I am in need of a generator...

Morning all,

I am in need of a generator. Nothing huge by any means. I would like to have a 3500 watt model, but nothing smaller than a 2500 watt. I don't have a lot of cash avaliable right now as I've dumped everything I have into getting this van and getting it all set up.
Looking for someone that would be willing to do some trading. My services? Something you need that I may have?

Please let me know if you're interested in doing some trading.

Thanks,
Nick

They both have thier plus sides

I'm at work right now. I get off at about 1:45. Give me a call on my cell phone and we can figure out a place to meet after 1:45. Or you can just come out to my house in Grapevine. Up to you.

if you're going to use it a lot; do yourself a favor and get a honda generator. it will cost more, but it will last forever and it will be much smoother/quieter.

Yeah, I'd love to have one. But right now, they are way out of my price range for the size I need. Maybe in a year or so I'll be able to get one.

Hey John

Wheels can be cleaned either with the tire on or off. They are easier to manuver around with the tire off, but either way is fine. If you clean them up before mounting the tire, you're going to have to clean up some greasy hand prints after the tire guy is finished mounting the tires

Let me know when you're ready for me to take care of your car. This is a busy time of year for me, so please be patient if I can't get you right in.
