Questions & Answers

Is it possible to change the carb so that you can run the unit off of Natural Gas?

Asked by: Farmout
Thank you for asking, Farmout. This unit can not be transformed into use with natural gas. We do not recommend altering this unit either. Altering the unit may have a decline in performance as well as it will void your warranty. I hope this helps and we appreciate your interest in Ridgid! -Keri

6,800-Watt Idle Down Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator with Yamaha MZ360 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 275.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product. Bought this model 4 years ago to mostly use for a RV. At that time, HD had $100.... Amazing product. Bought this model 4 years ago to mostly use for a RV. At that time, HD had $100.00 off all Rigid Generators, free shipping to the house, and the nice lady on the customer service line gave me a additional 10% off for being a veteran, plus interest free financing. Bottom line was 810.00 delivered. Gave it a test run and it fired right up. Stuck it in the garage and never touched it for another 4 years, We had a storm which knocked out power for about 2 1/2 days. Took it out of the garage, started on the second pull and ran like a charm. Powered the fridge, freezer, lights, TV's ...everything I needed and could throw at it. Even recharged it's own battery. After 4 years of non-use I figured the battery was going to be shot, Nope! The electric start fired right up after I shut it down to refuel. Could not ask for a better product. Also easy to move and well balanced. It's a heck of a generator all the features one could ask for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good performance, but questionable durability Generator has worked great, but less then 2 years old and the alternator part of the generator is starting to rust. Even the shaft has a bunch of rust on it. Only a matter of time before it fails. Always been stored in a garage as well. Only 2 hours of run time just to test it every 6 months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this generator I have had the unit for over a year, and it has spent most of that time being repaired. The longest it has run is 5 minutes without shutting down. I have had the fuel lines, filter, carb, and electrical components replaced and nothing has solved the issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried to buy this generator as Sandy was bearing down. My local HD was out of any generators. T... Tried to buy this generator as Sandy was bearing down. My local HD was out of any generators. They located this Rigid unit which I paid for on line at the store. The Erie Store held it for me. Sandy ended up being a no show in Northwest PA, But I have used it several times for projects that needed power. Built a ATV bridge on our club trails, powered the whole house through several power outages and it has run like a champ. I highly recommend this unit to anyone considering a backup or job site power source.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the simple fix !!!!! i had to post this since there isnt any "comment" feature. the fix for this generator is a very simple one !!! i understand that spending $1000.00 on an item you would expect it to work correctly right "outta the box", but my home depot in new jersey was fixing these on-site and im assuming the ones on the floor now have already had the fuel ventilation kit installed. i looked at many other generators including generac and yamaha (which are outrageously priced) and the quality of them is not even close to this ridgid. if you find one of these gens make sure the kit was installed or have them install it,once that is done this gen works flawlessly ,great quality, great generator !!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Need to use my generator for the first time today during a power outage and this thing is useless... Need to use my generator for the first time today during a power outage and this thing is useless now. It started making a terrible metal on metal noise and I had to shut it down. The motor or alternator is making contact with something internally that it shouldn't be causing a terrible noise and now it's just stuck and won't crank. I'm suspecting its in the alternator, but I cant take it apart or I void the warranty. I went online to find a service center and anyone near by appears to not be in business. GREAT! I'd stay away from this brand unless your 100% sure you can get it serviced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have the non electric start version, it has been nothing but a headache. It has low hours on it... I have the non electric start version, it has been nothing but a headache. It has low hours on it and started having issues once the warranty ran out. Now it starts and stops immediately then leaks gas everywhere. I have cleaned the carburetor several times, replaced the spark plug and checked gas lines. Today I went to work on it again in hopes I missed something and now the pull start won't let me pull, comes out about 1 foot and stops dead. I really expected a lot more out of this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy assembly and start-up. Just purchased in Aug 2017 and used once. No problems with capacity or functionality. It works on my 2800 sq ft home. Performed as advertised right out of the box. Only blemish is its weight for my wife to cart around garage. She can do it but it is challenging.
