Thumbs down Harbor Freight 900W generators

Just curious. Has anyone tried these, so do they meet NFS requirements?
I have a ancient Honda 500Watt that works fine to recharge the Airstream
batteries, and maybe run the lights, and it is very quiet, but is vintage of 1983.
Also have a 3000W inverter generator, that usually stays home in the shed..
too heavy to deal with.
So if Honda gives up..will look at these

I don't believe that you will not beat the Honda 1000ei or 2000ei for quietness. Yamaha makes quiet ones also. I have a Honda 2000ei that to me is quiet...even with my hearing aids off.

These are Chinese gennies sold under dozens of brand names virtually everywhere. I couldn't resist picking one up just because it was $99.

They run well, although mine had to be adjusted right out of the box to get the voltage up where it needs to be.

They are LOUD 2 strikes. I wouldn't run one in the campground.
I doubt the power is very clean. I would only run power tools with it.

I will use it strictly to run remote power tools where no electricity is available. Maybe lighting, but NO ELECTRONICS. They are very light and easy to carry.

If you find one for less than $100 and you just like toys, they might be worth it.
