Thanks to hurricane Matthew, we put our generator to test, it passed with fling colors. No issues at all.
This generator will run most things in a regular house but not all at once.
It most likely will not run your heating and air.
It did run the water heater with the refrigerators and freezers off.
Lights and fans are no problem.
When sizing a generator, POWER (watts) equals Amperes times voltage . So if you have something that pulls 5 amps and runs on 120 volts, 5 x 120= 600 watts.
Our generator would run about 10 hours on a tank of gas. I have 50 plus hours on it now,

I used it this past weekend on one of the hottest days of the year to dj an out door event with no shade from 8am - 6pm and boy did that thing kick some serious BUTT I was running a full dj setup with 2 popcorn and cotton candy machines from beginning to the very end the tank was still 3/4 full great machine and well worth the price I will be picking up a 2nd one..

I would recommend this to any one, but make sure that what ever you are trying to run, runs on less then 30 amps. My AC runs on 39 amps and had to return it.

This is a great product. This generator can handle lots of power. Being in construction Ihave hooked up a lot of power equipment to it and it has performed flawlessly.

Purchased the generator on line and had it delivered to my local Home Depot which was free freight. Great program.
When the customer service person brought the generator out from the back room the box was basically trash. He said that once I got the generator home and finished the assembly if there was something that got broken during shipping to bring it back and Home Depot would replace it.
The assembly when very smoothly, nothing was broken. After attaching the battery cables to the battery and putting gas in the gas tank the generator started on the first try. Could not be more pleased. Bring on the next power outage, I am ready!

Bought this generator for the Honda engine. Then I found out Honda made in Thailand. Started and ran until under a load. Took to the authorized repair shop, carburetor bad. Honda won't cover it because it's not their generator, Powerstroke won't cover it because it's a engine problem. So I returned it to Home Depot, showed them receipt from repair shop needs carburetor, they ran it , smelled gas etc, etc finally seemed convinced it wasn't running right. Their computer system seemed unable to do anything other than give me a store credit. I don't need a store credit I need a generator. Finally got them to recommend what they sell the most without promblems. A Rigid 6800W with a Yamaha engine.

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.

ship to home home depot will charge $50. Pickup at store free very good customer service. The assembly took about 30 minutes. Great generator Has the Honda motor The generator is pretty heavy. put gas and oil It fired up the first try let it run for 15 minutes. Then test turn on all the power make sure every thing work it's excellent. Ready for winter The electric start is awesome. Was surprised to find out that it didn't have Auto-idle ON/OFF. Nothing negative to say. I highly recommend.
