Have you folks seen this? Cummins Onan 4500

Cummins Onan 4500, seems like a great deal.

Any thoughts?

With such impressive name, it's just a rebranded Chinese gen set. at 63 to 65db, a little loud too. I don't buy the 52db on their site when other sellers are higher...

With my back that 100Lbs would put me in a brace for a few months.

This is a Chinese-made clone of the Westinghouse 4500w version.
There are numerous active threads on both of them.
It's made under many different brand names.

Same with the Harbor Freight unit. Northern Tools calls theirs the powerhorse. Same unit, different colors

One difference I've seen is a 50amp parallel kit for two 4500 or a 4500 and a 2500.

How can you tell it's a Chinese made clone. Westinghouse, as well as GE products are made in China.

I'm saying that the Westinghouse 4500 and the Cummins 4500 are the same generator, just different cosmetics.
Yes, I'm well aware that Westinghouse and GE stuff are made in China. As far as I've read, the brand names were bought by Chinese corporations, some time ago. Same for Kodak and Bell and Howell.
