Need some help here guys and gals

Ok I found this generator at an auction close to me this Friday. Can't get a hold of the owners at the moment thought I would post it here if anyone can give me some idea about how much power it would have etc.
Can't get any specs from looking at it.


It is in picture #3

I'd have to guess a Model: EG2200X Max AC 2200W, 67dB (A), 39.5 kg. .... that's only because I blew up the auction picture and re-pixlated it some to read the label.

I did find the identical unit on Ebay too.... http://cgi.ebay.com/HONDA-GAS-GENERATOR ... dZViewItem

If you buy something at an auction.....BE SURE to check it out good first. Most auctions are ALL SALES FINAL.

Start it and get it under a load somehow. There seems to be plenty of tools in the pictures that use a lot of juice.

The bad thing about generator engines is that they have a tapered output shaft on the crank and are SPECIFIC to generators ONLY. You can't just run out and put any old 8, 10, 12 etc... h.p. engine on them. And they can get pricey to replace.

I did notice the one on Ebay is gauranteed....there are lots of brand new ones cheap on there too.

I might go $200....$250 tops for the one at the auction......but that's just me. $100-$150 if you can't test it under a load first.

Wish you luck!

Thank you so much Guys.

I knew I asked the right bunch.

I know the owners of the auction house and I am positive they would let me run whatever I want before I bid. They are good people been around a long time.

I have bought lots of stuff from them over the years.
