Portable Generators

These traditional models are what people typically think of when they imagine a generator. Portable generators offer the most power for the cost. They also run at full speed at all times and therefore are louder than inverters and also less efficient. Portable generators work best for power outages, outdoor events, DIY projects and on job sites.

Inverter Generators

Inverter generators are more efficient and quieter than traditional generators because users can adjust the engine speed to the output needed. They also protect electronics and sensitive equipment, keeping them safe from surges. Inverter generators are ideal for power outages, camping, RVing, DIY projects, at work sites and for outdoor events.
