A person I work with is moving and selling her generator. She has a Multiquip 5000. I can pick this up for under $1000. I know they are expensive. My question is would this generator be suitable for a home backup. It seems to be more of a worksite generator. I'm also not sure about the high cycle part of the generator. Any help on this would be a appreciated.

Thanks

The high cycle side (180 hz) is used for specific tools commonly found in the concrete industry.

The continuous rating on the 60 hz output is 3.6 kw which may or may not be enough to meet your emergency needs - time to do a survey of what you need to operate to determine your wattage requirements.
