LIFAN Power USA prides itself in standing behind all its products with a 3 Year Limited Warranty and the highest level of service and support with a complete parts and service network. All LIFAN generators are made with Horizontal Shaft OHV engines which feature Industrial duty upgrades like cast iron sleeves, automotive grade rods, pistons, rings, crankshafts, valve and valve springs.

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Deal! Nice available power! Great price and very easy to pull start - really does not need the included electric start. Supplies plenty of power for emergency use or at the jobsite. Nice to have 240 volts available. Quick and easy to assemble. I highly recommend this unit. December 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Has better run time rating on 4 gal gas tank than competors. I have only ran it about 15 minutes and everything seems fine.The master circuit breaker and the switch to allow 120v only or 120v/240v allows more available 120v watts.are both nice features. I had a larger battery rack built that holds a larger (19ah) better quality battery than the 10ah specified battery and it extends about 1" farther away from the generator fan exhaust than the supplied rack.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dont bother my advice don't waste your time. i ordered this generator twice shipped site to store. the first one had a hole in the bottom of the gas tank due to the way they package the legs for the wheel kit (under the gas tank) after we finished pouring gas all over our deck we returned it & re-ordered. The second time home depot was nice enough to open the box, look it over & assemble the unit. We intended to start it before we left the store but yet again we never got that far. Gas leak! this time from the filter! A complete waste of 2 trips to the store 3 gals of gas & 2 bottles of oil. The staff @ home depot was extremely helpful with the return but in short I still don't have a generator. Next time I think i'll risk paying a little more & try lowes. November 16, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Low voltage I really liked the style of this unit but when I checked the voltage it would only produce 115 volts. Same meter read 120 volts on my home grid so I called the company. They told me I should be getting 120 volts and they said they would send me a new voltage regulator. I said OK and 2 weeks later still had not heard anything form the company. I emailed and asked about the part. They told me the part was on backorder and did not know when it would ship. Not willing to wait for the unknown delivery of the part decided to return the generator to Home Depot. March 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet, Easy starting The electric start made it easy for even my 100 pound wife to start it. Pull start also works on the first pull. Quieter than other inexpensive units; you can stand in front of it and hold a conversation. Note that the 4000 in the name refers to the peak power, not the running watts, which is 3500. I paid extra for a machine that I thought had more power. The 240V outlet would not run my clothes dryer, or my small arc welder, so I'm not sure what it's there for. The 120v outlet would not run my 4 1/2 hp air compressor. In each case the breaker would trip instantly. It would run my small air conditioner no problem, as well as my table saw and, importantly, my MIG welder. The included battery tray would not fit anything they had at the auto parts store, and would place the battery outside of the protective cage, exposing it to damage during transport. I fabbed an aluminum tray for underneath, and used a 10 AH gel cell with good results. Oil is not included, so pick up some 10-30 when you get it. The assembly instructions are both wrong and incomplete, so use your own common sense when putting it together. Good points: light enough for one man to lift, easy for a small woman to start, nice and quiet. Bad points: useless 240V outlet, blows breaker on inductive start loads for equipment it should handle.
