Re: Costco - Smarter Tools 2000W Gen by Yamaha

Chances are, after running a genny all night in an achorage for a night or two, carbon monoxide will not be a problem.

Try a couple of cofamo or hella high cfm fans and a windscoop before pulling the pin on the AC grenade. you may be surprised at how comfy it is.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Re: Costco - Smarter Tools 2000W Gen by Yamaha

I have a Ryobi 2800 I picked up from Home Depot for $599.

I can't verify the db's at various levels of load because I don't carry a meter to do so, I can say I've used both the Honda 2000 and my 2800 - the 2800 is at a minimum no louder.
It' also capable of 2200 watts continuous, 2800 peak, has economy mode that can either charge my batt's, run my microwave, or run my 7200 btu air conditioner.
None of that can be done by the Honda in eco mode, and it's 60% of the cost.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.

Re: Costco - Smarter Tools 2000W Gen by Yamaha

Got a smartphone? If not, steal an iphone. There are plenty of free "db meter" apps for all of them. Calibration of course is a whole other issue, but the basic equipment is commonly out there. Frequency response will differ from a real db meter as well, but again...good enough for gummint work.

Re: Costco - Smarter Tools 2000W Gen by Yamaha

Yeah, putting a generator - and who knows what else - in a dink, is certainly the option of choice for the locals in Marathon...

Probably the #1 reason why the ONLY time I'll anchor in Boot Key Harbor is to ride out a front... It's always a relief when one finally does arrive, and the wind and rain finally drowns out the cacophony of all those "whisper quiet" and "virtually silent" gensets... :-)
