Any cheapo home store or contractor generator will work to "give ya amps" . You can run your table saw like mad with no worries at all.
BUT there are some downsides.
The inverters in those units are NOT designed to provide clean filtered power to your electronics (like your refrigerator, air conditioner, surround sound radio, LCD TV, Gas Furnace (yes it has a computer), Oh were you planning on using a computer or DVD player?). While they might work for a while; you will definitely have interference issues while they do. Bars, "tearing", and static on your LCD TV will be the least of your problems.
Did I mention noise? Yea you will be on top of mount Everest but camping with hearing protectors on all the time is no fun either.
I know you were put out about how long the thread got, but there is a lot of good information there.
