I really think you'll be happy with it. You get the 2000? $479 plus $50 or so for extended warranty is a steal IMO. Use ethanol free gas and stabilizer for long periods of inactivity and I think you'll satisfied with your purchase...

Do the HF ones have a fuel shut off? I don't remember. If they do use it and run it out of fuel anytime it is going to sit unused for a day or more. If it doesn't have a shutoff install one if it is possible.

I think the predator is actually built by Honda isn't it? I don't think Honda builds actual generators only the engine that turns them...the generator itself is probably made by generac or someone...but I could be bad wrong.

re: 2020 Tailgating Adjustments
You can drain tank and carb by turning switch to run and opening a screw valve on bottom of carb if you want. I just use ethanol free gas and stabilizer in mine to not hafta worry about having the unit ready to go if I need it. I will drain if not used in last 6months but having to run to a store to get fresh gas can be a hassle if power is out in local area and c-stores/filling stations are without power too.

Never any prob. with mine, starts everytime if battery is ok. so imma take my chances...

Not a Honda but for the money and the reliability I'm good with the Predator brand.

Get extended warranty from Harbor Freight.

Because most of the crap they sell is from China and breaks after 2-3 uses

re: 2020 Tailgating Adjustments
Thanks. Yes that is the one I ordered. Good advice on the gas. I will try to run it out when I can. I always do this with my small outboards and they crank first or second pull for years.

For less than $500 if it lasts 5 years you are ahead of the game! I have known people who have them and swear by 'em. I have a couple of Hondas and to be honest other than the extra $600 I don't think there is any difference in them...I know they won't outlast 2 of the HF ones and if they do they won't do it by much....
