Ryobi Ryi2000 generator

Picked up this little generator yesterday for DH's truck camper. Its pretty cool, lightweight and as quiet as the Champion 2000 that I use for the A-Frame. I would have one of these if I didnt already own a Champion. It has more starting power & can run the A/C in the A-Frame....thought I'd share with A-Frame forum for those who havent picked up a genny. This can also parallel with a second Ryobi. It weighs 51 lbs and soft sound when it runs and cost is 549- (we saved 10% more with military discount, our cost: 495-) and it has a THREE YEAR WARRANTY.....Just saying it's worth checking out. DH is a happy camper with his new genny.

DH really likes it! We had a generator pull off the other day. I hadnt run my Champion 2000i since last month so I went to pull the cord to run it. DH wheels the Ryobi to the center of the shop floor, while I carried the Champion to set next to it. We pulled cords to see whose started first & whose sounded louder. My Champion started right up. The Ryobi took a few seconds more (which I say was due to DH's unfamiliarity with it) Ryobi sounded quiet compared to Champion until I realized Champion was on Full, switched to 'Econo' and it was jist as quiet as Ryobi. Both were quiet, just hummed slightly different sound pitches. Size wise, the Ryobi is slightly taller but narower than the shorter square shaped Champion. When our pull off contest was over, DH pulled the luggge handle up and wheeled the Ryobi back to its cubby hole. It is a capable generator that has drawn no complaints this far.

Thanks for the feedback. I had my sites on a Honda until I saw this and was wondering how folks were liking them. The price is quite tempting.
