good deal on a new or used genny that would push my 240V well pump when needed. Thanks for the heads up on this, Jake.

in the 5000 watt range, are there other options that are going to be significantly quieter? and how loud is loud? the rating is 72db. the 5700 is 77db. - which i believe makes either considerably quieter than a lawn mower.

im trying to decide if this is a super smoking deal or if i'll wish i'd spent some extra money further down the road.

eta. i checked out the honda generators. they do have some comparable models that are quieter, but are about 5x the price. even the model with a similar rating is 1200.00. where does this cost difference come from?
Link Posted: 2/16/2011 10:29:48 AM EDT
The 5700 model is out of stock. I jumped on the 5000.

It's loud, not as loud as my snowblower but loud enough that you wouldn't want to hang out around it and if you have close neighbors they will know it's running. I actually put a extra muffler on it and it helped, there is still alot of mechanical noise. Went from loud to tolerable with the muffler mod.

Friend has a Kipor IG6000, I think he paid about $1300 for it, thing is really quite. Hard to tell if it's running within 10' if it's idled down and it's not a perfectly calm day.

I must have hit on one of the last 5700's. Sweet deal. I should have bought two. I am lucky. Thanks OP.

X2 here. I don't have 2k hours on mine, maybe a couple hundred. I changed the oil over to Royal Purple. My generator is happy.

On a side note, take your box and cut a small semi circle on both sides of the open side. Flip it over and you have a free generator cover. Mine still looks like it came out of the box. Then again, I was freaking bored out of my skull one day and used car wax on the painted part of my generator. It works great and looks pretty doing it.

My 5700 was backordered. I called to get an estimate on ship time and they said they did not know. It could never come. I had a customer care person call me a few days later. I asked if I could get another genny 40% off with free shipping. They gave me a choice of one of three. (See new post to avoid hijack)
Link Posted: 2/20/2011 5:03:05 AM EDT
Was it just those two for 40% off, or are there others?

I only seen a few that were 10%.

Not sure if it's related, but I've been seeing these on Craigslist in the 500.00 range. New, unused, etc. I think there were more than a few flippers.

If you wanted one and didn't get, check your local CL. Make a lowball offer. They may have only paid have of what they are asking.
