Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for the money I purchased this because a friend had one. This is a good unit for the price. If you expect the quality of a Honda, go buy a Honda this size and see what you pay. So far so good. It runs better on constant throttle than on auto. I do have to say it is pretty quite. I can stand 5 feet away from it and have a normal conversation and not yell. The key switch broke and will not turn the unit off, I have to turn the gas off to shut it down. The gas cap is cheep and broke so now it just spins on top an not get tight. I didn't expect perfection for 1,500 bucks. I have a 38' motorhome with 2 ac's and it runs them just fine. We race motorcross and bought it for a back up and also to give the motorhome generator a break every once in a while. My onan generator on the motorhome has almost 10,000 hrs on it. Remember you have to use these things to keep them working. So far so good on this unit. October 25, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by energy storm Great looking unit fairly quiet remote works great fuel consumption seems very low July 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A Good Generator for the Price Great generator for the price. Still not as quiet as the Hondas or Yamahas. I actually returned my generator for that and these other reasons: 1) If you run the generator, turn it off, and then need to start it up won't start again for some time. It is almost as if it floods itself immediately after turning it off. 2) There is no pull-start. The Lifan 3600 watt generator had both electric and pull-start capability. If your internal battery dies for any reason...your generator is dead to the world. 3) Heavy. At around 200 lbs, if you are planning to take this camping, getting it into the back of my truck was difficult. 4) Can't lock it up. There are two bars for lifting that can be used for a pseudo-lockup but each of these bars are only held in with 2 screws. So if you have an extra $600 to spend, go with Honda or Yamaha.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by it had great features and quite i used it one time and got about 4 hours on it when the motor locked up and i had my two dogs in my travel trailer it was so hot i never thought a new generator would break after about 4 hours of running time on it this is a piece of trash and is not worth 1500 i paid for it so i i would not buy this generator July 23, 2013
