Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Performer Bought this about 2 years ago when my 15 yr old Coleman finally gave up the ghost and only used a couple times prior to this week. Severe thunderstorms and high winds knocked out power all over the Chicago area. After a 1 pull start this generator has been running non stop for 4 days so far and performing like a champ. I have it connected with a 220v cord with 2 male ends and its running the entire house including the well pump and 2 sump pumps minus the central a/c. The only negative comment I have is after running for 2 days one of the bolts on the handle came loose and needed to be tightened back up, no big deal, took about 45 seconds. July 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far so good! My husband just purchased this generator about a week ago. The ironic part of the purchase is that when we returned home from the store our power was out. This is the third generator we have owned. The previous two were unable to power our 3/4 hp well pump which is over 200 ft deep. Everything about this generator works as advertised and it barely flinched when the well pump kicked on. It came completely assembled. Gas, oil and 1 pull of the cord and it was up and running. It sat unused for a week so my husband decided to start it. Once again, 1 pull did the trick. September 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great so far..... bought this generator in December of 2013, and have used it approximately 3 times totaling 70+ hours, and so far it has worked great. Starts up easy, and have had zero issues so far. October 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good Haven't needed to use it yet but hooked it up to try it out and I can run my whole house including microwave and coffee pot and still have room for more stuff if needed but it won't be put under that much load at one time just the one time to see what it would run pretty well pleased December 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent generator Purchased this generator a few weeks ago and just used it during a 3 day power outage. Performed flawlessly. No surging, no fluctuation in power as load changed when heavy draw appliances such as the coffeepot cycled on and off. Starts on the first pull, except when I first started it after purchase when it took two pulls. I like that the manufacturer includes a quart of oil in the box. What I like even more is that then engine oil sump is exactly one quart in capacity - puts the oil level right in the middle of the dipstick (another nice feature). So much better than engines that require something like 26.3 ounces of oil! The usage meter is nice - good to know how many hours you've run. The generator is quieter than my old unit that had less power. The frame is sturdy, and I like the the frame, wheels and handle are assembled at the factory. Just unpack it, add the oil and go. Great value! June 30, 2013
