  3 Questions
Q: What is meant by "CARB", with respect to generators?
by Joe from Washington on October 28, 2012

A: CARB is the California emissions requirements for generators to be shipped there. The units must meet strict requirements to be shipped to CA and they have special components like a spark arrester and evaporation canister which is why they cost more.

Q: Does it have 4-120 volt outlets and one outlet that goes from 120 to 250 volts?

Q: Hi Jim I bought a Powermate PM0105007 - 5000 watt gas power electric generator from home depot. The engine is a RATO made in china. Am I going to be ok with this?
by John Miller from Washington on January 22, 2012

A: Yes, you should be find with this engine. Engines from China have been in the US for 8 - 9 years and have really had no major issues over the last 5 years and parts are typically accessible if needed.

The key is to do proper maintenance such as running the unit every week to every couple of weeks to keep the internals proper lubricated and prevent moisture build-up.

This also gives piece of mind knowing it is going to work when you need it.

Proper oil changes and using clean fresh fuel with a fuel stabilizer is extremely important.

Read the owner's manual from cover to cover as there is usually a ton of information that is extremely helpful.

Work Horse
Our power went out and we ran this 5000 watt generator to power portions of our home for seven days...24 hours a day for those seven day! The only time we stopped the generator was to change oil in it at 30 hours of use and to refill the gas tank. It used six gallons about every 13 hours. We were able to run several lights, our refrigerator, two 750 watt radiator oil heaters and powered up our portable DVD player without any problems. Great generator!
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, I'd Buy It Again

Great Generator
Great little generator. It came 2 days early without a call in advance.

Easy assembly. I added oil & gas and it started right up. I have not needed to use it yet, but I'm glad it's there.
