  1. Portable generator advice needed

    Since I had to redo the electric panel with the new addition, I had the contractor add a generator transfer switch and outside plug receptacle. Was planning on a new generator, but haven't gotten around to getting one yet. We had bad storms on Saturday and were without power for about 12 hours, so the generator purchase has moved to the top of the list. I'm looking for around an 8000kw unit with electric start. I love Honda's, but they are really proud of them. I have a Champion 3500kw unit for the camper and to haul around if needed that has been trouble free, but am thinking I need something better quality than that for the house. Have been looking at Generac, but they have 3 or 4 different grades of units. So I am looking for some advice on brands, grades of machines, buying from a dealer, big box store or online, etc. Should I worry about an inverter style for clean power, or is a better grade standard generator good enough? Generac makes a neat unit for Lowe's, but it is exclusive to them so what about service or parts? Thanks in advance for the advice.
