If you go to a Harbor Freight store, they have stacks of ads with those coupons by the door. If you go on-line, you can sign up for e-mail coupons. Are these people really that stupid?!?

Stupid should hurt, otherwise people don't get any smarter. Paying for a free coupon for a HF chinese made generator, is right up there at the top of my list of the dumbest things you could possibly do.

Ahh, but remember, those Predator generators are rated a "Best Buy" by Consumer Reports

They rated it higher than a Generac!

I have one of those 900 watt 2-stroke units. Gave $40 for it from a distributor / liquidator that handles Harbor Freight return merchandise. Wouldn't pay more than that for one, though...

Ebay $600...... 2 MAJB ONAN marine generators, in REAL basket case condition. Says ONE rotor and stator assembly, 1 control box assembly, 1 new piston, sounds like he tried to make 1 gen out of 2 and found he had 2 sets of bad parts.

What's the A in MAJB mean??

And the B??
I didn't look at pic too well. I just assumed it was a JB, was such a basket case.

I'm thinking the B was misread and is actually a 3.
An MAJ3-0 would be a good number.

There is a majb . I can't seem to find the id tag on those generators. I'll try to look in the op manual and see what says.

It is, but that part is one that isn't too uncommon to fail, and they are hard to find. I'd personally come up with some other solution, but I can see spending that if I were in a pinch (power was out).
