Review for ESI4000iER: We bought this generator for a 5000 mile RV trip to run our air conditioner. It preformed very well and ran the air-conditioner with on problem. It would not run the air-conditioner and microwave at the same time, but that was not an issue for us. I would recommend this generator.

Bought this generator for our RV so when we are at a campground that does not have power and it's 95 degrees we can still run the air conditioning. This generator started right up and powered the AC without a hesitation. I would highly recommend it. And it's every bit as quiet as more expensive models.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nicky2toes Great product, up there with Honda
We bought this to run our travel trailer. Everyone is talking about Honda's but when you look at the standard features (key fob remote start, electronic fuel injection, battery maintainer) on these units they flat out are more bang for the buck than the Honda's.

I have a hunting cabin that is off grid. Nothing beats waking up at 5:00 AM, sit up in bed, and hit the remote switch to start your day. No getting out in the cold wet morning. The coffee is brewing and I have hot water as needed. I am powering a small microwave, water pump, and coffee brewer along with a few lights all at the same time with no problems. She's a bit difficult to start at first, but runs great once it gets started. I like the energy saver button the runs much quieter when I am only using a small amount of power. The neighbor has a Honda 3000 that is a bit quiter, but it burns oil and has left us in the dark on occasion as it shut down due to low oil. I plan to build a container system next to the house to hard wire into the cabin since running the inverter on the deck has it too close to the windows. It will be hardly noticable once I get it a few feet from the cabin. So far, its been a great purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gillhunter 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

The description on Home Depot is not the product description on the product after I received it. The owners manual is generic and does not cover this model as it should. Your description said it was capable of being hooked up parallel and according to to their customer service department it is NOT. It rocks back and forth on its wheels on a level concrete floor. It is quite. During my try out. But haven't hooked a load to it yet or even ran it more than 15 minutes... I have had to call their customer service several times for information on this product.. I hope as I use it I like it more or it will go to an auction and I'll buy a different brand from a different source.... Not pleased at this time

After 4 hours of use the fan broke. Lifan's customer service was of no use. The bright spot is that Home Depot Customer Service was attentive to my request to replace.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Randy 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
