All Power America APG3014 Review

Features

The genset offers a standard power output of 1400W and a 2000 watts surge mode with its 3HP 4 stroke engine. The noise levels are acceptable for this type of generators with just 65 decibels. The unit will run for nine hours straight at half its capacity.

The genset is easy transport with a weight of roughly 54 pounds and compact measurements. You can put it in the trunk and go camping. The apg3014 delivers energy through 3 multipurpose outlets – 1x 12V and 2x AC 120V.

The tank holds up to 1.32 gallons of unleaded gasoline that you can purchase at the closest gas station. The engine is started by pulling a recoil cord. The model is compliant with the EPA requirements.

The safety measures taken by the manufacturer include auto shutdown when the fuel levels are low in order to prevent irreversible damage. The unit comes with a one year warranty.

Reputation

The All Power America is a famous brand with consistent reputation for its quality solutions. Its products usually receive 4 to 5 stars ratings in All Power generator reviews. The customers are generally satisfied with their purchases. You will find more detailed information below.

Pros

One of the most significant advantages of the series is most definitely its reasonable pricing. There are not that many solutions in the market that will keep your household running for less than $300. On top of that, the All Power America APG3014 doesn’t take much space and will easily fit in the trunk of your car – in fact, it takes less place than the tent and sleeping bag. It’s hands down a great choice to consider for people who enjoy camping and are looking for a reliable power source.

Another important feature is that the relatively quiet work cycle with noise emission of just 65 decibels lets you actually take a good nap with the unit running near you. You will definitely hear the device running, but it won’t be an annoying rumble.

As we’ve mentioned before, this All Power generator 2000 Watt is outfitted with a 4-stroke engine that brings the following advantages to the table:

  • increased components’ lifespan thanks to the advanced lubrication system;
  • cheaper fuel and more efficient work cycle;
  • significantly reduced volumes of exhaust gas.

The APG3014 is a great piece of gear worth its price.

Cons

The sole big issue with the All Power America brand is that you can have them repaired only at the manufacturer’s service centers. If you are looking for one, you should contact the APA and make an inquiry about the center that is located close to your area.

Durostar DS400s Review

The Durostar generator is versatile with its three 120 volt outlets (1x 30 amp and 2x 20 amp respectively). It can operate at half load for about 8 hours using as few as 4 gallons of gas. The casing features durable steel frames and isolated motor mounts. You can store and run the Durostar inside a garage – the noise is muffled good enough so that the noise doesn’t irritate you. The manufacturer offers a 1 year warranty; the unit also has some safety add ons to it, such as low oil automatic shutdown and protection against power surge.

Pros and cons

Pros:

An inexpensive solution for all of your camping needs that also fits perfectly as a supplementary power source, it is easy to operate. Aside from that, you will be relieved to know that the spare parts are rather cheap. The compact unit also produces low levels of noise.

Cons:

The Durostar generators need frequent oil change, no amp or watt meter, inadequate hardware and grounding accessories.

Speaking of cons, we should mention the following:

  • The device requires frequent oil changes;
  • There is no watt or amp meter to keep track of the unit’s state;
  • Hardware and grounding accessories could be produced from better materials.

User experience

I don’t think that chinese appliances are bad. They are affordable and they are built well enough to last for a year or so. The DuroStar is one of those Chinese brands that actually made it into the international market and managed to surpass some of the famous american brands.

Their main advantage, as mentioned above, is that it’s your sure bet if you’re on a tight budget. Basically, this means you’ll have to spend much less on maintaining and operating this device, than you would need for an industrial grade solution. This counts for fuel expenditure as well – with a full 4 gallons tank it keeps the home appliances running for about 10 hours. For instance, you can run a TV set, a refrigerator, a/c unit and two bulbs. All you need to do to get the device running is to use the start switch and pull the recoil cord.

After you switch the genset off, don’t forget to drain the gas and oil, and refill the tanks before the next start. If you follow these simple rules, this device should keep running for a long period of time.

Another advantage of the series that I’d like to mention in my Durostar generator review is that the motor mount efficiently dampens the noise produced by the motor – this features makes the DS4000S one of the most silent gensets of the DuroStar lineup. It’s even more quiet than a lawn mower!

Keep in mind though that the device may require an oil change every 20 hours or so. Draining the oil may be somewhat challenging because the spout is located underneath the frame; it turns the whole procedure a mess. Besides, you should request extra packaging from the retailer because the original manufacturer pack lacks foam protection. The issue may result in frame damage which is clearly something you would want to avoid.

Boliy Pro3600SI

imeges1

Welcome to our review of Boily generator. We were planning purchasing model from Honda, but then we stumbled upon this brand and thought it is too good to be true…or is it?

As an alternative for Honda EU2000i we were in search for quiet, 3000 watts, 68 lbs and about 53Db loud. And for a price of 990$ you are getting a pretty good deal with Boily. So let us dig in.

So what do you get right out of the box?

Well, as you already know, it is an inverter module, thus it is suitable for RV and sensitive electronics.It is silent, lightweight, can run any AC module, easily connects to RV, gives 3000 watts of steady output, 120V of decent and stable output, noise level is also bearable non the least ( about 58 db max) and It runs for smooth 16 hours. Also it has an indicator with built in measurements of entire running time and time meter. Also it has tasty red design and you surely will love it.

This is the first case, when the name of the model does not fit the actual wattage, but who cares if it works incredibly well. It is a worthy member of a Honda, Yamaha and Kipor club, especially on technological behalf. It uses advantages of German processing technology, so the conversion is at the 20% level, and if you connect one of modules from companies mentioned before. Need to take it somewhere? Just throw it into the trunk and get going. It is somewhere nears the 50% of lightness of the traditional machine, so this is a huge benefit for travelers.

 

So, why choose digital inverter generator? Well, our modern life forces us into being quick on the going and compact in every possible way. And also, the environmental issue came to place, so the creation of digital generators was a matter of time. Such generators are a perfect match for electronics, which are hypersensitive to the electric current and also provides an adequate monitoring of the charge and usage.

Need something nice and quiet? This little stylish thing is just for you. It fits in perfectly with all of the possible restrictions in parks and camping sights over the noise level, you can sleep tight and the loud noise won’t bother you and your family over the night.4 times quieter than traditional generators, pretty convenient if you will consider buying this machine.

Completelyapproved by EPA.

Reduction of emission is also an important part of creating a high-performance, and with nickel alloy coat (Nikasil) you’reBoily turns into a Porsche of generators world, but cists way less than a car.

We already mentioned that this main feature is a steady, perfect current. You can connect any sensitive device, any gadget. Inner technologies allow the current to be normal, reducing any possible power jumps and protecting your devices.

Also this generator is incredibly smart. You can go on with your daily live and let the brain of it do all of the control. It will regulate the speed, fuel levels and oil levels by itself, and you won’t need to worry one bit. So you will be covered when you need to be, so this is another bonus.

As for the warranty you are getting two years of it, and there are a lot of Service Centers all around the United States. Also their support team is always there and ready to help you at any given time. We liked this machine, because we decided to go for a camping spree. But we have a suspicion that the warranty will just lay there without any use.

This is pretty much all you need for powering small home appliance, RV or air conditioners. Also this small thing can power pumps, microwaves and some construction tools. And why is it capable of doing so? Well, inverter generators provide steady current, so you can connect any device to it and use them with no problem.

This generator is perfection for those who have some issues with fuel. It shows small appetite for fuel, can run for 9 hours at a one fourth of the entire tank. And in general you will be able to keep moving on without any refills for quite some time. It has a smart electronics to maintain the same amount of fuel on board.

Yamaha EF2800i

pic01

We often face the question of balance between quality and price. So far, Yamaha maintained its leadership in their segment of the market and today’s topic is no exception. If you are looking for a closer look on Yamaha EF2800i then you came to the right place. Why do we need generator in the first place? Well, for example you have a power down, that makes your whole house freeze and you were in the middle of something important. Sure thing, you would be happy to unfreeze your home and finish things you have been doing. Where else you might use a generator, you might ask? Well, we all are social beings, and garden parties, weddings and so on are one of the ways of getting together. And as you can imagine, garden party means no outlets and steady current included, so this is another moment when generator comes to rescue. As for us, we live in the northern part of US, this means, that power outages are a common visitors in our region. Surely, we want to be ready for such occasions and so we bought a generator.

Yamaha EF2800i Review

pic02

 

Number one reason why we chose Yamaha EF2800i is the running time, which is abou 7 hours of constant work at a full load. But surely, you can make it last longer (up to 15 hours) if you set the load to one fourth of the general capacity. For comparison we tried powering chainsaw, router and vacuum cleaner all at the same time, and then added conditioner in RV and well…it did just fine. Our test has shown zero problems in such load for this generator, so this will be one of the reasons why we recommend it.

In some states, such as California, special attention is drawn to the problem of pollution and environmental friendliness, thus Yamaha made this model CARB compliant, which means that you can sell this unit in California. This is actually good news, because you are not only receiving a steady working machine with high maintenance, but also a friendly to nature device, which add a few pluses to karma in general.

There is 2800 watts in board and an AC output to add. As a note to self, count the entire appliance you are planning to use, add each of powers they use, so you won’t overwork your generator. If you are lacking some power, then consider buying another model, because it might turn into a problem in most unexpected moment.

If you are planning connecting sensitive devices to your engine, then we have more good news. As you already know, inverter generator means, that the current that this machine uses is one of the steady kind, because the transformation from AC to DC goes within the generator and provides you clean electricity with no jumps which can harm or burn your gadgets.

As for the specs you will be pleased as well: compact dimensions (15.6” W x 19.2” L x 16.7” H) and a decent weight of 64 lbls to match. As for the tank, the capacity is more than respectable for its size: 3gallons. As a bonus there is 3 years of industrial warranty to come with it, which we did not use at all.

pic04

If you are a bit stingy on financial behalf, this generator will meet your needs with no hesitation, because it allows reduction of fuel usage, and it is very vey quite. Trust me, when going out for camping or making a special event, nice background without noise is one of the keys for comfortable time passing.

Only con that we found out was a bit harsh in the price, because it is not the cheapest one out there. But, if you look around your local retailers, you might stumble upon a good deal. But even so, keep in mind, that this is an invertor generator, thus the price on similar models are high as well. But if you need quality it is okay to pay a bit more, right?
