Super quiet generator?

Harbor freight is having ANOTHER of its big blowout sales. Advertised this week is a super quiet 7000 watt generator rated @ 76db!

If I was camped next to that, the only time it would be super quiet is after I cut the fuel line!

The thing I found you have watch out for on sound ratings is the distance that the manufactures make the reading at. The cheap off shore ones in the specs read as being very quiet but they take the readings a VERY! long way away. The good ones ( Honda, Yamaha) take readings few feet away.You have to read the fine print in the specs!

Like You said, 76 ain't quiet.
Best way to find out who's quiet is to go to a college game. Folks usually have all kinds of gens there. I'd go by a tailgate setup and just pause and listen.
The quietest I've heard we're the Yamaha inverters. They are pricey, though.
