Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by a very good purchase Was a very good purchase.I bought this generator to run my camper air and it does it well,plus runs the micro wave at the same time..I love the price,beats the Honda and the Yamaha.This is the 2nd one..Three of my friends bought one each and they feel the same as I do about mine.The best feature for us is the remote start ..We are happy campers now and we all need the air as we are over 70 yrs of age.Now we go camping in warm weather also...Fishing fools. This year has been so good because of the Lifan 3600..Thanks Homedepot...P A from ohio June 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost a honda at 1/3 the cost I've used this unit for 2 outages already here with 38 hours runtime. I run a 7000 btu portable A/C unit and my 26 cf side by side fridge as well as a smaller 15 cf fridge with no issues. It does run right at 59db in eco mod. Oil change is easy. My kill-a-watt meter says it is running at 59.9 hz When both fridges are cold I remove them and plug in the chest freezer and neighbors fridge to help them out. I made a DIY ground clamp June 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great deal. Bad shipping. Generator works great. Starts very easily. However was damaged during shipping and have a hard time getting parts replaced. August 15, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Difficult to start. Unreliable power. I have the ESI 3600ie, the previous model without the remote start. Since day 1, it has been a 30 minute project to start. I live in Western Mass, and per Lifan USA, there are no authorized service centers closer than Boston. Eventually I discovered that by taking out the air filter, spraying it with a little starting ether, and replacing it, the unit will start and run, but it does not run smoothly. This is an expensive inverter generator whose purpose is to give rock-solid clean electricity, yet incandescent lights flicker. I wouldn't trust my electronics to this generator. There is a lot of easily cracked hard plastic in the infrastructure, so I wouldn't want to be loading and unloading this unit often. I recommend you look elsewhere. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good For the Money! Just as nice as my Yamaha 3000iseb! Let me first say I was VERY SCEPTICAL of this off brand name. I have previously had Yamaha inverter generators (2000is, 2400is and a 3000ISEB) All were amazing generators no complaints other than their PRICE tags. I no longer have near as much use for a generator so after MUCH debate (I rarely go cheap on anything and being a small engine mechanic I was super skeptical) I decided to gable on this inexpensive no name unit. Generator was received in half the estimated delivery time. Despite prior reviews of damage due to poor packing I was very impressed with the rididy of the box and packing, unit was in perfect condition. Directions leave a lot to be desired but Simple start up, hooked up Negative battery cable, added oil, gas and it started right up. Idles smooth, QUIET! even at full load just as quiet as all my Yamahas and Hondas I have been around. I have a 38' fifth wheel with a single 15,500 BTU A/C Starts A/C just fine even in economy mode. I can even use microwave while A/C is running. Remote start is a neat feature but doubt ill use it much. I can not attest to durability as I have only run it for about and hour, but so far so good, very impressed with this low cost alternative. Will post more after I run it for three days straight at the lake in a few weeks. April 28, 2014
