Briggs and Stratton 030473 Review

Customer Photo of a B&S Generator: We will lower the score to #5 (from #2)

UPDATE: October 13, 2011: A few more customers have had a chance to chime in on the B&S 030473 generator over this Summer and Fall.

Since more customers have had a chance to really use the Briggs & Stratton 030473 inverter generator – we will have to lower this one down to a 5th Place or so. Initially, it had come in at #2.

Despite this, there are still come nice features that we like for this Briggs and Stratton 030473 Review

1) It is a pretty quiet generator with a dB rating of 64 decibels

2) The Briggs and Stratton is light – 50 lbs – and easily moved about (as seen in the customer comments below)

3) The price for this generator is decent. Currently $649 with Free Shipping. (Compared to the Yamaha EF2000iS – Our complete winner for best quiet generator) See our Quiet Generator Comparison with every detail analyzed. Also click here as we found some gently used Briggs 030473 P2000 generators for $584.99

Here is a sample of some of the good and not so good comments for this updated Briggs and Stratton 030473 Review:

Briggs and Stratton 030473 Review From Real Customers: The Good

“Used it camping for 5 days, works great. A bit louder then the Honda but for $500 less, this is the one to buy. Starts easy. With no load it makes very low noise. Add a load it revs up and works great. 5 stars from me. Very happy.”

“It’s a bit louder than a Honda, but not much, not enough to really care about. 105cc’s will make some noise. It’s slightly larger in size, but again, not very noticeable. Easy to carry and the controls are simple. A very good choice for the average homeowner/casual user.”

Briggs and Stratton 030473 Review From Real Customers: The Sorta Bad and the Ugly

“The generator is very quiet, provides ample power for a tailgate, and sips gas. After 4 tailgates it suddenly stopped putting out AC power. It was in the middle of the tailgate and very inconvenient. I took it to an authorized Briggs and Stratton service center. They fixed it in one day. It appears a lead had come loose from the DC output to the inverter. The repair was fully covered under the warranty.”

“To follow up on powering my boat’s A/C, I purchased the Yamaha and it did power my boat’s A/C without complaint and even in Eco Mode. I ran the Briggs & Stratton 030473 next to the Yamaha. There was a definite difference in the noise levels between the two. You do get what you pay for. The Yamaha performed better, was lighter, and was also quieter. It was definitely worth the extra money to me. I could hardly hear the Yamaha generator running when inside the boat. I’m leaving the rating at two stars for the B&S. It does work but it doesn’t perform as expected. Lesson learned…”

As you will see below in the comments section below, several people “wish that this ETQ generator was quieter.” One person had a hard time getting customer service to respond to his requests to fix the choke. He says he wished he had purchased a Honda generator instead as, according to him, they are much quieter.

This doesn’t mean that this is all bad for the ETQ IN2500I – as it has received positive marks from others as well.

Kipor Sinemaster IG2000 (used to call KGE2000Ti) digital inverter generators are approximatly 50% smaller and lighter than traditional generators because the alternator is directly connected to the engine, and the flywheel is therefore eliminated. The voltage is constantly adjusted to maintain at 120V by the computer inverter module. The light weight design makes them ideal for transportation. Kipor digital generators are equipped with the unique smart-throttle. It can automatically regulate the engine speed according to the load, so the fuel consumption of digital generator sets is lower by 20%-40% than traditional sets, the running time is therefore much longer.

Electric Generators Give Home on the Range a New Meaning!

Electric Generators – Ahhhh!

Power generators are one of the most valuable pieces of equipment when they’re needed. During power outages or in locations where plugging into the electric grid is not an option, a portable power generator can come in real handy. Unfortunately it also can be a very bad neighbor due to the noise factor. Imagine traveling out to the wilderness only to listen to the generator roar from the neighbors camp set up. Not good. So if you’re considering getting a generator, be very aware of the operational noise and select a high quality, quiet electrical generator.

If you are considering buying a generator, make sure that you take the time to consider a Honda power generator. The Honda electric generators have superior insualative properties over most other brands so it runs very quietly. Many people may not think that spending extra money on a generator just because it is quiet is prudent, but a quiet generator is very important in many cases. Tailgating and camping are two of those cases.

Tailgate parties are usually thrown during sports seasons where people get together at the stadium to have a cook out prior to enjoying the game. Although 110 volt electrical power is a great convenience, it’s also very noisy if you select the wrong power generator source.

A couple years ago, we went to a local football game even though we had no tickets just went to enjoy the pre-game festivities and food. We decided that if we did not find anyone selling tickets in the parking lot, then we would just watch the game on the television located in the camper on our truck. Short story is that we didn’t get tickets and were able to use our quiet generator to view the game in the comfort of our own recreational vehicle.

We soon discovered the benefits of having a quiet generator like the Honda power generator because we had the benefit of a quiet generator. The television required electricity. There was no way that we were missing the game so we just powered up the generator and had all the comforts of home right in the back of our truck.

We had no noise complaints due to the quiet operating generator. The people in an adjoining motor home however weren’t so lucky. They’re gen-set was an older unit that was noisy and clanked away while still generating the electricity. These poor folks had others coming over and complaining all the time because of the noise. It just wasn’t worth the problems or ugly behavior so they had to turn off their power source.

The moral of the story is that it’s not good to pay to little for electric generators but it’s also not good to pay to little. Get the best value once again pays dividends for the life of the purchase. Consider a quality, quiet electrical power generator for your next outing.

Take A Portable Generator: Don’t Go Without Your Modern Cons On Your Next Camping Trip

Beef Up The Convenience Level With A Portable Generator

The benefits of owning a portable generator for your camping trips are obvious. You don’t need to go without all the mod cons for starters. Some people believe that camping is equal to roughing it but a growing number are starting to realize that it doesn’t have to be this way.
Portable whisper quiet generators are useful for both tent camping and caravan or RV camping. Your particular need for a portable generator will determine the type of model that you choose.

When you are choosing a portable generator you first need to determine your power requirements. This is just very basic maths. Most devices will list their requirements in watts so just add these up for all the appliances you will have powered at the same time and you will have your approximate power requirements. Some don’t have wattage requirements on them but they are easy to work out if you know the amps and volts. Watts=Amps x Volts and you will arrive at the wattage needed to power the device.

Another important often overlooked requirement is the start up current required. If you have large appliances such as air conditioners, refrigerators and or freezers in your arsenal of travel gear then you need to factor in the start up current for your total power requirements.
For example, a fridge will require up to 3 times the amount of operating current to start up. Forgetting this important factor could damage your appliances and fry a few electronics. You don’t have to add the starting currents all together. Just the ones that you know will be starting at the same time will give you your maximum power requirements.

Fuel Choices For Portable Generators

For camping trips gasoline powered is a good choice but gasoline has a short shelf life. If you need to store a fuel supply for emergencies then most suppliers will recommend a propane powered generator. Some generators are dual or even tri-fuel capable so if you like to have choices you should seriously consider getting one of those models.

Other Things To Consider For Portable Generators

If you are using your generator primarily for camping then the sound rating will be high on your list of requirements. There are quite a few campsites that don’t allow generators but you don’t want to abuse the privilege when staying at one that does. Most campers are there for the peace and quiet so keep your generator use to a minimum and never at night.
These days there are many models that are available that are super quiet but the important thing to remember when it comes to portable generators is that you get what you pay for so plan to pay a little extra for quality and durability.┬áIf you camp in national forests you will need to get a generator that has an approved spark plug arrestor. It doesn’t hurt to be on the safe side when it comes to preventing forest fires.
