Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good small generater The 60 Lbs is a little heavy for me but not too much ( I'm over 70)-I still can carry it 20-25 ft OK .If I have to take it farther I use my hand truck or the wheel barrow. Easiest starting small engine I have ever had! some have said it is a little noisy. I find it to be very quiet. I use it for power saws and chain saws. No problem at all. Only one thing I can say in the negative--The little thing they have for a gas gauge ---well it's a joke! but if anybody can't figure out how much gas they have in it, they don't need to try to use tools in the first place! It does what I got it for -- That's all I ask of it anyway. June 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Generator, Good price Ordered 2500W generator on line, Box looks ok outside but surprised to see Plug wire plastic cap broken & Dent on the front side of generator, as a car tech by trade taped the plug wire together, put oil & gas, 4 pull, Generator runs quiet!!! Plug my a/c runs like a champ! Returned to HD next, call customer service they said they will send another for even better discounted price :) Brigs & stratton is the reason I got this product will use it for yard work & camp.... July 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good so far! I own 3 generators currently, and use a few others as well. Some are high quality, some of lower tier manufactures. I ran it for an hour under no load, to break inthe engine. Then I ran it another 2-3 hours to charge a bank of deep cycle batteries, chargeing at 6 amps 12v DC using a AC charger. My impressions is that this is a good quality unit. It has features that are necessary (fuel on/off valve), easy access to oil fill/dipstick. The force to pull start cord is very easy. The noise level is higher than the small inverter generators of the same size. February 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by exactly what i was looking for. Easy to start and reasonably quiet. At 60 pounds its easy to move around. Put a 1500 watt surge on it and it picked it up right away. Very happy with the purchase. Being a Briggs and Stratton unit made the difference in my purchasing the gen set. November 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by New toy Havnt use it yet but have it ready just incase the lights go out. January 6, 2015
