Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Twister Quality Generator
I purchased this generator, for some part time power when I am away from a power pole. I'm really satisfied with it, next time I will purchase one with a starter and a wheel kit. Like all generators it is very heavy, and I need the wheel kit for it. Definitely a quality product, would recommend it for diy'ers and pros alike, when you want a generator that will stand the line for you, this is the one Thanks Twister of Central Texas

I've used it several times with a electric mortar mixer and when the motor was turned you could hardly tell that the generator was under a load. I was impressed. Great Product Thanks

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anthony 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!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TGIF Runs Great but had broken parts in the box
The product runs great, though when i got it the Air Box was broken off the mounts. I called the company and they didn't have the parts "Available yet" as it was a "new model". I did my research before calling and they have another product that uses the same air box, but was unable to get.
I picked up the pieced, used some gorilla glue and got it all rebuilt. Thru on some duct tape, placed the filter back in and bolted it back up (was in 5 pieces). Runs good an strong, though after a few hours of running one of the pieces are starting to come loose from the vibration. I'll call back in a few months and see if I can get a new air box.
Since my box didnt' have any damage, i knew this happened at the time of packaging it into the box. NO HARM to Home Depot as wasn't their fault, but be aware from the manufacture.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FoamGuy 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kilker12 Super Happy with this purchase
Super happy with this genny. Me and my friend split the cost when it was on sale for $200. After using our friends gennies which were very unreliable it is amazing to have our own that we always know will be ready for us. We run it around 6-9 hours at a time on a single tank of gas at around 2000 watt load. It runs strong and hard. A bit heavy but its not like we move it around a lot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jake 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.
