6,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 41.

At first, there was still enough material to turn the the valve with a pair of pliers. Then, the rest of the handle/knob broke off. The generator still works fine, but it's frustrating that a generator in this price range has such a cheap valve. The bottle of oil that came with my generator was broken during shipping. I also had the privilege of scrubbing oil off the entire generator. The oil was shipped in a ziplock bag, but it still leaked everywhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Briggs and Stratton customer service is HORRID. 2 weeks... Briggs and Stratton customer service is HORRID. 2 weeks ago, this generator was delivered and was determined to have old gas gummed up in the carburetor. Home Depot was great in letting me return it and order a new one. On July 26, and new one was delivered to my home. I unpacked it and the 2 rubber engine mounts were totally broken. I contacted Briggs and Stratton customer service and they could not even find the part number to send me new parts. Then they told me this generator was manufactured in 2013! When they tried to send me to a local repair facility to get the parts, I told them I did not want this piece of junk. Again, I took it back to Home Depot, and they processed my refund promptly. Bottom line: Briggs and Stratton products made in Green Bay, WI are LOUSY, along with their customer service. Home Depot customer service is OUTSTANDING.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you want power during an outage, get this generator!! Works perfect! lossed power, started it up on one pull and ran it for almost 23 hours straight. Why sit at home with flashlights and candles when you can watch tv, have lights, hairdryers and all the other conveniences of home? For the price, unbeatable. Ran it for 13+ hours without having to add gas. Best in class for run time. This is my first generator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product!! Right out of the box, added oil and gas. Started with 1 pull and ran perfect for hours on end. Not junk, quality workmanship!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I was looking for but great deal. During "Sandy" we lost power and the basement flooded along with no heat, lights, refrigerator... I had looked at generators the week before and did not pull the trigger. During the days of the power outage, Home Depot got an emergency truck load in one night and I was there to pick up this generator. Took it home, put it together and started right up. After reading all about it, it is perfect for what I need. I must say that Home Depot also charged LESS than the internet price by $80 so I was completely satisfied. They even let me open a charge card that saved me another $70!! No more flooded basement, cold family and spoiled food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buy We bought this generator online Oct 9th, was shipped out Oct 11th and arrived on Oct 17th.It arrived on a 53' tractor trailer and their shipping company was very helpful in calling to let me know it was on its way the day of delivery. We couldn't have made a better purchase at the time -almost 2 wks before knowing hurricane Sandy would hit us in North New Jersey. We ran the genny the longest time 12.5 hrs and had about a little less than 1/4 tank next am. We were out of power for 12 days, the genny ran 8 hrs everyday for those 12 days and it was a lifesaver for us. Just tonight, we shut it down and patted it on the back...power back on! It served its purpose, ran great, wasn't excessively loud, easy to start and operate (girls, with hubby at work, I was yanking genny awake in the am!) and set up. It has a fold down handle to move it - great since this is hefty. It is one of THE best home investments we have made!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great generator Put wheels on and put in oil (included) and gas. Started with one pull. Instructions are complete. Good drawings. 7 gallon fuel tank is nice. Not as noisy as I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well whenever needed Have owned this unit for 2+ years and have only occasional need for use during extended power outages. It has always started and run well whenever needed, especially during Superstom Sandy in October 2012 where it ran for 4 days nonstop. I carefully maintain the unit, always store with either no fuel or with stabilized fuel. Excellent performance so far!
