I rarely leave the farm except to go to Farmers Markets or make our delivery route runs. There just is not a whole lot in town that I find interesting. So for me to venture not only to a town but into a actual city, it has to be something truly worthwhile that lures me there. Very worthwhile indeed to get me there on a Black Friday. Generators!!! In particular the Predator Generators Harbor Freight now carries. A friend bought one a while back and I have been quite impressed with it. They are still on sale today. I picked up the Predator 13,500 for $1500 and a Predator 8,750 for $500 Have seen them other places for $2400 for the13500 and $1000 for the 8750. The 13500 is a beast at 425 pounds and runs like a dream. I plugged the welder in and cranked it up good and hot and didn't even slow this generator down. Plenty of power to replace my old generac 10,000w that has been the back up generator for the last 6 years. Not uncommon for the power to go out here and I have to keep 12 big chest freezers, a walk in cooler and a walk in freezer powered up. All combined they pull 9800 watts. So I hooked this big guy up to the alternate electric system and flipped the line breakers one at a time. When I flipped the breaker for the walk in freezer compressor last it did bog the generator down a bit on the initial surge of start up, but it recovered in a few seconds. I normally run the chest freezers in a outage on a 6500w generator and the Walk in on the 10k. but to test the new generator I want the full load. Not good btw to run a generator for a long time at or close to a full load. Just really hard on any generator. 50%-60% load is where I like to run if it is going to be more than a few hours. The 8750 is a lot lighter at a hair over 200 pounds, also held up to the load testing I did last night within its parameters. Going to mount this one on the MCP (Mike's Construction Platform) lol a old 16' flatbed trailer I use for building things around the farm it is basically 8' x 16' work bench. With tool boxes, air compressors, a welder, and a generator. So the 8750 is going on it. My friend has been running his on jobsites and around the farm for a couple of years now and estimates he has around 2200 hours on it. That works for me. Anyway the price is right on all of their generators at Harbor Freight, if you have one near by the Black Friday sale is still going on today and Sunday.
