3,500-Watt 212cc Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from Great value for the price I bought this generator to power my camper. I've only used it once but it worked great. It is loud but not as loud as I thought it would be. The wheels are kind of cheesy but I'm not using it for work so they should be fine. The bottom line is that you can't beat the price. It was $50 cheaper than my next choice for a 4000W minimum unit. I plugged in the camper and turned on everything I could to try it out. It powered it all and the compact size with the handle folded down is great. It fits in the bed of my pickup under the tonneau cover. So far, so good as long as it lasts...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HURRICANE SANDY WOW i was skeptical of its quality an such, but WOW was i wrong. here in the northeast with no power for days on end, this was a god send. its a lil noisy but who cares, it ran my house at better then stated 4 gallons for 11 hours, i got 15 lil more. on sites we use generators all the time, this performed just as well for more bang for the buck. i'm impressed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from affordable quality I received the generator via UPS on friday and set it up sat. Added oil, gas and ONE pull later (in 22 degree temps) it was running. I ran it for about 10 minutes before loading it to test it out. All the oulets worked and I ran a 12 amp chainsaw on one outlet and a 12 amp leaf blower on the other at the same time just to test it. I used the chainsaw to cut some tree branches and the wife used the leaf blower to blow the powdered snow off the deck. I ran it for 40 minutes (using 24 of the 29 amps) and it never even hiccuped. so far so good. Hopefully it does that well when it's really needed. Oh, and it is slightly quieter then my B&S engine lawn mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!!
