This generator is EPA approved with a rating of 69 dBA for quiet operation thanks to its super-quiet muffler, and it's also safe to use in U.S. National Parks thanks to the super quiet exhaust with spark arrestor.</p> <div class="rightImage" style="width:300px"> <img src="https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/01/outdoor-living/detailpages/duromax/duromax-MX4500-main-sm.jpg" width="285" height="212" alt="MX4500 ties" /> <div class="imageCaption">Never-flat knobby tires (view larger).</div> <p> </p> <img src="https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/01/outdoor-living/detailpages/duromax/duromax-MX4500-panel-sm.jpg" width="285" height="186" alt="MX4500 panel" /> <div class="imageCaption">Fully loaded power panel (view larger).</div> <p> </p> <img src="https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/01/outdoor-living/detailpages/duromax/duromax-MX4500-handlesup-sm.jpg" width="220" height="275" alt="MX4500 handles" /> <div class="imageCaption">Flip-up handle (view larger).</div> </div> <blockquote><p><strong>Note for California residents:</strong> This model is not CARB-compliant.

<div class="aplus" > <p>Ideal for use on farms and ranches, maintenance, construction, and even emergency power outages at home, t...he DuroStar DS4000WGE gas-powered generator has a 16.0-horsepower, 480cc engine that cranks out 3,500 constant running watts of power (and a peak of 4,000 watts; learn more about wattage needs below). It includes both a standard recoil start as well as an easy electric start.</p> <div class="leftImage" style="width:350px"> <img src="https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/01/outdoor-living/detailpages/duromax/durostar-DS4000WGE-main-sm.jpg" width="300" height="250" alt="DS4000WGE main" /> <div class="imageCaption">Powerful ARC welder doubles as a 4000-watt generator (view larger).</div> </div> <p>Additionally, the DS4000WGE power generator doubles as a powerful arc welder, and it's designed for stick welding with quick, easy arc starts. It has a welding output current of 150 amps with an amp range of 50-210 amps and voltage range of 26-30 volts (DC).</p> <blockquote><p><strong>Note for California residents:</strong> This model is not CARB-compliant. Units sold to California must be CARB-compliant.</blockquote> <p>The power panel features the main controls, including start switch, volt meter, and circuit breaker. It offers two 120-volt, 20-amp, 3-prong outlets to supply power to all of your home appliances, plus one 120-volt, 30-amp three-prong twist-lock outlet for high-powered tools. </p> <p>With the electric start, it's as simple to get this generator going as turning on your car. And if the battery isn't fully charged, you can use the single-pull recoil cord to start the generator.</p> <p>The DS4000WGE has an 8-hour run time at 1/2 load, and it has a 7-gallon fuel tank that also includes an easily readable gauge. The heavy duty steel frame has four-point fully isolated motor mounts for smooth and quiet operation. This generator is also easily portable thanks to the wheel kit with large, all-terrain knobby tires that will never deflate and a flip-up, stow-away handle. Other features include a super quiet muffler that reduces engine noise, and automatic low-oil shut off to protect the engine.
