Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is for sale in CA and is CARB compliant. THIS IS FOR SALE IN CALIFORNIA . I have had it shipped to me in CA> the associate that I talked had contacted the factory and they said it is CARB and is stated as such at the bottom of the description. The top of the ad by the picture says that it can't be shipped to AR CA HI PR etc but this is in a error. They are supposed to correct it soon. The other Generac inverter Gen that is CARB is the IX 800 These are the only two that are CARB compliant units that are for sale here. Just for your information and may save some time in researching Generac CARB Inverter Generators. I wanted to post this now since summer is here and it is great for camping since it is small and your electrical needs are low like to a fan for the tent to a Hair dryer for the wife or a electric coffee pot. This is a no nonsense generator. Starts every time and has a excellent warranty. Good luck this summer RC May 26, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by did not power a saw So much wrong with this product. the worst thing was that the manufacturer said it would power a mitre saw and it did not. The oil plug is so hard to get to and it easily falls into the body of the generator and the whole thing has to be taken apart to get it out. Pain in the behind! Not worth the trouble!
