Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Starts easily, runs smoothly and quietly, is dependable. I have owned several generators over the years for home and work. This is by far the best one. Several great features are fuel shut off, circuit shut off, wheels on one end and handle on other, and fuel gauge. As far as I am concerned you can't beat the dependability of a Briggs and Stratton engine, its the first thing I look for. I leave this generator at hunting camp and it started the other morning with one pull and it was 20 deg F out side. Love it. November 24, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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.. October 23, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by $ 399.00 at home depot sequim, wa Picked up generator on second day of power outage. Put wheel kit on and handle kit, pulled it to the garage. Put in 20oz of supplied 10/30 oil, 5 gallons of gas. Allowed it to warm up for a few minutes. Plugged in a large chest freezer, tv, dish reciever, couple of lamps. No problems what so ever. My wife and I are happy campers. Lent out my 1000 watt unit to neighbor so he could have light and tv. The Briggs and Stratton generator is one of our better investments. Kind of wish the power would go out again, it will, it isn't even winter yet. We'll be ready. Thank you Briggs and Stratton, Dave and Brenda, Quilcene, Wa December 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I WAS SHIPPED THE LATEST MODEL REV 03 PICTURED REV 00 WITHOUT CARB COMPLAINT NOT AT ALL NOISY. VERY SURPRISED WEIGHT OF UNIT IS ONLY 110 # NOT AS STATED. VERY EASY TO ASSEMBLE. STARTING WAS ONE VERY SLOW PULL. T HANDLE MAKES FOR EASY MOVING AROUND. April 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 14, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 14, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reliability! I bought the Briggs and Stratton 3500 watt generator because I wanted a good, reliable machine to run my cabin. Being a cautious purchaser, much research turned up B&S as a top choice. For many years my Briggs and Stratton lawnmowers have never let me down, and I hear too many horror stories of cheap, chinese generators working for year 1, but not for year 2. I hope to have this machine for many years! December 15, 2015
