Generator started with just two pulls, right out of the box. It is just 59 lbs. but I added a a couple of small wheels, makes it very easy to move anywhere. Generator works as advertised.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gordo Good product, but..........
This generator is very easy to use, however, be warned... IT IS WAY LOUDER THAN ADVERTISED!!
My application is unusual, so I've had to design & build my own muffler to get the noise down to an acceptable level; the stock muffler has no sound packing in it whatsoever, so the thing resonates like a 1960's briggs & stratton lawnmower with the 1//2-pint sized muffler. As for power output, exactly as advertised. I run a 5K BTU air conditioner & several power tools at the same time and it hardly has to make any effort at running them all. The noise from the stock muffler is the reason it only gets two and not four stars in this review.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jay You do not get what you pay for.
Generator is compact and looks promising.
Unfortunately It cannot operate a 10 amp tool.
The company who sells it is really great but their product is not.
If you need a compact generator to do real work, not just turn on light bulbs this is not it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ellen it is not generating power like it should
This generator already does not work propertly. It is not generating the power the way it did when i first got it and i have only had it for a month or less. I am going to take it in for service to see if it is even going to be useable.

I purchased this generator for my mothers oxygen machine in case of power failure. Had it less than a week and it was needed we had storms power went out and kept her going for the 1.5 hours it was needed. Thanks for the great price and great unit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Engine Problems
Probably wouldn't be a bad little generator, if it had a better engine. The clips that hold the valves in place keep coming off, which kills the engine instantly. First time the valve slid down into the cylinder, but fortunately didn't bend it. This is a very bad design & very difficult to find parts. I'd take it back if I could, but to late for that. They just want to send it in for repair, like that is going to do me any good, I bought it to use this summer, not next winter, when it would probably be returned to me.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Coach good generator for the price
This generator arrived undamaged unlike other horror stories I have heard. Once oil was put in, the proper amount, gas was added as well.
It started on the first try and ran reasonably quiet. I have yet to put a load on it to see how it handles it. It should be fine. With the weight at approx. 58 lbs, I thought it would be a cinch to move around, but it still has some bulk to it.
If you need to move a distance ask for a helping hand instead of moving it yourself.
Overall I think I made a good investment.
(hint) Small engines tend to run better on premium gas due to higher octane/ heat. This tends to keep any fouling and varnish from occuring.

This is a desent little generator for the money. Starts usually with one pull and good on gas. I see so many down rate these generators and typically they understood nothing about generators to start with. This is a 2000 watt generator with a continous of 1400 watt. Now depending on where you live will decide what you get. For every 1000 feet above 500 feet that you live you can subtract 3.5% from that continuios and above 85 deg subtract another 2%. You need to consider these things when buying this or any generator. The generator is very quiet and light easy to carry. I live at 2580 feet and on a 95 deg day mine will pull about 1200 watts no problem.
