Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is a solid workhorse. Very reliable I have only used this once but from what I observed this is a solid product. I was able to run a sump pump and well pump with ease April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 369.00 on sale, cheap insurance having a electrician put in a transfer switch wasn't cheap but i had him also install a whole house surge protector. so now i'm prepared for power starts very easily. is quite,plastic wheels that wont go flat in the garage over winter. the electrician said my generator puts out more amps than the one he has.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sturdy , reliable . steady output. Nice heavy frame, reliable power output. Despite the weight,easy to move with the standard wheel/handle kit. April 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome product It starts the first or second pull even in cold weather. It is fairly quiet for the size. It puts out the advertised power. The only feature missing in the 3 KW version is an idle-down with no load. It runs full blast when on and has good voltage regulation with varying loads. March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for the price I bought this generator to run a blower for times where electricity isn't made available at cattle shows. It's compact and lightweight enough to make it hassle free moving between shows. Additionally, it is quiet enough to not give you a headache from hearing it drone all day. The only thing I would change about this is that it lacks an hourmeter. I added one at the cost of about $40, but that feature would have been nice from the factory. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase. February 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by love this thing Generac is a trusted name. Just enough to run the needed pieces. February 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well and portable The power went out again and needed something to run the freezer and a few lights. I wanted someting portable as well. The price was good too. Fired up without issue and works well. February 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One awesome generator There are not many words to express how great a Generac generator is. Choosing this generator was one of the best decisions that I have made even though there are bigger generators this one meets the needs that I have and I wouldn't order any other generator besides a Generac.
