Energy Storm 5,500-Watt 389cc Gasoline Powered Electric Start Inverter Generator with Remote Start is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Energy storm 5600i Installed spark plug, oil and hooked up battery and started right up. Idle was rough so i gapped spark plug like others suggested and then was fine. It is auto choke so can take a minute to run smooth. Quiter than most normal generators but not nearly as quiet as a honda inverter generator. Wheels are nice if you are on a solid surface but dig into grass. I can run both ac and microwave at same time in my camper but ac needs to be on before microwave or trips breaker when compressor comes on

Delivered to store and I picked it up. A Little bigger than expected but actually lighter than expected. After adding the oil per the instructions added I tried to start and nothing happened not even a click. Did a little trouble shooting and found that the negative ground wire to the battery had come loose. Re-attached and it started right up. Hooked it up to my travel trailer and ran AC unit TV radio and fridge with no problem (all at the same time). Should have enough power to run a couple other appliances but have had to yet. With the exception of the loose battery cable it was exactly as expected. Can barely hear it when in the trailer. I think the 58db at 23 feet is pretty accurate. Portability could be a challenge but it will provide enough wattage to run everything you want in your trailer.

This generator worked excellent for 3 weeks, then all of a sudden while I was using a compressor and saw on it, it seemed to choke down and came to an abrupt stop. I had no problems with it prior to this episode. I tried to restart it, no luck. Had to return it but ordered same one as a replacement and will see how that goes.

I picked it up and followed the instructions by adding oil, fuel and connecting the battery. I test ran the generator at home to make sure it worked ok and to break the engine in. The generator is used for my RV and handles all the appliances.

It depends on what you buy this machine for and how mobile you want it to be. I bought it to run my equipment at farmers markets and chose it because of the specification write up. It was stated that this generator ran super quiet at 59db. This was not the case and within 15 minutes I was told to shut it down by the market manager. Sure it produced the power but far too loud for my purposes. This is also a very heavy machine and I found the wheels way too small for the weight. It's ok on smooth concrete but forget about grass. If you don't mind upsetting close neighbors and you don't plan to move it around, then this is a good product for the price. On a personal note, I used it once and returned it for a Honda.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind! After way too much research I finally decided on this unit. First comment: Delivery. Estes Freight hit their promised time within 5 minutes. The shipment was perfect, the box wasn't even scuffed. The driver even helped my wife move it into the yard. Thanks Estes. Unpacked the unit, again, perfect condition. I looked the unit over and I am very satisfied with the initial quality. It unit is fully assembled as shipped, even the wheels are installed. The battery was factory connected and fully charged. The only thing required was the purchase of the recommended oil, fill the unit, twist the key, and it started within seconds. We put a load on it, and again, no issues. During my research of Lifan oproducts I had seen comments as to low quality manuals. I am going to assume that Lifan read those reviews, as this manual is printed on high gloss, heavy bond stock, with clear well-written instructions. I did spot one typo due to translations but if that the worse thing I can find... As to the noise: This is a 15 HP unit yet is noticably quieter than our 6.5 HP lawn mower. No one in the house heard it running. My wife and I had a conversation standing next to it. Home Depot specs state this is a 68DB rating: however, the product specs states 58DB. I believe the lower number. The only thing left to do besides regular starts is to wait on a power outage and fire up both submersible pumps, the fridge, and a few other essentials. Yes! That is peace of mind!
