Those are examples.  Most just do 120 V, and most of those do it with floating neutral (i.e. hot and neutral vary 60 volts to chassis ground which sucks).

That’s good to know, thanks. At 263lbs empty on the one at the second link, it’s not very mobile, but it provides an option of one of those running on propane rather than the typical standby generators for backup home use.

I think that will be my plan for now.  Have a decent-sized inverter generator to run everything but the central AC and rely on a mini-split and maybe window unit if there's a hurricane power outage.  A tri-fuel conversion to run it on natural gas would be put on it almost immediately, too.
