So here's the story: We purchased this unit in Oct. of 2013. Use the machine for emergency power in the winter to run the blower on my heat stove and some small appliances and lights.
Tried to use the machine today 8/2/2016 for some relief from the outside heat due to poiwer outtage. The machine wil start and run but does not put out continuous power. This machine has less than 25 hours of runtime. Smarter tools says at least $250.00 plus shipping to fix . Dont think so. i'll look for new and different brand.

Awesome delivery. Home Depot rocks. The box had oil on it and just hoping it is not our generator. The delivery guy did not know where the oil came from when asked. Set up went well but had to spend another 200.00 on cord and cover. The cover advertised with this generator was way too small. Easy start and easy to run. Time will tell if it works when the power if out.

Absolutely delighted with this generator. One turn of the key and it fires up. Runs for about 14 to 15 hours at night with ceiling fan and 2 C-Paps running (at camp at night) and more appliances in the AM including hot water tank. Highly recommended. I know it would run our whole house if needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kbreeze The electric start is a shoulder saver.
This generator came after my power was out for 6 days due to an ice storm that devastated are area. Having to borrow one for the duration, I quickly set to the Home Depot site to place my order. Once I received this generator and some minor assembly, and adding necessary fluids it started up the very 1st time. Now I'm prepared for any power crippling storm that might hit. My neighbors came buy to check it out and all 3 placed an order. I will be hard wiring it to my house once winter breaks here and I suspect I will be doing the same for my neighbors. I based my decision on this generator after extensive research on other models, found this one to be the most for the money.

Powering my food truck is hard work and this generator is handling it very well. Also, it is easy to move around and operate. It could be a little quieter but all in all a great deal.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NC Stopped working after 1 year
We actually use our generator 3 - 4 times/week. After about 1 year, the generator stopped producing power - the rotor needed rewinding. The estimate was $400, at minimum, if we could even find someone to do the rewinding. The repair man gave us the best advice possible - buy a new generator. It's also pretty loud compared to similar generators. If you need a reliable generator for regular use, then spend a little more $ and buy a quality, name brand generator.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ForestNerd Value for the money
When you do the comparisons you just cant beat the Smarter Tools 7500 Watt Generator. Set up was easy and directions were a breeze. Having it delivered free of charge to my garage was even better! I live in a National Forest and I've lost power three times on just the last month... having this gem is real peace of mind in the event of prolonged power loss. Thanks Home Depot!
Just wish it had outlet covers for rain and dust, but with a little ingenuity it can be overcome. Be advised, don't use this generator to power sensitive electronics without a line conditioner and/or UPS. But it will provide you enough power to make all your neighbors jealous as they sit sweating in darkness and silence while you catch the last half of the game with ice in your tea!
