For anyone interested in or needing a generator at a good price

check out the link below!!!
 
 
I work for Stanley Black & Decker which owns Porter Cable  as well as Dewalt tools.  Corporate decided to abolish the Porter Cable line of generators since they are redundant to Dewalts'.  The decidion was made to clearance them using eBay's 'Buy it Now' feature and includes free shipping to ConUS!  They have their full warranties and will be supported parts wise for the next 10 years, so if you need a generator for the house or cabin this might be the deal your looking for!

15KW!!! Should run the WHOLE house including Central AC!!!
Thats a deal for sure!  Even if it doesn't have autostart and auotmatic transfer switching!
Generacs are good but pricey!  i don't think that one is pricey at all for 2200!

After Hurricane Ike 2 years ago I lost power for only 8 hours, barely got it cranked up.  But a good friend was out of power for 4 1/2 weeks so I loaned it to him and it ran 24/7 and powered 1/2 his house and made it at least bearable for his wife and kids.
 
Most people down here are putting in (reference buddy up above) or building it into the house to have a natural gas or propane powered 65 KW or 70 KW with automatic switches.
 
I'm still poor boying it compared to them.  It takes a lot of generator to start stuff like refridgerators and central AC, not as much to run them, just start them.  I can plug it into the 220 welding plug in the garage and have it back-feed the panel (main off) to run select items.

WOW must have some big houses out that way!  65KW is 282Amps at 230VAC and will run everything in a standard 250 service house at eh same time!!
 
Yours is 65Amps @ 230VAC which will run a 4 ton AC unit no problem.  Thats about a 3000sqft house.  As long as you don't have a lot of AC motor starting all the time yours should be fine to run the whole house with the AC off!

I don't understand why they need houses that big!  Mines 1750sqft 3 bdrm with a basement and cost me a fortune to heat and cool!!!  I can't imagine what a 3000 footer must cost!!!

Lived in a 1600 sq ft house for 32 years and raised 3 kids.  Now when someone comes to the front door my standard greeting is " Welcome to my offshore boat and South Texas deer lease!", both of which I had to get rid of to afford this house.  It is amazing how much more money you have when all the kids are gone and out of college.
 
When planning this house I kept asking "How come we have to have 3 living rooms, the Parlor, the Great Room and the Play room?".  When she countered with "How come we have to have 5 car garages?", what can you do but compromise?  All those garage are full of my junk!
 
Anyway housing is cheap here in Houston, had the lot for 20 years and am in construction (lots of stuff cheap or free).
 
But the generator won't run all 3 of my AC's or very much of the 400 AMP service.
 
BTW 6500 sq ft electrical bills can hit $800.00 a month during the Houston summers, don't ask me how I know.  Roll Eyes

Is that all? $800???  Electric to keep my 1750 sqft comfortable regularly hit $250 in summer months and come this January they are deregulating.  cost is supposed to increase around 70% like it did in Baltimore last year.  I had planned on putting a 5KW grid based solar panel system on my house until the bottom dropped out of its value and I couldn't get financing this year.

Housing is cheap down there. I don't think my in-laws even count their house as an asset...and it's pretty nice in a decent neighborhood. Up here, it's heating bills we worry about. We just moved into a house with AC and I imagine will use it about 10 days each summer. Nights are cool enough that you can leave all the windows in the house open and then shut off the downstairs mid-morning.

I occasionally remind my mother-in-law that what they really need for Houston hurricanes is to keep a sidearm in the house. I recommended she go shopping with another son-in-law who's a Houston cop.
