Powermate PM3000i P0080601 Gas Inverter Generator 3000 Watt

Good news – we’re finally starting to see generators come back into stock at places like Amazon and Walmart.  We’ve received notice that Amazon will soon be back in stock with the Powermate brand of generators including the Powermate PM3000i P0080601 Gas Inverter Generator 3000 Watt model.  Rated 4.4 out of 5 stars on Amazon and priced at just $699, for its reputation and value a person could do a lot worse.  The one drawback is that unit isn’t shipping until November so there is a waiting list for coming inventory.

The pandemic has caused supply shortages in many areas including quiet generators.  Most suppliers as well as Amazon have been out of stock in virtually every model.   This combined with a start to the hurricane season has put an extreme demand on generators.   For example a search performed on Amazon shows nearly every model is out of stock and each page listings features the same notice…

Currently unavailable.
We don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock.
This is why if you’re looking for a solid and quiet invertor generator, we’d recommend that you place your order on the Powermate PM3000i as we don’t expect them to last long with current demand and world wide shortage.
