Re: Generator to run 6000btu window ac
I have both a cheap 1000 (advertised) watt 2 stroke generator and a 3500 watt (actual) 4 stroke generator. both are loud, but in different ways. The bigger genny is a steady
"ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRRR" while the small one pulses..."RINGDADINGDADINGDING..DaDINGDINGDING..DADINGDINGDI NG...da......RINNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGG!!!!! DADINGDINGDINGDING...." The 2-stroke bothers me more, because it always sounds a little bipolar, like it is not sure whether it is going to seize up and quit or whether it is going to go tearing across the boatyard and start dryhumping a passing Vespa. i always feel like i have to keep an eye on it when i use it, while the 4-stroke generator is just like a bass player- dependable, dull loud, and just keeps doing the same thing until made to stop.
