    thanks.
    Yes and like you stated you would only get 15KW or so of the potential 30KW. My L4400 has 37HP on the PTO and my BX1500 has 10HP on the PTO. If I get the HF unit I will try it with both tractors and see how well they both perform. Likely wouldnt get much over 5KW out of the little BX.

    from looking online, did yours come with the PTO shaft? The RK pic does not show one, but the HF pic did..

    I also have the same generator from Rural King. I ran it for 6 days last fall during the Halloween snow storm, 16-18 hours a day. It ran great. The voltage stayed right in the band, the lights never dipped when the big loads (well pump, electric dryer, etc) kicked on. The only thing I will modify is to put some type of shield over the cooling air intake on the end of the generator. With all the blowing snow we had, I put a tarp over it while it was snowing. I was afraid that it would suck in snow (it moves a LOT of air). I think rain would also have the same problem.

    Just thinking out loud - could it be in the shipping weight and the way it is packaged maybe?
    If not that could be a decent chunk of copper!

    I looked at the pics and the RK looks to be an aluminum frame on the motor and the TS unit is black and could be cast iron. I still cant see 100# difference.

    I will let you know when it gets here. I noticed this evening that it was on sale for $200 off. HF PTO Generator. I have pondered it enough and the sale has pushed me to go ahead.

    I've been thinking about it myself. Hard not to pass it up at that price.

    I really wish you hadn't shown me that. It's all your fault now.

    Your TBN friends are always thinking of new toys/tools for you to spend your money on. I try to buy what I need and TBN lets me know about all the stuff that I need.
