Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Honeydew Amazing Power and Reliability
Bought to replace a smaller generator so more of the house could have power in an outage. Assembly was simple, filled oil and gas and ran for ten minutes. It started instantly and ran smooth. Two days later a substation had a fire and the generator was forced into use. We were out for 41 hours and it ran perfectly. Within two days another outage and another 12 hours on generator. I am totally happy with this product. The only thing I feel it lacks is a fuel gage. It does, however, use less fuel than the specs say it burns. I filled every 12 hours with about six gallons.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TPS Good generator
The assembly took about 30 minutes. Nothing to it. I had the generator delivered to my home. And that delivery was not free. ($50 ) If delivered to my nearest store, it is free, but then the pallet & box have to be handled to get it home, and the generator is pretty heavy. It fired up the first try, and was quite a bit louder that I expected, but was a little quieter than my old generator that dropped a rod ( Tecumseh motor).
I am impressed with the overall quality, and glad I have the Honda motor. I like the solid rubber tires. No flats ever! Flat tires on a heavy generator causes it to be very difficult to move.
I'll use the new generator for lights, two freezers, a refrigerator, and also to keep our deep water well pumped up in case of an outage. Add in a couple of fans in the house, and it will easily handle all of them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrivewayMechanic It's running our whole house as I write this
We bought this unit a couple of years ago, and this is the first extended outage during which we've gotten to really test it. It runs our well pump with a 500 ft well, our furnace, all of our lights, a TV, a chest freezer and a refrigerator. I've been cautious in running everything at once, but I'm pretty sure it could handle it. I've run all of the above except for the well pump simultaneously. When we shower, I just turn off a few other items and run the pump and the oil furnace.
It's been humming away for about 24 hours straight now since the heavy snow took out the local power in southern New Hampshire, with only breaks for fuel replenishment.
The electric start is awesome. You don't have to fight with it, not that you would, since the Honda motor is just about bulletproof. The fuel tank is nice and large. Every time I go out there every few hours to top it off, there's still plenty of fuel in there. I could probably run it all night, but I've been checking on it about every five hours because I'm paranoid like that.
The only thing is that it can run a little rough after a cold start, and that's a pretty minor complaint. It usually settles out after a few minutes. Also, if you run something heavy off of it, like a microwave, it can also start the motor surging up and down a bit. Nothing major, but enough to make you want to unplug sensitive items. It doesn't have fancy inverter electronics and it doesn't throttle down at low demand like more expensive, purebred Honda units, but you get the reliability and ruggedness of the Honda motor at a more affordable price.
Overall, it's a fantastic value for the money, and the extra dollars from cheaper models buy you a much more robust setup. We're really happy with ours.
