Rated 5 out of 5Â by ChrisTR Great product
I needed to purchase a new electric start generator as my job does not always allow me to be home when a storm hits (shift wok). My wife needs to be able to get the generator started when I'm not home. I looked at a few lesser models but I knew I would be sorry. I decided to purchase this unit from Generac as they are one of the best. Easy to assemble: installed the wheels, attached the battery cables and put the oil in. Started right up. Has a fuel shutoff so you can run the carburetor dry (so it doesn't get plugged up. Low oil shutoff so as not to seize the engine. Great product and I would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JRibew716 All the features plus quality & value
We bought this portable generator to use at our rural property in central Texas and put it to work the first week after pick-up from local HD. It has powered a 90-lb. jackhammer, a concrete mixer, and a chop-saw without a hiccup. Studied long before purchase and found a brand that offered features that mattered to me. Electric start (I'm 62), fuel shut-off (I can run the carb dry for storage), battery charger with plug-in port on machine), easy enough to ramp onto a utility trailer. The hour-meter is nice, too.
This machine is sturdy and well made. Construction grade comes to mind. Very pleased with purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by gdmig3 Generator does not recharge battery
I purchased this generator 2 months ago. Works fine but the battery discharges and will not restart the machine after about 25 starts. I called the customer service folks at Generac and they informed me that there is no alternator on the machine and it will not recharge the battery. You have to plug in the 12 volt charger to a power source and recharge it manually. I use this machine to power a remote cabin and have no power. I did the research and no where did Generac state that the generator would not keep the battery charged. Unbelievable!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bebowman The electric start and wattage were my main concerns.
It's everything I wanted in a portable generator. Easy to start, plenty of power and is affordable. Has a nice fold out handle and wheel kit, easy to roll around. A fuel gauge adds to ease of use. The provided extension cords helps load balancing when running 110 volt applications. Noise levels were lower than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Charlie Great Unit for emergency power
The assembly was straight forward and easy to implement. I purchased this unit to replace an existing emergency generator that was older. The electric start was a major improvement over my existing generator. The unit started up immediately with no issues. Unfortunately the power cord was not in the carton but a call to Home Depot's service using the number on the packing slip resulted in a promise to ship out a power cord to me with receipt in two weeks or less.
