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.

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.

I bought this product a couple years ago. I have tested it, but never used it. I decided to test it again after it had been sitting for about 18 months. It started on the first pull. (Battery had no charge, but I expected that). I use Sea Foam for storage, but keep it outside in a protected mini shed. When I tested it 18 months ago, I hooked it up to my load center and was able to run everything in the house including central air. Most of my appliances are gas, so 10,000 is ample for everything. I didn't have to decide what circuits I wanted to use....just used them all. I will say, however, that CFL light bulbs cannot handle the dirty power and they will blow. I didn't try my computer, but I did try televisions and they worked fine.

I have this generator that I got from Home Depot November 2014. It has been stored in my garage and only used during power outages. It has 35 hours total run time. It stopped running abruptly this weekend. Now it seems that the motor is locked up, will not turn over with starter or pull rope. I have been listing to music all morning waiting for someone to answer any of phone number listed. Paper work confirms the motor was made in China. CUSTOMER SERVICE IS NON EXISTENT. PAID $1000 and only 35 hours is $27 an hour to run it plus gas. I will NEVER buy anything with allpower America on it. I would advise everyone to think long and hard before buying

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shopper1 10,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator
Generator received as advertised, except for the fuel level indicator - It has a bypass valve setup instead.
I do like the hard rubber tires (no more flats), but the unit is quite heavy (approx. 250 Lbs.) and may be difficult for some to muscle around. It is a bit noisier than expected, but puts out enough power to supply my needs as an on-site power source ... I buy ''throw-away' homes and remodel them for re-sale in my retirement. For the sale price of $699.00, I feel it was a good investment. Should also be adequate as back-up in the event of a power grid failure.
I would recommend this item.

As you can see in the photo I put my genraor on my concession stand KanEric's Place Machias Me.. Hooked into 110 at frist with outstanding performance and then into 220 which even incresed more so. I can run every bit of my machines,Fridge ,Freezer,Fryolator steamer, Slow Cooker, Microwave,coffeepot and every electrical outlet without one problem.The only thing I'd say that could be changed is it has no fuel Gauge which would have been a big help.
