Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Generator Reviews

Our generator reviews include heavy-duty portable models as well as lightweight inverters for quiet, clean operation at the job site or shop. We also review portable generators that provide versatile power for the home or recreational use. Some of these models also appeal to the tradesman for jobsite as well as project use. Of course, small shops find generators suitable for emergency backup and other applications. Power Generator Reviews and Inverters Smaller power generators typically run on gasoline. Newer products on the market, however, feature battery powered technology. Solar generator technology is also hitting the market, and more products are due this year and next. Mid-sized portable models run on either gasoline or propane. These deliver more wattage for heavier duty applications or larger jobsite use. If you need to run a 15-amp power tool (or more than one) look for a portable generator with enough output wattage to get the job done. With these generator reviews, pay attention to the maximum power output. Also look for features, such as the number of outlets, maximum sustained power output.

EGO Nexus Power Station Review | Modular Battery Inverter

The EGO Nexus Power Station Offers Balances Customizable Capacity, Power, and Price The EGO Nexus Power Station is giving lithium-ion power supplies a kick in the pants with its unorthodox modular design.

EGO Nexus Power Station Video Review

The EGO Nexus Power Station is giving lithium-ion power supplies a kick in the pants with its unorthodox design. I say unorthodox, but outside of the Kohler enCube and Goal Zero products, there aren’t many big names in the battery-powered inverter space taking on 2000-watt gas generator/inverters, so I guess they’re all unorthodox. In any case, this is the […]

EGO Nexus power station tool-only

EGO Nexus Power Station Now Available as Tool-Only

We reviewed the EGO Nexus Power Station earlier this year—forcing it to power saws, shop fans, refrigerators, and more. Until today, you had to buy the unit for around $1,200 and it came with two EGO 7.5Ah batteries. But what if you already have several EGO batteries? EGO now offers the Nexus Power Station as […]
