The McCulloch 5,700-watt 11 HP portable power generator with wheel kit has a 5-gallon fuel tank for longer running time during blackouts. It's powered by an efficient 11 HP OHV engine with an easy pull recoil starter. This generator shuts off the ignition when dangerously low oil levels occur, and it's enclosed in a compact protective roll cage frame.
A conveniently located on/off switch provides easy control of this generator, which provides a maximum of 5,700 watts. You'll also appreciate the large muffler that helps restrict noise, making a quiet portable generator.
Types of generators:
Generators come in two basic types: standby and portable. There also are inverters, which are not generators but may meet your needs. The source of backup power you ultimately choose will be determined by many factors, including your power generator.
Portable generators are versatile. You can use them for emergency power at home, for power in remote locations where utility power is unavailable, or for recreational purposes, like marine or camping. Portable generators are fueled by gas or diesel and include 120-volt power outlets like the ones in the walls of your home.
A standby generator is permanently installed outside your home or commercial building and wired directly into the electric system to provide power to some or all of your home's circuits during a disruption of normal utility power.
Standby generators are fueled by liquid propane or natural gas. The number of circuits to which a standby generator can provide power--and the number of appliances you can run on those circuits--is determined by the power capacity of the generator. Standby generators are about the same size as, and look similar to, a standard central air conditioner.
