    You want yourself a big ass generator if you plan on putting a transfer sw. on it unless you just hit major items. Big bucks I think, I have never done one.

    I've installed a couple of the Gentran manual transfer switches.
    They also have a smaller 6 circuit 30 Amp. Just my 2 cents, but they seem to work well.

    Generator Transfer Switch
    Model 10-7500
    10 Circuit 30 AMP Unit
    Completely Pre-wired For Easy Installation
    Double Throw Switch Eliminates Power Backfeeding To The Utility Pole
    Allows For Two Double Pole 20 & 30 AMP Circuits
    Panel Type:
    Generator Transfer Switches
    Voltage:
    240 Volts
    Wattage:
    2000 watts
    Amperage:
    30 amps

    I am happy with my cheap coleman, if I were a contractor who used a generator as a tool every day, I would prolly opt for a small diesel like a kubota or yammar or possibly a honda or onan gasoline BUT I'm just a homeowner who uses my generator for backup power when the utility lines are out. My coleman is 6250surge, 4600 continuous with 10hp tecumsa 5 gallon tank, runs 9hours @ 50% load. one of my projects is to run a permenent exaust thru my basement wall to out side, until then, it has about 15 feet of flexible exause I roll out the door when I use it. I change the oil once a year and run a tank of gas thru it once a year, I keep the tank full with stabil all the time and usually have a 5 gallon can of gas with stabil kicking around at leas partially full (on hand to mix gas for chain saw, my 2 stroke royobi drill etc.) I paid about $800 from Northern and it always starts on the third pull, I have run is as long as 5 days continuous but usually only a few hours , not very often do I even use it some years the only use is the tank of fuel when I do the oil change.

    The electric meter on my house is a demand meter so I used that to determine the max demand I would need. I had 200 amp cut over switch installed between my meter and main panel cord from that plugs into my twistlock on generator, I can use all circuits as normal when on generator, the max demand I have seen is about 55-60% capacity of my generator, and average demand is only 25-30% on generator load.

    Works slick, I even run my computers (with ups as line conditioner) I think the generator transfer panels that limit you to necessary circuits are worthless ... but I use gas for cooking, hot water, dryer etc.

    Glad to see that you use the UPS as a line conditioner. But there is other equipment that you should be careful about using while on a generator such as HDTV, DVD players, etc., they are fairly voltage sensitive and can be damaged by a larger motor load starting (well pump, fridge, second freezer) and momentarily dropping the output voltage of the generator until it can wind up to the load requirments. This is where those panels come in nice especially for smaller generators.

    yes, I have thought about getting a UPS for my sound system, but I can just as easy use my computer ups (1400va) cause it's unlikely I'd be using both at the same time.

    I have actually discovered that my power is much cleaner when I turn every light on in the house to get the demand to about 50% capacity of the generator, with mimimal load, the UPS beeps quite often, once I get it on, about the only time it beeps is when the well pump kicks on.

    I have good surge protectors on almost every appliance in my home,,,, I lernt the hard way, a nearby pole was knocked over in a windstorm a few years ago, it didn't knock out my power... but it slapped around some electric wires outside my house. it zapped all my circuits with 220, at the time my office was in my home, the only things that were protected good were the computers, luckily my sound system and home electronics were turned off, it fried a photocopier, my phone system and every thing else that had electronic components that happened to be turned on at the time, everything was replaced by insurance though

    SURGE SUPPRESSORS,

    Surge suppressors only truely protect agianst voltage spikes usually over about 135 Volts, they do nothing when the Voltage drops (Brown-out condition) what they will do during this brown-out is if the have a built in breaker, is trip the breaker on current overload (when your voltage drops the current goes up) but this takes about ten seconds or so for the breaker to trip. During this time is when damage to sensitive equipment can happen. Surge suppressors also have a light on them, if this light every goes out replace the surge suppressor as they are a one shot deal do to the sacrificial electronic part inside that stops the surge.

    To answer the question, that's a pretty good price for that generator.
    I have a Yamaha (big surprise there, eh) 4,600 industrial grade generator that i use mainly for my portable welder. It has 2 phase and i made a cord that plugs into the dryer plug in the house if the power goes out. I'm sure it's not the safest and legal way, but it's effective. I turn the main breaker off before hooking anything up. It'll run the furnace, frig, well pump (220 submersible), cooking stove, lights, and tv's pretty much on command. If the well pump comes on when using the stove, it does trip the breaker on the generator tho. I just have no hot water as it's not powerfull enuff to run that. We seem to loose our power down here more in the summer than the winter now and unless it's a huricane, the power is only out for a few hours at the most
    It is nice to have it as backup

    Your definately right about it not being legal by Ma. and National electrical code. But I won't tell.

    The disco bus, eh? haha
    Oh crap, where do i start, lesson learned, don't buy a vehicle that's been sitting in a garage unused for 5 years and expect to just get in and go
    4 new tires in the rear (they were dry rotted), new brake lines front to back, brake calipers, 3 universal joints, new exhaust from the manifold to the mufflers, fuel pump, radiator hoses, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, thermostat, transmission shift control valve and new vacume line going to it + full service, electrical nightmare partially fixxed thanks to ssg, thats about it so far.
    I've done all the work myself so far (except for some electrical stuff) so it hasn't been all that costly
    I'm making money with it on weekends so it's kinda paying for itself
    I'm hoping it will be done by stonnerstock, repanneled the inside, paint what needs to be painted, tile the floor, and maybe rig up some lights

    Oh, and i found out that the RI DOT requires lettering of some sort on commercial vehicles with a box body so i got these really cool stickers that are 5' long with 8" lettering that says YAMAHA with "factory racing" just below the yamaha

    Its really not that bad on fuel, i've filled the 50 gallon tank twice so far and the fuel milage was just over 9mpg. I prolly could get it up around 10 or 11 but i like the noise the quadrabog makes with 7.4 litres of vacume when i hit the trottle

    I been hauling shit around in it for my weekend warrier jobs, saving miles and abuse from my new truck.
