Thanks Bob K

I haven't got one Bob, but I have been thinking about it for a while, as stated in another post, if a mouse coughs in my village (cleaned that one up  Smile ) the lights go off for days.

I thought at least if I had  a generator, I could boil a kettle and keep the central heating running.

Aldi do one on a yearly basis, and I think they are about £80, but the main ones I looked at were Clarke ones that look about the same as Honda, but much cheaper

We bought one from Aldi a few years and used it a couple of times just to tipoff the battery but it lives in the shed now 'just in case' the lights go out.

It's 800w and will apparently last around 8hrs with a full tank. Cost about £60 from memory but it's not one of the quiet ones.

Around May time each year Lidl sell their own brand generator which generally gets good reviews although it does tend to be a bit noisy.

I bought a Honda in 2009 to be honest you can count the number of times I have used it in the van on two hands. Would not get rid of it always handy to have we have lots of power cuts and have a set up at home so it runs the freezer and the heating.

Thanks to all for your advice. I do like the Hondas but its far too expensive for me (living on NHS pension only) Thanks Dizzy may take a look at the Clarke ones. I see you live fairly near to me. Must meet up for to chew the fat one day.

regards to all. Merry Christmas santa
