Flip-up handle.

This generator is EPA approved with a rating of 69 dBA for quiet operation thanks to its super-quiet muffler, and it’s also safe to use in U.S. National Parks thanks to the super quiet exhaust with spark arrestor.

Note for California residents: This model is not CARB-compliant. Units sold to California must be CARB-compliant.

The MX4500E features a heavy duty steel frame roll cage with four-point fully isolated motor mounts for smooth and quiet operation. This generator is also easily portable thanks to the wheel kit with large, all-terrain knobby tires that will never deflate and a flip-up, stow-away handle. You’ll get up to 8 hours of run time (at 50 percent) from a 4-gallon tank of fuel.

With the electric start, it’s as simple to get this generator going as turning on your car. And if the battery isn’t fully charged, you can use the single-pull recoil cord to start the generator.

The fully loaded power panel features the main controls, including RV switch, engine shutoff switch, volt meter, and circuit breaker. It offers two 120-volt, 20-amp, 3-prong outlets and one 120/240-volt, 30-amp twist-lock outlet (all NEMA Certified).

Your Generator Needs

To determine whether a generator is appropriate for your needs, you need to first add up the wattage of tools, appliances, and motors you want to run at the same time. Then select a generator with the running wattage rating to match or exceed the total load.

Keep in mind that tools and appliances with electric motors require additional surge wattage at startup that can be double or triple the normal running wattage requirement. Look at the surge watts required and make sure you choose a generator with enough additional wattage to start them. (And remember that you’re typically not starting more than half of the items at the same time.)

Here’s a sampling of power ratings for common household appliances.
