Hey all,

So with it being that time of year was doing usual generator service and have had a few issues on my generator that are hopefully fixed but waiting to see... That being said I do want to start looking for a new one just in case. Last time I got on was yrs ago when I lived in STT so dont really know over here on STX who sells and what sort. I know Home Depot and Cost Ya sell generators but many times are not really the best brands and such. Does anyone have suggestions for other places to look at on STX ?

 

Thanks in advance !!!

What size (kWh) and voltage (120 only or 120/240 volt) do you need? Are you looking for a specific fuel (diesel/gas/propane/multifuel)? Are you looking for a basic generator or do you have specific needs (power clean enough to charge solar batteries, for instance)?

Gallows Bay hardware usually starts putting out more generators this time of year - I think they had Ford and one other brand last year. They normally keep a couple models in stock, but usually bring in more variety.

Plaza East sells an off brand (I think it's Firman).

You could also call Quality Electric and St Croix Trading to see if they have anything.

If you're looking for something better, it may be worth ordering it to be delivered to your shipping company of choice (Paradise/VI Cargo/etc) and pay the freight. That's how I got my Honda EU7000 here a couple years ago. It was actually cheaper to shop around and pay $120-150 freight than to order it in Miami from Home Depot and have it delivered to my shipping company.

There's several discussions on generators (some you were part of) if you search for generator in the forum.
