I bought this so my wife could have backup power for our basement sump pump in case I was absent. It is easy to set up and manuver. She was also able to start it with ease. It will also make a nice power source for tailgating as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solidly Built Unit I bought this generator AFTER we had been out of power for 5 1/2 hours with flooding rain. Ended up with 1 1/2 feet of water in our basement and expected flooding again the next night. So I haven't had any reason to put gas in and start it up, planning on using it for emergency power only, but keeping fresh gas available at all times. I know of Generac's reputation for quality and after assembling the handle and wheels and doing a good looking over I can tell they have a great quality program. I was very pleased in everything I saw and I am actually looking forward to needing to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy! Not loud! I am very pleased with this generator! I bought this generator with the fact in mind that I'm not always home when the power goes out. I needed something that my wife and 10 year old boy could move around, hook up everything and crank it up if I wasn't there. I wanted dependability, and security in my mind that they could and it would start when they needed it! This unit is great for housing developments because the noise level is not that loud. (Bigger is not always Better if it's so big they can't use it).

Not sure how long they will leave this review up, but Home Depot emailed me and asked me for my rating and comments. I wish I didn't have to click on one star, it doesn't deserve it! I am returning this generator. After less than a day of running this junk, it is leaking oil. My old one I had for 15 years+ never leaked a drop. Now I have to drag this new one back up to the store and deal with a return/exchange. Not happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product great This generator saved us through hurricane Irma!!! It ran efficiently and provided us the means to feed our neighbor's while waiting a week for power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Well and Met Our Emergency Power Needs We ordered the generator a few days before hurricane Irma hit our area. It was easy to assemble and started up right away. Very easy to use and performed well during the storm. It saved our refrigerated food and powered a fan and light to keep us more comfortable.
