Hi Steve, you will want to check the amp ratings of the cord and also see if it is 4 prong or just 3 on the cord. Hope that helps!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Generator Easy start up , oil included.. runs great Folding Handle a great idea, works great May 17, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Random shut offs Generator would shut off randomly. Sometimes an hour, sometimes 5 minutes (no load). Returned to store. January 17, 2016
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 5kw generator This product started on the first pull on the starter. September 29, 2015
