The Generac GP generator series does not supply clean power. You would wan to look for a generator with less than 6 % total harmonic distortion. Please see a recommendation below for a few models that are safe for sensitive equipment.

No, THD is above 5% so the sine wave coming off this isn't great for, say, a flat-panel television. Now, if you are plugged into a UPS with a power conditioner you might be okay. But this is pushing it.

answer 2
Because there is no industry standard for testing sound levels on portable generators, we do not currently list a decibel rating for any of our portable generators. The GP3250 unit does not feature idle control. The larger GP series units, such as the GP15000E and GP17500E, do feature idle control.

Question

What does low tone muffler mean?

Does that indicate the frequency of the sound is low, or does it have anything to do with the loudness?

It's likely not as quiet as the inverter types, but has anyone that has it compared it to any others in actual use?

The low tone muffler will quiet the noise of the generator more than a generator without this type of muffler. The Inverter generators are smaller units so they are also very quiet.
