We know portable generators and our range of generators for sale online at Outbax have been chosen specifically to offer our customers the highest-performing power products for the lowest possible prices. We’re experts in the field of 4WD, camping and caravanning needs, being adventure enthusiasts ourselves. When we went looking for a generator for sale that ticked all of the boxes we needed – price, fuel efficiency, portability – we struggled to find what we needed. So, when we did come across our range of Gentrax generators, we wanted to ensure we could share the best power generators we found with the rest of Australia. And that’s what we’ve done.
So, you’re looking for a generator for sale but you’re not sure what’s going to be powerful enough, efficient enough and easy enough to cart around with you. We have created a generator buying guide designed to help you work out what kind of power needs you have and how best to meet them. You can use this guide to work out roughly what kind of wattage you’re going to need from a generator and how best to maximise the available power output. For example, if you’ve made a list of the appliances that you’ll be running using a petrol generator and the various wattage they need to work, then you’re probably looking in the region of about 3000W required.
You can definitely get a diesel and petrol power generator that’s capable of giving you that kind of output but before you make your purchase, consider how you can manage your power needs more efficiently to work out whether there is a cheaper alternative that will still offer you the electricity you need when you need it. Appliances like a refrigerator will have a different starting wattage to their running wattage which can impact how efficiently you use your generator. If you have multiple appliances with high starting wattages, then consider staggering them rather than turning them all on at the same time. Similarly, you can switch off your television while you’re cooking or switch off the lights while you’re watching television to further increase your energy output without increasing your energy needs for a petrol or diesel engine.
Not only does this save you money on running costs and upfront purchase costs, it will also save you effort and space. A portable generator should be lightweight and still powerful but the larger capacity your generator has, the heavier and more unwieldy it will become. Similarly, using a petrol generator or a diesel generator will require space to store your fuel. The less fuel you need to run your generator means the more space you have to pack everything else for your next adventure.
If you’re searching a generator for sale for use at home in the event of a power outage, then we have plenty of options for you to choose from. The size of your generator may not be as much of a problem if it’s predominantly being used as a backup power supply at home, however your running noise might have an impact. Check out our silent generator range for products that produce about as much noise as a quiet conversation and so can be run comfortable throughout the day and night without causing massive disruptions either to yourself or your neighbours. They contain a sizeable fuel tank and are capable of offering up to six hours of uninterrupted power or even longer when used in economy mode. These types of generators are designed specifically in a sound reducing casing which considerably limits noise disruption.
Our range of portable power stations are the next generation in portable generators offering users access to reliable and continuous power using fuel. . They work by storing power in powerful batteries and offer you the ability to run 12V appliances, smart devices using USB charging cords as well as an AC output for use with electrical appliances like televisions, laptop computers and a cooker. They are incredibly lightweight and designed with comfortable carry handles which makes moving them from to site to site simple and easy.

What is an inverter generator?
Our range of portable generators have consistently ranked among the best portable generators money can buy. An inverter generator uses a small petrol or diesel engine to deliver AC power in the same way that conventional generators do but it does this by converting high frequency AC voltage to DC power and then inverts back into a stable AC current. Why is this important? Because it offers uninterrupted power flow to your appliances and it’s been designed to use a more efficient engine that requires less fuel than conventional generators. They have also been designed specifically to maximise portability. This means that inverter generators are designed to be incredibly lightweight and easy to move rather than only a quick and easy means of producing onsite electricity when you need it.
Other benefits of finding an inverter generator for sale include noise reduction and environmental impact. Because they are designed to be as fuel-efficient as possible you are doing your bit for the planet and enjoying the significant reduction in noise that a smaller and more efficient engine offers.
