It 's measures are roughly 22X22X21 inches and has a rating of 250 Watts.
It has a motor size of 208cc and is 6.2 horsepower. The fuel tank holds 4 gallons of gas and is easily added at the top of the generator. The oil is a standard SAE 30 or variation of 30 weight, depending on the (outside) temperatures and the spark plug is a standard type plug; this makes routine maintenance simple and inexpensive.
The tube-frame is made of hardened steel to support it, and the fuel tank is made of steel. It also has two, no maintenance tires. The pull-handle folds down when not in use and this helps to lower its size in length, which also makes it easier to store.
It has a toggle type on/off switch, a manual choke and is manually started (pull-start). The pull-start handle is not big and clunky, it is graspable and has a smooth, easy to pull, start rope. This particular brand has the "low tone muffler"; which actually does make it seem quieter than other portable generators.
This generator has 3,250 running watts of power and two, 13.5 Amp circuit breakers to help prevent overload. It has four, 120-Volt outlets and one, 120/240, "twist and lock," type outlet. It's a good backup for running standard home items such as: lights, refrigerator, TV or small appliances. With a full load, it will run for about 4 hours and with a half load, it will run about 11 hours. Please note: this cannot be used inside the home; it has to be in a well-ventilated area, outside the home.
This Centurion is a sturdy, dependable back-up source for power; it is easy to move for its weight of 115 pounds, and is somewhat quieter than other generators. It has great safety features, like, low oil shutdown and circuit breaker protection. This generator is smaller and equal in power and features compared to other brands, and is priced competitively.
