Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, great value, great service Ordering from home depot was great, super fast shipping. Initial quality of this generator seems good, but I won't know for sure until I am able to use it more. Starts right out of the box with ease, good instructions, and powered a bunch of different tools and appliances with ease. The only issue I had was with the chain that connects the fuel tank to the fuel tank cap... It broke instantly and dropped into the tank. I was able to get it out and I don't really see the use for it anyway so no big deal. I got it on sale through Home Depot and felt like it was a steal! February 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by U Need U Got Great for home use, wish I had when power went out last time. Unpacked, filled with oil, gas, enabled choke, pulled once and it started right up. plugged in grinder and ran smooth. This will be great for camping, outages, weddings? ok maybey not. Live well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just big enough for emergency usage Got this during holidays sat a terrific discount. Had looked at a small generator to get us through power outages . Mainly something to run our sumps but enough for a space heater or fridge with a couple of lights . This fit the bill . Filled fuel and oil , set it up and it started on the second pull. It almost cranked up on the first pull. Tested it with some garage electrical items and put it in storage for whenever we need it. Thanks for one of best deals I've seen on a generator over 2k watts . ALSO this has a 2 yr warranty which few others share. January 24, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Oil leak I got one last week and I was super happy. I ran it and load tested it and was happy with everything including the noise level. I ran it about 1.5 hours the noise level being much less than our mower. As I turned the fuel valve off I see a oil drip between the engine and the generator section of the unit. It was a 4''x4'' puddle that appeared to be coming from the output shaft seal. I took it back to HD and ordered the same unit. Easy returns @ HD. December 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2500 Watt Generator So far so good. Picked it up as a precaution for this years hurricane season. At 2500w it's enough to power the "essentials" if our power goes out and small enough to transport for camping, etc.. Got it on sale during a "deal of the day" special and it arrived several days before estimated delivery date.I like that this one has an amp/volt meter on it so you can monitor load as you power up equipment. Also like that it has 4 outlets for convenience. Un-boxed it and it was in great shape, filled with fuel (non-ethanol), and it fired right up with a couple pulls. I have only used it so far to power 500w flood lights and a couple of large fans while testing it's operation. Ran it for 2-3 hours with no problems. Afterwards I shut off fuel to the carburetor and allowed it to run dry for storage. Only additional item I wish it was equipped with would be a hobbs meter (hour meter), planning on adding on at a later date so that I can keep track of run time for maintenance. Only con is that it is a little louder than I expected it to be...think push lawnmower. June 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worked well when needed I was surprised by a power outage 3 days ago. Just bought this generator from The Home Depot for an emergency just like the one I had. It was about 5 degrees outside when the power went out, I pulled on the cord 3 or 4 times, and this baby started right up. It ran my furnace, and a couple lights, and the fridge without a problem. I think it's a good machine,and at a great price. March 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awsome piece of equipment We have battled this horrible Winter like everyone else in the Mid-East.We have had incredible luck!!(knock on wood) regarding the utilities in Ohio.This item is another precaution we have taken in the event our luck changes..The price was incredible! I appreciate having "good people" from The Home Depot!! February 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for basic needs Bought this before the big ice storm. Helped us get through 4 days with out power. Started on first pull. Ran 4 days on about 6 gals of gas. Wish it had a 220 outlet. February 19, 2014
