Ultimate Protection, Ultimate Performance

Keeping America Powered for Over 20 Years

Pros and homeowners who want the best trust NorthStar generators’ proven history of providing utility-grade electricity for reliable backup power, job sites, home projects, recreation and more. For over 20 years, NorthStar has set the portable power standard by engineering, assembling and rigorously testing all generator models at our state-of-the-art facility in Faribault, MN. Only premium quality components are used and each generator is backed by an industry-leading warranty. Trust NorthStar for dependable power in every situation, performance you can count on in emergencies and on the job.

Trusted in Emergencies 

Powered by Honda Reliability

low distortion generator

This NorthStar generator uses a top-of-the-line, commercial-grade Honda engine. This amazingly reliable, smooth-running engine provides everything you need on the job or in emergencies — easy-start convenienc

e, improved power, greater fuel efficiency, longer run times and quieter operation.

Clean Power Keeps Electronics and Appliances Safe

Today’s appliances and electronics need clean power to run effectively. Clean power is smooth,

 steady power with low harmonic distortion. With less than 6% harmonic distortion at full load — the same as electricity from the utility company — this NorthStar generator provides reliable performance whenever you need it. Other brands advertise no load distortion levels yet actually have distortion levels as high as 20-30% at full load. Be sure to compare distortion levels at full load rating.

Engineered To Perform

Copper Heads Are Worth their Weight in Gold

Generator heads are often overlooked when it comes to choosing a generator. But their importance is key. NorthStar generators use oversized generator heads with 100% copper windings to provide the ultimate reliability and performance. Unlike other brands that use aluminum heads, we use copper‐wound brushless heads to allow your generator to run at full load continuously for weeks, if necessary, without the risk of overheating.

Less Vibration Means Less Wear, Longer Life

Excessive vibration is enemy number one to generators, causing premature wear and failure of generator components. Our advanced V‐mount vibration isolation system helps create a solid foundation to extend generator life, adding optimum flexibility and support. Captive vibration isolation mounts protect the generator when being transported and an optimized vibration control system provides smoother operation and less metal fatigue.

More Outlets Handle More Jobs

When you’re facing a power outage or a demanding project, it’s good to have options and this NorthStar generator gives you plenty. Four outlets allow you to power your tools, appliances and essentials.

Built To Last

Engineered to Last Up to 8 Times Longer generated tested

When it comes to quality, we’re in a class of our own. NorthStar generators are designed and manufactured to last up to eight times longer than other brands.

Over 1000 Hours of Testing

Nobody tests generators more than we do. NorthStar engineers test each generator design to the point of failure to make sure your generator won’t fail you. Thousands of hours of rigorous real-world testing situations in our Faribault, MN testing facility ensure optimum performance and maximum life. A test report is included with every generator to verify it is as good as the one we tested.

Best Generator I've Ever Owned
October 12, 2014
 from Ny and Miami
"This generator is absolutely the most reliable one I've ever owned, and it's my 5th generator. Had other Hondas and Pramacs that only went a couple hundred hours before fatal breakdowns.
This North Star generator was run 14-16 hours a day, for 2 years now, June to September, then run once a week for 10 hours a day in the cooler months.
Used to power air conditioning, charge batteries.
Unbelievably, the thing works like brand new still!
Starts first pull, runs at a stable 3600rpm (no surging or skipping), produces excellent sin wave form power, better than some public utility companies.
I've used Mobil 1 Synthetic, which really smooths out the engine and quiets it down.
I'm running it more and more now, just to see if it can be killed. A truly amazing generator. Best quality available on the market."

Provided great power for a 6 day outage!
August 13, 2012
 from Lynchburg, VA
"We had a power outage here recently that lasted for 6 days, and we had just filled our freezer with one-quarter of a cow, so we were looking at a huge meat loss. Thankfully a neighbor had one of these NorthStar generators, and we swapped it back and forth several times a day, and kept all of our freezers safe and sound until the power came back on.
I like the Honda engine without the Honda generator price, and this unit started with a single pull just about every time. With our load (recharging the kid's handheld games, running some house fans, and the freezer), the generator would run for just about 3 hours on a 1/2 gallon of gas, and the 105 degree temperatures outside didn't seem to bother it.
I liked it so much that I purchased one of my own.
The one consideration you need to keep in mind is whether you need a 240 volt output or not, which this does not have. In hindsight, I likely should have gotten one that supports 240 volts so I could run my well pump."

 from Soap Lake Washington
"I bought this generator about 10 yrs ago to use on our horse camping rig,truck camper horse trailer. All horse camping areas around, here are primitive, only a place to park. We regularly went for 7 -10 days and the batteries in camper dont last that long,and it is a slow job to charge with diesel truck and charger in camper. I bought this little gen set to charge batteries,I charged 2 at a tine with 2 chargers running off gen.way faster than truck. It worked great and I also used it in the bucket of my tractor when I built the fences and barn on our new place before the power was put in. It ran the 10' table saw and chop saw along with the skill saw and drill, very handy. The little Honda engine is great, starts on 1-2 pulls allthe time even after setting for long periods of time. As aresult of this performance I also bought Northerns 10000 watt Honda powered gen set for standby power great running mach. Northerns 2700 watt gen is a GREAT LITTLE GENERATOR."

Well Worth the Money
February 1, 2012
 from Chester, Virginia (Metro Richmond)
"I purchased this NorthStar Generator with the Honda 5 HP Engine back in the 1990's. We've used it to power our Freezer, Refrigerator, TV, Lamps, and Fans during several extended electricity outages from a major ice storm and two hurricanes. The longest period of use was two weeks during Hurricane Irene last August. It has never failed us. I gave it 5 stars due to it's very high quality components and quiet, smooth operation and automatic shut-down for low oil. I've ordered an extended run 5 gal. auxiliary gas tank from Northern Tool so I don't have to get up during the night to refill the small factory gas tank. All I can say is that we've had earthquakes (yes..here in Virginia...believe it or not), tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and ice storms. The only thing we're missing is a sunami. We keep it on our screened back porch and run the heavy-duty extension cord through a kitchen window with a foam rubber strip sealing the window when lowered. With this little generator we feel like we're as prepared as we can be for whatever comes along."

Portable and quiet. Runs a 15A saw
January 18, 2012
 from Roanoke, VA
"I bought this generator to run power tools at my (off-grid) barn. I run a single 15 amp (table or miter) saw at a time plus lighting. It is perfectly sized for this. I also like this generator because it is very quiet compared to others. It is also relatively easy to transport. It can be moved by hand for short distances."

Good solid generator
October 18, 2011
 from North Carolina
"Note that this is the first generator I have ever purchased, but I am very satisfied with it.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because of the price. I think it was worth it to pay extra for solid products made in the USA. Originally I was going to purchase another gen from Northern Tool that was rated at 3200 watts and a max of 4000 watts.
Two items made this one win over the other product:
1) After adding up the total watts I needed, I realized that 800 to 1000 watts or so would be enough. 2400 watts is triple the 800, so this one makes sense.
2) This generator was light enough that I could pick it up on my own. I did purchase a small dolly to strap it to, to roll from the garage to outside, but I can pick it up if I need to.
3) Made in the USA.
Ran it for 2 hours over the weekend. I'm sure it would have run longer if I had filled the tank 100%
For novices like me: Don't forget to ground the base of the gen to a proper ground. On this one, I unscrewed a nut on the base, put on a ground wire. The other end of the ground wire was grounded a pipe in my garage."

Real Value.
September 11, 2011
 from Richmond, VA
"I've had this generator for about 5 years now. I bought it mainly for power outages at home. It has gotten me through several "outage events", including 6 days without power just a couple of weeks ago, thanks to Hurricane Irene. It powers: 2 refrigerators, entertainment system, 3 fans, 4 lights, the coffee maker, and of course my wife's hair dryer along with a few other miscellaneous items. Never a problem. Starts on 1 or 2 pulls even after being stored for several months.
I would give it 5 stars if it weren't for the incredibly small gas tank. I only get about 3 hours per tank and it's a real bother to have to keep filling it. I'm thinking about taking the advice of another reviewer and hooking it up to a 6 gallon outboard motor gas tank.
If you are looking for a small but dependable generator, you can't go wrong with this one."

Great Little Work Horse
August 21, 2011
 from Inver Grove Heights, MN
"I really wanted this generator to replace a 30 year old Honda generator that lost its voltage... and needed one quick. I showed up at the store and was told that they were sold out. They could get one shipped to my house within the week or I could drive to another store. Then the sales guy added, or.... you can buy the floor model and get it for the on-line price. About $20 cheaper. I bought it, along with the oil and cart. They printed out the user manual for me too, and carried it to my car. I really like this store. Anyway, it is a great generator and I am so pleased with its performance these past 2 months. I will be back in another 30 years to get another Honda engine generator from Northern Tool."
