Generator - Coscto @ $899.99 - Too Good to Be True?
Costco has a B&S "PowerBoss" 7,000 watt (12,000 surge) generator powered by a Honda GX390 13hp OHV engine priced @ $899.99. The local Honda implement dealers best match is Honda generator EM6500 priced @ $2649.95 (same GX390 engine - but with electric start.) I know, I know, you get what you pay for, but 3X the price? Since both have the exact same engines, I have to assume the price difference is in the electronics. I'll always pay for quality, but I'm having a really hard time trying to jusify the additional $1,700 for the Honda. 2 year Warranty on both.
Any and all thoughts on this are appreciated.
