I want to get a generator for my house, specifically for the fridge, sump pump, radio, and a few lights.
I specifically want a propane genny, since propane is easier/safer to store, and I can also use it on my outdoor grill for cooking.
But most generators I've seen, either in catalogs or online or in stores are gasoline...or if they are propane, they are either too small or really, really large...
I found some info on this site about the value of propane genny's, but no really specifics about brands/models.

Here is one I found in the Heartland catalog:

I know most of Heartland's products are not "top quality", but does anyone know about this item? Or any other propane genny that is about the same capacity?

I don't see the generators there, just the conversion kits to go from one fuel to another...

Hmmm, I thought it did...oh well.....maybe find a name brand genny and get the coversion kit for it. I didn't see to many specs on the one you are looking at. But I would be curious what the sound level is. If I had to have a genny running for a long time , I would want the quietest one I could afford. Plus , if you need to find parts, a name brand could be $$ better spent.



just my .02

here's a site to look at...they have many different generators and kits.:thumb:

oops, guess I should add the link

I just bookmarked this site a couple of days ago. I'm going to get a conversion kit that will allow my generator to be converted from gasoline to propane or natural gas.

I currently have this water cooled propane/gas generator set up in urban zombie ville. It is quiet, reliable & electric start. Covers all my electricity needs.

Yup, read that thread already, but there was no details about specific brands/modelsw, except for someone saying that they used an Onan propane generator....

Nope, the system won't let me see this ^^^ thread...maybe it needs some special permissions? I certainly have more than 5 posts for reading/posting permissions...
