Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 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 5 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 out of 5 by 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. December 6, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great generator This is a great generator that starts on the first pull and supplies all the power i need to power my enclosed trailer and tools. Have not had any problems yet in my first month of use. April 28, 2014
