On runryder.com there are several people having no problems with using that gene to run ps. You do need a ps like this that will handle the fluctuations in voltage.

Here's a much better choice than Harbor Freight and much cheaper than a Honda. I know several people that have purchased Champion Generators and they are very happy with their choice. Look at the ones with invertor technology.

If using a non-inverter style, verify frequency is at 60 Hz.  some electronics can not handle more than +/- 5 Hz

Funny you should say that.  I said basically the same thing back in post 11 when I said this:

I'd pony up for an inverter and call it good.  I know most electronics don't like a non-regulated power supply.  Hilton audio equipment is so fussy that it says right in the manual that if a non-inverter generator is used, the warranty is void.

 

The response I got was this:

a heck of a lot of modern electronic devices have switched-mode power supplies, which don't really care what you feed them. if the power supply/AC adapter says it can handle 100-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz, then it can probably handle any raggedy-ass noisy waveform you feed it and work just fine.

that just tells me they still have linear power supplies.

 

I, personally, wouldn't use a generator that doesn't have a frequency regulator of some sort for any kind of electronics.  That said, for power tools, any generator that can handle the load is fine
