Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 82 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use Bought the Briggs and Stratton Elite 7000 Watt a few months ago. Only took about 45 minutes from box to start. Very easy to understand assembly instructions and operation of unit. Tested the unit hooking up to refrig, two portable heaters, three lamps, 32 inch tv and electric chain saw. Handled everything without a glitch, even when the refrig cycled. I am sure that it could handle more devices. The only con to this generator (maybe all B&S) is the noisey muffler. As recommended by Consumer Reports, wear ear protection while working in the vicinity of operation. November 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 easy start Easy to start, runs my entire home during power outage (with connection to breaker panel) November 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good I have had this generator a couple weeks, and I have only run this generator long enough to check it out and to check out my installation. I have it installed through an outside plug and a six-circuit transfer switch into my house power panel. It has started right up the three times I ran it, and it powered up the lights and small appliances just fine. October 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by everything I expected from b&s I just received my new gen and am totally happy with it. This gen is the real deal with all its features.what really sold me was the fact that this gens engine is made right here in the good ole U.S.A.thanks B&S! October 3, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great generator with a FATAL FLAW Seemingly a great generator, especially for the price BUT- After running only six hours all of the fins sheared off the plastic flywheel fan and were found lying in the bottom of the shroud. Nothing was able to get inside to cause this and nothing projected into them...they just came off for some reason. Can't use the machine without a cooling fan. I suspect every engine of this model has a defective fan since my shiny new generator has been in the shop for a month and a half with the blower fan on back order and no estimate from Briggs and Stratton as to when it will be available. I hope the replacement fan holds up better. I'll probably shy away from Briggs and Stratton products in the future. December 21, 2011
