Re: hyundia generator

They are a little noisy, but that's how most open frame generators are. They are just like most Chinese made generators. They work well, but don't expect them to be as quiet as the inverter type generators like a Honda or Yamaha. I use a similar type generator in the mountains and I found that putting it behind the wood pile helps muffle some of the direct noise from it. It is usually not the exhaust that is loud, but more the intake and actual mechanical noise.

Diesel or gasoline? Inquiring minds want to know (for perhaps a deal.....)

Re: hyundia generator

Well, looks like you already have a genny, but if you're shopping again i like my Champion 3500W. Fairly quiet for it's size, and big enough to run a 15000BTU A/C. Lots of good reviews. Cabela's sell them, and many auto parts stores also carry them. Wait 'til they have a sale!

I seen those champion gennys at canadian tire, they look pretty good. I have a 2500 ECHO genny as well its quiet, has a made in japan robin motor real nice, but a bit small, this homelite is just to loud, when I have the tie ill see if I can put a muffler on it, If I really needed a generator I would buy a off brand, yes the hondas are the kings, but lets face it, you can buy 3 champions to 1 honda! also its not like your running them 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
