The Predator 8750 is a mid range portable generator from Harbor Freight. With 7000 watts of running capacity, it is well equipped to run a medium sized home’s power needs as well as a decent tool shop.

Most appliances like an AC or a Refrigerator with motors or compressors need an initial higher surge of power to get started. The Predator 8750 has a surge capacity is 8750 watts, so you should be careful to stagger your appliances when you start them, start the AC and get it running and then start the Refrigerator.

Fortunately, the 8750 is a workhorse. According to user Dirk Polyani : I got the Predator 8750 Generator as a power backup for my home’s heating and cooling as well as other appliances and it runs everything without a hiccup.

The Predator 4000 is a small portable generator from Harbor Freight. With 3200 running watts and a surge capacity of 4000, this 99 pound generator is a decently powered portable generator.

You would do well to get a set of wheels as it is not a light weight. Again the Predator Generator has a generous set of outputs : 2 regular 3 prong 120V outlets with 20 amp load capacity, a single 240 volt 4 prong Twist Lock outlet with 30 Amp capacity and a 10 amp, 12 volt DC outlet.

Sam from New England is very happy with the Predator 4000 : I run this during our long winters and the generator is its not too noisy at 72 dB. I have sensitive electronics and I did take the trouble to purchase a separate power stabilizer. All the power outlets have re settable fuses : thats good safety.

The Predator 3500 is a quiet generator from the Harbor Freight range. At 57 db, compared to over 70db for regular portables, it is great for the camping and RV trips. A power load of 3500 watts gives you enough power to run a window AC, your computer, printer, lights and TV. Alternating heavier loads will make your generator run up to 11 hours on one gas tank load.

There are 2 AC 120 volt output plugs and one 3 prong 120 volt outlet for your RV. The DC charging outlet can be used to charge your car or RV Battery. An LCD display and convenient overload, low oil and output indicator rounds out the Predator 3500 Generator.

The unit weighs 110 pounds and comes with small caster wheels. Buyers advise replacing the wheels as the caster wheels are little smaller than desirable.

The Predator 2000 is the smallest Inverter Generator from Harbor Freight. With 2000 watts of peak power output, the Predator 2000 outputs a steady 1600 watts of continuous power.

At just 54 pounds and a 57 db noise level, this is your generator for the camping or tailgate trip. It might be little low on the power for your RV, but if you don’t plan on running your AC, this will do just fine.

The Predator 13500 is one of the most powerful Harbor Freight Generators. Its 11,000 watts of running power and 13500 watts of surge capacity pretty much makes it a whole home generator in the guise of a portable.

Its heavy, almost 400 pounds, noise at 78 db, but its the best value for money. The wheels make it transportable and the 11,000 watt capacity will give you spare power to run some of your neighbors appliances as well.

It can run almost 8 hours at a 50% load - which is usually lower than your load at night time, so you get a refreshing 8 hours of sleep.
