How do you pick the right Predator power generator for you?

Which Predator generator you buy depends on your needs. To better analyze those needs in terms of the capabilities of Predator generators, consider the following factors:

  • Fuel type - Most Predator generators for sale run on regular gas, but not all. So be sure to check what type of fuel a particular Predator generator you're considering buying uses before you buy it. Gas engine tank size is also a worthwhile factor to consider as it tells you how long the unit will run before you need to refuel it.
  • Output - Different models of Predator generators range in the amount of power they are capable of outputting, from 1,600 watts to over 10,000 watts.
  • Design - You can buy handheld Predator generators and ones on wheels. The larger the generator you buy, the more important it is that it has wheels. Another factor of design to consider is how many power outlets are available on a given unit, taking care to note how many are 120V outputs and how many are 240V outputs.
When to buy a used Predator generator

You can save a bit of money on a Predator generator by buying one used. There are certain considerations and drawbacks to be aware of before you buy a used Predator generator on eBay. The considerations to make involve the condition of the unit. Is it in full working condition? How much wear and tear has it undergone? How much use has it already undergone? Ideally, a used Predator generator is in perfect working order, has minimal wear and tear, and was rarely used. The key drawback to be aware of, even with a used Predator generator meeting all those conditions, is that you will not get the benefits of the manufacturer's warranty that comes with all new Predator generators.
