3,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good work generator good generator for the jobsite but do not try and tailgate with this generator as they are loud. Used mine on the jobsite and to power my travel trailer and never had any issues with it. If I buy another one I will definitely make sure that the DB level is printed on the packaging

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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Big enough I purchased a B&S generator on the recomendation of the local small engine shop. The guy said the parts are easy to get if there is a problem and they make a good generator. I only needed a 240 volt to power my well jet pump and at 3500 running watts this unit was one of the smallest for 240. I paired it with a 8 circuit transfer panel and it did the job! It ran my well pump; furnace (oil base board) a bath exhaust fan and 400 watts worth of lighting at the same time easily. I'll be sure not to run the well pump and say a toaster oven or microwave at the same time but worth it not to have a giant 7-10,000 watt unit.
