6000 Watt DeWalt generator/Honda Motor.


~We've lost power at least 4 times this year alone and my dad gets frustrated when the house gets freezing cold. So, he went out looking for a bigger generator than our puney 1700 watt that we'll occasionally use when we are camping with the trailer. He was looking for something in the 5000 Watt range, but of course bigger is better. Should be able to power most of the lights, fernace, kitchen fridge/freezer, garage freezer, garage doors, and a lot more...

Same model w/ specs:

Send me puny.

By all accounts, we're in for more. The most brutal and exciting winter weather in years.

If you don't send it, I'm coming up there whenever we lose power.
