Amazon is having a lightning deal on the Briggs & Stratton 2200 Watt Generator for $529. Anyone have this generator?

Any idea who makes them, so many cheap knock off's who want's to get burned.

Thanks for the heads up on the sale.

Not sure who's making them (assuming same co) but I saw a white one 2 days ago that a friend has. It's 2 years old and has no issues so far. Light and quiet, and it has "smart mode" to save on fuel (idles down when no load). What I don't understand about these makers is that you can buy 2 x 2200 watt gens and parallel them for 4400 watts total for same basic price as you can buy a 3000 watt unit.

Seems pretty $$ for a 2200 watt unit

I haven't had good luck with newer BS engines.

Home Depot has a 5,500 watt Westinghouse for < $650

For the price, not bad generator for warm temperatures, however when it's colder B&S become a pita to start.
The Generac brand from HD isn't bad(Tecumseh engines).

Went back and checked the brand of the one I mentioned above. It is an Atima generator. Evidently they have increased in value substantially as he said he paid a little over five hundred 2 years ago and current price on amazon is 799. But that Briggs n Straton unit you are looking at is 625 on amazon. Evidently amazon's prices are not some of the best to be found now.

A buddy I do race weeks with has a 8 year old Champion 2000 watt inverter like this https://www.walmart.com/ip/Champion-Power-Equipment-73536i-2000-Watt-Stackable-Portable-Inverter-Generator/23530684?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222227017107012&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=61136548616&wl4=pla-108549403016&wl5=9012116&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=23530684&wl13=&veh=sem. He has been running it about 300-400 hours a year for 8 years. It is IMHO the closest thing to my Honda eu2000i on the market at half the price. I personally have 4 genny's now. A Honda EX 350, a Honda eu2000i inverter, a Black Max 2100 inverter and a Champion 4000. If I ever shopped for another this is what I would buy.
