Reference Harbor Freight Inverter Gen on sale:
Web research of this generators shows that it is identical to an ETQ generator and a reviewer stated 59 db at 1,000 watt load.
As with any Chinese generator, the rated output is optimistic. I did some additional research on the harbor freight generator and it is more of a 1800-1900 watt generator at sea level and about 1600 watts at altitude.
All inverter gen's are "loud" at full load. I don't know about you but if I'm running my air conditioning, I'm not hearing much outside anyway. The a/c in my fiver is quite loud with all of that noise of air being pushed out of hte ductwork.
