Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NOUPSISBETTER Should last a lifetime...
Runs both the A/C and microwave...while everything else is turned on in my RV. It never even seems like it's working hard at all...absolutely sound investment. On the subject of "sound" it IS a little bit loud (but not very...just being selfish). If Subaru put a more functional muffler/resonator on this thing it would be that "Ten" we're all looking for. Right out of the box, it started on the first gentle pull. Amazing. That's it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mark So far so good
I like this unit. The most impressive thing was how easy it started up the first time. It was kind of funny because I gave it a yank like I do all the other things I have like this and it started before I was through with the pull which really surprised me, and that caused me to drop the pull handle and that is something the manual says to no do. Anyway, it starts great.
Now as to why I gave it less than awesome ratings: First, the online description says it doesn't come with oil, so I bought a quart of oil. The online manual does not tell you that it ships with oil, so I ended up with an extra quart of oil and the unit only takes about half a quart.
I gave it a less than good rating in the features category because some other brands have one like this with similar specs that also have a battery start! (If I had known that before I bought the unit I would have probably bought the other unit.)
Also, nothing is mentioned about the fact that you are supposed to actually ground this unit with the standard house grounding method of an 8 foot copper clad grounding rod!! Anyway I spoke with a licensed electrician and he said that no one grounds portable units like this in practice. So it would be a lot better if the manual said, that "grounding is good, but not necessary.
I cannot give it better reviews until I have had it longer and actually used it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Skisplat Loud!!!
Just bought this to use with an RV while camping. I fired it up for the first time and it was really loud. I couldn't stand within 10 feet of it without ear protection. It is rated at 73 decibels at 23 feet away. I have a decibel meter and it was reading about 85-90 decibels at 23 feet. That's 2-3 times louder than rated. I'm not sure if the muffler was defective or if the decibel rating was severely exaggerated, either way there is no way that you could use this in a campground without disturbing a lot of people, even during the day. I returned it and will be looking for something else.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mouse high altitude operation
Easy to assemble, started easily, ran great, BUT when reading the instructions it said that to operate at high altitude (above 5000 ft.) the unit must be taken to an authorized Subaru dealer for modification. Almost all of Wyoming is above 5000 ft. The unit if used as shipped would run too rich and foul the plugs among other things. The repair is fairly simple but I was concerned if not done by a dealer there may be a warranty issue. There are no authorized Subaru shops in Wyoming. I returned the unit as I could not use it.
