Portable Generators

joebr549May 4, 2011

I am considering the Briggs and Stratton Elite 30470 generator, 7000 running watts and the Black Max 7000.

The B&S has a 3 year warranty and the Black Max has 2

year warranty. The Black Max is a Sam's and costs $1100,

the Briggs and Stratton is from Amazon and costs 899.

Please give me info abou these two generators.

What do you need these Generator's to power and for what length of time ?

There is a large write-up on the Black Max earlier, you will gain much insight. As for the B&S, read all the write-ups at Amazon, Home Depot. I have read that B&S has a weak valve problem, and when repairs are needed, the service centers keep them for months.
