Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It looks great. Waiting for the next power outage. This is exactly what I was looking for. I wish it came with amp gauges on the outputs. February 15, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No Low Oil Shut Off Must buy generator with low oil shut off to protect the motor. These little engines consume the oil in no time and before you now it you will blow the piston becouse its out of oil. Its an expensive service to tepair the motor not covered by warranty. November 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Indispensable during this years winter power outag I bought this during the ice & snow storm power outage that hit the northeast in February. I had checked 3 of the major home improvement stores in the area, and was heading toward another when I passed by a local power equipment shop. On a whim I stopped in and they were just unloading a truck with these generator sets. Felt very lucky to be able to get one. It was easy to get operating at home, supplied us with power to run our heater, refrigerator, some lights and a couple of televisions. We obviously had to limit what electrical appliances we used. Now I just have to get an appropriate transfer switch installed and we will be ready for the next outage. March 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 2, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Work Horse Very easy to setup right out of the box (which will take 2 people to unload). You can't kill this generator! It takes whatever you throw at it and runs like a top. With a 16.5HP B&S Engine this generator was made to work and work for hours on end. 6000 Watts will power what you need,lights,fridge,freezer, TV's, microwave with out hesitation. This even powers my 4500 watt hot water heater so no cold showers!! Just remember to back down some of your other powered items before you kick on the hot water heater breaker to give it the watts it needs, let it heat up for about an hour, then kick the breaker off. Also get an electrician to properly back feed it into your electric service panel, don't do it your self! August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 6000 Watt Portable Generator review I bought this generator after suffering an extended power outage during hurricane Irene. I installed a generator connector box and wired it to a 30amp two pole breaker in my panel and I purchased a generator power cord for use when needed. So I was lucky that I had it when hurricane Sandy hit our area. I was the only homeowner in my area that had a generator for the first several days. This generator ran all of my essential home needs plus flat screen TV and computers. However I have not tried to use it to run the a/c yet. Purchased it because of the low THD and the Briggs brand motor. March 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent for those hurricanes Bought over 5 years ago and is still chugging along February 4, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by First impressions I'm always hesitant to review products that haven't been used much. I haven't had a power failure since I purchased this generator, so this review is based solely on first impressions. The assembly and setup is very straight forward. If you have a basic set of tools you should be good to go. After assembly I put gasoline and filled the oil as recommended. The generator started on the first pull, ran smoothly about 20 seconds and then the idle became rough. It started to smoke and I noticed gas was dripping out of the carb. I had previously read that some Briggs and Stratton's were having problems with stuck floats on initial start up. Some people think they are using some kind of anti corrosive in there that gums up when the units sit in storage. Anyways...I took a screwdriver handle and gave the carb several taps on the fuel bowl which evidently freed up the float and the engine cleared itself up and ran fine after that. Subsequent starts have been fine with no more flooding. When I powered up the house with the generator there were no issues. I ran lights, fridge, a gas furnace, my 1100 watt microwave and television with no problems. The real test will be a lengthy power failure if it ever occurs but my initial impressions (aside from the stuck float) of this generator are good. December 23, 2014
