Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ala1doc Great investment
I purchased this generator as a back up and tool. It worked as designed straight out of the box. Wheels were easy to assemble and the generator started after just a couple of pulls when primed correctly. Since then it has started on the first pull. I was impressed about how well that it handled the load put on it. I would definitely recommend this generator to anyone. A big plus was that I got it on sale and saved some money. It was for sure the biggest bang for the buck.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dervy 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.

Generator would shut off randomly. Sometimes an hour, sometimes 5 minutes (no load). Returned to store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blkhwks1 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.
