Started first pull and it was quieter than expected.
I purchased the ALDI Ferrex 3300w generator on sale for $349. I think people were reluctant to buy them so they have been marked down from $399. ALDI generators have had a few bad reviews. I though I would give this new model Ferrex 3300w unit a try as most reviews were of older units.
It's a small unit, smaller than I thought it would be. It suits my needs as I won't be running it continuously. I'll use it for a back up, a portable 240v generator is big enough to run my large fridge freezer. I'll also be using it on the odd camping tri...p. I filled it full of 5w-30 oil and 91unleaded fuel then pulled the cord. It started first pull, a little rough for 10 seconds then steady. I was anticipating half a dozen pulls to get the fuel circulating before it fired up. It was a pleasant surprise. It was powerful enough to run 2 fish tanks with lighting, water and air pumps. It wasn't a very scientific test, but it did make power. My Makita lawnmower has a Briggs and Stratton e500 4 stroke ohv engine and the Ferrex was quieter than my idling mower. I would of been happy with that, but then I noticed a power saving mode switch. I pushed it and it dropped the revs 30% (guestimate). It still made enough power to run my fish tanks. It is quiet enough to run in my backyard during the day. I probably would only run it after 9am till around 3pm. It would be an annoyance to my neighbours outside those hours.
Purchased in April 2021 for $349.00.
Questions & Answers
I need to know the dba noise factor ,how long willit run on a tank of fuel
You should find the answer to your questions in the manual provided by the manufacturer. The model I had bought from Aldi broke down after 3 test starts because of poor quality . It was not possible to start the generator at all.. I would not recommend to buy this Ferrex Generator. Don't be tempted by the cheap price . You get what you pay for.
Hi Alan, did you find out this info? I emailed the customer service multiple times asking for this information also and still no reply 2 weeks later! very disappointing! I just wanted some basic questions answered and a copy of the manual so I could review before buying.....which is how I ended up here! They lost a sale as they couldn't even get back to me!
I purchased the generator followed the instructions it started first time. Tested a few items like drill and angle grinder, vacuum cleaner etc all perfect. The Decibel level is 73 at 7 metres. I have personally experienced good results with Chinese products and for the price I think 2 years warranty on this generator is as good as all the other Chinese made generators which is...... all......... of them on the market. Anyway time will tell.
