Question Looking for an "inverter" type "Quiet" generator ... suggestions?

I'm in the market for a small generator. Specifically one of the "quiet" style inverter type generators use for Tailgating parties, RV use, etc.

I need at least 2200 watts running, but would prefer 2500 watts run.

Critical is that I want QUIET as it will be used in neighborhoods for my wife's new house flipping business. It may run for 5 or 6 hours and I don't want to bother the neighbors any more than necessary with noise while we run some tools (miter saw, floor sander, similar sized tools ... but probably only 1 tool at any given time)

I already own a large Generac generator for my home. Also have a Generac pump that I bought for use at my property and its been flawless. I have a buddy that is a Generac dealer and he'll get me a Generac at his cost so I'm looking at this one but am wondering if anyone has experience with any other brand of the inverter type "Quiet" generators that I should consider as these little inverter "Quiet" generator tend to be priced at DOUBLE the price of a regular generator (but typically run about 20db quieter than other generators) and I'm willing to pay the premium for the "Quite" types.

Thoughts on this one? Or others that might be at least 2200 Watts running power.

Donít know about the quiet model but the two conventional Generacs I have are great!
