compost toilet, generator & power tools

One of the first purchases before I even bought the land was an invertor/generator, good for sensitive equipment like laptops & mobile phones as well as being able to run power tools, cement mixer etc.. 1451806539322.jpg IMAG1063 (2).jpgI knew from previous experience I wasn’t good at the pull start option so invested in a key start, I start it off my deep cycle battery, easy easy !!  I don’t want to use this to power my home but more as backup for charging batteries, running power tools etc…  I had a very good friend visit who luckily showed me how to do a basic oil change & spark plug change on my generator – it was alot simpler than I thoIMAG1918.jpgught ! I also purchased an electric second hand cement mixer which is always handy doing a project like this and runs well all day off the generator.
