Our Top Pick For Gas Generators: Firman Gas Generators | Survival Gear Systems

A generator is without question one of the most valuable investments that you can make to prepare yourself for a disaster, power outage, or going off the grid.

But when it comes to generators, Firman is admittedly a brand that not very many people have heard of in the face of more well known options such as Honda, Yamaha, Briggs & Stratton, Champion, or Ryobi.

The reason for this is because Firman is a relatively newer company in the power generator industry, which naturally means that some folks will be initially hesitant with purchasing a Firman product over a more commonly known option.

At the present, Firman is quickly growing as a company, and their products are an overall excellent value for the money due to their higher quality and lower cost. They are a part of the SUMEC group of companies, which have been around since 1978. SUMEC has a very long history when it comes to manufacturing, with the Firman brand being established in 2001, and six years later they had become the number one export brand out of China.

We chose to exclusively partner with Firman for several reasons. One, they provide excellent, personalized customer service and back the quality of their generators with a 3 year warranty. Two, their engineers are continuously developing more efficient and quiet generators. Three, they are relatively light weight for the power they offer. And four, they ship out fast to our customers.
