Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Generator Ordered this generator and had it shipped to the store. When I picked it up from the store and took it home, it was clear that I'd made the right choice. Sat down and read the instructions from front to back. Then, I added oil and gas, and I think it started on the 3rd or 4th pull. Runs great, doesn't make much noise (it's not an inverter generator, so it's not going to be as quiet as one), and has all the power we might need. It has no problem running my 2-1/2 HP air compressor. We use it while tent camping, as a power backup for the house, and all sorts of weird and random things. I'm sure this unit will bring many years of portable power. November 18, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Champion generator 4000 watt peak 3500 continuous I bought this generator the other day box was undamaged took it home open the box to my surprise the carriage was bent there was no damage to the box gas tank had chips around the gas cap I was a little disappointed at the quality control from the factory there was no damage from shipping I have read in the past other people having damage to their generators Home Depot after I told them it was damaged told me to return it and they would give me 10% discount I have decided to keep this generator it seems to run good but it's unfortunate that the company would send something out damaged July 5, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by get what you pay for get what you pay for it did not have enough out put for my camper October 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Runs great with all the power I need. I followed the quick start guide and the unit started up on the second pull. I purchased this unit to run my RV AC unit and it handles that load without any trouble. A week later our power went out for 20 hours. I was able to use the 30 Amp plug to run the RV while I used the 20 Amp plug to supply power for 2 refrigerators and a freezer. August 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good value, great generator a little too much noise for camping at a campground. Great for back-up power a home. October 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Great value for the price great value for price great October 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for my Travel Trailer I really do love my new generator. I bought this for my travel trailer to use during hunting season. This generator powers everything in my trailer to include the air conditioning as it is RV ready with the 30 amp plug. 68 dB , this generator for the money is awesome! October 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Gift This was a gift for my sister. I had it shipped to her. She is very happy with the generator. October 17, 2015
