Even though Kippor manufactures the McCulloch, please do not get the model numbers and color of the unit get mixed up with the branded Kippor units. They are different in color and model numbers.

My Yellow McCulloch, Digital, FG2000 Tc that is an inverter model, 2000KW Surge and 1.5HW operating, with the "Smart Throttle, is doing just fine.

I purchased it from Tool King www.toolking.com

I figure that at 1/2 the price if and when I wear out the McCullouch I'll just go and get another one and in the long run, that will be less expensive than purchasing the Honda to begin with.

I too bought the McCulloch about a month ago for $499 at Toolking, the shipping was only $8.

It works great and based on my expected usage, I figure I can't go wrong.

I bought my Kipor KGE1000Ti on e-bay, last december, and paid U.S $340.00 + shipping for it. It's got about 50 hours, total time, right now. No problems whatsoever with it.

It's very quiet, is fuel efficient, and also is amazingly easy to start ( you need only pull the cord 6 - 8 inch, and you're in business! ).

For the price I paid for it, I'd say it's one of the best purchase, i've made so far.

I recommend it.

Yves.

I aslo got mine on eBay. (1k model)

It's over a year old, and I haven't started it in a couple months. I just went out to do so. No problems!

I am happy.

NOISY NOISY NOISY.

Everyone I've known who had a Coleman Powermate (2 people) traded theirs in for a Honda.

Jim, keep saving and buy the Honda 2000, although the Kipor is a good value and decent genset. If you plan to only use the gen. a few times a year it makes sense to buy a cheaper unit. If you plan to put some hours on the thing like we do, buy the Honda. Having owned Coleman, Onan and Brand X, the Honda portable Generators are without a doubt the very best. Friend has a 1000 from the 80's still chugging along. They just know how to make small engines and well thoughtout, quality products. My two cents and good luck with your decision.

I was unsucessfully window crank shopping yesterday and both local mom and pop RV supply stores have the Kippor gennies. They didn't have them a couple months ago, so somebody is pushing them to the stores.

Kipor makes the McCulloch Generator that is sold in the USA at www.toolking.com and you can get the 2000 Digital model for around $500. It is extremely quiet. Check the published db levels.

I found what I was looking for! A dishwasher is around 55 db and a sewing machine is 60db. So not much diff. So based on this there are a ton of inexpensive generators in the 1kw to 2 kw at various prices to be had!!!
