I am looking to purchase a generator of about 7500 continuous watts. It seems that all generators around $1000 are considered junk by some people on this forum, does everyone feel the same? This generator will probably only be used once or twice a year (hopefully)and I just can't seem to justify a Honda. Considering Westinghouse, ryobi, etc. Thank you.

I like the looks of this one: https://www.samsclub.com/sams/7500w-generator-honda-gx390-gas/prod22041931.ip
Black Max 7,500W / 9,375W Honda Powered Electric Start Bluetooth Generator

The Honda GX390 is one of the best engines out there for that size range, and the features of the generator end look to be fairly cutting-edge. I don't know of anyone that has tried one yet here, but another forum member was looking at one earlier. Don't know whether he purchased one.

The online reviews are generally positive, but a couple of folks had issues understanding the GFCI outlets, adjusting the choke, etc.

The Harbor Freight Predators also seem to have a loyal following: https://www.harborfreight.com/engines-generators/gas-engine-generators/9000-max-starting7250-running-watts-13-hp-420cc-generator-carb-with-gfci-outlet-protection-63968.html

As per your requirement Westinghouse Wgen7500 suit you which you can get below $900. But if you can compromise with wattage then yo may also go for Westinghouse Wgen5500. That also reduce the cost about half.
