Thought I was just welding for a hobby, this past time is becoming very useful.

There's a wintery storm coming our way and this county has a bad habit of losing electric way too easy. So I took a trip to Lowes to buy a generator. After looking at a couple of cheapy generators and realizing that it would sit around for months not being used, I had one of those "Power of Blue" attacks and decided to go to the LWS.

I walked out with a new Bobcat 250. The clean waveform that this thing produces is far superior to that cheap stuff. No worries about being without power. I love this blue stuff. Good quality stuff.

How many hours can these things go before an engine or gen overhaul? What's your experience with that?
