has anybody got or had a clarke ig 1000 suitcase inverter generator, as sold in machine mart for approx £250. if so what did you think of it ? i know honda are the best and quietest but £700 seems a lot of money just to watch the occasional bit of tv and charge up my leisure battery whilst parked up off sites . i have had clarke badged compressors before (made in italy i think ! ) and always been able to get spares etc , but never anything electronic . it seems everything is made in china now and the after sales backup from that part of the world leaves a lot to be desired ! i have read some of the previous posts on the kipor generator but i havent found anything on the clarke !
