Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by More then what I expected The generator was delivered right to my yard ,I put on the tires ,the pins on the handle and connected the battery .Filled the oil that it came with added the gasoline chocked it pressed the start button ,started right up...Ready for that power fail will run everything I need.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Plenty of Power, but a little loud Was surprised to find out that it didn't have Auto-idle, so it runs full speed and is a little loud. Might be too loud for camping. Main reason for purchase was to power a garage and well. Had a little trouble running my air compressor, but that was due to me turning down the running speed. I also plan on using it when I build my house. The battery doesn't seem big enough, and it doesn't always have enough juice to turn over the engine. Starts very easy with the pull rope. Just 2 pulls.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Generator purchase Generator was easy to assemble - found that fuel vent line to carbon canister was crimped and I had to shorten it for it to work properly - Instructions and manual were easy to understand and follow - Unit started easily for first run in - Voltage output was proper - I have not had the opportunity to use the generator yet with a power outage, so I cannot rate how well it performs under actual load conditions supplying power to my home December 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It's a Honda motor!!!! Great generator! Has the Honda motor and 6800w is more than sufficient to power up my needs. My old generator died last two days of the Sandy power outage so this was my choice after careful deliberations. 8 gal steel gas tank is plenty of storage and the only thing I would have liked to see was a voltage and ampere meter and no fuel gauge. Other than that it has it all including a very easy to use trickle charger for the battery. September 12, 2013
