    Click image for larger version  Name:	image_40728.jpg Views:	4 Size:	798.1 KB ID:	610422​ With the recent hurricane blowing through our area, we lost electricity for over 3 days. My backup generator had a voltage regulator issue with it and was producing more volts than it should have so I decided not to chance using it for back up power. My solution? I pulled out my Roughneck2E and powered our esential needs for those days it was needed. It is over 40-45 years old and did not skip a beat the whole time it was running. 5hr run time on its 1 1/2 gallon fuel tank and am planning to add a larger fuel tank to it in the future for longer run times before needing to refuel it. Miller to the rescue!

    Excellent! While I installed an auto-start, auto-transfer generator some years ago due to my wife's medical issues, I still made up a cable to connect my Trailblazer to the house in the event the generator failed--same possible scenario you had. Great save!
