3,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This generator has got some serious guts To any one planning to buy a generator this is perfect,I ran my dbl door refrigerator, tv,dvd player charged 2 iphones ipad and ran a lamp and it ran perfect ,whenI wanted to cook I just unplugged everything and plugged in the microwave. Very important when you get your generator home test it out plug somethings into it run it for 8-10 hours and change the oil. Most people do not know this but you must run it and change oil especially after the first time you use it. Its just enough power to get comfortably by power outages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features,nicely laid out,fuel gauge and on /off switches visible.Gas shutoff and circuit breaker readily accessed. Arrived via truck in excellent shape as promised.Delivery flawless.All paper work in order.Easy instructional format,started on first pull.All pieces and parts exactly where they were supposed to be.I made a pigtail for the 240 side to split off 120/120 since I do not need a 240 volt tap for my needs.Steady state 120 throughout 60 hertz solid no wavering.Can't wait for the next utility meltdown in my area.Three emergencies since 2008 around here,I can no longer depend on the utility companies let alone the government.The wood stove will provide heat,my generator food,light and entertainment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great buy! It took about 6 minutes to assemble this generator right out of the box. After adding the supplied oil, a couple of pints of gasoline, this unit fired up with the first pull. I let it run for a few minutes, plugged in a radio to give it a quick test, then shut off the gasoline to the carburetor and let it run out. I will winterize this unit and hope I never use it again, realizing this will be a cheap insurance policy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer beware.. I bought one of these to provide power to my RV trailer. I used it for 2 months and the motor seized up. I never overloaded it; it provides 3000 Watts, and the most I ever put on was about 2600 for a short period of time. I checked the oil level on Tuesday evening, it was fine. I used it for about 6 hours between Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Started it on Thursday morning, one pull like usual, and 3 minutes later I'm out $500. Briggs and Stratton won't warranty it because I live in my trailer and this generator is my source of power.. I will NEVER buy anything with the B&S badge again. Ever. And you shouldn't either..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Briggs and Stratton 3500 Watt Portable Generator is reliable. I purchased the Briggs and Stratton 3500 watt Portable Generator three days before a major ice storm was supposed to hit in Jan 2011. We did lose power and this generator had no problem powering my whole house furnace, a fridge, some lights and the TV, so we could stay at home. It fired up on the first pull and ran outside in below freezing temps without any issues and I was amazed at how long it could run between refueling. Would fill at night about 11 pm and at 8 am still had a gallon of gas left out of the 4 gallon tank. It ran for two days straight and never missed a beat. Thanks Briggs and Stratton for this great generator. My family has been nice and warm and has no fears of losing power in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Low Oil shut of. These little engines don't work like a car engine. They consume a lot of oil. Without any oil indicator or a low oil shut of its a matter of time when you will end up running the generator with low oil level and then the engine goes. The repair on the engine is very expensive and is not covered under warranty. That happened to me with this generator. I used it 3 times 4-5 hours each time and didn't even think to check the oil so soon until the engine blew. Live and learn.
