Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
IS IT POSSIBLE TO CONNECT TWO OF THESE GENERATORS THRU THE 110 PLUGINS AND HAVE 2000 WATTS ? DO THEY HAVE TO BE RATED WITH THE SAME WATTAGE?
This cannot be done successfully with a standard generator.
Inverter based generators may have the ability to be paralleled with another of same exact type (like some Hondas and Yamaha), but these are the exception.
Unless your generator specifically offers the option, attempts to connect them will result in both electrical damage to the alternator, and likely mechanical damage to the engine.
I suspect that you are trying to get additional power to start a heavy load that a single generator isn't able to accommodate. You are able to use a storage battery in conjunction with a Trace Inverter to accomplish a similar goal. Once the battery is charged (by the inverter), the inverter will add generator power to inverter power to get the load started. This is a very expensive way to meet the goal. Better solution would be to trade or trade in your smaller generators for a larger generator that is suitable for your loads.

NO! DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS. The problem is that you cannot maintain the phase relationship between them. Both of the generators must turn at precisely the same speed and precisely together - which is virtually impossible without connecting the two generators together on a common shaft, which would be impractical to the point of ridiculous.
