Those who have been using RIDGID power tools know that they provide clean and reliable power through their line of portable generators. The RIDGID 6800 Watt Generator is one of the power tools they provide, engineered to cater for all the toughest types of power needs either at home or at a jobsite. It has an idle-down feature that automatically makes the engine to go idle once power is no longer required, meaning wear and tear are prevented not only on the alternator but also the engine, reducing the noise and overall increasing the runtime. The generator delivers running watts at 6800 or 8500 at starting or surge watts and also has a big fuel tank holding 8 gallons up to about 11 or so hours in terms of runtime in case of a 50 percent load.
The RIDGID 6800 Watt Generator features an armour alternator that has an AVR, making sure it gives 6800 watts of reliable and clean power that makes sure one is able to power just about everything from table saw, PC to a laptop. It features a unique removable type of control panel allowing the moving or mounting of essential outlets and controls just about anywhere they might be needed, while at the same time the monitoring system shows the essential functions such as hertz, voltage, hours of usage and wattage. It reminds one when maintenance time is on.
The RIDGID 6800 also has a hardwearing zero-gravity type of frame design and tires that are never flat, allowing the unit to remain protected. Transporting it is much easier even when the conditions are just tough. To meet all the power needs, the outlet panel has 20 Amp types of standard outlets as well as a twist lock of 240V 30 Amp. The generator also has a commercial warranty of 3 years to add to all the important features it has.

All the switches, electrical panel, wheels and frame are top quality and way above the top and delivered with a battery. It also runs smoothly and starts easy. With the idle-down feature, there is a guarantee of saving fuel while reducing noise in case the RIDGID 6800 has been lightly loaded, something adored by many users. Functionally, the unit comes with awesome output power and it can also be expected not to flinch even when huge power loads such as AC unit and hot water kind of heater are in use. In other words, while the 3 year warranty makes the decision on RIDGID 6800 Watt Generator much easier, you can be sure of a lot of power and solid performance.
