Briggs & Stratton P3000 PowerSmart 3000 Watt Inverter Generator

If you can own one inverter, own the Briggs & Stratton 3000.  Now I haven’t had a lot of time on this inverter, but as this year goes on, I will rack up the hours.  As you can see by the video, I am pretty excited.  In fact, I think I even said it had a cigarette lighter, which it doesn’t.  I meant it has a 12V.  The first thing I like about this is Briggs didn’t cut any corners.  It comes with everything you need to run this inverter.  You get the oil, the funnel, the cables, okay it...
