   Yeah, I had a generator, this summer, throw a rod through the
garage wall. The finest Chinese machine work you'd ever like to see
punch a hole in a building.

   Went with a Generac from Whitewater, Wisconsin.

The same company who made the generator that failed after 5 months.
They won't honor the two years warrenty because i am over-using it
(200 hours).  It's a standby generator, i am not suppose to use it,

By the way, should I sue a WI company in Federal court?  I don't think
they registered in CA.

   Mine is a continuous service generator. So, it's built to a
different standard. A standby is a different animal.

   That said, you don't really get to pick when your power is out.
That distinction may be due for a revision.

But failed after 200 hours?  That's less than two weeks of use.
