I’ve read through generator discussions in previous years, I haven’t seen one this year and most don’t mention the Powerhouse by Northern Tool.
I’m considering an occasional use generator for my wheelhouse. It’s currently setup with 12V and we are fine running everything off the batteries. However, a generator would be nice for charging batteries, pizza oven, crock pot, TV, small AC unit, etc.
For something I don’t plan on using that often, I’m struggling spending $1,000 on the name brand Honda/Yamaha. I see the Powerhouse generator at Northern Tool is currently on sale for $480, Predator and others are in the same price range. I’ve owned two Predator engines (420cc), they do the trick and I run them very hard for duck hunting. The first engine did cease up after about 5-6yrs but I can basically purchase 3-4 of these engines before I come to the price of a comparable Honda.
Looking for feedback on generators used in the Minnesota cold, for ice fishing and/or hunting.
