Generac Gas Generator Review - Wareham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 05, 2016
Generac Gas Generator

Electricity in the outdoors has become commonplace in recent years, with solar panels and portable battery packs now fixtures of the modern campsite. But despite quieter, cleaner options, for big jobs you still need the power of gas.

A new entry in the gas-generator market, Generac introduced its iQ2000 model as a smart, powerful generator without all the excess noise. Generators have a bad image with some campers. Older units are loud, exhaust-spewing contraptions that can wreck the peace at a park. Though the

Generac is not silent, its engine hum is relatively benign, quieter than most idling cars.

Dual Plug-Ins

The Generac offers a pair of 120v plug-ins just like you get at home. It’s able to output 1600 watts while running, which is enough to power small gadgets to big appliances. See note on limitations below.

Operation is easy — you pull a starter cord and adjust the throttle dial as it comes alive. LEDs on the front give an interface for assessing power usage, maintenance issues like low oil, and available electricity with the remaining fuel.

Its max capacity, just more than a gallon of gasoline, will give hours of run time, depending on the device. A digital clock on the generator’s face counts down the hours and minutes as the fuel is used by the 4-stroke, 79cc engine.

Gas Generator Review

I tested it on multiple power-hogging products, including a large appliance, lights, and an electric saw. It handled any small electronics product with ease.

The engine jumped and required “turbo” mode to power a full-size refrigerator. But after some adjustment, with the engine revving and then calming down again, the Generac was able to output a steady flow of current for the fridge to keep it operating without pause.

Full Generator Test

Tools such as a sander, circular saw or drill press can easily draw 1800 watts or more, so if you’re planning repairs at the cabin, be sure to look at the specs of your tools when shopping for a generator. For my circular saw, this little guy just won’t cut it. The brand makes more powerful generators for work sites and heavy use.

Granted, in the woods camping, that kind of tool will rarely be used. Everything else I plugged in was easily managed by Generac’s gas-to-electricity machine.

Overall, I was happy with the performance. My past experiences with gas generators have been loud and exhaust-ridden. You can certainly smell the Generac’s fumes, but set 20 feet from a picnic table the little unit, especially on the other side of a car, is an unobtrusive power source.

Generac is headquartered in Wisconsin, and the iQ2000 is made in the USA. It comes with a three-year warranty and a $799 price tag — getting you more watts for the dollar than a venerable Honda, whose 1,000 watt EU1000i rings in for $950 retail.

Measuring about 20 x 12 x 17 inches, and weighing about 45 pounds, the Generac is manageable for car camping or use anywhere you can get with a truck or car. It’s a great backup to keep at home in the garage, too, in case your grid goes down.

Automatic Home Generators Made More Affordable – Wareham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, April 25, 2016

Generac has two technologies that make installing an automatic home backup generator easier and more affordable for homeowners.

Generac’s Smart Management Modules (SMM) are a load management system that allow homeowners to purchase a lower kilowatt automatic backup power system that fits within their budget, while the new 16 circuit NEMA 3R rated automatic transfer switch helps reduce installation costs for customers with an electrical panel located outside the home.

The Smart Management Modules and 16 circuit NEMA 3R transfer switch ensure that automatic backup power systems are available for all homeowners.

Smart Management Module (SMM)

Generac’s new Smart Management Modules (SMM) are a load management system that manages backup power to essential circuits identified by the homeowner, and autonomously pushes available power to non-essential circuits, as it becomes available.

The Smart Management Modules are wire-free, which makes them easier to install since no control wires are required, and helps lower installation costs. Up to eight Smart Management Modules can be installed with a compatible automatic transfer switch, to manage power loads. The Smart Management Module technology is protected in a NEMA 3R weather-proof enclosure, making each unit compatible for indoor and outdoor installations. Additional features include an LED indicator light, which allows homeowners to verify which essential circuits are receiving power, as well as a lockout switch that prevents unwanted operation of circuits while operating on generator power.

New 16 Circuit Weather-Proof Automatic Transfer Switch

The new 16 circuit NEMA 3R rated automatic transfer switch is weather-proof, and can withstand high winds, rain, and winter storms. Electrical circuits are protected by an aluminum corrosion-resistant enclosure, and it accepts breakers from multiple manufacturers. Power can be provided to up to 16 essential circuits in a home by using this new transfer switch and customers can expand their backup coverage to 24 circuits, through the use of tandem breakers.

Prior to these options, homeowners without a basement or interior utility closet had to purchase a costly, custom-built subpanel that could be installed outside the home.

Outdoor Portable Power Just Got Quieter with Generac – Wareham, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, February 01, 2016

Superior to the Competition: The all-new Generac iQ2000 provides quieter, smarter power wherever you go Generac’s new iQ2000 inverter power generator is third-party tested and proven to be quieter than current market leader Honda, ensuring hunters, campers, even tailgaters can savor the sounds of nature without compromising power. And Generac didn’t stop at sound: End-users also benefit from the intuitive, fully functional LED dashboard that shows fuel level status, remaining runtime and wattage use.

“We’re already experiencing tremendous consumer interest because outdoor enthusiasts have never had access to a source of portable power quite like the iQ2000,” said Aaron Jagdfeld, Generac CEO. “For the first time, people have a smart, powerful generator option without all the excess noise they’ve had to put up with previously and with the added benefit of being the only inverter generator engineered and built in the U.S.”

Known for product innovation, Generac designed the all-new iQ2000 with state-of-the-art sound mitigation technology coupled with advanced electronics that greatly reduces noise and improves fuel consumption. As a result, the iQ2000 provides the ideal way to enjoy the benefits of modernized camping and outdoor activities, without disturbing the sounds of nature or fellow campers.

“Launching a new product is always exciting, but this one is particularly impressive given the long list of benefits the iQ2000 provides,” said Jagdfeld. “From tailgating parties, camping trips, hunting expeditions and outdoor DIY projects, the iQ2000 is a powerful, portable companion for outdoor activities that’s truly the market leader.”

Generac also makes the iQ2000 extremely easy to operate with the innovative PowerDial™ that integrates the start/run/stop functions into one easy-to-use control. Plus, the Smart LED dashboard shows fuel level, remaining runtime, wattage use and generator status. Users won’t have to waste time during their outdoor activities trying to gauge the status of their generator; the iQ2000 will let them know when to refuel and easily identify available wattage. For anyone looking to bring the comforts of the indoors along on their outdoor adventure (or for serious “glampers”) the iQ2000 features paralleling capabilities. Users can combine two generators for nearly double the power without sacrificing portability. So bring on the tent air conditioners, laptop chargers and popcorn maker – the iQ2000 can make even the least outdoorsy users feel at home in the wild.

The iQ2000 inverter portable generator from Generac will be available September 2015 from select retailer partners across the country, online at Generac.com, and from participating Generac distribution partners. For more information on portable outdoor power, contact South Shore Generator.
