Selecting a wedding venue is one of the first decisions you’ll make as an engaged couple — it will influence your vendors, budget, décor, and even attire.

  1. Estimate how many people you’d like to invite to your big day,since not all places can accommodate a wide variety of wedding sizes. Nearly every venue will have a guest count minimum. If your final attendance number winds up being smaller than you had anticipated and you have to pay for extra plates, it is recommended asking the venue if they can throw in a couple more appetizers during cocktail hour or add extra time to the reception festivities.
  2. Sit down with your fiancé and figure out how much you are willing to spend. Do your homework and find out what the going rates are in your desired wedding location. Online venue directories allow you to search by location, price, and venue type, among other criteria. Determining how much you can afford will help you avoid the heartache of falling in love with a place that’s well out of your price range — you don’t want to spend more than 50% of your total wedding budget on your venue. Rushing into contracts before you have all of the figures in front of you may leave you “house poor,” and you’ll have to figure out what to cut out to compensate for overspending.
  3. Check out wedding planners’ and photographers’ blogs to see real wedding photos of venues you’re interested in visiting. Since they aren’t staged, you’ll get a much better idea of what things can (and really do) look like. It can be especially helpful if you are unable to visit the venue during the season you’ll be getting married.
  4. Choose your wedding date.“Wedding dates can be significant for a variety of reasons; some couples choose to wed on the day they met, their parents’ or grandparents’ anniversary date, or for auspicious reasons that numbers have in their culture or religion. Others may pick a specific time of year and season but not a specific day. If you can be flexible with your date and choose an off-season month, you’ll often be able to secure the venue of your dreams at a lower rate. For example, you’d likely pay less for a Friday wedding in February than you would for a Saturday in June. Time of year, day of the week, and your engagement length will all impact your negotiating leverage with vendors.
  5. Since dates can book up quickly at popular venues, call around to check on date availability before going to see places in person. (If you’re not getting married on-site, a good rule of thumb is to check in with your place of worship first before booking the reception venue.)
  6. The venue will play a huge role in shaping the ambiance for your wedding, so it’s important to have a vision of what you want to portray for your big day.
  7. Pick your colors or theme after choosing your venue.“Often, we have brides tell us their colors are purple and silver, and the venue they’ve chosen has ivory walls and gold chairs. Think about how the colors and theme complement your venue space for a cohesive look.
  8. Barns, farms, and ranches appeal to rustic loving brides and grooms. Many now include elegant touches such as chandeliers, polished floors, outdoor fire pits, and twinkle lights strung between trees.
  9. An all-inclusive ballroom or hotel is the perfect backdrop for a classic fairy tale wedding. If you’re a traditionalist looking for something a little different, consider a castle or a historic home or estate, which have the ornate details you crave with a little more character.
  10. A venue with an abundance of natural landscape, such as a vineyard or beachfront resort, provides a stunning backdrop while reducing how much you’ll need to spend on décor details. “Nothing can beat Mother Nature!”
  11. More couples are embracing non-traditional and eclectic venues, such as zoos, planetariums, and mountaintops. “The bride and groom can save on flowers and décor while still having a unique event space.
  12. For a small, intimate affair, consider renting a vacation home. “They may charge a week’s worth in rent, but it can still be equal to or less than renting a traditional reception venue.
  13. Couples with a modern sensibility gravitate towards industrial warehouses, city lofts, and art galleries. Clean lines and bright whites offer a blank canvas with the ultimate flexibility in designing a unique wedding vision. Just keep in mind that rentals (tables, chairs, china, linens, etc.) often aren’t included in the package, so you’ll have to factor in the cost of those elements to get a more accurate sense of the overall price.
  14. Use your venue to tell your love story.Some couples are choosing venues that are sentimental to them, such as the museum where they first met or a private estate dating back hundreds of years because it was where the groom proposed. “This trend makes us really happy because it’s a concentration on the couple, not the wedding world. A celebration of two people is all it’s about!”
  15. There’s also a shift towards weekend celebrations as opposed to a singular day. Couples are choosing to take over more remote locales, where their loved ones can stay and celebrate for an entire weekend.
  16. Email or call prospective venues to schedule official walk-throughs with representatives who can answer all of your questions (come prepared with a pen and paper to take notes). If possible, try to make arrangements to visit the site when it’s set up for a wedding. This way, you’ll be able to assess the size of your reception area once all of the tables, DJ or band equipment, sweetheart table, and any other necessary components are set up. Don’t bring your entire family for an initial site visit. While it’s great to have feedback from parents and your maid of honor, limit the first appointment to just you and your fiancé (and a planner, if you have one). Venue selection is a very personal choice, and it sets the tone for your entire event.
  17. “Don’t book the first venue you see. You may want to get it over with, but trust me. Select at least three places that may be a good fit for your budget and style; then write down the pros and cons of each one.
  18. Factor in all of the various spaces you will need (ceremony, cocktails, dinner, and dancing). Think about how to use the rooms and grounds for different purposes — there should be a seamless flow from one portion to the next. If you’re getting married on-site, you’ll save yourselves multiple site fees, as well as transportation from one location to the other.
  19. Take photos and videos on your cell phone of the elements you liked and disliked at each venue. (If you’re visiting multiple locations over the course of a few days, it helps to take a photo of the sign/exterior of each venue so that you don’t accidentally get them jumbled up.)
  20. Visit each venue with an open mind.Couples often end up booking a venue that looked so-so online because the photos didn’t do the grounds justice, or they fall in love with something they didn’t expect initially.
  21. Ask for referrals. Many venues have great relationships with past clients who would be more than happy to let you know about their experiences. Ask about the service — was anyone difficult to work with? Or did they go above and beyond to ensure the event was a smashing success? How was the food? Was there anything they wish they would have done differently?
  22. Pay special attention to the lighting.If a venue is too dark, it can make it tricky for your photographer to capture all of the details that you worked so hard to plan. You’ll also need to find out whether the venue you’re considering offers additional lighting services, such as up lighting, intelligent lighting, or projected gobos in-house, or if you’ll need to hire an outside vendor.
  23. Send a thank-you e-mail to the venue representative with a recap of what you discussed each time. This way, everything is in writing, and you won’t forget.
  24. Consider how guests will get from Point A to Point B. “Transportation and parking vary depending on whether you’re getting married in a city or out in the country, whether the ceremony and reception will take place at the same venue, and whether guests are local or it’s a destination wedding. If the venue you’re considering doesn’t offer overnight accommodations, research nearby hotels or inns, including how much they cost and whether they have enough rooms available. Is there on-site parking for guests at the venue, and if so, is it free or will you cover any fees? Is there nearby off-site parking, such as street parking or garages? If parking isn’t readily available, are there valet options that you can provide for local guests (some venues charge extra for this) or will you need shuttle buses and/or limos for the bridal party?
  25. Since weather can be unpredictable, it’s crucial to have a contingency plan for an outdoor wedding. Before booking, ask what the plan is and walk through it with them. Make sure that you like the backup spaces in the event of inclement weather; if you don’t, then you may want to consider another venue or hiring a planner to help out along the way.
  26. Some venues offer an on-site coordinator to assist you once you get to the property. Usually, they will help set up your wedding and solve any issues that may arise. Since they don’t offer the full range of services that an outside wedding planner would provide, it’s important to determine what they’re responsible for and whether you need to hire additional outside help.
  27. Determine if there are any vendor restrictions.“Preferred” vendors are usually businesses vetted by the venue who work there often and know all the ins and outs of the spaces. “Some venues have strict policies on vendors and you may not be allowed to use the planner you wanted to work with or the photographer you already booked. Other establishments may use this list to suggest businesses they like to work with but ultimately allow couples to bring in other vendors. (More than likely, the venue will only need their proof of liability insurance.) Have an open dialogue with your venue and go a step further to find out why they are “preferred.” Is it because the vendor has experience working at the venue, or did they pay to be on the list strictly as marketing? “If it’s the latter, you may want to search other vendors.
  28. If the venue offers catering in-house, find out if you can do a tasting before the wedding. Consider bringing your parents along to get their opinions, and keep your guests’ tastes in mind in addition to your personal favorites. You’ll also need to make the venue aware of any special dietary restrictions. Drink preferences may come into play as well: Are you and your guest’s connoisseurs of the vine, or are craft beers more up your alley? There’s no need to break the bank on a premium bar if you won’t be pouring fancy cognacs and vodkas.
  29. Ask if you’ll have exclusive use of the venue.It’s important to know how many functions they’ll have going on at once and how much interaction there will be between your guests and theirs (if any). The privacy factor differs for every space; some venues may offer separate restrooms and parking areas for guests from different events, while others have the rooms set close together, so you might hear someone else’s music pumping from down the hall. If you’re getting married outdoors in a public space, such as a park or beach, be aware that strangers may stop to give you their good wishes or find their way into the background of your wedding photos.
  30. Venue packages vary greatly, including the amount of time you’ll have for your party and any overtime fees. If the wedding has to end at 9 p.m. sharp because of noise restrictions but you want to dance until dawn, then you may want to keep the festivities going with an after-party elsewhere.
  31. Your date isn’t officially reserved until you sign your contract and, in most cases, make a deposit.
  32. “Make sure when you are looking for potential venues that you clearly understand what’s included and what isn’t.” For example, if you’re getting married at a beautiful historic estate, but they don’t have any upgraded electrical systems, you will need to factor the cost of renting generators into your budget. Read the fine print and triple-check that everything you and your site coordinator discussed is included in the contract.
  33. When negotiating, it’s easier to work with a substitution than to deduct from the bottom line. For example, if you don’t want an ice sculpture that’s part of the venue package, perhaps you can ask the venue to remove it and add something else instead. “Most importantly, remember to be kind and thoughtful when you ask to negotiate anything. A grateful heart will give back to you in many ways.
  34. Don’t get pressured into signing right away. If a venue has your desired date open, but you aren’t ready to book, ask if they can place a soft hold or give you a courtesy call if someone else is interested in your date. (Some places may charge a small deposit fee to hold your wedding date if you haven’t signed a contract yet, which is usually taken off the final bill.) Take a few days to talk it over with your fiancé and make sure that your financials are doable in the time frame that you have.
  1. You will usually give the first deposit at the signing. Some venues will accept the first payment on a creditcard, but after that, it will be cashier’s check or cash, so be prepared when those payments are due.

Winter is in full swing, and the cold has kept many a grill in storage for the winter. Parties and get-togethers take place exclusively indoors. Patios and back decks which are centerpieces during the summer sit unused for months.

Home isn’t the only place affected by the cold. At work sites, there’s no such thing as a winter break! However, cold fingers can make it a challenge to get things done. Staying on schedule can quickly become a challenge inPatio Heater (40,000 BTU, Radiant) frigid conditions.

Renting a heater for your worksite or patio is the perfect solution for wintertime gatherings and construction alike!

Sully’s Tool & Party Rental offers multiple types of heaters for rental. You can either pick up your rental or we will happily deliver.

Kerosene Heaters: Our kerosene heaters are perfect for work sites and outdoor events alike. All of our kerosene heaters take either kerosene or diesel, so you can fuel upwith what’s most convenient for you!

Propane Heaters: Choose from patio heater or a forced air heater. Both types are great at circulating warm air around an area, whether it’s a room or an open space.

FAQ About Heaters

Have questions? Check out some of the most frequently asked questions below.

Kerosene vs. Propane: What’s the Difference?
Since both kerosene and propane heaters produce heat and usually look much alike, you may be wondering if there’s any difference between the two.

Propane heaters use cylinders filled with natural gas. While these cylinders can be large, there is no risk of contaminants getting into the fuel. Propane heaters are usually larger and can be bulky, which may make them a better option for stationary use – not for transporting around a job site. Propane heaters may pose a slightly higher risk of carbon monoxide poisoning if used in a space which is not properly ventilated.

Kerosene uses liquid fuel such as diesel or kerosene. Kerosene can also come in cylinders much like propane, although these are usually smaller than propane cylinders. Kerosene heaters are usually easier to transport around a job site. These types of heaters are not as environmentally friendly as propane heaters. The risk of carbon monoxide poisoning with a kerosene heater is present, but not as high as with a propane heater.

Which is better for a Work Site?
Either a kerosene or propane heater will work for a worksite. The type you choose depends on the size of the project, the location, the duration, and whether the heater will be moved regularly. Our friendly staff at Northside Tool Rental can help with any questions or concerns you may have!

Which is better for a Winter Grill Out?

Planning a party but do not want your guests feeling trapped inside? Our Patio Heater is perfect for you! It’s easy to set up and use. The wide umbrella of heat this heater provides allows your guests to pull up their chairs around the base to enjoy themselves while staying warm.

What’s a BTU, Anyway?
BTU stands for ‘British Thermal Unit’. A BTU is a measure of thermal energy – in other words, the amount of work it takes to heat one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. The higher the BTUs your heater has, the more powerful it will be.

What is Infrared Heat?
Infrared heaters work by producing heat from infrared light – a form of light that is invisible to our eyes. The heat that these types provide is almost instant, which is especially helpful in very cold conditions! However, infrared heaters aren’t for everyone. Unlike space heaters, they heat a specific area – not the whole room.

Pros of Infrared:

  • Provides instant heat
  • Quiet operation
  • Infrared doesn’t dry out a room

Cons of Infrared:

  • The coils of an infrared heater can heat up to dangerously hot levels
  • Heats a limited amount of space, usually directly in front of the coils
  • Stops heating when off – no residual heat from a unit that is cooling down

Safety Tips

When it’s cold, it’s very tempting to turn on your portable heater full blast. But before you crank up the dial to maximum, keep in mind these safety tips:

  • Just like your personal home heaters, don’t leave a commercial-grade heater unattended.
  • Set your heater on a flat, stable surface, and make sure it’s secure before using.
  • Don’t touch the surface of the heater with your bare hand while the heater is operating.
  • Make sure that any heaters at a work site are in a well-ventilated area. Both kerosene and propane heaters produce carbon monoxide, and exposure to significant amounts can cause illness or death.
  • Keep all flammable objects such as curtains, posters, etc, at least three feet away from the heater.
  • Test your smoke alarm regularly.

  1. Rent a Tent to Plan for the Unexpected! When you don’t have to worry about the weather for the day of your party, it gives you more time to focus on the actual event.
  2. Tent Rentals Allow You to Take Advantage of the Outdoors! From city suburbs to gorgeous parks, campsites and marvelous mountains, you can choose the location for your event! Why have your party in a dark, musty room when you can have the magnolia trees in the Spring, picturesque sunsets in the summer, breath-taking foliage in the fall and snow-capped mountains in the winter as the backdrop for your event?
  3. Control Your Decor using a Tent. The design and decor of your event is up to you. Renting a tent is like working with a blank canvas. Many indoor venues are old and out-dated. With a tent, you can control the lighting, the table linens, the china, glassware, etc. Your event can be exactly how you imagined!
  4. Tent Rentals Provide Flexibility. A tented event can be a super casual event such as a backyard barbeque or birthday party or an ultra elegant affair such as a wedding, shower, fund raiser or anniversary party. It’s all up to you!
  5. Tents come in all different sizes and configurations. You can get very creative when planning the layout of your tented event. For example, tents can be placed around a dance floor while leaving the center open so your guests can dance under the stars! Looking for a truly unique look?
  6. The Size of Your Tent Matters! Because tents come in all different sizes, it gives you the ability to accommodate any number of guests for your event. No party is too large!
  7. Tent Rentals Provide Privacy. When having a party under a tent behind the tent walls, you and your guests can enjoy the party in private without worrying about onlookers regardless of the location. Have a party right on your front lawn!
  8. Control the Temperature Within a Rented Tent. Having a party under a tent on a very hot day allows you to stay cooler. The temperature under a tent, even with the sun beating down on it, can be up to 20-25 degrees cooler! And a tent with walls and heaters can keep you and your guests warm even on the coldest of nights!
  9. Creating a Focal Point. You can easily designate different areas of the party using tents. Who says that your party needs to be held under one tent? Multiple tents can create the perfect designation for different activities. For example, your cocktail hour can be held under a smaller tent with bistro tables and stools. Then your guests can be directed to the large main tent for dinner and dancing with large round tables and formal place settings. Top off the evening with another tent for the cake and dessert! Your event will definitely be the talk of the town the next day!
  10. TAKE YOUR TIME!!!!!! This is YOUR party! Who’s to say what time it has to end? Indoor venues almost always have a slotted time frame.

“Engagement Season” is here, which is an exciting time for us at Sully’s Party Rental!

To help you out! We have listed 10 things you need to do first to get started with your wedding planning.

1. SET A BUDGET

You shouldn’t be doing anything before deciding on your budget. Sit down with your parents, family members, or just the two of you, figure out who is contributing, how much they can contribute, and what your total budget will be. Then you can move on to #2! 

  1. CHOOSE 2-3 POSSIBLE DATES

To be safe, choose 2-3 dates to have your wedding. Think of the time of year you prefer, the weather, work schedules/vacation time, holidays, and more. Then choose your #1 preferred date, and have a #2 and #3 available in case your preferred date isn’t available. Because venues book up fast-some even book up to a year and half in advance! 

  1. START YOUR GUEST LIST

This can be a tough task because you want to invite everyone you know to your wedding. Well just remember: the more people you have, the more you have to spend.
Example: You want to have 200 guests. Your budget is $20,000. This means that you will have $100 per guest. Which may seem like a lot but if you are wanting a higher dollar venue? Then you are not even going to be close to $100 per person for food and beverage. And that doesn’t include flowers, decor, and all your other vendors!
As you can see, starting your guest list and knowing your estimated maximum guest count early is important. And keep in mind that guest counts usually go down by the time your wedding day comes around.

  1. DECIDE ON YOUR WEDDING’S STYLE

Vintage, Modern, Classic, Eclectic, Handmade, Rustic… there are SO many styles out there!  No need to design your whole wedding right now though- just know the general look and feel of how you want your wedding to be. Once you know that, it’ll be easier to move on to #5…  

  1. DECIDE ON YOUR VENUE

All of those first 4 steps above can essentially be done all in one sitting. Then once you have all of those decisions made, you can start researching and touring venues. When you’re researching and you find a venue that you like, I recommend contacting them and asking if they have any of your possible dates available. If they do, then go ahead and schedule a time to tour the venue. Give yourself a few (1 to 3 max) weeks to tour all of your possibilities (depending on how long you have before your wedding date of course), crunch numbers, envision your wedding there and then book your venue! Once you have your venue booked (meaning deposit made and contract signed), your date is secured and are on your way to getting MARRIED!

  1. RESEARCH

First and foremost, if you didn’t already hire a wedding planner during the first 5 steps, it may be something to consider as they may be able to give you excellent recommendations and save you a lot of time and frustration.

Vendors:
There are so many amazing wedding professionals out there now, and you want time to be able to choose the right ones for you. You definitely don’t want to be rushed, but at the same time, time is of the essence. When you’re researching, I recommend that you check out the vendor’s portfolio, bio, pricing info (if they have it available) and their blog. Feel free to do research on every single type of vendor you need, but the ones that are crucial and book up quickly are the photographer, videographer, and caterer. Moving on, the next steps are going to pertain to these 3 things. [After you’ve completed the following steps for the previously mentioned vendors, then you’ll move on to your entertainment, florals/event decor, rentals, invitations, and cake. And then you’ll go on to hair and makeup, transportation, tux rentals, favors, and any extras.
 

WEDDING DRESS!

Yes, it’s in caps because it’s *that* exciting! Isn’t it pretty much the very first thing you wanted to do- look at wedding dresses? You want to be sure that you research the types of dresses you like and the stores that carry them.

  1. INQUIRE WITH AND INTERVIEW VENDORS

So by now you’ve done your research and you know what vendors you like. Now it’s time to contact the vendor and find out if they’re available for your date, check on their pricing (if you want to), and schedule a consultation. The vendors will get to know you, you’ll get to know them, you’ll get down to business, and then you let them know in a few days if you want to hire them or not! I recommend meeting with up to three of each type of vendor- one if you already absolutely love them and they sell you right away, two if you’re pretty set but want to know other options and three if you’re not sure. It just really depends on you, your decision making skills, and your taste. 

  1. HIRE YOUR VENDORS

Of course the next step is to pull the trigger and hire one of those vendors that you’ve met and fallen in love with. After your consultations, try to let vendors know your decision a week or two from when they provide you with an estimate/proposal. And then hooray! You’re one step closer to your wedding day! 

  1. WEDDING DRESS!

Alright, so you have some of your vendors booked… now it’s time to take a break and go wedding dress shopping! 

  1. DESIGN & DETAIL INSPIRATION

Remember back in the first 5 steps when we had you decide on your wedding style? Well with the second round of vendors you will meet with next (florals, decor, invitations, rentals, cake) you’ll need to have a good idea of what you want your wedding to be like, so it’s time to focus on design and details!

Know that when I say “design and details”, it really just means what your wedding will look like. Design is more of a general term, and details are more of the specifics (and where your personality can really shine through!). I’m sure many of you have probably already started saving photos of things that you like and are Pinning away for your dream wedding. After all, this big, beautiful wedding world here on the internet does almost solely revolve around design and details! But you want to make sure that you have enough inspiration to be able to accurately convey to your potential vendors what it is you want for your wedding. And then in the same breath, you don’t want to have too much inspiration either! Oh and don’t forget to bring your inspiration with you to your consultations! You can probably even just pull up your Pinterest boards in your meetings.

Once you get to the last step for your first set of vendors, then move on to the next round of vendors!

So that was LONG and absolutely FULL of information, but we hope all of this will help some of you out and get you going on the right path as you start planning your wedding! There are of course other things that have to be done as you get closer to your wedding, but all of this will definitely get you started and prepare you for what is to come. And if you have any questions, please know that we are here to answer them! 

HAPPY PLANNING!!!

April 5, 2017

Setting a table, properly, isn’t as difficult as it sounds. The basic rule is to set the utensils in order of use. You begin eating a meal by using the flatware at the outside left and right, and then work toward the plate as the meal proceeds.

BASIC RULES:

Plates go in the middle smallest stacked on top, so you have the charger under the entrée, under the appetizer plate.

Silverware is placed in an even line, one inch from the edge of the table.

Knife blades always face the plate.

The napkin goes to the left of the fork, or on the plate.

The bread plate and the butter knife sit above the forks. However the bread and butter knife is optional.

The water glass stands above the dinner knife, white wine to its right and red wine top center.

The salt and pepper shakers should be a consideration of the table décor, as they are important to the meal not the decoration.

Guests will likely be invited to several graduation parties, so even consider pushing the date back to July.

Set a Budget – Yes, you want this party to be a success and memorable but you do not want to go over a dollar amount you can comfortably afford.

Rent a Tent – A graduation party is about being with friends and family. A simple canopy or framed tent placed outdoors with a dance floor, tables and chairs is usually perfect for a relaxed and casual atmosphere you are aiming for. A canopy tent is perfect for the backyard being they are designed to be staked in grass. A framed tent is designed to be setup on concrete or asphalt and is anchored. The earlier you contact Sully’s Tool and Party Rental, the better selection you will have.

20×20 seats 40-50 people comfortably.

20×30 seats 60-75 people comfortably.

20×40 seats 80-100 people comfortably.

Pick a Theme – While not completely necessary, it’s always nice to have some correlation between your invites, decorations and party favors. We have a variety of fun colorful linens (http://linenswatches.com) audio/visual products, fountains, games, concessions items, and much more.

  • Hot Dog Machine
  • Pretzel Machine
  • Sno-Cone Machine

  • Ice Table
  • Nacho Cheese Dispenser
  • Margarita Machine
  • Chocolate Fountain

Happy group people in santa hat at Xmas business  party.

Every year around the holidays, businesses throw an office holiday party to show their appreciation and to give everyone the opportunity to celebrate and relax. It’s often hard to find money and time for office holiday party planning. That’s where this list of office holiday party ideas comes in! If you have been asked to organize a holiday party for work, do not stress. A holiday party does not have to be expensive or over-the-top. Use some unique, special ideas to make the party special and to show employees that work is not all about, well, work.

Get inspired by these company holiday party ideas:

  • Throw the party at the office, but bring in a food cart or caterer to set up a fun taco or sushi bar. Alternatively, you can rent out an atrium or public space like a library for a unique venue idea.
  • Make it a costume party! Have everyone dress up in 70’s clothes, as their favorite movie character, ugly sweater party with contest, or make it a masquerade ball.
  • Revolve the party around a special cause or charity. Set up a raffle or fundraiser for the cause and do some good!
  • Corporate holiday parties can be boring. Bring in a Karaoke Machine, 80’s band or DJ and make it a singing and/or
    dance party.
  • Spend the day at a Christmas tree farm, Vineyard or fruit-picking orchard.

Planning company holiday parties should be a collaborative event, so involve as many people as are interested. Create sub-groups to handle food, decorations, the venue, and the budget, so all the work won’t end up on your shoulders.

Picking the right generator for your event or project is crucial.
It’s important to always calculate how many watts are needed. Start by making a list of all the items you need to power and how many amps each item requires to run. The number of watts is equal to amps multiplied by volts. Then simply multiply the amount of Amps you need by Volts (typically 110V), will equal the size generator you will need.

For example: if you need to run 50AMPS X 110V=5500 or higher generator.genatorgenerator-1

  • Never run a generator indoors or in partly enclosed areas such as garages. Only use outdoors and away from windows, doors, vents, crawl spaces and in an area where adequate ventilation is available. Using a fan or opening doors and windows will not provide sufficient ventilation.
  • Operate the generator only on level surfaces and where it will not be exposed to excessive moisture, dirt, dust or corrosive vapors.
  • Do not overfill the fuel tank. Always allow room for fuel expansion.
  • Never add fuel while unit is running or hot. Allow generator and engine to cool entirely before adding fuel.
  • Never store a generator with fuel in the tank where gasoline vapors might reach an open flame, spark or pilot light.
  • Do not connect your generator directly to your home’s wiring or into a regular household outlet. Connecting a portable electric generator
    directly to your household wiring can be deadly to you and others. A generator that is directly connected to your home’s wiring can ‘back feed’
    onto the power lines connected to your home and injure neighbors or utility workers.
  • The generator must be properly grounded. If the generator is not grounded, you run the risk of electrocution. We strongly recommend that you
    check and adhere to all applicable federal, state and local regulations relating to grounding.
  • Allow at least five feet of clearance on all sides of the generator when operating.

  • Keep the generator dry
  • Inspect the generator regularly and contact the nearest authorized dealer for parts needing repair or replacement.
  • Do not overload the generator. Do not operate more appliances and equipment than the output rating of the generator. A portable electric generator should be used only when necessary, and only to power essential equipment.
