Any feedback on how it starts in minus 20 degree weather? I purchased a new generator (different brand) and it took me 10 pulls to start it in the cold. Thanks

Answer
Thanks for your inquiry.

The Subaru, like all portable generators, can be difficult to start in those extreme temperatures. It is recommended to store the unit inside a garage (Preferably heated) in order to make the unit start easier.

I also recommend having synthetic oil in those temperatures.

What do you think about the Subaru SGX5000? This unit is a lot less expensive than a comperable honda or yahama. Are the hondas and yahama's significantly better? Also, what size would you recommend I get to power a 1/2hp sump pump? And lastly, would you suggest a conventional or inverter generator for running the sump?

Answer
The Subaru models are excellent quality and very comparable to the Yamaha and Honda line of generators. They would actually rank between the Yamaha and the Honda as the Yamaha is the best.

To properly size a generator it is based on the starting amperage load of the equipment you are powering and can be calculated using Ohms Law - Starting Amps x Volts = Watts.

An inverter generator is only required when powering sensitive electronics such as a computer or sensitive TV sets.
