Customer Reviews

Elite Series 7,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, once I got it started! The generator now works great and it has been put to use during at least one lengthy power outage. The only problem encountered happened when I first tried to start the generator. I got the engine running for 10 seconds and then it quit. I was unable to restart either by electric start or by the recoil start. After hours of checking the spark plug and other engine components, I was able to determine a vapor lock had occurred. Loosening the gas tank cap helped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gassed it, choked it, and it started right up... It provided quiet, smooth, even power all week out of the box for my travel trailer including line charging, coach battery charging, air conditioner, and microwave (not at the same time for now).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable Power I have owned this generator for a year now and it starts easily and provides stable voltage at the 60 Hertz needed. The unit is not to loud either, much quieter than my old Generac.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ( PUERTO RICO ) Great Generator!!! Great
Date published: 2017-09-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Great Unit! I have had this unit for almost 3 years. Was bought for my new smaller down sized home I had to build after hurricane Rita. This unit runs my 2 ton central air, my whole house lights, tv, computer, freeezer and so on with out strain, can also use large microwave and a burner on my electric stove, will not run central heat. Easy to start with key, not bad at all on fuel, needs a quieter muffler. Hour meter and fuel gauge a great plus also enclosed battery float charger a great option. From a retired electrician this is a greeat unit for the money. Hve this unit on a transfer switch for my home, draw back is I have to go outside and start and stop unit, no remote start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good reliable machine Picked up this machine last year after the extended outages lasting 15 days on two occasions in 2011. Generator now has 57 hrs. of run time with 51 of those from storm Sandy outage lasting 3 days here in CT. I have a transfer switch in the house to power my main panel and manage loads manually by using just the essentials. This would be the fridge, oil fired boiler for heat and HW, microwave, lights, TV, computer and the occasional 240V cooktop burner. About 5kw +/- at most. Voltage remains steady in the 119-120V range thanks to the automatic voltage regulator with frequency at 61.75Hz. Engine always starts easily and fuel usage is as expected. When a load kicks in engine easily handles it, not so much when load releases as the engine revs up a bit although OK. Very happy with the purchase so far which includes one of the best 3yr. warranty periods available and change the 5W-30 oil at 40hr. intervals or yearly with no oil usage between changes thus far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 7000 Watt Elite generator is a great machine for emergency power. I purchased it during hurricane Sandy and it ran flawlessly for 7 days. It provided power to 2 refrigerators, gas furnace blower motor, sump pump, a few lights, and television with cable box. My wife was even able to do a load of wash and dry it in the gas dryer. The controls are simple and I like the fuel guage and hour meter. The unit ran on a tank of gas for 12 hours. Several of the neighbors on my street were using Briggs and Stratton generators during Sandy too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.
