    This system was put together for $1,700. when you don't consider a generator. If you already have a generator, this is a great way to go for a small "backup" system for emergencies. Lowdown3

    Some (if not many) of you have found a need to use a generator to keep your refrigerators and freezers going during power outages. I'm trying to come up with a plan. Should the power go out, is it necessary to run your generator 24/7 or should you run it in intervals? As long as the...

    Saw a posting elsewhere on propane generators - interested in what people here think about them. The 3500W pictured below will supposedly run for 20.5 hours at 1/2 load on one 20lb tank. Cost $599.

    Go to a Auto Parts House of your choice. Ask for a 1970 Ford F150 alternator. It should not cost you more than $100 for a 80amp or 120 amp alternator. Take it home. Find some bolts or buy them and secure the alternator to your choice of material so that there is about 3 inches from the bottom...

    Honda makes a dual generator set-up. This means the two generators can be connected to almost double the output. Each generator can put out 2000 watts. Connected together, they put out somewhere around 3500 watts. I think some wattage is lost in the cascade, so its less the 2,000 + 2,000...

    After hurricane Rita passed through here a year and a half ago - there were stories going around of peoples generators going off in the middle of the night, by the time they got outside all they saw was the tail lights of the truck leaving with their genny in the bed. Do not let this happen...

    Generators - to me is just something to extend the life of your frozen foods. So, how much fuel should you keep stored? This depends on how much food you have in your freezer. Lets say you have enough food in the fridge and freezer to feed your family for about a week. Then you should keep...
