Quiet Portable Generators Reviews

In the past, finding a quiet portable generator was a real challenge, and often times the quietest portable generator you could find would still be a disturbance to you and anyone close by. Recognizing this, manufacturers have gone to great lengths to offer a range of quiet portable generators in all different sizes and capabilities. It logically follows that the quietest portable generators are those that are the most compact and offer the smallest overall power outage (especially modern portable inverter generators), but you’d be surprised at how quiet even the highest powered portable generators can be these days.

Our expert team has reviewed hundreds of portable generators from a range of trusted manufacturers, and selected these models as the quietest of quiet portable generators on the market today. We have selected portable generators from different power classes and usage types, rather than just providing you with the quietest generators available (as they would all be small, lower power generators). We have also been sure to select generators that are reliable, offer a good overall build quality and have been shown to perform consistently over time – after all, there’s no point in having a quiet portable generator if it’s not going to perform.
