It's getting warmer out and with warmer weather comes the threat of severe weather. Storms have the potential to cause serious issues including property damage, physical injuries and power outages. Prolonged power outages can cause so many issues. Last year we experienced a power outage that lasted over two days. We lived in the country and we were at the bottom of the priority list for getting power restored. It was the middle of Summer and it was so hot outside. We had a refrigerator full of food and a freshly stocked deep freezer as well and sadly, we lost everything. It was almost unbearable living conditions having no electric or running water and we were really lost! We recently bought a new home and it has a basement which is a blessing and a curse. While we now have somewhere to take shelter when a bad storm does strike, if we lose power, the sump pump quits working which ultimately leads to a flooded basement. This year, we are prepared for whatever adventure the Summer brings because we just received the Ryobi 2200 Digital Inverter Generator!
No matter what your needs, the Ryobi 2200 Watt Inverter Generator is ready to perform. The quiet engine makes it the perfect choice whether you are at the ballpark, camping out or at home. It boasts of 2200 starting watts and 1800 running watts and is safe for just about any electronic device. As a huge plus, it is also parallel-kit capable so you can link two Ryobi Inverters together for twice the power for bigger jobs . Also featured is the idle-down technology for better fuel efficiency. The 3 year warranty is just the icing on the cake.
Like all Ryobi products, I was really impressed with this generator. It's compact and much lighter than other generators I am familiar with. The pull-out handle makes it so convenient too. It's important to me that my wife be able to use the generator as well. I work every other weekend so she is often on the go with the kids by herself. I am fully confident that she can safely and easily operate the Ryobi generator if the need ever arises and that gives me some much needed peace of mind.
A lot of people have a hard time justifying the expense of a generator because they think generators are only for when we lose power. That's what I always thought until our children got older and we started attending sporting events on a regular basis. If you like to tailgate, a generator is a lifesaver! Our boys play in out of town baseball and soccer tournaments on a regular basis and tailgating with the rest of the team is so fun. With the Ryobi portable generator, we can enjoy the ultimate tailgating experience!
Our Little League team recently had a practice at a new field where we don't usually play. After we all showed up for practice, we realized there was nowhere to plug our pitching machine in. That's when I remembered the Ryobi Generator! We live near the field so I just ran home and grabbed the generator and it literally saved our practice (and my arm!)
Similar generators can be found for up to $1500 on todays market but the RYI 2200 is just $599. When you look at the endless possibilities on the amazing fun you can have this Summer with this product, it's priceless! Hurry over to your local Home Depot or go to HomeDepot.Com to pick yours up today!
