I decided to write a review on StormCat 800W/900W 2 horsepower (HP) 3600 Revolutions Per Minute (RPM) super-portable two-stroke engine Generator after about a month of active usage.
This is the second portable generator I have purchased since moving down to the east. The first was a Tiger max 800W portable generator with about 4hrs run time.
Storm Cat (harbor freight) portable generator rated 800 Watts and Max 900 Watts goes conveniently with all my devices including a student-sized mini-refrigerator.
It is one of the best Portable gas engine generators out there with up to 7 amperes output and run-time of about 5 hours. Small power tools and appliances with me have all worked very conveniently with it.
The Storm Cat 800W/900W 2 HP 3600 RPM super-portable two stroke engine generator features:
- 220 VAC / 60Hz /7A Rated Output

My Verdict and Experiences
The Storm Cat (officially distributed by harbor freight) 900 Peak/800 Running Watts portable 2 horsepower 2 stroke gas engine generator has so far worked very efficiently for all my electronic devices including the student-sized mini-refrigerator.
Before use, I bought the 1 litre sealed 2 cycle engine oil and mixed properly with fuel following the guide contained in the manual, watched it closely for stability before connecting my electronic appliances.
I haven’t had any issue with the machine yet and can easily recommend the brand alike to friends and acquaintances.
The official price of the Storm Cat two-stroke engine portable generator from the official distributor’s website is $129.99 but I bought mine for N16,000 ($99) at Asa road, Aba.
With this, we can conclude that a person with 14,000 – 18,000 Nigerian Naira (N) can buy the generator a brand new.
