Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jaxmike propane Generator
So far, an excellent generator. It takes about 3 pulls to get it going. My only dislike is that it is very loud.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MLW Very Happy
I was about to purchase a Honda generator when i came upon this propane unit. The Honda was quite a bit more expensive, did not really want to spend so much on something used so little and did not want to store gas. This unit works great for basic needs like our heater, refrigerator and some lights. Could not be happier, well maybe electric start would be better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cantxsailor Works like it should
I bought this generator for use when we take our trailer out beyond the usual camp grounds. So far I'm very impressed with the build and the ease of use. The fact that I no longer have to worry about the carburetor getting clogged up with shellac if the motor isn't started for a while is worth the price. Propane, if used with some intelligence, is safe and it never goes stale and I can find it almost any where. Especially useful when there is no electricity for the local gas station to pump gas. Hurricane Ike taught me a few lessons I will never forget. I'll be a little better prepared now. The generator runs pretty quietly which is nice since quiet is why we go camping in the first place. The folding handle makes moving it around very easy. I can actually load it into my truck using a ramp by myself. It has enough power to run all the stuff in the camper including the A/C. Having A/C or staying in a camper trailer is a treat that not many years ago I would have snubbed as not being "real camping". You know like in a tent. . As my bones age my memory of why I thought that has faded. I like the comfort. More importantly my wife likes it. Happy wife, happy life. M.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DPLNY Zero hassle, a great product.
The only way Generac could improve this product would be to offer a higher wattage portable propane powered unit. The generator was a breeze to set up, probably 10-15 minutes with reading the start up guide and filling the oil. I was very impressed that a long neck funnel was provided as the dipstick/fill location is set in a bit from the edge of the frame. So long as you make sure your propane connection is securely fastened (you will hear the rush of propane continuously when you press the primer button), and follow the procedure printed right on the unit, the generator starts right up and runs smoothly. I was using a gas powered generator on loan during my first 5 days without power from Sandy when this unit was delivered. It was not a moment too soon, with the gas shortage I would not have been able to run the other unit for much longer. This little gem started right up and was pressed into service for another couple of days. It got a bit of a rest then went back into service when the nor'easter hit (yes, it was a long couple of weeks). Propane was in plentiful supply so having a few tanks to fill was never a problem. I will be installing a tap off of my in-ground propane tank before the ground freezes so I won't have to worry about filling the BBQ tanks if we lose power in a blizzard this winter but I have to say it wasn't a problem and the run times exceeded the manufacturers estimates (just running essentials ie: fridge, boiler, TV/DVD for the kids). This unit provides propane emergency back up power without spending a couple of grand or more (plus installation and permits) for a permanent standby generator.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick This generator fills my needs completely
This generator has all of the features that I was shopping for and will eliminate the need to try and store gasoline. Storing gasoline, even with additives is nearly impossible today.
My new generator starts with ease and the instructions were concise and easy to understand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James Pleased with the purchase
It assembled well, no issues. After I put a FULL tank versus the empty one I could not start on, it started exactly as the placard states: choke on, pull twice, choke off, one pull. Vroom.
I bought this for emergency use and have a 100lb tank. LP gas is far more shelf-stable than gasoline.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perryman1979 Great generator
I bought this generator a few years ago and love it. With it being LP you don't have to worry about the gas going bad. The sound level is quiet enough to have a conversation next to it without yelling.
