Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chip Lifan EnergyStorm 2200W Generator
The Lifan EnergyStorm generator is great for all your outdoor events, easy to use and doesn't take up to much space. Surprisingly runs quiet. If your looking for a good,durable and easy to manage quiet running generator then the Lifan EnergyStorm 2200W generator is the way to go.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OpaMan It works like it should
Observations after 5 days of running it to charge boat and car batteries as well as running a 700 watt microwave.
1. Turn on gas valve, motor switch and full choke and it starts on 1st or 2nd pull.
2. Charge batteries and run microwave at the same time. No problem.
3. Oil level did not drop in 5 days of running about 9-10 hours per day.
4. I spilled gas every time I filled it up since you can not tell how full it is till it is overflowing.
5. Twice as loud as the Honda 2000w generator in camp but 1/4 the cost..
6. It is heavy so I bought a nice roller cart to move it.
7.Had to bend the metal shield around the spark plug so the sharp edge would not cut the wire.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by R2Devil does the job
Bigger than expected and idles higher than I thought it would but then it produces good power at idle.
I cut a 2x4 with a circular saw whose blade was so dull it mostly just burnt through the wood and the generator never slowed down or popped a breaker.
It is over 50 pounds so unless you are healthy use a dolly.
The general instructions are junk so when you buy the unit (the money difference makes up for the rest) buy a quart of 10-30 oil and expect to put 3/4 of it in to begin.
The muffler has a fitting on it and I will be experimenting with that to put a pipe up to raise the exhaust gasses.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Captbb Good value for the price
Bought as hurricane backup, only time will tell. Shipped to local store, no damage. Followed instructions, oil little hard to put in, started 3rd pull, ran for 3 hours under load, seems to be capable little somwhat noisy generator. Choke handle extremely vulnerable, beware!! Plan to run monthly to assure readiness.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2HAPPY Good Product Fair Price
Totaly does the job required, storm outages. Light enough to carry short distance and fit in the trunk of my Ford Focus. A little noisy but i'm not worried when my power is out and the price is right.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrCan great little unit for the price
I bought this unit for camping, Though I have not taken it on a trip yet, I have run it, and put various loads on it
without any problems. Including a 1000W electric heater. However at 1500W the motor did bog down, and ran slower.on a heavy load.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ironmike wish i did not need one in such a hurry
this product was shipped with oil in it which did nt show on the dipstick so when i went to fill it with the instructed amount, oil spilled in my garage.
the choke lever was broken off prior to shipping so trying to start the generator took some effort because the instruction book did not match the generator. so trying to find a choke lever that was not there was difficult. had to remove panels before i could see where the lever was supposed to be.
the generator was too loud to even use at a campsite.
