Last October, 2017, I bought at Costco this Yamaha SC2000i unit ($499), sat in my garage for a year, no real need, and it was half the price of the equivalent Honda unit. Looks great, well made, well packaged.

So yesterday/today, finally moved it to the side yard...

Hmmm, Good News vs Bad News...

Then got around to adding oil, gas, and fired this inverter/generator up today!

Bad News is, it won't even run the microwave in the trailer on half power! Or full power.. It does run an orbital sander OK, it's pretty quiet, started easy, but decided I don't really need it if it can't actually do something, like run the micro!

Good News: Called Costco, YES they will take it back, no problem. So I emptied the gas, boxed it up, will take it back tomorrow...

Back to looking deeper...
