Important Generator Features to Consider:


Overhead valve engines are both common and desirable in generator engines because they are generally quieter, cleaner and more dependable over the long haul than pushrod engines (pushrod engines have valves on the side). Look for engines that offer safety features such as low oil shutdown and circuit breaker protection. These features can help extend the life of your generator and will improve performance in the long run.

An hour meter can help you gauge how long the engine has been running which can help you schedule maintenance and estimate fuel usage.

Starting Mechanisms

Emergency generators usually come equipped with either a recoil or electric start and a very few may come with both (the Gale Force 8500E by Pentagon Tool comes equipped with both) ... the recoil starter in that case, becomes the "backup" starter if the electric starter doesn't have enough juice to operate. Electric starts are most convenient, of course, but you do have to keep the battery charged to take advantage of it; starting the generator periodically is usually enough to accomplish that.


If you are not interested in purchasing a standby generator but still want the power of a mid-range model, you might want to consider the portability of your unit. Some, but not all generators are offered with a portability or "wheel kit": generally a set of wheels to mount on one end, two "legs" or a peg stand and a set of handles for the other. Once installed, the unit can be picked up and moved like a wheelbarrow. This is the case with the Gale Force 8500E.

Determining Your Emergency Generator Needs

Generators are simple, powerful animals ... they use an engine to power a generator head that produces electricity for your emergency or remote needs. This electricity is measurable by voltage and watts; voltage is analogous to the width or possible pressure of a water stream and wattage is the amount of water flowing at any given time.

You should know what your voltage needs are as well as your wattage needs and then choose a generator that will supply about 15-20% MORE than what you'll require to avoid overloads, ensure long life for your generator and provide you with all the power you need until you're back online.

When you're determining your wattage needs, first it's important to know that running wattage and surge wattage are two different things.

Running (sometimes also called "rated wattage"), or continuous wattage is the wattage drawn as any device runs normally. Surge wattage, or peak wattage is the wattage drawn to start a device, an depending on the device, this can be as much as 2 or 3 times the running wattage number. Your generator should be rated high enough to run all the devices you need to run and accommodate the surge wattage needed to start up the device with the heaviest peak draw needs. Since you probably won't be starting up multiple devices at once when you're using your generator, choose your heaviest surge need and add it to the total of your running load to determine the size generator you require.

Wattage Calculation

If your devices happen to list their needed power draws in amps, rather than watts, you can convert easily using the following formula:

Watts=Amps x Volts

Bear in mind that typical household plugs are powered by 110V or 120V. To help you calculate your running wattage needs, please refer to the list below, which contains some common wattage needs.

Appliance/Tool Wattage

Electric Blanket 80
Ceiling Fan 130
Dehumidifier 800
Refrigerator 725
Sump Pump 600
CPU and Monitor 125
Well pump (deep) 750

Our Recommendation

For the most bang for your buck in terms of dependability, running time and power, we recommend the Gale Force 8500E (comes with a wheel kit, recoil and electric starts and an hour meter...) or Gale Force 8500E by Pentagon Tool. These generators are ultra-dependable and you cannot find better service ANYWHERE.

Gen-cords and Extension Cords

Emergency generators are usually positioned outside of your house and then gen-cords or extension cords are run inside to power appliances, lights, ventilation, etc. Gen-cords, or generator cords, are all weather cords that plug into the 20 or 30 amp outlet on your generator and can then be fed into where you need power. A gen-cord's line is split at one end into four 120V outlets, so you can either plug appliances into the generator cord directly, or use additional extension cords from the splits.

Whenever you are using gen-cords or extension cords it is of paramount importance that you make sure that you are using a cord that is properly rated for your application. If you have a four-pronged outlet (30 amp) you'll want a matching 4-prong gen-cord, and if you have a 20 amp 3-pronged outlet, choose a 3-pronged 20 amp cord.

Do not use extension cords that are not rated W-A or W for all weather to run from your generator to the indoors, for instance. Extension cords should be able to carry the power that an appliance or tool is drawing and if they cannot, you run the risk of causing a fire.

Extension cords in the U.S. are rated using the American Wire Gauge (AWG) System, and the larger the wire, the smaller the AWG number, so a 12 gauge cord can accommodate higher wattage draws than a 14 gauge, for instance. Also bear in mind that the current carrying capacity of a cord will decrease the further away the source is from the appliance or draw; if you are going to be using more than one appliance on one extension cord, you will need to add the wattages of your items together to correctly determine whether you are using the proper sized cord.

Never back feed electricity directly into your house: this happens when electricity is fed back into a power line an then through a transformer ... this can potentially injure or kill power workers who may be working to restore your power.

Safety Considerations

If you own or are considering the purchase of an air-cooled generator, you must be sure to locate the generator in a well-ventilated area because a build-up of carbon monoxide can cause serious injury or death. Carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless, so generators should not be used in an enclosed area of an RV, a garage or shed, etc.

To prevent electric shock, you shouldn't operate air-cooled generators in open, wet conditions, around running or standing water, or allow snow to fall directly on the generator. In most cases, you should try to locate your air-cooled generator beneath an overhang, awning, or other open-sided structure with a roof.

As with any tool or piece of power equipment, use common sense when operating; don't operate when drunk or under the influence of drugs, try to minimize any traffic involving small pets or children around the generator, never refuel while the generator is running, etc.

Perhaps most importantly, know the limits of your generator: don't overload or use improper cords that are not suited to your needs.
