    Does anyone use, or should I say how many of you use generators on their trailers, and what wattage would you recommend?

    This will be used on trailer only, so I don't need something to power New York City!

    Would like to run blade grinder, a couple lights, maybe a 1/2 inch drill, but not all at the same time. :waving:

    This is the actual one i have.. I'm telling you.. . its a nice machine.. it sayes it only runs 2.5 hours at half load.. but i doubt thats true.. I had an electric leaf blower and a big light hooked up to it.. (don't ask why) and it ran well over 5 hours on one tank.. So, if your looking to buy something just for a trailer (i use it for my home sometimes when the power goes out) then it's the perfect thing. Make sure you get a honda engine.. If you have any questions about it, PM me. The great thing about this is that it has the bars around it to protect it.. will work good in a trailer.. trust me..
