Default K-582 powered homelite, so much easier with the right tools

so much easier with the right tools [kil-a-watt]
I finally let the moths out of the wallet and bought the plug in V,A,W,Hz,and Pf meter [KWH and time too]

after getting the gen-set running right the final set up was easy
sure beats a voltmeter, electric clock, and a watch

just a hair over 60 Hz at 2800 watt load with 116 VAC
2 electric heaters for the load 2800/7200=38.88%
