Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a few appliances or tools Since the layout of my house is not conducive for a portable generator to run the furnace or hot water heater I wanted a smaller generator to power the refrigerator, cell phones and laptops and the alarm system (which is rechargeable). I also wanted something I could power some tools on when working far from the house. This accomplish that perfectly. Its small enough for me to move on my own, but I do wish it had wheels as carrying over distance is not easy. The instructions are clear, and the "quick start" guide is perfect as a reminder as hopefully I won't need to use it more than a couple times per year. Granted it is brand new, but it started right up, no problem. And because it is Briggs & Stratton I am confident it will last a long, long time. I have a Briggs & Stratton lawn mower than still starts on the first pull after many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! This is a great little generator. After adding the oil and gas it started on the second pull. I let it run for about an hour or so to break it in. It ran quieter than I expected it to. I then plugged a few hand tools in to it and it didn't sputter at all. It has four household outlets, a three gallon gas tank and will run up to 10 hours on half a load. Will definitely come in handy for power outages and some recreational usages. Highly recommend this generator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Portable Power in a box This is a very nice unit which should provide years of service. If you can take care of a lawn mower, then this generator should not be a problem to use. There are a couple possible issues, and I am not the only one to them. First the oil bottle that came with the generator was punctured in shipping and required several wipe downs of the generator to clean it up. There is a screw next to the on/off switch where the bottle is tie wrapped and it is too long and punctured the oil bottle. The second is the ground wire on the on/off switch came loose during shipping and there was no included wiring diagram to show where it should go. Through trial and error, I found it had to be connected 'above' the other wire on the switch. Also, the web site is mostly not working as I write this, but I assume it will be fixed eventually. The generator has a nice design, and except for the location of the spark plug, is very easy to service. To add oil, I had to tip the unit on it's back, which is a pain as you have to tip it back to measure if it is full. I am very happy with the unit. Mine starts on the second pull, every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what was needed After getting the unit in from HomeDepot and did all the checks and fills started the unit and let it run for its break in time. Started right up on first start and seemed a easier after the break in.After that I tried a few different power tools on it and seemed to work with no problems. I have not really put any kind of load on it for reasons that I don’t believe that I will max it out. I just got it mostly for camping trips and little things away from power.
