Is your "portable" generator actually portable? If you have the XP8000E from Generac, then your answer should be yes. The fold-down handles and never-flat wheels make this generator ready to rumble when you are. Accidentally hit something while moving your generator? No problem; the hardened steel tube cradle provides ample protection that might leave other generators reeling. You shouldn't need a map to locate the controls, which is why all the essentials are on one outlet panel. The OHVI engine is made specifically for generators and provides 3 to 4 times longer service life. Even an engine as amazing as this can be damaged by low oil levels. You'll be thankful for the low oil pressure shutdown protection, which turns the unit off rather than damage the engine. Don't just get any kind of generator, get one from Generac.
