Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hard working and pretty, too 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. December 15, 2014
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 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 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
