Hi all.

Slightly off topic for Norfolk, but very much boating related.

Just been looking for a cheap and cheerful portable petrol generator.

Woolworths website are doing a very basic 650w petrol generator for £49.99 (plus a fiver delivery) in their sale online.

And before I get flamed......yes I know they are annoying to other boat user etc etc.....

See: http://www.woolworths.co.uk/ww_p2/product/index.jhtml?pid=50524570

Got to be good value at that price even if it's cheap and nasty! I've just ordered one......

Cheers,

James.

But not as noisy and annoying as my 6.5KVA petrol powered monster!! It did the trick though, I was soon afterwards allowed to have a shore supply!! Evil Grin

No good Richard - it's 220v. Playful

We are not the owners of the Broads, any one of us. We have a far more important duty as guardians of this very precious region for the generations which will succeed us.

Ah yes. But hook it up in the garage to a 240V PC from the Norwich Recycling Centre, and the Admirial will have the site disaster recovery plan sorted.

Actually I do have 220 circuits for the heavy stuff, boiling water with 110 is like watching paint dry. About the only good thing you can say about 110 is that the bang isn't as big when you're working on "hot" equipment.

Just a note about these gennys, I have one of these and there is very little equipment that they can cope with, so don't have visions of boiling kettles or anything, if you want to power a drill for example you will need to look around for a low power cheepy as most drills are at least 850W +.

We have a "thing" that you put in a cup to make one cup of tea at a time, cannot for the life of me remember where it came from or what its real name is.

Always turn off the petrol and let it run out when you have finished with it otherwise you wil be left with a gummed up carb next time you need it.

It might be worth mentioning that 50:1 means 20cc of 2T oil to 1 litre of petrol.

Hi,
Saw in halfords last night they are selling off some 1Kva gennys in frame type for £99. less than half price may be more useful for anyone with enough room to fit it.

Humberman, I think the "thing" you're thinking of is called a teabag.

Yours helpfully,
