Subaru inverter generators feature the latest in inverter generator technology. Models in the line include the R1700i at 1,650 watts, the RG3200iS at 3,200 watts, and the RG4300iS at 4,300 watts.
The advanced inverter technology significantly reduces running sound. Subaru inverter generators run the engine at a slower speed for low power use and automatically increase speed as more electrical power is required. Further sound reduction is achieved through the advanced reverse cooling design. This allows the generators to be fully enclosed in a sound-absorbing poly-resin enclosure for near silent operation.
Producing clean power for the most sensitive electronic equipment, the R1700i is powered by Subaru’s EH09-2 OHV (overhead valve) gasoline engine; the RG3200iS and RG4300iS models are powered by Subaru’s EX OHC (overhead cam) gasoline engines.
Generator operation is streamlined through the addition of a microcomputer, which monitors and controls the voltage and frequency of the power output. Additionally, it monitors the temperature of the electronics and protects the generator from overloading and the user from electrical shorts.
All Subaru inverter generators come with a unique one-touch control system that allows all engine functions to be controlled with a turn of a dial.
Subaru inverter generators are manufactured by Fuji Heavy Industries.

These units are fully equipped with dual tail-brake lights, 1-7/8-inch coupler and a swing tongue jack.

Toughstake sand stakes for tents use new and innovative patented technology for anchoring tents in sand. The Toughstake is designed to handle large wind loads normally found in desert and beach areas. Historically, tents are staked in the sand only to have the wind continually work the stakes free from the ground. This usually results in the tent falling down or blowing away. All ordinary sand stakes work in the same manner: the guy-lines of the tent or rainfly are attached to the top of the stake. Over time, and with little force, the wind will work the stake out of the sand. Other manufacturers have tried to solve this problem with either a large, wing-shaped object, a screw auger, nylon bags of sand or increased length. Each of these designs is futile when experiencing high wind loads. In addition, the weight and bulk of standard stakes makes them difficult to store and pack. Toughstake sand stakes are designed to be a solution for this centuries-old problem.
Toughstake is suitable for securing a large tent or awning in sand or snow. The large Toughstake is manufactured from 6061 T6 aluminum, which is lightweight (only 7.0 ounces), and the stakes nest together, which minimizes the footprint for transportation.
The minute any wind load hits your tent or awning, normal stakes begin to slowly work out of the ground and ultimately fail.
Toughstake sand and snow anchors eliminate the small load displacements which lead to failure. In addition, Toughstake sand and snow anchors have over 10 times the holding force of normal stakes. We recommend using the large Toughstake sand and snow anchor for larger tents, awnings, pop up awnings and large outfitter wings. In beach sand, the large Toughstake can hold up to 275 pounds before any movement occurs.
Ostrich feather centrepieces
Ostrich feather centrepiece kits from Wholesale Event Solutions include everything event planners need to create their own centrepieces. They come with a 24-inch glass trumpet vase, 20 8- to 22-inch ostrich wing plumes, a foam bouquet holder to hold the feathers in place and gel water bead pearls. Users can customize by choosing their own colors. To assemble the centrepieces, the user puts the quill ends of the ostrich feathers into the foam bouquet holder, starting at the bottom and moving around the holder in a circular motion and upward direction until reaching the top. Then the stem of the foam bouquet holder holding the feathers is placed into the vase. For an even more stunning effect, decorators can place floralytes in the vases and put the feather centerpiece on a centerpiece mirror or a light base. Acrylic crystal diamond confetti and battery tealights are good additional touches.
