NorthStar Generators

What can we tell you about NorthStar Generators ? NorthStar Generators come in three different variations:

  • Gasoline
  • Diesel
  • Tri-fuel models

They are powered by engines from either: Honda, Kohler, Tecumseh, Yanmar or Hatz Diesel and they can range anywhere from 2,700 to 15,000 watts. Currently, the models that provide more than 5,000 watts are all equipped with the much needed extended-run fuel tanks and 120-volt and 240-volt outlets. One of the nice features of NorthStar generators is that they come with maintenance-free, copper-wound brushless head and circuit breaker protection.

What Users are Saying About NorthStar Generators

I purchased my NorthStar Generator after some considerable research. We had to have the right generator because currently there is no street power on this custom home site and it won’t be for another five to seven weeks and we’ve got to get this house built! Thus far my builder and a crew of five have been using the unit for about eights weeks and give it nothing but rave reviews. They power all of their tools and have had no down time at all. It uses around 15 gallons of gas a week… and even when running non-stop, it runs cool. Some other key points; I change the oil frequently and keep tabs on the maintenance, which probably is the reason I get excellent fuel usage.

Pros: Operating temp runs great, kick down idle, plenty of power and fuel efficient

Cons: Somewhat loud, wasn’t thrilled about the location of oil fill and drain

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5

After Hurricane Frances I lost power for seven and a half days. I must admit, before Frances hit, I did like everyone else and attempted to find a Generator locally to no avail. Lesson learned; never wait until the last minute to get back up power supply. I went online to Findgenerators.net and saw that Northern Tools had what I was looking for. Ordered it on a Friday and had it at my home, hooked up and operational by Wednesday. When Hurricane Jeanne hit and the power went out, my NorthStar Generator operated like warrior. Thanks to Findgenerators.net for helping me out of a tight spot. My family will never be concerned about power outages again.

Pros: Quick set up, more than enough power, quiet, easy maintenance

Cons: Somewhat loud, wasn’t thrilled about the location of oil fill and drain
