3,500-Watt Energy Storm 196 cc Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from cranks easy,runs quiet,great on gas this seems to be a good machine,I have not had to run it a lot but when I did it fired up quickly and went to work.I loaned it to my dad next door and it was so quiet you could not hear it in the house.It just great on gas and so far has been a real little trooper.A little hard to change the oil,but with a long neck funnel not a big deal.None of the ones I have seen were ever easy to change the oil so I cant complain much about it.All my friends want one.We are ready for the next round of storms.Also has voltage regulator which makes safer to use on computer,just do not let run out of gas while on one.Not a good thing to do.Great little machine.Real happy with it.Joel M.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from portable and powerful Home Depot we are very, very pleased. I own several other generators, we get lot of power outages here in Katy, TX. But this little unit is perfect because its so easy to MOVE AROUND. Part of the problem when power goes out is that you need it in multiple locations. This little unit couldn't power every electical item in your whole house but its great for the running key stuff like fridges, freezer, ac, etc. I thought I would overlload this one, but we never did. Shoot, its Perfect. Plus its only 90lbs so its easy to move to another location and store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from runs great ran on first pull. A little difficult to reach starter cord but since it puilled and started on first pull it seems fine. Only complaint - the filler hole for oil is way under the motor and difficult to get at. Had to dig up a funnel to get oil into the hole. They say to fill to bottom of hole but not really practical. They need to have a longer neck on the filler spout. runs really quietly for a generator. Was cutting grass while it was running. Noticed that the motor was about the same noise level as the 6HP B&S 4 cycle lawn mower engine. I used to wonder why my older coleman generator was SO MUCH louder than a lawnmower - really good. I would recommend this unit - of course it is out of stock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product i was a little weary about ordering a brand i have never heard of on line. however i am very pleased with the product. it also came with wheels and handles to roll it where you need it. i am using it to run my camper, and it has no problem running the a/c, tv , and whatever else at the same time. also came with electric start. how ever i will never use it since it starts so easy with the pull start. first pull ever time so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far...GREAT! I've only run this thing for 45 minutes to test it. I ran it at it's rated load (26 amps) and it never blinked. It started on the first pull and ran smoothly until I decided that it could indeed handle 3000 watts no problem. I can't tell you how long it will last, because I just got it, but I was so impressed, that I bought another one. I did a lot of research before I tried this one. Nothing else could touch this thing for the price and the rated load. I did buy another generator (different brand, different company) at the same time that I bought this one and it was garbage. I struggled to start it and when it finally started, it couldn't even pull half of it's rated load. I took that one back!...... I'm keeping these two!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy! We have had ours for 2 years now and love it. Put on the choke 2 pulls and it starts everytime. We run our pellet stove, fridge, tv and dish all at the same time and could still add a freezer or 2. We also take it in our motorhome to run it. Doesn't use much gas either. Best purchase we have every made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3500 watt generator for $359.00!? I just recieved my new LIfan 3500 watt generator. I added 20 oz. of 30 weight 0il and put a gallon of gas in it and put the choke on closed pulled the starter rope and it started on 1st pull. It is less noisy than previous generators I have purchaced. I use this in my carpet cleaning business. The equipment I use is electric powered and I needed it to run one of the 3 cords which it takes to run machine with the generator .. Does fine the amperage on that cord is about 17 amps which of course it handles easliy.
