At the Portable Generator Grader, you’ve found your home for the best unbiased portable generator reviews around. My name is Ray Bolger. No, not the actor, just a regular guy who likes to look before he leaps. I’m the kind of guy who window shops before making important purchase decisions. I want you to understand that to buy a portable generator, also known as an engine-generator or a gen set, IS an important decision.
The reason that I started this site is that I was searching for my first portable generator and spent weeks trying to find the right one. I was preparing for the power outages that happen periodically where I live. I figured that even when there was no power emergency, that it would prove valuable around the house.
