Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lived up to claims The set up was easy from installing wheels to oil and gas. The generator started on the second pull and ran quiet. Subsequent starts were on the first or second pull. Used to run power tools and lights to work on an old house. Very pleased with the quiet run and power output. October 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for the Price The product is good for the money. It is much quieter than many other similar spec'd gens. September 16, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by I like my new generator, but .................. It wont stay running when you first start it cold. Choke it, pull it, it starts. Turn the choke off and it dies. Once it warms up after you run it for 2- 3 minutes with the choke 1/2 on, then you can slowly move the choke to the on position and it will run good. This part is a pain. Thinking about taking it to a local small engine repair shop to see if they can fix it. February 18, 2014
