With the possibility of another northeast storm coming, I got my Genny out of storage and brought it to the shop for a once over.. I'm glad I did.. The thing won't run more than 5 minutes.. Anyways it's a 15 year old noisy genny.. So perfect time to get a new one. I got my eyes on the Honda 2000i.. Tomorrow I'm going to pull the trigger... Pros/cons? Should I just bite the bullet and get the companion?
