So it wasn’t blowing the breaker on the generator?

Grit Dog- No sir..it just revved really high and the LCD display said "overload"

I got my Ryobi for $629 at Home Depot plus 10% military/ veteran discount.

Seems like it is running good.

In the past 15 years, I have had two honda 2000's, one champion 3100 and a Ryobi 2200. These were used mainly to power our ice house in MN during ice fishing season. For the most part, I cannot say anything bad about any of them. The Honda was for the most part always dependable. Until we started using synthetic oil, it was a bear to start in weather below 0. One thing the honda always had trouble with was staying running in windy conditions below zero. We spent the New Years weekend up on Red lake one year in -20 with wind. Teh honda quit running about 10 hours in. Luckily, I had the Champion with as a backup. It ran fine for the next 48 hours. Just used more gas. We had a couple of issues with the Honda and when it was time to replace it, I bought the Ryobi 2200 at home depot. They had a sale and I got it for under $400. Put a 6-year warranty on it for an extra $50. I have now used it three winters. It runs 6-8 weekends a year for about 60 hours per weekend. Pluses-

When I use the pizza oven, the satellite tv does not cut out when the oven kicks on. With the honda, it shut off temporarily and then I had to wait about 5 minutes while it rebooted.

With the 1.1 gallon gas tank, it will run 11+ hours on a tank of gas on low use load. The honda needed filling every 8 hours. MAy not sound like a big deal, but if you went to bed at 10:00 pm, you may need to go out at 5:00 am in -25 to fill it. Ryobi would run until sunrise.

Minuses
If the Ryobi was not started every other week, it could take 15+ pulls to start. Honda would usually start in 3-4 pulls after switching to synthetic oil.

I'm not saying the e Ryobi is better, but it does what I need it to do. IF I stayed on the lake all winter, I would probably have the new Honda 2200. But for now, the Ryobi does everything I need .
