7,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 152.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I absolutely do not recommend this generator. Bought it on the 2016 Black Friday special, picked... I absolutely do not recommend this generator. Bought it on the 2016 Black Friday special, picked it up on Dec. 1st. and when we opened the box, we found out you cannot take it back to Home Depot. Started right up with the recoil start the first time (two pulls), but that was it for 3 starts and then the recoil mechanism broke. So, 3 days since we picked it up and now we cannot start it without a battery. Contacted the manufacturer (Buffalo Tools) in St. Louis about the recoil. I guess they are aware of this because they didn't hesitate to send me another recoil. It takes 7 to 10 days to get it. And, cannot find a battery sized to their instructions. Amazon, Wal-mart and others do not have. So, the battery cradle that comes with it won't fit any of the available batteries including those that they recommend. Also, it comes with a L14 four prong 240 volt outlet. Probably for electrical code reasons, but our house is wired with a L6 three prong outlet. House built in 2008 with full generation capacity and hook-up, but only 2+1 10 gauge wiring. Check your house connection before you buy. You will have to convert.

Although I haven't needed to use my generator yet, I did assemble it, start it, and put a load on it to make sure it would perform when I do need it. It ran perfectly and handled any load I put on it ( Refrigerator, lights, etc., most importantly, the coffee maker ). There were only a couple of things I think they should change: The size of the print in their user guide ( It was very small and hard to read ) and an update to the recommended battery information ( The batteries recommended either had the +/- on the wrong side, or wouldn't fit into the battery holder, and all the model numbers were outdated ).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buyer beware! I bought this generator because of its propane capability. My first time to use it ... Buyer beware! I bought this generator because of its propane capability. My first time to use it was at deer camp early November. 1st 20 lb. tank stopped with about 25% of the propane left in the bottle. Tanks 2,3 and 4 exhibited the same problem. Reason I know 25% was left in tank and the generator would not run was when I had them refilled. With the reduced run time ( which I expected) and not using all of the propane became a problem more than expected. Called customer service and the answer I got was it was to cold. I should wrap the bottle in a blanket! I hunt in Arkansas and the low temperature that week was low 40s. If you want a warm weather generator or use gas this one is OK. I had no other problems.

I use it as a backup generator for my house, for emergency use. I have a generator panel, and this generator can run the major circuits I need (Pump, Furnace, Fridges, and even small kitchen appliances!). It's easy to start, and being portable is a big win! It comes with a multitude of plugs, but I've only used the main generator outlet, but did try the others, to make sure they worked. Overall, a good product for a very good price!
