Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't waste your money After experiencing a power outage during Hurricane Sandy, I was excited to unpack my ix1600 so I could have some light and possibly some heat. It FAILED right out of the box. I oiled the unit as per instructions, put new gas into the unit and followed the start up procedures. After the engine started, I heard "crackle, crackle, snap, POP!!!" then the generator went into overload without anything plugged into the unit. The unit was brought into the Generac dealer for repair 3 WEEKS AGO! Generac's customer service is non-existant and they don't appear to be standing behind this piece of garbage. Buyer beware -- this unit is not made in the US as Generac advertises, but China. November 26, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worked well I bought this for my boat to keep the batteries charged. They unit worked well, but was a little louder than I expected. The only thing I didn't like was if it wnet into an overload condition, there is no way to reset it other than turning it off and restarting. A breaker would be nice. August 12, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by BAD PRODUCT I have had this unit for 2 years and only been able to use it three times and those times it would not keep running or would not start. This unit has spent more time in the shop then in use. I contacted Generac for a refund and they refused. As soon as possible I will sell this unit and get a generator that works. I would not recommend anyone buy a generac. I was told Generac was the top of the line, you could not prove that by me. August 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great unit for bush camping! Bought this unit for camping away from power and people. Supplies my trailer with power for the fridge, furnace, stereo, TV and charges my units battery if I need it to. Don't know how I got along without one for so long.Light and easy to move, start and hook up. I highly recomend this unit for and hardcore campers, very satisfied customer. July 23, 2014
