Boliy Pro generators

Has anyone had any experience, (both good or bad) with the Boliy Pro 3,600 watt generator?
I've seen them advertised for the past couple of years but no reports on their performance. Seems like they would be about right for running 1 A/C, in addition of everything else. (Not all at the same time)
The price seems right, the weight seem right.....am I missing something?
Thanks
Larry

Here is an old thread on it:
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f448...rue-34134.html

I think it cant put out that kind of power weighing as little as it does, all of the comparable ones weigh twice as much. Since it is a chinese "clone" unit, I find it hard to believe they have discovered some magic way to make it weigh half as much as put out 2x the power.

I have a 4000 watt chinese clone and it works just fine, but it was a little less than $400 and weighs about 114 pounds. For the $1000 you are considering spending I think you are getting way out of "clone territory" and should either go cheap or buy the real thing a get a Honda/Yamaha.

Here's an AIRForums thread about what may be a previous generation.

I easily found a thread on Woodall's about these from the 2010 timeframe as well.

The impression I have is "it's an imperfect thing but it works."

Thumbs up

I think the biggest thing missing is the quality, dealer network, and reputation of the red and blue options.
I've used both Yamaha and Honda with excellent results.

OK guys, thanks for the advice and information. I have a Honda 2000, and like it a lot, except, it won't run the A/C, but will run everything else. For the price, I think I'll just use both Fantastic vents, and forget the A/C.
Honda products are very hard to beat as we all know....

If you already have a Honda 2000i, for about the same price as that Boliy you could buy the Honda 2000 Companion and have the best of both worlds. Light weight for when you just need to charge batteries, 2 light weight units for when you want AC.

I agree with that, but I'm running out of space in the back of the Dodge. Between a 115 gallon aux fuel tank, and the rest of the "Stuff" we carry, I'm stuffed.
The 3000 watt Honda, (the lighter weight one) would be a consideration.
I guess like everything else in life, it's a compromise...
