    The Predator 3500 sold at Harbor freight has great reviews and costs about 7 to 8 hundred dollars. Very popular in the camping world. Check it out on you tube.

    Those Hondas are dang good. Maybe check a heavy equipment rental place like Herc or United. Might be able to buy a gently used one at a discount?

    You want a quiet inverter...Yamaha, next would be a toss up between Honda and Predator. I have a old Honda 2500 GENERATOR you can probably hear for miles:)

    The Predetors that some friends have bought to use to power their homes during the hurricanes have done good. They have Briggs and Stratton Engines.
