I live out in the country as many of you do. So I need a generator that can power a 220 volt 1/2 horse well pump motor. I think a 4000 or 5000 watt generator would do but it seams silly to buy such a large generator for 4 or 5 lights, a refrigerator, freezer, CD player, and fireplace fan (if it is winter time). A 2000 watt generator could power the house if it were not for the well. Wondering if any one else is in this same predicament. I would also like to have the propane option and the larger units get pretty expensive with the conversion kits (and consume a lot more unnecessary fuel). The small units like the Honda 2000i and Yamaha 2000 watt comparable are pretty reasonable and sip the fuel. I was thinking a cheaper 6500 watt Generac and a Honda or Yamaha 2000 watt generator. But that means two generators. Anyone else in the same predicament that can lend assistance.
