portable generator

I've been wanting a new generator for some time but could never seem to find one at the right price. My current generator is 2.2KW bought in 1990 to run lights and a weed eater at my hangar, back when I flew ultralights. Good, bad, or ugly I picked up a Predator 8750 with 8750 Peak and 7000 run Watts. It has a 420cc engine and should run for 10 plus hours on a tank of gas. Harbor freight had them priced at $499.99 for their Parking Lot Sale this weekend. I checked Amazon and their price for the Predator 8750 was $1055 + $99 to ship. I did buy a wheel kit due to the weight (235 lbs). This was another Keystone cops event just getting it out of the truck and on it's wheels. I'll let you know if it runs when I get the gas and oil installed. Forgot to mention that it has a pull start plus an electric starter. Wonder where I could get a small battery .......... NO NOT MY BIKE!!!
