Bought this on sale to run my camping trailer. When I got the shipment the box looked rough and when I opened it up the unit had some damage on the side on a small panned. Since it didn't affect the running of the machine, and I needed it for my trip I didn't return it. I put on the wheel kit, which is easy, filled with oil and gas and it started right up.
On the camping trip is when it started giving me problems. On the second day in the evening we were running it to charge up the battery and run the a/c for a bit. I heard some very loud noises coming from it like it was falling apart. I shut it off thinking it was from the engine and didn't want to blow it. Checked the oil and all the other things I could think of and started her up again. Same thing started happening and I was able to track it to the recoil on the pull rope. Something was terribly wrong inside and I had to stop running it. I took it back to the store and got a full refund. Store didn't give me any issues when I took it back. At first they told me I couldn't return it with gas, but the cashier called someone and they said it was fine.

Purchased this model after a great deal of research. This generator was purchased for my camper at my deer lease. Generator fired up on first pull, and to date has been used four separate nights. Easily powered a 1500 watt heater, lights, a coffee pot etc. Ran all night plus on a full tank each time. Noise was less than anticipated, and easy to maneuver with supplied wheel kit. As with all economically priced generators I would not recommend plugging sensitive electronics into it; my portable Blueray did not like it, but then again, it was also several hundred dollars less than a similar wattage generator with inverter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NorCal Good for job site.
I don't usually leave reviews for products even if I love them simply because I don't have the time. This is one product though, that I just had to come back and share my personal experience.
I was a little hesitant when I ordered this because the price was so much lower than comparable generators. We are using this on a job site that does not have grid power pulled in yet. We are able to run one power tool at a time on this thing which is fine. Two will start at one time, but it does start to bog in the cut. We are using a table saw, chop saw, skilsaw, sawzall and 1.5HP air compressor.
Also, I'd like to add that it starts right up on the first or second pull even when outside temp was 28 degrees F. Very pleased with this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1lady easy to put together and use.
I got the generator online. It came in a matter of days and was double boxed with no damage what so ever. The handle and wheels had to be put on the generator. I am a female in my late 60's and had no problem doing this. The instructions were very clear. The generator is easy to use with the manual being very clear on "how and whats". I am very happy this generator. I would recommend it. I bought this one because everything about this generator seemed great when checking reviews, recommendations and features. I haven't had it long though, to say whether it will be long lasting, but it does have a warranty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tallman2 SUPER VALUE!
Looking for emergency power during an outage? I would highly recommend that you take this generator into consideration. I am amazed how much you get for the money. I would give it ten stars in value if I could. I haven't had an outage yet ( a good thing ) but upon running break-in and testing it has showed how far China has come in producing some quality products. Assembly of the enclosed hardware is very simple and all the tools needed are enclosed and even extras. Add oil, a little gas, a few pulls and off it goes. It is quieter than expected and ran smooth. This unit comes with features that some higher priced don't have. Research and see.
I like the way it was packaged, box within a box. It was shipped quickly and at my doorstep in less than a week. NICE!
