Rated 5 out of 5 by This Generator will suit our needs very well. We have four Parrots. Two Blue and Gold Macaws and two smaller Quakers. After a winter power outage, our bids got too cold. Out of fear for their health, we decided to get a portable generator. After some research and surviving Hugo on the coast of SC, I wanted a unit that could be powered by propane as it can be stored for long periods. Gasoline can not. In a large power outage, gasoline may not be available. This unit will nearly run out entire house. Use a good quality pipe dope to seal up the large reducer and cap if you are only going to power the unit with Gasoline or Propane. Pipe tape will leak. I had the unit assembled and running in about an hour. I used the choke and started it off Propane. It started after turning over about 4 times. I had a small issue during assembly and contacted Powerland by E-mail on a Sunday afternoon. I received a phone call from them on that Monday. We discussed the problem and a replacement part was shipped out. Ten minutes to replace the part and the unit is now 100%. Several plugs are included with the unit as well as a 12v plug suitable for charging batteries. We feel better now knowing that our birds will be kept warm in a winter power outage and our food will be kept safe in the event of a summer power outage. An added benefit, our local propane provider told me he would give me my replacement propane in the event of a major outage If I brought the Generator with me to power his equipment and get my tanks refilled and let him refill a few others for customers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product, Accessories and Manual not dso Great The generator works great. The manual did not describe the wheel installation well. The attachment of the ground cable was not clear. The 30 amp 240 VAC plug was inferior, as the one terminal screw stripped out with very little torque applied. January 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 10,000 peak watt tri fuel generator I ordered the unit on HomeDepot online and it arrived for in store for pick up. This is convenient because I my not be home for a home delivery and I can pick up at my convenience. I took it home and assembled the unit. It was straight forward wheels and handles. The one thing you have to make sure to hook up correctly is the ground wire from the battery. I've read older posts where guys couldn't get the battery start to work for them and I think its because they didn't secure the ground cable to the bolt above the pull start on generator housing. They put a convenient red arrow sticker next to it so its easy to find. I added oil and set the proper switches for 120v output. Hit the starter button and it fired right up. I let it warm up a bit and started plugging in appliances for testing. All worked well. I then used the fuel saver feature where it kicks up or down the engine speed based on power demand.No demand and the idle drops to a low rpm almost to the point where it sounds like its going to cut out. I would suggest making sure the unit is warmed up before using this feature. My goal with this unit is to run it off my natural gas main to the house if the power goes out. This will give me an endless supply of fuel for extended outages. I'm having a cert. plumber install a 3/4 quick disconnect fitting on the main feed into the house. I having an electrican add a quick disconnect 50 amp inlet box and tranfer switch to the house. If power goes out I flip transfer switch, plug in gas and electric let the unit warm up and the plug in the generator for whole house power. Total investment of around $2200 which is a lot cheaper that a whole house generator installed and that only gets use when the power goes out. I now have a 10,000 generator for power outages and for camping with my RV. I'll get my money back in camping use alone! Its also a good selling point for my house having it wired for back up power. The generator has lots of features for multiple uses 120V/240V etc. It claims to be computer safe < 5% distortion. I haven't tested that yet and am a little worried about that claim. To be safe my expensive stuff I will run through surge/backpower units until I can check out the output distortion. The unit is not excessively loud and gets even quieter in fuel saver mode. I have more testing to do with the unit but so far I'm happy with it and all the features. According to the manufacture you can only run 12 hours straight and then have to cool down 2 hours. So keep that in mind for extended outages. January 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Learning experience for first time generator owner The freight company delivered it to inside my garage. Great company, DL. The assembly was easy. The start up went great when I finally got the right HP hose from the lpg tank to the the gen and tightened all the loose connections that showed leak bubbles. Ran it for about an hour with two heaters and a refrigerator as load. No issues that I could tell. November 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Powerland tri fuel generator I found this generator ran great on gas and propane, not so great at first on NG.Was using a 3/8 gas hose at first and the motor seem to starve for fuel. Change to 1/2 hose and it ran much better. Don't try to start on NG, you will kill the battery and want to pull you hair out. The best way is to start on gas, once the motor warms up turn the gas valve off, as the motor starts to starve slowly turn the NG valve on. Remember to have the choke completely open. April 28, 2013
