Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far so good Got my generator all set up and ready for this winters power outages. Started up perfectly after I got the wheels, oil and fuel in it. Set up of the wheels were easy. I left the unit on the shipping pallet and used a floor jack to jack up one side at a time to install the wheels/feet. The included oil funnel worked perfectly, no oily mess like other reviews have stated. I also noticed that the oil drain has a fitting attached with a open/close valve with a length of tubing to drain the oil out and away from the machine without an oily mess, very nice. All I have to do now is hook up a battery tender for it. I'm hoping this generator gives me plenty of trouble free life. November 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A WORKHORSE This Generator performed tremendously thru Storm Sandy. November 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by A real beast of a generator During the latest East Coast storm and power outage, this generator ran without a problem for 80 straight hours stopping only to refuel. It powered a 3.5 ton central ac unit, a refrigerator, a stand-up freezer, 2 ceiling fans and a big screen tv with no problem whatsover in 100 degree heat. Only complaint is the 82 decibel noise level is loud but a small price to pay to be comfortable. July 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality product, Subaru engine, Assembled in USA!! Subaru engines are just a good as Honda engines but much lower priced. This generator can run your whole house with no problems, has electric start and idle control so it will use less fuel and is quieter when there is no load on the generator. This generator is also low total harmonic distortion so you can run any sensitive electronics with no worries of damage. The best part is it is one of the last assembled in USA generators you can buy. March 21, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by A machine like this needs to be in running condition when it leaves the store. I got this generator for emergency back up. I got it home and put the wheels on it. Put gas and oil in it. The engine fired up and ran fine. However no voltage. I called the help line and went through some steps but still no power. I took it back to Home Depot. I asked to either fix this machine or get another. They ordered another. January 1, 2014
