Customer Questions & Answers

How often should i run the generator per year and with or W/O a load?

Asked by: Anonymous
I've read you should run a generator once per month under load. Personally I run it once every two months or so and seldom under load. I do this more to get the bad gas out of the carb.

Fuel consumption

Specification sheet says tank capacity 5 gallons, then says full load consumption is 5 gallons per hour. Is this correct?
Asked by: Anonymous
Can't be - 5 gallons per hour is piggish. It would never be that high.

Customer Reviews

5,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator with Hour Meter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, reliable generator We ordered this generator a month before Hurricane Sandy and it turned a potentially bad situation into a simple inconvenience. We were one of the lucky families with no significant damage to our home, but we lost power for two and a half days (again, very lucky compared to many). The generator started on the first pull and ran almost continuously with no issues. We powered our refrigerator, television, X-Box,computers, lights, oil burner, water heater, microwave and a neighbors refrigerator with power to spare. We had enough power left to power both of our basement sump pumps if needed. Maintenance is also very easy, with the oil change plug conveniently located and all maintenance needs clearly explained in the owner's manual. I would strongly recommend Briggs and Stratton to anyone looking to buy a generator for their home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Starts Everytime I have owned the generator nine months. It handles my air compressor, portable heater, and lights without issues. It started after sitting for 3 months, the temperature was 8 below zero and the previous two weeks the recorded low temperatures were 30 below. My 2000 watt Honda generator is great, economical, but it won't run my air compressor and it did not start that day until after it was warmed up inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RELIABLE GENERATOR I purchased this generator on June 27, 2013 online from Home Depot, and after 2 week shipment snafu I got it on July 12, 2013. I am mechanically qualified to assemble, troubleshoot and repair equipment but this generator looks simple enough that can be handled by any handy person. It assembled quickly and started quickly, so far so good. I am using Mobil 1 5W-30 Synthetic oil because effects of the harsh climate on engines mostly operates at outdoors. The synthetic oils are good in any extreme temperatures, I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great generator Got our generator 2 days before a power outage, took care of all of our needs, money well spent, recommend this unit highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Money I've Spent This Winter This thing was a monster to get out the box, only because I opened it and attached the wheels by myself. Had I had help, it would have been much easier. However, after it was taken out of the box it was then left out and covered in icy rain for a couple of nights, and then snowed on. It still started with one pull, basically out of the box. It is no louder than any other generator, and there is less exhaust odor than Hondas and Honeywells used by the Volunteer Fire Department I am a member of. Being used to using generators in emergency situations, I have come to know that Briggs and Stratton make the most reliable engines. Honda uses them. But this Briggs and Straton generator is the only one I was able to find that is almost 100% made in America! Reliable and made in the USA. I am a customer for life after one pull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can't go wrong with Briggs & Stratton Put oil and gas in and the engine started on the first pull. Week later, started on the first pull again. Still breaking it in but it runs great. Power output is very good too. Very satisfied with this purchase. Sure you could buy a cheaper one from the local tool store but if you ever need parts where would you get them?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed It is easy to operate and it starts right up every time.
