Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bought for Commercial 24' Water Slide Worked out of the box with one pull. It even comes with oil supplied. It comes assembled but you have to put the handle and feet yourself. Make sure you have some open wrenches, I had 2 sets of the Husky ratcheting type from HD. I needed this for a commercial 24' waterslide that had 2 1.5HP blowers. It worked like charm. With one fill up, it lasted the whole day (about 8 hours). It is pretty darn heavy though so do not think it is light. I bleed Honda Red and that's why I chose this over the others you see in HD. They make great motors even though I never heard of Powermate. I recommend it. June 26, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Generator I was very pleased with the generator. It started up on the second pull. There are two short coming with the unit on delevery. First I unloaded the unit assembled the wheels and them discovered that they had not shipped any oil with the unit. I had to go back to the store for oil. Also there is no fuel line filter on the unit which is a must in our area. I installed one. I have purchased other Powermate units and they have come with these two items in the original package.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent. Plenty of power. Starts on the first pull every time. It's great. Easy to start. Relatively quiet. Plenty of power to run pretty much everything in the house. Had it installed on a Wednesday. A storm knocked out the power on the ensuing Saturday. The generator has been working since (It's now Tuesday). Heat, water, lights and more. The generator makes life good. November 1, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smart Purchase We are new to the generator world--told to get one with a Honda engine. Powermate has the Honda engine for a price that is within our reach. Started right up and was a great help in the recent storm, and will be even more helpful now that we have a transfer kit installed. Wish we had purchased this sooner--it brings peace of mind. Delivery from online Home Depot, via Estes Trucking was excellent. November 21, 2012
