Okay need to get a portable generator for the field too so I can use saws, drills etc. while I do know how a generator works, I've never had to deal with the commercial ones(military had the best toys). Money is a factor, I'm looking at getting one for less then a grand, so if anyone knows any good reliable brands to check out let me know. I'd also like to know how easy they are to work on. It's Alaska and one thing you cAn count on is things breakin down.
Also I'm not sure about the rating system for commercial models. So a basic rundown of their ratings and capacities would be appriciated as well.
