[Costco] Firman 4000W Dual Fuel Inverter Generator $800 ($200 off)

Firman Dual fuel 4000W inverter generator. When I started tracking this item at the beginning of the summer it was $1200. It dropped to $1k and now is $800.

With all this crazy weather, it's good to have some sort of back up solution.

Features:
4000W dual fuel inverter generator
Carbon monoxide shut off
Recoil and electric start
Free cover

Review:
Manufacturer's website. https://firmanpowerequipment.com/products/wh03242

The FIRMAN WH03242 is a 3200 watt 30A electric start RV-ready portable generator for the best of both worlds.

The WH03242 is a part of the Whisper Hybrid Dual Fuel Generator Series. It runs at a quiet 58dB, well below National Park standards, and can use gasoline or propane.

With all this crazy weather, it's good to have some sort of back up solution.

Thanks for this. Considering this against similar smaller inverter generators (Westinghouse, Champion, Honda) to power fridge, chest freezer and maybe furnace and some electronics during power outages.

How would you power furnace with a unit like this?

Oil fired but needs 12V to run ignition and blower

Yes. I have 4 x 20L Scepter military cans I rotate on a regular basis and keep full.
Also, with this also using propane as well, I'll have 2 propane bottles handy.

Damn. I bought the 3200w version earlier this year during the 20% Costco sale so paid the same price as this one now. I don't think this 4000w version was even available at that time.

I plan on using propane as the first fuel source. I've got a few tanks hanging around for our patio heaters already. Propane has a long shelf life too so don't have to worry about fuel stabilizers and other messes that come with keeping gasoline around. I can always siphon gas out from our cars if I run out of propane and can't get gas elsewhere too.

This one of the parts of using propane, it storages for much longer that gasoline

Man I invested a ton in Solar but 2000w inverter. Should I pull the trigger on this as a back up to my back up? Lol

Or spring a couple hundred more for a transfer switch for 6 circuits.

If it had NG option I would be in for 1. It eliminates the storage of fuel issue for me... plus gasoline is crazy expensive to run these on and a pain in the but to get when competing with everyone else at the gas station during an outage.

If your local kijiji is anything like mine you can get back pretty much what you paid for that generator

That’s true. Wonder if you can convert the propane to NG some how

Ah man if only Costco had done a 20% off 1000+ for their appreciation event this would have been an awesome deal. Still a good deal, I might get one... Must resist...
