Inverter Technology - Creates Quiet, Clean Power
Inverter generators utilize a different type of alternator than standard generators to generate AC power. The raw power produced is converted from DC to AC power by a computer controlled inverter module. The engine speed varies depending on the electrical demand, which significantly reduces noise and fuel consumption compared to a standard portable generator.
The end result is a portable generator with reduced weight and size and power that is ultra-clean and capable of safely powering sensitive electronics.
Generac iX800 Portable Inverter Generator
Generac's iX800 inverter technology takes the raw power produced by the generator and passes it through a special electronic microprocessor to provide clean and stable power, safe for computers and other sensitive electronic devices.

Still cranking first pull and chugging along at 55 hours. Either this thing is getting quieter as it beaks in or I can't hear it anymore... I've since added a cheap inductive timer to better track usage. I changed the oil at 50 hours with Rotella T6, old oil was surprisingly clean. Cleaned/oiled the air filter as well. It was used for a couple weekend camping trips here in Cali since fires are a no-no. Hot plate, task lighting, and everyone's electronics that "needed" charged ;) (~1800w total) at the site no problem. Lovin' this thing! No issues with the primer bulb as the tape flap is still hanging on.
Generac finally replaced my leaking unit. Hours of work on my part. The new unit idles quite different. On normal mode it idles significantly lower and flucuates up and down. In the economy mode, it simply idles even lower. The first unit seemed to idle normal (who knows) or high. In economy mode it flucuated up and down as stated in the manual. The electrical outlets are different. The first unit had commercial 120v outlets - one plug vertical, one horizontal. I spent $50 for a commercial extension cord. The new unit has regular (parallel) plugs. Therefore I'll need to buy an adaptor. Unbelievable. If there are any more problems I simply will pay someone who knows what they are doing (Generac's service people do not) or throw the unit out. Stay away from this unit. And stay away from Generac.
June, 2010 - Unit was defective out of box. Significant oil leak from engine even when not running. Took to 2 authorized Generac service shops. Still leaks. Leak is where 2 aluminum machine surfaces come together. Still trying to get resolution. Generac customer service fair at best. Takes considerable time to reach a human being. The unit already looks 2 years old due to the handling by the repair people and I've never used it. Generac has still not offered to replace. They "don't make the motors". A great excuse. I will contact Amazon corporate office if necessary to tell them not to sell this company's products and file in small claims court if necessary against Generac. Please consider other manufacturers' if you are looking for a small generator. I may be contacted at nfre at comcast dot net for photos of leak. Thank you.
The included warranty also states "This warranty shall not apply to the following: Generac portable generators that utilize non-General replacement parts." This is in clear violation of the 1975 Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, specifically the portion not allowing product "tie-ins". (It's a violation of consumer rights to void a warranty simply for using third-party replacement parts; in this case, could be the replacement of a broken pull-start cord/handle, a lost fuel cap, or installation of a new fuel filter.)
They might not -enforce- these harsh warranty policies, but looking at the number of 1 star reviews (35% at the time of this writing), it seems likely, as most of the complaints are warranty-related.
I can't support a company that advertises a "Two Year Warranty" on the box, but whose actual warranty policy doesn't cover (some of) what's in the box for even one single day.

Perfect for the campsite.
I use it to inflate those big air mattresses while camping on the island.
Quiet and lightweight.
This is a super value, and its dead reliable. After running it for six (6) days in a row for power, its a life saver. Read morePublished 1 month ago by C. Bouschor
It said that it is "Super Quiet" It is not. I also do not like the gas priming bulb. It is subject to fail. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Richard
