Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ran for 36 hours straight. Ran this generator for about 36 hours straight at one point with half-hour breaks to cool down and refuel. Had two refrigerators, lights, fans, and a 5K BTU window air conditioner and it seemed to hang in there just fine. If you are hooking this up to your house power, it will NOT run your AC, hot water heater, or oven. I did have one small problem with the generator. One evening, the generator would run from anywhere from 10-20 minutes and then start "hunting" while running and shut itself down. I'm thinking this was a combination of poor quality gasoline and running this unit for so long; I shut it down for about 6 hours overnight and then it started up and ran fine again the next morning with no further issues. If I was in a position to spend a bit of time researching and buying a generator, I would honestly spend a little extra money and get a better known brand - this was made in China and the wheels on the frame felt a little cheap. The higher quality brands are probably a little quieter too; this generator is probably as loud as a lawn mower. I was in a pinch after a major storm and was facing a week long power outage - this is the only generator Home Depot had at the time. The store itself was running on generator power. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this generator. It has plenty of power, seemed reliable, and the price is right. July 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VERY PLEASE Had this generator now for just under 2 years. Purchased it as an emergency back up and fortunately haven't had to use it for that. So far I've put around 50+ hours on it. Haven't had a singal issue with it. My only compliant is that it weights a ton. I guess I can't really consider that a complaint for this generator since any generator of this size would weight the same. All in all, it puts out plenty of power for my needs, does well with gas consumption and is very reasonably price for the total wattage output. I just need to make sure I have an extra set of hands when I'm loading it into the back of my truck. April 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product This is a good generator for the size, price, and quality of construction. I would recommend it. May 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Runs like a charm! Thanks Home Depot for getting these in at last minute and calling me. It was a lifeasaver although I think $15 for 2 gal plastic gas can was a bit over the top. I thought it should have gas in it for that price. Ran 2 refrigerators, freezer, computer, 2 tvs with dvd, cable/phone box, fans, window a/c, and several lights. ran without straining. Did 3 hr oil change and then ran for over 3 days while power was out due to hurricane. Runs about 10 hr on 6gal tank. Thanks again. September 4, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy 2012 backup Bought this two days after Sandy hit, had no power for almost 5 days, worked like a champ for the 48 hours (total time over 5 days) I used it. Changed the oil today (10w-30) and now it should be good if we lose power during the winter. Remember to add fuel stabilizer if storing more than 3 months, and or drain the gas if storing more than 1 year without use. Ran: 2 refrigerators, a tv,a laptop, dsl modem, 2 lamps and alternated a space heater and microwave when the refrigerators weren't plugged in. Got around 11 hours on each full tank of gas (6 gal). Very pleased with this emergency purchase. Just a FYI, unit is made in China, but what isn't made in China these days? November 5, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ran Everything I Needed Plus Some Purchased the unit due to an ice storm just before Christmas. Easy to assemble by flashlight. Started right up and ran like a top for 48 hours straight. I shut down for an oil change then ran for another 72 hours without issue. Ran fridge, freezer, furnace, and well pump with some leftover for lights and TV. January 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little machine! Just came through Blizzard that hit us 2-8-13. Took our chances and went to Home Depot and they had just received a shipment. Bought this one because our old generator worked one day and we were in need of a replacement. Got this one 2 days into no power and it started up like a charm! Already had a transfer switch, but old cord would not work with new generator. Had to find an electrician under challenging circumstances to change cord to fit our transfer box. It started right up and ran tv's, side by side frig, dishwasher, micro and a few lights, but most important of all an oil boiler that heats the house and water, all worked at the same time! We turned it off at night for 8 hours to conserve gas as no gas stations were near by, but, it ran straight from 8am to 10pm each day! We were out of power for 4 days and this saved us. We did not have internet service, but that was a Verizon thing. Very pleased with its performance! February 15, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by don't forget the power cord We haven't got to use it yet. Opened the box and there is no power cord!!! For $100 more you can get the 6000watt that comes with a power cord. More power and a power cord. Stupid that no cord is included in this product February 20, 2015
