Coleman PowermateThe Coleman Powermate generator is a heavy duty and long lasting generator. Each model has been tested and proven to run efficiently and to run for the longest amount of time possible. All of the Coleman generator models are gas powered and each type comes with a large tank so that you can have power for a long period of time without interruption. Coleman is known notorious for having large fuel tanks (average 8 gallons) which is an important feature for saving time from refilling the tank over and over. The average machine runs for up to 10 hour’s non-stop without needing to be refueled. Many types also come with an overhead fuel valve for less hassle and for maximum fuel efficiency. Each model is also outfitted with a muffler which cuts down the noise and that feature makes Coleman generators much quieter than most gas portables. Models can come with either a pull-start or an electric start. Some models also come with extra outlets for convenience.
Coleman Powermates are all portable generators and they can be easily moved and taken anywhere. These generators are very versatile and can be used to power certain outlets in a house, can be used for emergencies and can also be used for camping or for any activity in a remote location requiring power and outlets. Each type usually comes with at least four 120-volt power outlets which are the same outlets that would be in a typical home. Some models come with outlets that have up to 240-volts which are great for running the power into an transfer switch which is commonly used for powering housing. Some types also come with a battery charger and meter.
