Anyone got any experience with the Powertec generators in the Repco Christmas catalogue?

Generally I'm a "you get what you pay for" guy but recently I've bought some expensive stuff that hasn't been all it's cracked up to be and I've seen other stuff that is really cheap that has outperformed expensive established brand items so I'm beginning to think otherwise. Think car fridges, where there was only one to buy for many years, but I've had terrific service out of one half the price of an Engel for years now.

Is it the same for generators?

My experience with Repco is that their stuff is generally pretty good at very competitive prices. Grateful any thoughts.

Chinese brand. Do you need an inverter or normal generator.? There are plenty of safer options I would have thought, however I have had no experience with them.

Well I guess its what you want it to do. Like you i have a non Engel/Waeco fridge freezer and love it. I have a $100 solar panel from Kmart which does all I want (light in the van at night), and a $100 generator from Bunnings, which I might add to the horror of some on here is just as quiet as the really expensive models. With the cheap model gens though I would add I only put in one ltr of juice at a time (all i need) and run it down. The on/off switches to the carbys are prone to break. cheers

Your $100 gennie is not an inverter so you are very limited, really not worth comparing.
What I want my stuff to do is be reliable and last, you get what you pay for imo..
