Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MiketheChiefsman This generator is legit.
This is powerful, large, and heavy. I'm happy it's on wheels. I store it in my basement (when not using it - It's GAS, use it outside!) It was a family effort to get it down there. The handles and wheels helped quite a bit on that journey.
Pros -- It has enough power to run most of your home and especially key items like furnace, sump pump, appliances, lights, etc. You will likely need an electrician to assist if you plan on using it at your electrical/breaker box. Otherwise you are running some cords, lots of cords. It has solid rubber tires so nothing to air up or maintain on that. It started up quick and the electric start is a plus and worked perfectly. The power was good. I tested all outlet and no issues. All tested devices reacted well to the generator.
Cons – It’s loud, but that should not be a surprise with a 10,000 watt generator. No fuel gauge. That would be so nice and something I appreciate immensely on generators. With no fuel gauge, you are eye balling it. The instructions!! This really must be fixed. This surely is the worst set of instructions and assembly notes I have ever seen. They owe it to their customers to resolve this. Not everyone is an expert on these types of units. Some people may have issues understanding how to operate and leverage the benefits since the instructions are severely lacking. This is not a big deal, but have some oil on hand. It’s not included in the box.
I added a few photos of the box and generator right after I removed it from the box and assembled it. Overall, it's a nice generator and it's priced right. I had no issues with mine and now I have some additional peace of mind when I need it. I recommend this unit.

This may very well deserve a good rating. It arrived 10/10/16. I put it together on 10/11/16. I added a small amount of 100% gas
and it started immediately. The next day I added more gas and was going to test electrical output but it began vibrating and plastic
pieces and screws began falling out of the generator. It appears that the screws that holds control panel case was tightened at the factory to the point that plastic case (that contains the control panel) fell apart or the plastic was faulty. It took two days and several phone calls before I could talk to JDNA (it appears that All-Power is a part of JDNA) and they instructed me that I would need to take the 250 pound
generator to an authorized agent at my expense. In the mean time I filed complaint with Home Depot. A HD customer service person called me the next day and was very nice and understanding and said she would see if manufacturer would send me a new generator. I have not heard further from Home Depot. On about 15 Oct JDNA authorized me to take the generator to a local small motor repair place. I have not taken it yet ( don't have a trailer), still waiting to hear from Home Depot. I suspect that the generator is a good product for the price and that the plastic housing happen to be faulty or screws overly tightened at factory.
But how can I rate this highly ??? (I also bought the extended warranty from Home Depot) How can I rate Home Depot (which has always
been dependable to care of problems) highly? My expectations have not been met as of 10/25/2016

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nette I have not been able to use generator because the wheels and handles are not on. Also, there is no power cord. However, I hope to find someone who will help me get it setup before another hurricane hits. The picture made me think it was already assembled.

It was delivered quickly and easy to assemble. I did have a problem with the fuel stop cock leaking from a bad seal. Called customer support and had a replacement 2 days later. Works perfectly now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Landshark HEAVY DUTY POWER
This generator is not a lightweight. It seems to produce a great deal of energy. I have not had to use it for power outages yet (there are storms brewing as I write this), but I think it will produce the power I need to keep the necessary appliances powered up in a storm. It is a heavy unit. While it is called a "portable" generator and has wheels, I wouldn't want to have to use it anywhere but on ground level. I believe it weighs nearly 200 pounds so lifting it to go anywhere won't happen for me. It is a bit loud, but what do you expect from this sized generator.

In Florida, it is essential to have a reliable generator in the event of a prolonged power outage as a result of a storm. This 10,000 Watt generator is powerful enough to keep your essential appliances running. Our house is equipped with a separate electrical panel that we can tie the generator in so that only the essentials are powered thus making efficient use of the generator's power. This a gasoline powered generator, so there is no special hookup needed for a propane tank. This is hard to maneuver and position simply because the weight of the unit; this thing is heavy! It comes with a users manual which you will want come the time you have fire it up in an emergency. So far it is working well, but I cannot attest to the longevity of the life of the unit as we only recently received it.

Talk about power to spare, This generator will run everything in my house in the event of a power outage. Like last night, but the power didn't stay off long enough for me to get the generator going. It is extremely mobile due too the hard tires on the chassis. It is easy to start with the auto start process, no more pulling your guts out trying to start a generator. Just a flip of the switch and the generator roared to life and within a few minutes it was ready to take the load. It is my hope to get a cutoff on my house so I can just plug it in and it would be ready for the power outage. Gasoline engine is not to bad as far as noise goes and as with any gas engine venting the engine to the atmosphere is a must. this is a great generator for my use and home.

A bit more noisy than advertised, but it starts easily, runs well and produces power. So it does all that I need it to do. Less money than the competition, but appears to be the same generator that's sold under various other names.
