Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lars After 7 hours operation, squirted fuel out of the injector
Price was right, Home Depot's 30 day return policy was great. I was doing some test runs behind my garage and it worked ok for 7 hours. Then, I heard it lugging down, so I went into my garage, opened the garage door, which was dripping with diesel fuel and fuel was now squirting into my garage from somewhere around the engine's fuel injector. We tried to tighten the injector and the injector line but it did not help. We started it up again and it began shooting fuel out of the injector again. We had it for 7 days, took it back to Home Depot and got a full refund. I think you get what you pay for! I'm glad we didn't have to depend on the manufacturers warranty.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carlos Good features easy starting
I bought two they both came in a very protected pallet. Not hard to install the wheels. Went over all the instructions and they both started right up. They are in the breaking in stage right now. The only fault so far is that the battery must be wired to charge as it is not prewired from the factory. For a few more bucks, they should have attended to this... Impresssed so far. Will probably buy a couple more. They are rather noisy though.... Will have to build a cover to try to reduce the noise issue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bob1 Good price for what you get, reliable
Only thing I would add is larger tires....tough to move around with the little tires provided.
Quick assembly, heavy gauge steel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYPJC Poor quality and even worse support from Allpower
I purchased this and wrote an earlier review saying it looked sturdy and well built, and it does. But it isn't. It would not run right out of the box and Allpower had little interest in helping. It took almost 30 days from my first call until they finally said they would take it back. They would not authorize local service. Also the manual shipped with the unit was not specifically for this model. Fortunately HomeDepot stood behind the product and helped me when Allpower would not.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PJYouself Very sturdy and well built
So far so good. Seems very sturdy and heavy duty wheels and axle. The folding handles to roll it around are an excellent idea.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Momo Failed after 3 hours.
I purchased this, recieved from Home Depot. It was packaged fine. Unpacked the unit, put the wheels on. Filled with premium quality diesel oil 15w40 as manual instructs. Hooked up the battery. Added fuel stabilizer (Stabil for Diesel fuel) to the brand new diesel fuel I just purchased. Filled the tank with fuel. Started unit with electric start - started up and ran for almost 3 hours with no load. Around hour 3, began to run REALLY rough. Engine cycling up and down. On the down cycle, everything would go off on the engine - almost as if the unit was completely turned off. then it would cycle back up. The volt meter read the correct voltage at the up swing, but would go down to 0 on the downswing. Waited for it to cool down, started it again. Same issue.
Support from All Power has been OK - they had me take it to a local diesel mechanic. Supposedly, the fuel filter was clogged, even though it was a brand new fuel filter. No idea what that is about. Still waiting for all power to send the parts to the dealership.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by captmark runs good
Wheel assembly was very easy and engine started on first crank, nice having electric starter. Has run very good ( 10 hrs. ) great buy so far well satisfied. only downfall is this generator is very loud, around 96 - 100 decibles and very heavy compared to gasoline generator of same watts.
