I purchased a new Kipor (McCulloch FG2000TC 2000 Watt Digital) over the Internet from Tool King for a total, including shipping, for $508.
Sportsman’s Guide wanted an additional almost $100 for the same thing because they charge an outrageous shipping/handling charge.
Tool King charged $29.49 shipping. So shop around before you purchase.
I had a Yamaha 1000W and it would barely run the AC in the Scamp
, but nothing else during the AC time so that is why I purchased the 2000W. I haven't used it yet and hope it will run the AC better than the Yamaha.
If you want a really inexpensive generator look in www.heartlandamerica.com
for the 1000W 2-cycle unit.
Because McCulloch is a name that has been around almost forever in North America I feel secure and sure that should I ever require service I will be able to find a service center.
For the price of this unit I can run it until it don't run anymore and then get a new one and it will still be less expensive than purchasing a Yamaha or Honda.
