Some of the Best Medium Power Portable Generators on the Market Today
First of all, we'll be the first to agree that our classification "medium power" may be subjective to some people. And there are other generators out there made by lesser known manufacturers which we have not included, but would qualify for the classification. In time, we hope to cover some of these too. But for now, we have gathered for you here a broad selection from among the best you can buy.
The models we look at are manufactured by Briggs & Stratton, Champion Power Equipment, DuroMax, Generac, WEN, and Westinghouse.
Types of Medium Power Models
Of the generators shown here, fifteen are single (gasoline) fuel inverters and eight are dual fuel (gasoline and propane) inverter. The rest are generators built on traditional technology. Most are of the open frame type.
Using gasoline, these generators range from a low of 2300 to a high of 5000 running watts, and 3000 to 6250 starting watts. On propane the outputs range from 3150 to 4275 running watts and 3600 to 5225 starting watts.
