How much does a generator cost?
Whether you want one at the beach, the campsite, an event outdoors or at home in case of an emergency, keeping a generator on standby is an investment that can be invaluable when you need it. There are plenty to choose from depending not only on how much power you require, but the quality or sensitivity of that power as well. Here are a just a few of the generators we offer to give you an idea of what you can expect for your money.
The Briggs & Stratton P2200 is our entry level inverter generator, providing great reliability in a small unit. As an inverter, it costs more than a traditional standard or industrial generator but that’s because the technology is better and they supply a more reliable flow of electricity. This makes them best suited for sensitive electronics such as laptop and phone chargers, and perfect for social applications because they run far quieter than their traditional counterparts.
The equivalent standard/industrial generator in terms of power output, the Dunlite-Honda is designed to be a handy option for tradesmen and homeowners that occasionally need to power tools or non-sensitive electronics on-the-go. While they are cheaper than the inverters, in smaller sizes they can be limited by their capability to run larger pieces of equipment. They are however, a great entry level option.

Moving up to a mid-range standard/industrial generator, these Hondas are available in models that output between 3.6kW and 5kW; so depending on your application there are a few options when it comes to price and size. These generators are what we typically expect when picturing one, and they’re great for anything from portable PA systems to lighting and even some home appliances in case of emergency.
Top of the line when it comes to inverter technology, the Honda EU70 can provide 7kW of power that you can distribute across a number of applications. Quiet for their size as well, they can be used in open spaces where you want to be able to hear what’s happening, and because they can power sensitive electronics reliably you don’t have to worry about charging laptops, phones or other equipment that requires a constant, steady flow of electricity.
We offer plenty more generators online and in-store, so if you have any questions about which size or type may be best for you feel free to get in touch. Our knowledgeable staff are more than happy to help.
