I just checked and it will arrive FedEX tomorrow.
FYI the guy in San Diego sells both model on EBay and I know for a fact that if you want the one with electric start you can get it for $1,000 with free shipping

If you go and check you can make an offer and looking at others they offered him $1,000 for the Boliy Pro3600SiE and he accepts it. Remember only buy the new model with the chrome gas cap NOT the black plastic one.

Here is the link


I wish I saw this before I ordered it and I could have gotton the electric start for $10 more than I'm paying now.

I have the boliy generator and it is a good genny for the money.
Mine is a 2011 model (I think), with the electric start.

The only problem I had when I first got it was the gas shut-off handle was put on wrong and it pointed to ON when it was really OFF. Needless to say it wouldn't start (glad I had the electric start model). After messing around awhile I discovered the problem and simply removed the handle, turned it and reinstalled it. Problem solved.

I have no problem running the 13,500 BTU A/C in my pop-up, but I have to turn the econo mode off (at least until the A/C starts up).

Overall I'm very happy with mine. I think they are well worth the price.

Thanks for posting the video. The Boily sounded a bit loud, but I know camcorders can increase sound levels over what they really are. Are you satisfied with the noise level of the Boily?

With or without the electric start I think you got a great deal on a generator capable of running an air conditioner.

I have a very good digital movie camera with dual microphones.
I thought it was a major difference when I turned on the economy mode.
I personally didn't think it was objectionally loud for a campground.
3 minutes into the video I turn on economy mode.

So what is the output on economy mode? If you have it set on economy mode does it ramp up according to load?

Good question. Not sure yet if I want to test it in economy mode then a large AC load. Economy mode as I have read is designed for small stable loads like lights and battery charger.

The manual says it is not designed for high loads and you must take it off of economy mode for large loads.

I see economy mode for night time TV, lights etc and conserves fuel for the whole night.

I also checked and this unit has the same engine, carb as the Yamaha EF3000iSE and the same information for the Economy switch.

I was wondering if you bought the genny for your trip to Yellowstone. I know you are staying at Grizzly RV park over the 4th, but I was wondering if you were moving into one of the park's campgrounds from there.
