Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mike Solid overall and nice for the price
Besides the fact that the instructions are horrendous and it arrived with a bent leg, this is a nice little generator. It runs well and does the job, relatively quiet (measured at 83 decibels with no load against the 63 its listed as). Its small and well built, easily portable and very functional. The biggest downside I have seen is that the choke is labeled backwards and the instructions essentially tell you the opposite of what you should do. Also, the valve for where the fuel is fed into the engine is not at the bottom of the tank, so you almost need 3/4 fill to get this thing going. Otherwise, once you figure out its oddities, it starts easy and runs very nicely.

I am really impressed how easy it was to start; one pull and it was running. It is quiet when it is not under load. When you plug in a load the noise increases but not to bad. I am going to use it when it gets really cold to heat my diesel engine before I start it. .I very pleased with my purchase and I would recommend buying anything from Home Depot online.

Rope dislodge from the starter pulley the first pull. Easy fix to repair once I figured out how the rope dislodged from the starter pulley. It is relatively quiet, runs good with what I want to operate (pitching machine).

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Calvin delivered quickly, starts easily and endurance is yet to be determined.
The unit was delivered quickly and I started using it at our cabin to power battery chargers, run a tv, tuner and a couple of lights. It starts easily ( spring and summer temps so far ) and runs smoothly however, it is not as quiet as I originally thought it might be.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by gizmo A fantastic little generator
First off I have to thank Home Depot for speedy and fast delivery. Generator came on time and packaged very well. I added the oil a little gas and on the second pull it was running. The lifan 1500 seems to be about as quite as my friends Yamaha generator. My friend as a 5000 btu window air conditioner. We hooked the unit to my Lifan and it started the unit with no problem. Then we shut the air conditioner off and tried it again and again. Most of the time my new generator did start the air conditioner. I do understand that the air conditioner needed more starting watts than my generator really is putting out. But I'm more than happy with the Lifan easy start and quit what more can you ask for. Also very lite at about 50 pounds take it any where. And a fantastic price for what you are getting.
