Predator 3500 Watt Super Quiet Inverter Generator from Harbor Freight Review

pdidy 11:30 PM - 2 July, 2019
So if you can't afford a Honda EU3000is with Inverter technology & super quiet www.citationsupport.com for $2000 this review is for you.....

I recently purchased the Predator 3500 Watt Super Quiet Inverter Generator www.harborfreight.com from Harbor Freight for $700 to power my sound system.

Test # 1.
2 X JTR captivator 218pro www.jtrspeakers.com
4 D&B Technologies IG4T www.dbtechnologies.com

This is equivalent to 4 X 18in subs and 4 X 12in tops.
At max output, this system can handle about 500 outdoors.
At max output, the system pulled 14amp of the generators Maximum 25amps.

So far I'm extremely impressed with the generator's performance and it gets great reviews from real users that are NOT SPONSERED. Watchwww.youtube.com
The generator is also very easy to maintain even if you have no experience what so ever. Watchwww.youtube.com

Was seriously debating on getting the EU3000is for my jtr/linearesearch set up, but seeing your post above I'm gonna give the predator a serious look

Question does the predator have a 30amp out?

wow, good to know, will definitely invest in one..all the reviews I'm seeing online comparing to the honda the preadator is almost identical to the honda in features.

I was looking at the eu5000is to buy, but my amps for my jtr rig is so dam efficient I'm thinking the 35000 will be just fine.

Good looking. Now I have reason to purchase something from Harbor Freight on Black Friday.

BTW, The break-in process at 8 & 25 hours is crazy easy, I have zero experience maintaining generators or motors but this was so very simple anyone can do it. There's a lot of youtube vids also.

How far away would you recommend the generator to be if you were going to use it for a wedding ceremony in an outdoor setting?

depends on your current ambient noise level, you will likely only notice it if your surroundings are totally silent. While music is being played you won't notice it unless you are standing 3 ft away. The sound it does make is not annoying like the typical generators we've heard our entire lives.
