You realize that the pictured Ingersol-Rand generator is a Christmas ornament, right? That maybe $85.

Have seen a lot of scams. Just when you thought there can't be another one it pops up. This one is too obvious.

That 3100 Champion is garbage, it doesn't put out 2800w running. Couldn't run my table saw and or my mitre saw. Never mind the air conditioner in the trailer. I had two of these from costco, returned them both. The motor has a high pitch to it, drove my wife and i nuts, couldn't run it for more than 5 minutes. Champion told me they weren't designed to run commercially...lol. I'm retired i don't work anymore i putter around. I bought the 3400 Champion. I love this machine. I've had it for a year now and never misses a beat and runs my table saw and mitre saw with no squawking. Quite a bit more money but its worth it. And the motor pitch is just fine doesn't annoy anyone.
Tried it on the air con just for the fun of it and it didn't even kick into high gear.

This company selling thse things is:

Shanghai Meicheng Technology Information Development Co., Ltd.

I am guessing they are out of Montana or somewhere? Their address is hidden in the whois.com lookup (as are most these days).

A little more about this fine Chinese vendor:

This is a verified scam. Search YouTube for “Globays” for a detailed review of how it works.
