Amico 1000 watt brushless generator
I bought mine a year and a half ago on ebay for under a hundred bucks. They're selling them today (6/8/07) for $130.00.
I haven't done much with mine yet. I started it the same day it was delivered and it fired right up on the second or third pull. About six months ago we lost power in the neighborhood and I used it to keep the refrigerator running until they got it restored. It worked great then. I bought it for emergencies and to take camping, maybe to run a small, portable DVD player or a TV slash VCR combo, or even my laptop if I wanted to carry work with me to the lake. I haven't taken it on any camping trips yet though. The 62 decibel noise level is too annoyingly loud for tent camping. Motorhome camping, on the other hand, shows a little more promise.
The main thing I like about mine, aside from the fact that it starts up easily, is the lightweight design. At 46 pounds it's light enough to pick up and move where ever you want to move it. Set up camp, tote the generator 80 feet away and chain it to a tree and run a hundred foot cord back to the camp. It could work...
An in-tank fuel filter that can't be removed makes it impossible to visually gauge the amount of fuel left in the tank. That might not be a big deal to some but I'm one of those guys who occasionally like to know how much gas is left in the tank. It's a minor issue and so far the only complaint I have with this generator.
