There's no time like the present to prepare for volatile weather conditions. If you are thinking of getting an inverter generator in addition to a portable generator, kill two birds with one stone and simply get the XP6500E from Generac. You can power your necessities, as well as your sensitive electronics, thanks to the TruePower clean energy technology. Since generators have to be kept outside, Generac incorporated a few protective features, including a tough steel tube cradle and covered outlets. The cradle offers protection from external abuse, and the covers keep water and other environmental components out of your outlets. Generac's own OHVI engine was specifically designed to be used with generators, meaning it lasts 3 to 4 times longer than "brand name" engines. These and many more great features are what sets Generac apart from "the other guys".
