Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ricloo09 Very Strong Generator!!!
Bought this generator to power my 25' fifth wheel trailer. Has the 30 amp plug on the generator.
Started this generator up plugged in my camper, turned on everything!!! A/C, Refrigerator, 7 lights, radio, TV, DVD player, RV Pump and microwave all at the same time and it powered it all!! very satisfied, the only reason i didn't give this full rating on features was cause it does not have a fuel level indicator. Love how easy it is to move with wheels and handle!!! would recommend this to anyone!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WesT The little generator that could
This little generator provided our family with some sanity during the 14 day power outage after Hurricane Sandy. After 4 days without power, my wife made it her mission to find a generator while I was at work. She called and told me she found a 3500 watt unit at Home Depot. While I wanted a 7000 watt, I told her to grab it and we'd make do. Well this little thing provided all the power we needed to run the oil burner, one full size refrigerator, many lights, and the coffee maker all at the same time! It is very fuel efficient and easy to start. It's 4 gal tank would last us about 10-12 hrs. For the price, you can't beat it! We just love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chief Great buy for the price
Saw this generator at my local Home Depot, compared it online to others, went back to buy it. Installed the wheels and rests, added the oil, filled the tank, and it started first pull. Plugged in two air compressors, a jaws electric chain saw and a vacumn cleaner and it powered them all with no problem. Not crazy about buying something with an overseas engine, but anything with a Briggs was so much higher priced and wasn't worth the added cost for the limited use this one will get. Nice looking unit, hope it performs as well as it looks. Didn't have any 30 amp appliances to test it on, but having the 30 amp outlet and four 20 amp outlets sure is nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Solid Built Generator excellent value
This Generator has Started 2 times on the first pull after being in storage for a few weeks between tests. It is solidly built. It powered my 14.5 amp 120v electric chain saw and full sized refrigerator, gas furnace circuits with circulator motor and 3 household lights with with slight slowdown(normal) in a test. The gas tank is all steel and has a shut off valve with easy access hoses for easy draining for long term storage. The only thin this generator is missing is a gas gauge otherwise I would give it excellent ratings all over. It is as loud as a typical push lawn mower, which was not too bad as well. Instructions(included), and complete parts list are available from Powerstroke's website.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TomH Like an insurance policy
Past power outages have ruined a chest freezer full of food a couple of times. I bought this generator because it had a good wattage rating for the price. I only ran it once on the day I received it. It was easy to start and it had no trouble keeping several devices running, including the freezer. The only cheep feeling component is the choke lever. I plan to treat it gently. The instructions for emptying the gas were confusing. I was uncomfortable with dismantling critical gas lines in order to get all of the gas out. I’m not sure how other generators accomplish this. I just siphoned the excess gas out of the tank and ran the engine until the lines were empty. That took about 15 minutes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoeSport Great purchase
great little generator, I'm at half load +/- and using ~1 gallon for 4 hours... It's noise level at 40' is 71dba, and I can live with that, but definitely wouldn't take it to a provincial park! The wheels are for pavement or packed path, could have been a bit more clearance, but overall great purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by boatman181 Best Generator for the Price
This is a great little generator, easy setup and even on a cold day, starts with one easy pull. Liked it so much I went and bought one for a family member. The only negative thing I would have to say is the starting lever which sets the choke is made of plastic and is rather long and has a lot of flex in it. Over time I'm not sure if it might fail over time. You cant beat this generator. Never seen one like it that starts this easy with one pull, in the dead of winter when it is 20 degrees outside.

Ordered this generator to my local store. When I went to pick it up, the box was pretty damaged. I should have inspected it in the store but, I gave them the benefit of the doubt. Turns out. Instruction manual was missing, wheels were missing and a breather tube was broken off. Returned and re ordered. Went to pick up new one and opened in store. Same breather tube is broken off. Asked for a refund on the spot. Went elsewhere and bought a different brand.
