Nice piece of kit, sadly at 91dBA the noise level is too high.
I find the Wolf Leisure Power Genie WPG1200 1200 Watt at 58dBA somewhat quieter. (Cannot claim it has a perfect sinewave, but the quote states "Inverter voltage stability is often more stable than the normal mains supply which makes them ideal for operating sensitive electronics such as computers, TV's, DVD's, PA systems etc."
Some sites we've been on have a limited period for running generators.
------------- In the beginning there was darkness.
Then I bought a tent.

Interesting that they quote a distance of 7m. If they quoted a distance of 14m they could claim a sound level of 63dB, which would be like a normal conversation 1 metre away. At 3.5m the sound level would increase to 75dB and at 1.75m it would be 81dB. Any closer and you should be wearing earplugs! Note that they measure this at 25% rated output i.e. less than 500 watts. what happens when you plug the hair straighteners in?
My vote, building site YES... Campsite NO
