Are there any commercially for-sale wood gasifier generators?

    Just wondering, would be fun to play with as well as be a nice little prepping item for TEOTWAWKI or just local power outages. I've seen some DIY ones on YouTube and such.

    I'm not necessary expecting it to power the whole house but at least have enough juice to power battery rechargers at a minimum, ideally power at least a fridge.

    I've never seen a commercial one, at a prepping convention met a guy who powered his truck with one and he showed pictures of his generator that he also powered with a gasifier. It was interesting, but a very dirty energy source.
