The 1,400-watt All Power America APG3014 surges to 2,000 watts. Its four-stroke motor runs for 9.5 hours per tank of gas at half load and its sound is estimated at 68 decibels. This budget-priced portable generator has two 120-volt outlets and a 12-volt DC outlet and comes with battery charging cables — convenient for restarting a car battery.
The Pros of this portable generator are plentiful for a 300$ purchase, the price per feature ratio is one of the good things for this portable generator. It also has a low-oil shutoff characteristic that will ensure that your engine will not overheat or seize, the engine automatically shuts off when the oil gets too low, a feature not often found among generators in this price limit. The low-oil shutoff is a good feature for those of you that are still driving the car with the “check engine light” on.
The four-cycle engine doesn’t require an oil and gas mixture and once again is very good for people that are not mechanics and makes this portable generator not difficult to use. It is also honorably lightweight, at 57 pounds, a truly portable generator that is good to use around the house.
As for the Cons, the All Power America APG3014 only comes with an one-year warranty; other portable generators come with a 2 to 3 year warranty, but also have a slightly higher price tag. Because you have to take it to an All Power America service center for repairs, it might be worth checking to make sure there’s one close to you before you buy. This can be a negative point if the nearest service center is 250 km away from your home. The last weak point would be the sound generated by this portable generator, rated at 68 decibels, it is a little bit noisier than other generators on the market.
If you’re looking for one of the smallest/cheapest generators that can still run nearly any 120V item, this is a good choice. It’s got enough power to handle starting a motor like your fridge in a power outage. This portable generator isn’t big enough for you to need wheels on them to save your back while moving it, but it is over 50lbs as you should expect with such equipment. We actually ordered this portable generator thru Northern Tools and when it was sent, it was double boxed to help minimize chances of break. I’ve had no problems with it.
When inquiring for a small generator this is what you need to get! Many of those small generators on the market are 2 strokes. Having to premix gas and have a specific can for your generator is a huge bicker, but a 4 stroke will last you longer then a 2 stroke! We would highly recommend this portable generator to anyone in need of power to run small power tools!
Owners posting reviews online give it high ratings overall 4/5 stars, but a few complain about purchaser service, and some people say their generators didn’t accomplish well from the beginning.
