    the cord should be good up to 100 feet I think if you use a 10 gadge cord

  5. drboose says:

    I haven’t done any tests, but it seems like I can use the full power with 50ft of extension cord.

  6. Osramiko says:

    Does the cord length effect the output basically if i wanna place the generator away coz of its noise am i limited to the length of the cord?

    I too got mine at 120$. I used it casually a couple times, like in the video. Now I run 2x250watt lights, a 200 watt audio system, and a laptop on it for doing little music concerts. Sometimes it takes a bit to start the motor, but not usually. I LOVE MY GENMATE!

    Take off eh hoser.. The clutch is in the car….

    lol Good demo. I bought the el-cheapo 1200W version over at Checker Auto down here in the USSA.

    It will run my deep-freeze which you all will have no need for since it looks like you are living in a deep-freeze.

    However it also ran my Infra-Red heater (on high!) just in case you want to sit around in lawn chairs and enjoy that nice balmy evening weather! lol

    Ps. I think the heater will fit in your tobaggon otherwise take heatlamps.
