Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Durable, ASSEMBLED IN U.S.A., Plenty of power, reliable. I bought this generator after a blizzard hit and half of the state lost power. It starts on second pull no matter what the temperature is. Has enough wattage to run most of the house's appliances. It has 20 AND 30 amp outlets (amps are VERY important). It comes with the storm package although I used my own Mobil 1 Extended Performance oil. I HIGHLY recommend this product. November 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great for me Bought this generator before a winter storm in late 2013, didn't end up loosing power but was glad to have it for my new home. Followed the storage instructions and put the generator away for the summer. Pulled it back out this fall to test it out and found the recoil spring for the starter was shattered. I figured I would be stuck paying to fix this problem, but I contacted the manufacturer of the engine (not Powermate, but they gave me the contact info) and they sent the replacement part out free of charge. Vary happy with the customer service from this company. December 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this little dynamo! we purchased this for Hurricane Sandy - I must admit I would have bought another model if I'd had a choice, thank God I didn't. Comes fully assembled, wheeled it out of the box, added quart of oil and 7 gallons of gas and fired on the first pull. It's easy to manuever (of course when not running), stores easily. It's loud but when you have no electricity, that is music to the ears. Hurricane Sandy took out our power and we ran the generator for the 10.3 hours we were without electricity without a refill. We powered a fridge, a freezer, LCD and LED TVs, cable box, PS3, electric fireplace, coffee pot, lights and charged cell phones. Couldn't ask for more. October 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Update - Power Out and Working Great! Well Sandy knocked out our power almost two hours ago - I had cords connected since last night - went outside and started her up with no problem - running light, pump and cable booster in basement on a 50 ft 14 gauge cord. Another two 100 ft 12 gauge cords are running into the first floor of the house and powering two lamps (one actually a halogen flood light), Fios modem, big screen TV, computers and chargers - no flickering - all working flawlessly - I have 10 gallons of gas on reserve and will check on things after about 9 hours of running. After the storm will look into hooking into the main panel - very happy with this unit!!! October 29, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ready to Go Bought mine for hurricane Issac and it started first pull. Use it for about 47 hours with just stopping to refuel with no problems. Loud, but it performrd great. September 14, 2012
