    Portable Generator for emergencies
    I haven't had to use it yet for an emergency but did start it up and connected it to the Transfer panel I had installed in the basement. It worked fine and powered my identified circuits. The only gripe I had was filling the oil pan.The neck is under the engine which is partially covered by a metal shroud and is very difficult to pour oil into. The best way is to purchase a container with a flexible spout so you can bend it under the unit. Otherwise, everything is fairly straightforward. I ... read more haven't bought a battery so didn't use the electric start feature, but it started with 2 pulls using the recoil starter. We'll see how it holds up after a few years.

    Great Back-Up for Two Home Businesses
    My wife and I have two businesses we run from home. One day without power and this generator is more than paid for! Runs all the basics, lights, well pump, refrigeration, office and some shop equipment. Be prepared to cycle some appliances on and off as needed. Runs great on propane, started on the third pull. Delivery driver was very helpful, placing the pallet in my garage. I chose HomeDepot because my local store gave me great service when I built my home addition and I had the option of ... read more returning it to my local store if I didn't like it or something was wrong.... -TriggerDoctor.com- ( Higher rating if it came with a battery and a main power transfer switch. Has cosmetic damage from pallet straps. )

    Tim the tool man needs this generator
    This generator is solid, top to bottom. easy to use. instructions are easy to understand. The only issue I have is changing the oil. the oil access is in an awkward position underneath the motor. It isn't a deal breaker but it is a bit of a challenge. It starts well, is easy to transport and definitely will provide power wherever and when ever you need it. the instructions are terrific and customer support is easily available. I would not only recommend this product but would suggest it to ... read more anyone that is in the market for a big off the grid power source.

    So far so good
    Assembled fine & started easily. Haven't had to use yet, and that's fine by me. Chinese to American directions always leave a little to be desired, but was able to figure out. Seems like a good value for the $$. Home depot did a great job in substituting this for a cheaper one they ran out of. Excellent customer service

    Great lil generator
    Perfect for my Camping needs. I mounted it onto my cargo carrier on the back of my RV. It started on the first pull, and has continued to start on the first pull every time. As generators go it is reasonably quiet to me. Obviously if you are right next to it, it is fairly loud. I walked about 50 yards away and could not hear it at the campground amongst all the other background noise from kids playing etc. If I ever have a power failure at the house I can always fire up the generator and meet my ... read more power needs. I can lift it by myself, but I highly recommend having two people do it. Of course it comes with all the hardware needed to make it portable on wheels as well, but for my application, easier for me to leave the wheels off. I love Home Depots 6 months same as cash deal, especially if you are on a tight budget. This is an excellent little generator and I hope to get many many years of service out of it. Good price for a generator and the shipping was pretty quick.

    The generator was exactly what i expected
    I opened the generator and everything was in excellent condition. It only took me a couple minutes to put on the wheel and handle kit. I added oil and gas and the generator started on the first try. I then used the remote and once again the generator started with no issues. The electric start and remote are very good features that normally come with much more expensive generators. While the generator is louder than other high end machines I am able to stand next to it and have a conversation. I ... read more would recommend this generator to anyone who is looking for an inexpensive and reliable machine.

    Great Generator
    .This is the easiest generator to use and it starts on the first try every time. The construction is excellent and it is built to last. I've owned generators before and I find this one to be the best I've ever owned. The electric start button and the remote both start it up on the first try. Being a senior citizen this is very important to me. I would recommend this generator to anyone looking for one in the 3500 watt size. One note I purchased the correct cover for it (C90011) ay Amazon for ... read more $25. On the Home Depot site it was $62. The cover listed on the page with the generator is the wrong size.

    works just like its supposed to.
    I unpacked this generator after being shipped.everything was there,nothing bent or broke.i had read horror storys on reviews but also more good ones,you tube had good reviews to.we bought a new toyhauler with no onboard generator.i did as instructed,put oil in[my oil, amsoil] put fuel in.stepped back 20ft hit the remote switch once and it started right now.only con so far is the oil dipstick position,to check oil level or add oil is a pain in the butt.other than that very happy.i saved $2500.00 ... read more from the on board gen. mounted up on rack next to batteries so the spot where the onboard would have went is now storage.the gen is also very quiet.

    A good backup for emergencies
    It is a neat,compact and well enginered generator. I did a lot of reading, comparing and researching portable generators over the last couple of years.I did not find any that I was sold on until this came out this year. I wanted a propane generator for the safety of not storing gasoline and propanes stability and shelf life.This unit has the power and economy to keep my essentials on during a power outage.A few things to note if you do purchase one.Do not choke the carb.unless it is cold ... read more temps.Open propane tank valve slowly to charge fuel line.Give the carb.fill button a very quick push to not flood the carb.Pull the crank rope straight up at the 12o'clock position and crank until it fires up usually 3 or 4 cranks.I learned these tricks by talking to the factory rep.and my own trial and error.

    Solid Unit
    This unit has everything you are looking for in portable power at a reasonable price. It is easy to operate and for those who don't want to deal with gasoline, etc. it's a must have. The fact I can easily transport this unit and utilize my existing LP tanks has me thinking how versatile it is (remodeling, camping, tailgating, etc.). It's well built and comes with a two year warranty if there is an issue. Enjoy!

    Great So Far
    Pros: - Price is excellent for a 3250 Watt propane generator. - Started right up and ran 2 x 1650 Watt heaters without a hiccup. - Nice digital multi-meter shows frequency, Voltage, run time. - Relatively light compared to others of this rating. - Compact design compared to others. - High quality powder coat is ding and scratch proof. - Aluminum generator end housing and bearing support (for those of you who remember the bad old days of Powermate with plastic end housing). - Supplied by PRAMAC, ... read more a world-class generator company. Cons: - Kinda funky transport handle arrangement - but they thoughtfully provided a toe step so you can easily tilt up to roll on the big main wheels. - Big main wheels are kinda wobbly and need some additional washer shimming. - One of the aluminum castings looks a little iffy, showing 1/16" voids where it was machined off. - Instruction manual parts list reference numbers do not match reference numbers on the exploded diagram. - (Not the fault of the generator!) HD's shipper in the southeast is dazed and confused. Every time I called them they said it was on the truck, but it wasn't. I needlessly took a day off from work (lost $$) for them to deliver, but they didn't. After I raised a stink a gentleman brought it out to my house in the trunk of his large car. I am less than 15 miles from the PRAMAC America warehouse.

    Great for the Price..
    I just purchased a Toy Hauler, and wanted something big enough to run 2 full size Trailers back to back running everything including the air on both trailers when you need it! Does the job big time, a little noisy, but if you get out 2-40ft extension cords or 80 ft total to fit the 240/30amp outlet, you wont even notice it running..Just chain down to a tree and leave it.lol

    I use this for emergency power in my residence. I make sure to start is twice a year and put a load on the output. It starts with a touch of the key and is much quieter than friend's emergency generators. I am very happy with this unit.

    Excellent portable generator
    I purchased this generator November 2011. This unit is well built and nicely designed. Assembly took one person (me) about 20 minutes. I have been running this generator once per week for testing. Electric starts are almost instant. A key item for me was compatibilily with my APC Smart UPS 1500 backup systems that I use for my computers and aquariums (fish die with no power for heat and filtration). No problems running the three UPS units from the generator. The generator came with everything ... read more needed to setup the generator (battery, oil, etc.). I purchased a plastic cover to keep the generator clean (Classic Accessories Generator Cover size Large) and a 300 Lumen Forehead Bonfire head strapped light to work on the generator in the dark. I have not yet wired this generator into my house and this is the next step. For now I have run four 120v 12g extension cords thru a taped window as I don't want to try to figure this out in the dark in a snow storm. I have purchased a Reliance Controls Q410C to use as the transfer switch. Now to find a reasonbly priced electrician and this has been the biggest challenge. Overall I really like this generator and I recommend it to anyone who needs a solid 7500 watt generator under $1000.00.

    First Generator
    Received my generator in a timely manner with no damage at all. After reading the operating instructions it was very easy to assemble. Added the oil that came with it, put 87 octane gas in, pushed the button and it started instantly. Ran it for about an hour and shut it down for about six hours. Started it again with no problem After starting it the second time I plugged in a refrigerator, deep freezer and two flat screens with all the assesories and it ran like there was no load at all. I'm ... read more very pleased with my genorator. The only regret I have is, for the price the wheels should have been pnuematic vise hard rubber. I'll go to Harbor Freight and replace them.

    This product is user friendly.
    Straight out of the box it was easy to set up. I had it delivered and it arrived within 2 days of ordering and was supplying power within 25 min. Seems quieter than most portable generators I have encountered. Went with the electric starting for my wife which was a plus. She had no problems starting the generator. Large transport wheels makes it much easier to manuever. Only wish it had an hour meter for maintanence purposes. And feel for the price it should have included a cover.

    Not bad at all
    - Excellent price for a solid minigen, and CARB - Not sold for its muffling, ,but pretty quiet nonetheless - Missing diagram, no oil, no funnel; mine has an odd high pitch vibration I wasn't expecting much for the price and for an open generator, but I'm pretty impressed with this. It arrived well packed and protected, with detailed instructions not necessarily listed in order of use; all parts are numerically listed on a legend, but my manual does not have a diagram -- the only important ... read more things to know: the oil drain plug is in the back, the oil fill plug and dipstick is in the front, and the fuel cock is on the left side, upper left corner above the starter handle, and the choke is immediately above the air filter. Oil the filter, add oil (it is shipped empty and without a bottle nor funnel,) gas, close the air, flip the fuel cock, flip the "on" switch on the front panel, pull the cord once -- then open the air. It seems to provide fairly steady power for a non-computer-controlled unit but I'd be hesitant to hook up sensitive electronics to this. I'm getting a true 16 running amps from this, and it's got a pretty decent muffler on it. Mine has a high frequency, high pitched vibration I can't isolate, but I don't think it's from the engine itself. Otherwise the shock system is pretty responsive and effective. Someone makes tents for at least 3k open generators which are well worth his price, canvas with fitted openings for included pvc framing; the large one I bought years ago dwarfs this generator but it does the trick. I'd done a lot of paint stripping with an orbital sander using another rural box store's 3k without the tent; I'm still trying to get all the dust out of it so it might start again. If you love this thing, use dino oil first, then change it out with synthetic -- theoretically the dino oil will plug any seepage points the thinner synthetic might find. Very pleasantly pleased with this.

    quiet generator
    Out of the box, after adding oil, it started on the second pull and was ready to work. It does not run anywhere near as high of RPMs as ones I have had in the past. It is also much quieter than my other 1500 watt generator Plugged a drill and a table saw in to it and pulled around 11 amps and it worked perfectly. It has four 120-Volt receptacles, but does not include a 12v charging output. The fuel tank is a gallon, which lasts about 8 hours during normal use. It does come supplied ... read more with a jug of engine oil, so make sure you pick one up when you pick up the generator.

    Compact, quiet, economical mobile power ideal for lighter electric loads
    The compact LIFAN brand generator provides 2000 peak watts and 1600 continuous watts of power. The one gallon gas tank provides about eight hours of use at 50 percent load. Unit is equipped with a fuel shut off valve, manual choke, and an on/off switch. The generator has a 3 horsepower four cycle engine and doesn’t require an oil/gas mix. Unit does need small engine oil, about 20 ounces, and is equipped with an auto shut off if the oil level is low. The motor started with a few pulls and ran ... read more quietly. The unit is rated at 62 dBs, quiet enough to use as a tailgate generator. Outlets provided are two 110 V outlets, with a circuit breaker reset if needed. This unit handles with ease small electric needs, from tailgating to provide power for a radio and TV, to providing light or the ability to run most refrigerators. It good for camping or for providing limited emergency power. Its light enough to carry at fifty pounds using the side handles, this unit does not come with wheels. My only complaint is the gas cap is hard to reinstall. Dimensions are 19 inches long, 15 inches wide, and 18 inches high, providing for easy storage and mobility. 3 Year Warranty.

    Monster machine with small price tag
    Brought the ECO7000 it is a monster of a generator for the price. Didn't know Firman Generators and was hesitant to purchase, after doing the research the value for the dollar and the international reputation of this company I took a shot and hit a home run. No question as Firman grows they will be at the front of the generator market in the US, like they are in other parts of the world.

    7000 Watt Generator Review
    The generator couldn't have been any easier to put together. Took all of 10 minutes, if that. I only gave half a pull on the starter rope and it started right up, no problem. I was surprised the generator was a little louder than I thought it would be, but it is not bad. While I just got the unit, I am extremely happy with the quality for the price. We shall see how it does in 3-4 years, but right now, I couldn't be happier!
