      I bought a 17KW generator about 10 years ago for my secluded Idaho ranch after having no power for a full day one Christmas. Being so far out of town we often lost power for an hour or more even when the local town did not. I had 2-1000 gallon Propane tanks that under normal use got me through an entire winter with enough left over to last the rest of the year if need be. The generator used very little propane over all and I expect could have run continuously for 4 weeks or more on a single 1K tank if needed. The generator allowed us to have full power even when everyone else around for miles was in darkness. One nice thing was that when it was running it adjusted based on demand so fuel consumption was optimized. When only a few lights, the fridge, and well & the heater pump (I had radiant in floor heat) were running it still was able to reduce it's fuel use and remained relatively quiet.

      Pros Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Strong, Good Size & Weight
